THE DRILL SERGEANT: Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) reported drilling results from the company’s 100 per cent-owned Lake Roe project, located east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Breaker Resources declared the recent drilling at Lake Roe had highlighted the gold discovery potential of the Kopai prospect, situated three kilometres north of the one-million-ounce Bombora gold deposit.
The company released results from the first 32 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes (BBRC1354-1385) of a 60- hole program targeting the 2km-long Kopai-Crescent area that is at the northern end of a recently expanded 9.5km-long aircore gold anomaly centred on the Bombora deposit.
Preliminary results from the first 32 holes include:
4 metres at 4.54 grams per tonne gold from 84m within 9m at 2.9g/t gold to EOH in (ending in mineralisation);
4m at 2.68g/t gold from 20m within 8m at 1.68g/t gold; and
4m at 2.53g/t gold from 20m within 8m at 1.63g/t gold.
Breaker is awaiting results for the remaining 28 RC drill holes that targeted a potential link between Kopai and the Crescent prospect, which is situated 1km to the south and hosts a 350m-long zone of continuous shallow gold mineralisation that is not in the Bombora Resource.
“The strong results at the Kopai prospect reinforce Breaker’s belief that Lake Roe is a significant new gold camp, centred on the one-million-ounce Bombora deposit, which itself continues to expand at depth,” Breaker Resources said in its ASX announcement.
“The results also continue to repeat the pattern of low-level oxide gold, and pathfinder anomalism, providing a reliable vector to primary mineralisation – a pattern seen at Bombora, Crescent, Claypan, and now Kopai.”
