THE DRILL SERGEANT: Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) has identified a large new gold anomaly, which it claims to highlight the exploration upside at the company’s Lake Roe gold project, east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Breaker Resources said its recent aircore (AC) drilling outlined the anomaly, situated 1.3 kilometres southeast of the Bombora gold deposit on the Claypan prospect, over a length of 2.5km and a width of up to 500 metres.
4 metres at 1.36 grams per tonne gold from 40m;
4m at 0.95g/t gold from 48m;
12m at 1.32g/t gold from 48m, including 4m at 2.75g/t gold from 48m;
2m at 1.16g/t gold from 80m to EOH; and
3m at 2.66g/t gold from 72m to EOH.
“The drilling results have outlined a significant zone of gold anomalism, designated the Claypan prospect, up to 2.5 kilometres-long and up to 500 metres-wide, Breaker Resources said in its ASX announcement.
“The scale and tenor of the gold anomalism is comparable with that associated with the Bombora and Crescent primary discoveries.
“The anomaly is partially coincident with a newly identified, Bombora Sill-like quartz dolerite up to 100 metres wide.
“Visual logging data indicates that the Claypan dolerite has a gold-prospective granophyric unit at its western margin.
“End-of-hole multi-element geochemical data indicates anomalism in several elements including gold (up to 1.26g/t), silver (up to 0.65g/t) and tellurium, the most reliable pathfinder element for the Bombora and Crescent primary mineralisation.
“The results extend the overall strike length of the camp-scale Lake Roe oxide gold anomaly, including Bombora and Crescent to at least 8.5 kilometres.
