THE DRILL SERGEANT: Caprice Resources (ASX: CRS) released an update on recent activity at Solis prospect, located at the southern end of the company’s Island gold project (IGP) in the Murchison Region of Western Australia.
Caprice Resources carried out an aircore program at Solis earlier this year that delineated a plus-one-kilometre-long regolith gold anomalous zone.
This was followed up by an infill program consisting of 39 holes tightening the hole spacing in the main anomalous areas.
In-line with the first aircore program, 4m composite samples were collected downhole, with 1m resamples taken for composite samples that returned gold values greater than 0.1 grams per tonne gold.
Better 1m results from the infill program include:
1 metre at 3.6 grams per tonne gold from 37m;
1m at 1.3g/t gold from 34m; and
1m at 1.0g/t gold from 17m.
Caprice indicated the results from the infill program at Solis will be used to design an RC drilling program, which is scheduled for late June to early July.
“The maiden aircore program at Solis was an exceptional success, generating a large-scale anomaly in an untested area,” Caprice Resources managing director Andrew Muir said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“The scale and coherence of the anomaly is outstanding.
“This infill aircore program has confirmed the +1km gold anomaly and, in addition, it has enabled Caprice to effectively plan deeper RC drilling to test for mineralisation in fresh rock.
“We look forward to assessing the depth potential within the next few weeks.”
