THE DRILL SERGEANT: Corazon Mining (ASX: CZN) has temporarily shifted its focus domestically as it waits for drilling conditions to improve at the company’s Lynne Lake project in Canada.
Corazon Mining announced the commencement of drilling at the company’s Mt Gilmore copper-cobalt-gold project in New South Wales.
The drilling will target the priority eight kilometres-long Gordonbrook Hill – May Queen copper-cobalt-silver-gold anomaly, within the greater 20km long Mt Gilmore Trend.
This is the opening drill program for the Gordonbrook Hill target and comprises two core holes for a total of 900 metres, designed to test the area near the Gordonbrook Hill mineralised porphyry, identified by Corazon in 2020.
This porphyry intrusion is mapped at surface over approximately 300 metres and is semi-parallel with the strike of a well-defined geophysical anomaly (an Induced Polarisation chargeability-high corridor).
The company believes these coincident geochemical and geophysical features represent a genuine mineralised porphyry target, kilometres in scale, making Gordonbrook Hill the priority target at Mt Gilmore.
“We are excited about the very first drill holes into the high priority Gordonbrook Hill target at Mt Gilmore,” Corazon Mining managing director Brett Smith said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“The drilling will test new concepts, targeting one area of what looks to be a very large mineralised hydrothermal system.”
This current phase of drilling is expected to be completed over the next two months, with results released as they become available.
