THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) has started a 36-hole RC drill program at the company’s Illaara gold-VMS-iron ore project in Western Australia.
Dreadnought Resources will commence by drilling 19 holes at Metzke’s Find, where it has previously encountered high-grade gold intercepts.
Once the Metzke’s Find drilling is complete, Dreadnought will move the rig approximately 10 kilometres north to Longmore’s Find and undertake the first drilling program targeting three forgotten historical lodes identified by Captain Longmore in the 1920s.
Longmore’s Find has a Lassiter’s Reef feel to it, having been unearthed by Dreadnought while researching the history of Metzke’s Find in a 1923 newspaper article discussing the results of the No. 3 State Prospecting Party’s discovery six miles north of Metzke’s Find.
Having achieved recent rock chips, up to 18 grams per tonne gold, Dreadnought is excited to accelerate exploration at Longmore’s Find.
“Dreadnought is excited to recommence drilling at Metzke’s Find to follow up on previous significant intercepts,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“As well, we will kick off the first ever drilling at the recently re-discovered Longmore’s Find.
“We have an exciting time ahead with drilling and results from Illaara prior to heading up to the Kimberley.”
