THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) reported completion of a RC drilling program at the company’s Tarraji-Yampi project in the West Kimberley region of Western Australia.
Dreadnought Resources drilled 18 RC holes across the Chianti, Fuso, Paul’s Find, Grant’s Find and Orion targets, encountering mineralisation and/or alteration across most.
The drilling returned several intercepts, including thick chalcopyrite rich massive and semi-massive sulphides in the first hole ever drilled into Orion.
The results included:
13 metres of massive to semi-massive sulphides intersected at Orion containing around 5 to 20 per cent chalcopyrite (copper sulphide); and
5m of chalcopyrite-rich quartz veining (around 10 to 30 per cent chalcopyrite) at Grant’s Find.
“Intersecting massive copper bearing sulphide in the first hole drilled at Orion is a watershed moment for the Tarraji-Yampi project,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Furthermore, significant mineralisation and/or alteration was intersected at Grant’s Find, Fuso, Paul’s Find and Chianti with a number of targets still to be tested and new targets emerging.
“We have rushed assays and expedited downhole and surface geophysical surveys to assist with prioritising follow up drilling.
“Our obvious priorities are Orion and Grant’s Find with other priorities to be set as further information is forthcoming.
“We look forward to returning in September 2021 with follow-up RC drilling and to completing the diamond program at Texas in the meantime.”
