THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) announced the intersection of sulphides by way of diamond drilling at the Texas target, part of the company’s Tarraji-Yampi project in the West Kimberley region of Western Australia.
Dreadnought Resources reported drill hole TXDD001 intersected dominantly pyrrhotite with minor pyrite and chalcopyrite from 56.75 to 57.55 metres hosted within the Ruins Dolerite.
The drill hole was positioned to test the shallow southern extent of a modelled EM plate.
Diamond core has been dispatched for sampling with assay results expected in August 2021.
Drilling of TXDD002, located approx. 150m to the northeast of TXDD001, will test the EM plate further down plunge with a planned hole depth of 180m.
It is expected that this hole will be completed in mid-July.
The company is currently preparing for a RC drilling program at Fuso and Paul’s Find copper-gold, Orion nickel-copper-PGE and Chianti-Rufina copper-zinc-silver targets drilling scheduled to commence in early July 2021.
“Confirmation of sulphides within the Ruins Dolerite is an exciting outcome for the first drill hole at Texas and significantly enhances the prospectivity of Texas as well as the recently defined EM plates at Orion,”
“This is a great start to our exploration program in the Kimberley and we look forward to progressing the diamond and RC drilling programs.”
