Dreadnought Resources Scores Drilling and Geophysical Results from Tarraji-Yampi

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) supplied assay and geophysical results from RC and diamond drilling at the Tarraji-Yampi project, located in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources took receipt pf assays and downhole EM (DHEM) results have been received for 11 RC holes and two diamond holes drilled at Tarraji-Yampi in late 2023 that has delivered additional mineralisation and geological understanding for the project.

Two EIS co-funded diamond holes (KMRD056 and KMRD057) intersected laminated, brecciated and semi-massive sulphides extending mineralisation at the Orion deposit a further 100m down dip remaining open at depth and along strike.

Intercepts include:

4.2 metres at 1 per cent copper, 15.1 grams per tonne silver, and 0.01 per cent cobalt from 213m and 0.42m at 1.1 per cent copper, 2.7 per cent zinc, 80g/t silver and 4.1g/t gold from 257.82m; and

1.35m at 1 per cent copper, 0.01 per cent cobalt from 198.6m.

Dreadnought’s modelling of DHEM results from KMRD056 has demonstrated a conductive horizon that sits within a larger (300m x 230m) and highly conductive horizon that extends to the 500m depth of the Orion geophysical anomaly.

“The 2023 drilling program in the Kimberley was challenging and cut short due to unseasonable weather, bush fires and rig breakdowns,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“However, the program still delivered an extension to the Orion mineralisation and confirming mineralisation and or identifying significant off hole conductors from many of the holes drilled.

“And, thanks to the GSWA’s co-funded Exploration Incentive Scheme diamond holes drilled at Orion, there has been significant advancements in the understanding of the mineral systems active at Tarraji-Yampi including that Orion is a copper-gold-VMS system, similar to Degrussa in the Bryah Basin, which will improve our targeting and follow up programs.

“The program remains largely incomplete as originally intended and we look forward to applying our learnings and prioritizing targets for testing in 2024.”
