THE DRILL SERGEANT: Encounter Resources (ASX: ENR) has recommenced drilling at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Lamil copper-gold project in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.
Lamil covers an area of around 61 square kilometres and is located 25km northwest of the major copper-gold mine at Telfer, owned by Newcrest Mining.
The current drilling is focused on the Dune Prospect that sits in the northwest of Lamil and consists of a gold supergene zone the company outlined in previous broad spaced drilling.
“Drilling in November 2020 expanded the near surface copper-gold mineralisation at Dune to over 800 metres in strike,” Encounter Resources managing director Will Robinson said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“In the south of Dune, we intersected stacked layers of primary mineralisation with strengthening copper and a multi-element proximal signature.
“This RC program will focus on the southern area of Dune where the mineralisation remains open and strengthening.”
