THE DRILL SERGEANT: Estrella Resources (ASX: ESR) has further enhanced the T5 discovery at the company’s Carr Boyd project, north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Estrella Resources announced the intersection of 12.25 metres of sulphides, including massive nickel-copper-iron sulphide, further confirming mineralised accumulations on the T5 basal contact at the Carr Boyd project.
Hole CBDD049A was the second diamond tail drilled by one of the two drilling rigs the company has on site.
The hole entered a position below the recently announced diamond drill hole CBD0048 that intersected 12.9m of nickel-copper-iron sulphides.
Hole CBDD049A is 40m south of the T5 discovery drill hole CBDD030 the company drilled in October 2020.
“The discovery of further massive sulphide accumulations on a basal contact position is very important to developing Carr Boyd as a significant nickel-copper sulphide project,” Estrella Resources managing director Chris Daws said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Our exploration model is continually being refined and vectoring in towards further massive sulphide discoveries remains our immediate focus.
“Our drilling hit rate is increasing with our knowledge and our team should be commended for their efforts.
“We have not lost sight of the fact that T5 is only one area in a much larger magmatic system, and that other trap-sites for nickel-copper sulphides have historically been identified within the Carr Boyd Intrusive Complex.
“We will be pressing on with exploration of all these areas in due course.”
