THE DRILL SEREGANT: Estrella Resources (ASX: ESR) is back out drilling at the company’s Carr Boyd Rocks (CBLC) nickel-copper project in Western Australia.
Estrella Resources is drilling to test the T5 discovery on the project further at depth and along strike.
The company outlined its timetable to include commencement at diamond core hole CBDD042 located approximately 150m south of discovery hole CBDD030 and 130m underneath CBDD041, which was its final drill hole of 2020 that intersected the interpreted ‘mineralised conduit confirming the T5 discovery over potential strike length of at least 450m.
The company considers the deeper diamond drilling of T5 essential from both a geophysical and geological perspective having a large relative mid-high conductivity EM response plunging away from initial discovery RC and diamond holes.
“Last year’s diamond drilling campaign at Carr Boyd was an outstanding success,” Estrella Resources CEO Chris Daws said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“We have discovered what is now clearly looking very much like a ‘feeder’ to the CBLC and the hunt is now well and truly on in 2021 to uncover the massive nickel and copper sulphide source I have always believed existed at Carr Boyd.
“The strongly mineralised conduit has been intersected in multiple diamond drill holes at T5 and providing our team with a clear geological model.
“With every hole that we drill we are one step closer to delivering a successful outcome for our shareholders and I am certainly looking forward to each and every meter of drill core that is placed on the core-farm racks.”
