Great Boulder Resources Commences Side Well Regional AC Drilling

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Great Boulder Resources (ASX: GBR) has commenced a 60-hole air-core (AC) drilling program at the company’s Side Well gold project in Western Australia.

Following the company’s recently results from its Mulga Bill project, the AC drilling program is to test four regional targets within the Side Well project area.

This will include the first holes along strike from Doray Minerals’ historical intersection of

3 metres at 35.5 grams per tonne gold from 76m.

This was drilled in a reconnaissance AC program completed in 2011.

Great Boulder will also test other targets, including areas it highlighted during examination of the VTEM conductivity data, as well as two areas of pathfinder anomalism from soil sampling completed east of Mulga Bill during 2020.

The program is expected to take approximately three weeks.

“Having completed AC drilling on a number of Whiteheads targets last week we’re now back on the ground at Side Well,” Great Boulder Resources managing director Andrew Paterson said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“This is our fourth drilling program since the end of March.

“We are very keen to look at the geology at Matilda and see if we can extend mineralisation in the high-grade zone, as well as three other high priority untested targets in the region.

“The company also eagerly awaits the remaining results from the Mulga Bill RC program and the soil samples at Jones Well as we look to build a pipeline of prospects within the Side Well project.”

The remaining results in question include the current backlog of assays from Side Well, being 26 of the 29 RC holes drilled at Mulga Bill during April.

Two of the first three holes assayed intersected meaningful gold mineralisation, including:

6m at 31.2g/t hold from 130m.

These results are expected to be available in the next three to four weeks.
