THE DRILL SERGEANT: Hammer Metals (ASX: HMX) recently commenced an aircore drilling program at the company’s Bronzewing South gold project located in the Yandal Belt of Western Australia.
Hammer Metals is conducting the 15,000 metres aircore program to test multiple targets along-strike from the 1.07 million-ounce Orelia deposit held by Echo Resources (ASX: EAR).
The drilling will test four targets within the prospective mineralised trends that extend for a distance of 14 kilometres along strike to the north of Orelia.
The Resources Roadhouse spoke with Hammer Metals managng director at the recent 2019 Brisbane Resources Round-up.
Hammer noted that previous historic RAB and its own aircore drilling on the structure north of the Orelia deposit averaged 30m in depth and outlined numerous bottom-of-hole gold anomalies that will be followed-up.
“This is the second Hammer program to be undertaken on the Bronzewing south project,” Hammer Metals chairman Russell Davis said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The Orelia trend has multiple zones of gold anomalism which warrant further definition before follow-up with RC drilling.
“The Hammer program will commence to test four of these zones.
“It is anticipated that results will be progressively announced from late October onwards.”
