THE DRILL SERGEANT: Heron Resources (ASX: HRR) reported results of an IP geophysical survey at the company’s wholly-owned Woodlawn zinc-copper project in New South Wales.
Heron Resources explained the program consisted of a modern IP survey within the company’s granted mining lease, covering an area of 4 kilometres by 2.4km directly north of the Woodlawn Mine.
The survey delineated a number of IP anomalies, with two key targets taking prominence: a coincident chargeability and conductivity anomaly at the Murphy’s prospect; and a large chargeability anomaly at the Bucklands North prospect.
Both anomalies lie on Heron’s granted mining lease and within 2.5km of the Woodlawn plant site, currently being commissioned.
“Our exploration team is focusing on the area around the Woodlawn Mine with the specific aim of discovering a new Woodlawn-style deposit,” Heron Resources managing director and CEO Wayne Taylor said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“Modern geophysical techniques are ideally suited for this style of mineralisation and this IP survey has generated some of the most exciting responses since the discovery of the Kate Lens electro-magnetic anomaly.
“We look forward to mobilising a drilling rig in the coming weeks to drill test these anomalies.”
