THE DRILL SERGEANT: Metalicity (ASX: MCT) has kicked off drilling at the company’s Kookynie gold project, south of the Western Australia Goldfields town of Leonora.
Metalicity is to carry out a program of reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling (DD) at Kookynie to confirm and extend zones of known mineralisation.
The program is to consist of approximately six holes in total (four planned into the DCC Trend, one planned into the McTavish prospect, and a final hole into the Champion prospect) for approximately 600 metres of RC and 600 metres of DD.
Metalicity recently completed mapping of the targeted area that it said supports the company’s interpretation of the controls of mineralisation.
The drilling on the DCC Trend is designed to also test mineralised cross cutting (east-west) structures that control the main north-south mineralised trends that host the Diamantina, Cosmopolitan and Cumberland historical workings.
The Company expects initial results from this drilling program to be available during July.
“We are very pleased to be undertaking the initial drilling program at Kookynie,” Metalicity CEO Mat Longworth said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“We look forward to the results which will determine the direction of future drill programs to advance the understanding and confidence in the potential mineral resources.”
