Dreadnought Resources Intersects Sulphides in First Texas Hole

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) announced the intersection of sulphides by way of diamond drilling at the Texas target, part of the company’s Tarraji-Yampi project in the West Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources reported drill hole TXDD001 intersected dominantly pyrrhotite with minor pyrite and chalcopyrite from 56.75 to 57.55 metres hosted within the Ruins Dolerite.

The drill hole was positioned to test the shallow southern extent of a modelled EM plate.

Diamond core has been dispatched for sampling with assay results expected in August 2021.

Drilling of TXDD002, located approx. 150m to the northeast of TXDD001, will test the EM plate further down plunge with a planned hole depth of 180m.

It is expected that this hole will be completed in mid-July.

The company is currently preparing for a RC drilling program at Fuso and Paul’s Find copper-gold, Orion nickel-copper-PGE and Chianti-Rufina copper-zinc-silver targets drilling scheduled to commence in early July 2021.

“Confirmation of sulphides within the Ruins Dolerite is an exciting outcome for the first drill hole at Texas and significantly enhances the prospectivity of Texas as well as the recently defined EM plates at Orion,”

“This is a great start to our exploration program in the Kimberley and we look forward to progressing the diamond and RC drilling programs.”

Dreadnought Resources Identifies Regional Illara Targets

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) announced results of a regional soil sampling program undertaken at the company’s Illaara project in Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources has analysed over 11,000 soil samples, generating a range of new gold and base metal targets.

The company has follow up mapping and surface sampling underway with an aim to have targets defined for drill testing in the December quarter of 2021.

New targets include five more advanced anomalies:

CRA Homestead, Spitfire and Defiance gold anomalies;
Nelson base metal anomaly; and
Lawrence’s Corridor swarm of pegmatites with anomalous LCT values.

“Before this regional soil program, only portions of the Metzke’s, Lawrence’ s and Central Illaara areas had been covered with first pass soil sampling,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“This program has successfully identified a number of new gold corridors in different lithostructural settings to the Metzke’s and Lawrence’s Corridors.

“Encouragingly, a new base metal VMS target, Nelson, has been defined with the strongest base metal-in-soil anomaly to date.

“The program also highlighted a strong and coherent lithium-caesium-tantalum anomaly within the Lawrence’s Corridor.”

Dreadnought Resources Scores Big Gold Hit at Longmore’s Find

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) reported drilling results from the company’s Illaara gold-VMS-iron ore project in Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources carried out maiden drilling programs at the mysterious Longmore’s Find and Black Oak deposits.

The drilling is the first ever undertaken at either prospect – Longmore’s Find (13 holes, 1,161m) and Black Oak (7 holes, 711m).

Both prospects confirmed gold mineralisation, including the highest-grade intercept to date within the Illaara Greenstone Belt of:

LMRC005
1 metre at 100 grams per tonne gold from 56m.

“Confirming high-grade mineralisation at Captain Longmore’s Find, nearly 100 years after his prospecting party walked through the area is a watershed moment for Dreadnought,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“This drilling has confirmed the potential for the approximate 10 kilometres-long Metzke’s Corridor to contain multiple high-grade deposits within over a dozen anomalies.

“Furthermore, the Illaara Greenstone Belt has potential to host other multi-deposit camps including Central Illaara and Lawrence’s Corridor.

“Dreadnought looks forward to following up these drill intercepts and commencing target generation and definition work across Illaara.”

Dreadnought Resources Drilling at Matzke’s and Longmore’s Finds

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) has started a 36-hole RC drill program at the company’s Illaara gold-VMS-iron ore project in Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources will commence by drilling 19 holes at Metzke’s Find, where it has previously encountered high-grade gold intercepts.

Once the Metzke’s Find drilling is complete, Dreadnought will move the rig approximately 10 kilometres north to Longmore’s Find and undertake the first drilling program targeting three forgotten historical lodes identified by Captain Longmore in the 1920s.

Longmore’s Find has a Lassiter’s Reef feel to it, having been unearthed by Dreadnought while researching the history of Metzke’s Find in a 1923 newspaper article discussing the results of the No. 3 State Prospecting Party’s discovery six miles north of Metzke’s Find.

Having achieved recent rock chips, up to 18 grams per tonne gold, Dreadnought is excited to accelerate exploration at Longmore’s Find.

“Dreadnought is excited to recommence drilling at Metzke’s Find to follow up on previous significant intercepts,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“As well, we will kick off the first ever drilling at the recently re-discovered Longmore’s Find.

Dreadnought Resources Confirms Copper-Gold Targets

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) declared the confirmation of new targets at the Fuso and Paul’s Find copper-gold targets within the company’s Tarraji-Yampi project in Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources made the confirmation via the results of 3D inversion of detailed magnetic and gravity data surveys recently undertaken at the Fuso and Paul’s Find targets.

The 3D inversion at the Fuso target refined and confirmed an intense south-east dipping magnetic anomaly with a central gravity anomaly associated with demagnetisation that Dreadnought believes to be a geophysical signature typical of Proterozoic copper-gold deposits such as those seen in Tennant Creek and Mt Isa.

At Paul’s Find, the survey spotted an intense, isolated, reversely/remanently magnetised anomaly with a coincident density anomaly.

Inversion modelling suggests the isolated feature is located near surface, measuring approximately 300m by 200m.

“Dreadnought is excited about the results of these surveys which highlight the scale and attractiveness of our targets in an area which seen no exploration since 1978,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“Fuso and Paul’s Find are large and intense coincident magnetic-gravity targets completely undercover with an abundance of copper-gold-bismuth-antimony smoke.”

RC drilling at Fuso will test the contacts of the magnetic and gravity anomalies as well as the centre of the gravity anomaly.

At Paul’s Find, RC drilling will test the coincident magnetic and gravity anomaly.

Dreadnought Resources Extends Rocky Dam Gold

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) recently completed a 10-hole RC drilling program at CRA-North, part of the company’s Rocky Dam gold-VMS project east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

Dreadnought Resources reported the drilling program had extended thick, shallow zones of gold mineralisation at CRA-North, returning drill intercepts including:

RDRC012
20 metres at 1.1 grams per tonne gold from 40m, including 5m at 3.3g/t gold from 52m; and

RDRC009
15m at 0.4g/t gold from 13m, including 4m at 1.3g/t gold from 17m.

The drill program was designed to follow up on previous shallow oxide intercepts and proved to be encouraging with all holes encountering oxide mineralisation, generally associated with ferruginous quartz veining in both felsic schists and sedimentary rocks.

Dreadnought hinted that the orientation of the bed rock lode remains elusive and requires greater structural understanding.

Accordingly, the company will undertake a review of the work completed to date, including relogging and detailed structural mapping in the September 2020 quarter.

“The results from the second drill program at CRA-North are encouraging with all holes mineralised and shallow oxide intercepts extending the strike extent of Rocky Dam,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announceemmnt to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The thick shallow oxide mineralisation, combined with approximately 300 metres of strike and proximity to Kalgoorlie, continues to make CRA-North an attractive target.

“In the short term, we will increase our structural understanding of CRA-North ahead of future drilling planned for the December 2020 quarter.”
