THE DRILL SERGEANT: Todd River Resources (ASX: TRT) received assay results from an ongoing drilling program at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Mt Hardy copper-zinc project in the Northern Territory.
Todd River Resources has planned approximately 5,000 metres of Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling as part of its current phase of exploration, targeting strike extensions and in-fill at the Hendrix high-grade copper-zinc discovery and other high priority targets at Mt Hardy.
The drilling intersected high-grade core within a thick zone of base metal sulphides in the central zone at Hendrix, returning:
3.04 metres at 18 per cent zinc, 3 per cent copper, 6.2 per cent lead, 148 grams per tonne silver from 519.16m down-hole within a broader zone of 22.2m at 31g/t silver, 0.7 per cent copper, 1.1 per cent lead and 3.7 per cent zinc from 509m.
“Drilling continues to deliver some very encouraging results from the central zone at Hendrix and we continue to expand the mineralisation there,” Todd River Resources managing director Will Dix said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“In addition, we are progressing exploration at other prospects within the Mt Hardy project and we are excited about what some of the initial reviews of previous drilling is turning up, especially at the Lennox and Browns prospects where we will be drilling later this month.”
