THE DRILL SERGEANT: Twenty Seven Co (ASX: TSC) has commenced a follow up RC drilling campaign at the company’s Rover project in Western Australia.
TSC outlined the objective of this second RC drilling campaign as to build on the inaugural program, which encountered encouraging intercepts resulting in the Creasy 1 gold discovery and VMS signature at the Harmonic prospect.
“RC drilling is now underway, with our primary goal to expand the shallow high-grade gold discovery at Creasy 1 and test the VMS potential at the Harmonic prospect,” Twenty Seven Co CEO Ian Warland said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“At the same time the team is focusing on results from the successful AEM survey to get these conductors drill ready, expanding our pipeline of high-quality targets at Rover.”
The AEM survey results Warland refers to identified 13 conductors along 20 kilometres prospective gold strike that is part of the Maynard Hills greenstone belt.
TSC said this emphasises and enhances the prospectivity of the Rover project.
Two conductors were identified at Creasy 2 where RC drilling recently confirmed strong potential for VMS style mineralisation at depth and/or along strike with one intercept hitting a thick zone of highly anomalous zinc.
“Without question, identifying 13 conductors along the Maynard Hills greenstone belt from the AEM survey exceeded expectations,” Warland said.
“This is an exciting development for TSC and delivers a significant pipeline of highly prospective gold and VMS targets.
“As the geology team is at site for the start of the upcoming RC drilling campaign, we have taken the opportunity to reconcile the AEM results with field observations to formulate which targets are to be prioritised for drill testing.
“We look forward to reporting further developments as they materialise.”
