Breaker Resources NL (ASX: BRB) reports that the discovery of a large new gold anomaly highlights the exploration upside at its Lake Roe Gold Project east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Aircore (AC) drilling has outlined the anomaly at the Claypan Prospect, situated 1.3km south east of the Bombora gold deposit over a length of 2.5km and a width of up to 500m.
Breaker’s Executive Chairman Tom Sanders said it is partially coincident with a newly identified, Bombora Sill-like quartz dolerite, while the scale and tenor of the gold anomalism is comparable with that associated with the Bombora and Crescent primary discoveries.
Breaker’s is current regional aircore drilling campaign at Lake Roe is aiming to identify new areas of gold mineralisation near the 1.0Moz Bombora gold deposit, which remains open in all directions after 226,000m of RC and diamond drilling.
To date the company has received results related to the first 249 holes (13,322m) of this programme, targeting the Claypan, Claypan Shear Zone South and Woodline Camp Prospects located in the central and southern parts of Lake Roe.
Aircore drilling at the Claypan Prospect was designed to test the extent and tenor of anomalous gold identified by early reconnaissance drilling in the vicinity of the Claypan Shear Zone.
The drilling returned numerous significant results based on 4m composite sampling, including: 4m @ 1.36g/t Au from 40m; 4m @ 0.95g/t Au from 48m; 12m @ 1.32g/t Au from 48m, including 4m @ 2.75g/t from 48m; 6m @ 0.54g/t Au from 76m, including 2m @ 1.16g/t from 80m to EOH; 15m @ 0.31g/t Au from 80m to EOH; 3m @ 2.66g/t Au from 72m to EOH; and 19m @ 0.32g/t Au from 68m to EOH.
Mr Sanders said the results extend the overall strike length of the camp-scale Lake Roe oxide gold anomaly, including Bombora and Crescent to at least 8.5km.
