Breaker Resources NL (ASX: BRB) has reported further strong drilling results from three areas outside the 1Moz open pit Resource at the Bombora prospect within the Lake Roe Project, 100km east of Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
The drilling is part of a major programme underway to grow the Resource, expand an extensively de- risked open pit mining option and realise the full potential of a 30km gold system outlined by regional aircore drilling.
Breaker Executive Chairman Tom Sanders said the new results continued to demonstrate the growth potential at Lake Roe, where a pattern of drilling and consistent discovery has been established each quarter over five years. This bears all the hallmarks of new gold camp.
We are now starting to close the drill spacing at Bombora and Kopai-Crescent in preparation for resource delineation drilling. It is too early to put a timing on the next resource update as we are still firming up the geometry and extent of the gold mineralisation in several areas,” he said.
At Bombora two diamond holes below the northern part of the open pit Resource returned multiple intersections, including:
- 14.6m @ 1.35g/t Au including 4m @ 3.74g/t from 336m;
- 8.8m @ 1.36g/t Au including 3.8m @ 2.39g/t from 366m; 6.15m @ 2.00g/t Au including 2m @ 5.08g/t from 418.9m; and 5.7m @ 1.99g/t Au from 527.9m (first half of drill hole only)
- 10.75m @ 1.02g/t Au including 2m @ 2.47g/t from 455.25m; 2.65m @ 2.17g/t Au including 0.65m @ 7.89g/t from 509m; and
- 16.0m @ 1.75g/t Au including 1.8m @ 8.46g/t from 611m
Mr Sanders said the company is planning to expand its manning to facilitate a scaling up of activities to test several recently identified targets without affecting any planned resource drilling.
These targets include the 12km-long Carbineer Prospect along the margin of the Swan Lake Syenite, the west branch of the Claypan Shear Zone extending south of the recent Kopai-Crescent drilling, and the 30km-long gold potential indicated by aircore drilling that extends well outside the nine km extent of gold mineralisation outlined by RC and diamond drilling to date
