Kalamazoo Resources Limited (ASX: KZR) has discovered new gold nugget occurrences within its recently granted tenement E45/5146 at its DOM’s Hill Gold Project in Western Australia’s Pilbara Region.
The company has now completed an initial supervised metal detecting programme and field investigation within tenements E45/5146, which were granted in mid-October, and E45/4722.
Follow up soil and rock chip sampling were also completed within E45/4724 at the Marble Bar Gold Project, located to the south east of DOM’s Hill, after encouraging gold in soil samples were identified in a recent programme.
“We are greatly encouraged by this immediate result within the new tenement E45/5146 at the DOM’s Hill Gold Project and the continued discovery of nuggets within E45/4722, which supports the potential for epigenetic gold mineralisation,” Kalamazoo Chairman and CEO, Luke Reinehr, said.
“Kalamazoo has been exploring in the Pilbara since its inception and the continued gold discoveries/developments by groups such as Calidus at Klondyke near Marble Bar have highlighted the broad-scale prospectivity of the Eastern Pilbara.
“This provides further confidence that our continued gold exploration in the area has excellent potential for discovery,” he said.
The DOM’s Hill Gold Project now consists of three granted exploration licences and one exploration licence application, located 110 km south east of Port Hedland, within the Archaean East Pilbara Region.
The tenements cover the major domain bounding Gorge Range, Muccan South and Bamboo Creek Shear Zones as well as numerous second-order shear zones including DOM’s Hill Shear Zone and the North East Fault. The project area is considered prospective for a range of gold, nickel, cobalt and base metal deposits.
Recently granted exploration licence E45/5146 covers the extension of the greenstone sequence to the north of the adjoining E45/4887. A reconnaissance field investigation including metal detecting activity was undertaken within E45/5146 and E45/4722 by a consulting geologist to Kalamazoo, accompanied by an experienced prospector.
Meanwhie, in Victoria, a 10,000m diamond drilling programme at Kalamazoo’s major project in Castlemaine is progressing with the first hole to 485m complete and the second drill hole almost finalised to a similar depth.
“We are expecting to complete four drill holes there before a short Christmas break, with first assays results hopefully received by then, though drilling progress and assay laboratory availability will determine that schedule,” Mr Reinehr said.
