Toedter West Air-core Drilling
Air-core drilling of the Toedter West and Wahoo East prospect areas was completed in late July 2018 and assay results have now been received.
Toedter West is a series of small coincident magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical targets over a strike length of 6km. These targets were interpreted by the Company to be possible sulphide-bearing banded iron formations (BIFs) prospective for gold mineralisation. A single reverse circulation (RC) hole (GWRC482) drilled at Toedter West by the Company in 2017 intersected 1m @ 20.6g/t Au from 133m. At the eastern end of the target is the Toedter prospect, which has an existing Mineral Resource of 34,200oz.
A total of 87 holes for 2,775 drill metres was completed at Toedter West in the current program. Four-metre composite samples were submitted for analysis by fire assay using 30g charge. Best assay results from the Toedter West program include:
- 3.0m @ 0.71g/t Au from 76m in GPAC1353.
Drill hole traverse locations are shown in Figure 7.
Whilst the initial results have not met the Company’s expectations, it should be noted that only a limited extent of the 6km strike length of the target have been tested. A further refinement of the targeting criteria is now recommended.
