Azure Minerals has kicked off exploration at the Barton gold project in WA, with 3,000m of RC drilling targeting extensions of Genesis Minerals’ (ASX:GMD) new Puzzle North gold discovery.
The target is gold mineralisation at Daisy Corner – immediately adjacent to Puzzle North – where previous exploration intersected anomalous gold mineralisation of 7m at 1.26g/t gold from 42m (YAB13).
Barton borders several growing gold deposits and significant gold projects, including Genesis’ Ulysses Gold Project (1,608,000oz gold resource); and Saturn Metals Ltd (ASX:STN): Apollo Hill Gold Project (944,000oz gold resource).
The first holes in Azure Minerals’ (ASX:AZS) initial program will be collared immediately to the north of the Azure-Genesis tenement boundary.
The company also plans to complete an aircore drilling program to follow up untested, soil- covered structurally-controlled gold targets.
Azure has also restarted diamond drilling on its flagship Andover nickel-copper project (60% Azure/40% Creasy Group).
To date, two separate zones of massive, semi-massive and matrix nickel-copper sulphides have been identified at VC-07 West, where drilling is planned to define these mineralised zones and potentially move into a mineral resource drill-out phase.
The company also plans to complete additional drilling at several bedrock-hosted EM conductors – which represent high-priority drill targets.
