Brightstar has contracted Blue Spec Drilling to carry out the planned 10,000m reverse circulation drill program to expand resources at its Cork Tree Well gold project.

The program is aimed at extending the current mineralised structure to the north along strike while testing potential parallel structures/cross cutting features.

It will also test the new Delta 2 prospect about 2km northeast of the CTW Main Lode that was identified from historical drilling within the newly acquired E38/3434 exploration licence.

Brightstar Resources (ASX:BTR) managing director William Hobba said the company was pleased to bring a well-respected local Kalgoorlie business onto its Cork Tree Well project.

“We expect this program to be highly impactful for the project and the company and welcome the professional capabilities and technical capacity of Blue Spec Drilling to help us realise the incredible value of this prospect,” he added.

Delta 2 drilling

The company plans to drill 12 angled holes down to a depth of 200m around the Delta 2 prospect, where five historical holes returned gold anomalism of up to 2m grading 27.87 grams per tonne (g/t) gold.

This anomaly extends about 500m along strike and could represent a significant addition to the CTW resource of 3.86Mt at 1.9g/t for 237,000oz of contained gold.

Other holes are planned to extend the interpreted Main Lode and Parallel lodes to the north at CTW, including the previously poorly drilled sections of the palaeochannel and the airstrip
