Brightstar Resources has completed three RC drilling programs at Cork Tree Well, Delta 2 and Alpha prospects in WA in the Laverton Gold Belt.

Drilling at Cork Tree was designed to investigate extensions of mineralisation to north of current mineralised footprint and at Delta 2 was targeting historic anomalous AC drilling over a +500m strike length.

At the Alpha project, 12 shallow RC holes were drilled to assess open pit opportunities where historic drilling had shown indications of near surface mineralisation that may support a small open pit in this area 800m northwest of the current pit.

The company says this could provide a second access to deeper mineralisation should it be confirmed as an opportunity for underground mining in the future.

Progressing early-stage exploration

Brightstar Resources (ASX:BTR) also completed an aircore program south of the Queen of Hearts prospect at Brightstar South which was aimed at generating anomalies for future drill testing.

“Blue Spec Drilling has delivered exceptional sample integrity throughout the program at a consistently high penetration rate,” MD Bill Hobba said.

“The CTW and Delta 2 programs were successfully completed, and an additional 12 holes were able to be drilled at Alpha West to test for opportunities to mine a shallow open pit where previous anomalous drilling has been recorded.

“The aircore will continue to progress our early-stage exploration development in the southern part of the Brightstar Resources tenure.

“We look forward to sharing the results from these programs as they become available.”

Once assay results are received they will then feed into a revised model for Cork Tree Well and delineate further drilling targets for follow up exploration at the other prospects.
