Caravel’s thick copper hits have highlighted good continuity of mineralisation along strike and down dip at the Bindi West Limb position within its namesake project.

The shallow reverse circulation drilling results have also confirmed the tenor of mineralisation within the Bindi West starter pit.

Meanwhile, diamond hole 21CADD020 at the southern end of the Dasher pit intersected a thinner mineralised zone than usual though a thinner mineralised zone intersected in the granites of the footwall may represent the start of another mineralised window there.

Caravel Minerals (ASX:CVV) is currently waiting on assays from RC drilling at Bindi West, aircore drilling completed northeast, south and west of the Bindi deposit as well as diamond core holes drilled into the Bindi deposit itself to recover material for metallurgical test work.

Drill results

The infill RC results – 22CARC015-016 and 22CARC023-025 – continue to show good continuity of copper mineralisation within the Bindi West Limb position with consistent grades along strike and across the mineralised zones.

Caravel noted that holes within the starter pit from the 2021 scoping study demonstrated broad zones of higher-grade mineralisation such as the 34m at 0.46% copper intersection from a downhole depth of 68m at 22CARC023, which intersected two other copper intersections.

Holes 22CARC024-025 completed on a new section 100m north of the 2021 scoping study pit also returned broad intervals of good mineralisation.

Meanwhile, exploration RC drilling (22CARC017-021) along the southwest strike of the Bindi West Limb intersected diminishing tenor of mineralisation further to the south.

The company said the West Limb is interpreted to be truncated by the northwest trending hangingwall fault which is sub parallel to the mineralised limb.

It added that larger volumes of groundwater combined with the near surface saprolitic clay southwest of West Limb created challenging drilling conditions.
