Assays at the Blue Bell South and Python tenements, which form part of the Tropicana North project, have identified strike extensions to gold mineralisation over 500m and 1.2km.

The Blue Bell South tenement is situated on the southern extent of the Yamarna greenstone belt in Western Australia, about 90km south of the Gruyere gold mine with the Yamarna Shear Zone running through the western edge of the tenement.

Numerous historically defined gold prospects are within and nearby the tenement, including Tallows, Three Bears, and Bluebell.

Carawine’s (ASX:CWX) drilling, part of a 104-hole aircore drilling program, was completed at the Tallows North and Liberty target areas within the tenement.

At Tallows North a 1m at 0.43 g/t gold from 64m hit was returned, defining mineralisation over 600m of strike while at Area 1, 4m at 0.21 g/t gold from 32m extended the strike of targeted mineralisation from a historic interval of 4m @ 0.61g/t Au to more than 1.5km in wide-spaced drilling.

Keeping busy with drilling

CWX managing director David Boyd says the company will look to target these trends with deeper and closer-spaced drilling in due course, with follow-up drilling to be prioritised alongside other planned programs across the Tropicana North Gold Project.

“Our next drilling program is expected to commence mid-July 2023 at the Big Bang tenement in the Fraser Range, targeting three bedrock conductors for potential nickel-sulphide mineralisation.

“The focus will then move back to Tropicana North with drilling planned for Hercules, Big Freeze and additional gold targets.”
