Cazaly tunes up for copper drilling at Halls Creek
Link copied to
Cazaly is laying the groundwork for the planned reverse circulation drill program at its Halls Creek copper-zinc-silver project that is now expected to start in the middle of June.
Earthworks for the program have been completed and a drill contractor secured, following completion of the heritage survey back in late April.
Cazaly Resources (ASX:CAZ) managing director Tara French thanked the Jaru Traditional Owners and the Kimberley Land Council for their support for the heritage survey during logistically challenging times.
“Cazaly can now proceed with their intended RC drilling programmes as planned,” French adds. “The company is pleased to have secured a drilling contractor to conduct the RC drilling program, which is now scheduled to commence mid-June notwithstanding any further delays.”
Priorities for the RC drill program are the Bommie prospect and Moses Rock target. Bommie is located 2.5km southwest of Mount Angelo North and is interpreted to be a large, low grade copper system.
It features an extensive surface geochemical signature which provides further encouragement for a large mineralised system.
About 2,000m of RC drilling will be carried out to test the continuity of broad copper intercepts across the Bommie while a number of deeper holes will test the system at depth.
Moses Rock is 5km southwest of Mount Angelo North. While electromagnetic conductor plates have been modelled at both prospects, Moses Rock is the larger and higher priority of the two.
The EM conductor at Moses Rock is located within the Koongie Park Formation, the same rock units that host the Mount Angelo North copper-zinc-silver deposit.
Koongie Park is highly prospective for volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS) mineralisation and provides further encouragement that the EM conductor could represent a massive sulphide target.
Meanwhile, Cazaly says infill sampling is underway at the Yabby project about 10km west of Laverton in Western Australia’s northeastern Goldfields to refine surface geochemical anomalies for future drill testing.
And modelling is being carried out on the airborne EM survey at the Kamwe prospect of its Kaoko project in Namibia while geochemical stream sediment sampling at the Ashburton project in the Pilbara has been delayed due to heavy rain.
