Aircore and reverse circulation drilling is underway across several previously untested potential mafic and ultramafic intrusive targets throughout Westonia.

Kula Gold (ASX:KGD) engaged UTS Geophysics to carry out a recent airborne helicopter VTEM survey, which had an additional 30 line-kilometres completed to infill to 100m line spacing.

The survey defined three conductors at various channels and has generated drill targets coincident with PGE, Nickel, Copper and Gold soil anomalies.

Atlas Geophysics was aappointed to fly a 25m line spacing 25m height drone magnetic survey with further modelling of EM data currently in progress.

This combined aircore and RC drilling is now being completed across a number of previously untested potential mafic and ultramafic ‘eye structure’ intrusive targets and may also test  two possible bedrock conductors from plate modelling generated by the VTEM survey.

‘Pipeline of targets’ for future drilling

“We are excited to have commenced our reconnaissance drilling program on several exciting grass roots prospects at the Westonia,” KGD CEO Ric Dawson says.

“Our team has developed a model to target and now it is time to test it over the coming weeks.

“Being able to start testing this new area will give us a pipeline of targets for future drilling and let us focus on the key intrusive targets in and around the ‘eye structure’.”

Dawson adds the combination of encouraging geochemistry and geophysics ranks these low resistive /high conductive polygons high on Kula Gold’s priority list.

“We expect the drilling to be completed in mid-February and look forward to sharing the outcomes of this work once the assay results are returned.”

If the program is positive, the company plans to get another drill program underway in April.
