Native title heritage clearance paves the way for drill testing at Strickland’s Millrose gold project
Strickland Metals has reached a major milestone for its Millrose project in the Yandal gold belt in WA, securing native title heritage clearance from the Tarlka Matuwa Piarku (Aboriginal Corporation) for the remainder of the main Millrose gold structure.
Plus, the company has nabbed a Program of Work approval from the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.
Both approvals pave the way for expedited drill testing of the full ~13km main Millrose structure.
Strickland Metals (ASX:STK) CEO Andrew Bray said previous clearance allowed for drill testing of approximately 3.2km of the total ~13km structure.
“We’ll now move to expedite drill testing of the remainder of the structure,” he said.
“Most excitingly, clearance allows us to move to areas of highest priority where major regional NE-SW cross-cutting structures intersect the BIF-shear contact.
“These cross-cutting structures appear to be closely related to the higher-grade zones of gold mineralisation that have been intersected to date across the Millrose Mineral Resource.”
Recent drilling results have demonstrated the large potential scale of the Millrose system, particularly in light of the fact that Strickland has only drilled approximately one quarter of the mineralised shear structure to date, Bray says.
A third drill rig has now arrived on site, which means the company can move at pace to continue exploration along strike.
All rigs will remain on site until at least the end of 2022.
