Mineral exploration company Bulletin Resources is set to kick off an 8,000m aircore drilling program at its Lake Rebecca gold project, located 150km east north-east of Kalgoorlie, in Western Australia.
The Lake Rebecca Gold Project comprises five granted exploration licences over a 575km2 area, three of which are wholly owned by Bulletin. The tenements are adjacent to, and along strike of Apollo Consolidated (AOP) 1.1M oz Rebecca Gold Project
Bulleting said the 8,000m land aircore drill program is planned to test the potential for gold mineralisation along strike of a 2.4km long gold trend identified earlier this year, as well as a structurally complex thrust fault zone along a major north-south structure to the east.
“The aircore drilling will test for anomalous gold within regolith or weathered rock above basement rocks,” the company said in a statement.
“This near surface gold anomalism may be indicative of potential gold deposits at depth and a similar near surface gold anomalism above AOP’s Rebecca gold deposit led to the discovery of the Rebecca gold deposit system.
“Gold mineralisation found within the Lake Rebecca area is associated with folds or associated shearing and these structural targets are the focus for Bulletin’s search for a new gold deposit in the region.”
According to the company, over 40 priority targets remain to be tested within the Lake Rebecca Gold Project area.
“Bulletin plans to progressively explore this highly prospective land package with the aim of finding another valuable gold deposit in the area,” it says in the statement.
