West Australian gold and copper explorer Kalamazoo Resources (KZR) has announced the commencement of systematic exploration and development of key prospects at its flagship Snake Well Gold Project, located 450km north of Perth.
Kalamazoo said drilling has commenced at the A-Zone polymetallic prospect which is located at the western end of the Snake Well Gold Project on a granted mining lease M59/474.
“Following the completion of a Heritage Survey, Kalamazoo has commenced the planned drilling program at the A-Zone Gold Project, which is part of an overall works program, to complete development studies at A-Zone,” Kalamazoo told the ASX.
According to the company, the drilling will comprise approximately 2,700 metres of RC drilling and 220 metres of diamond drilling.
“The RC drilling has the dual objectives of infilling coverage within the historically defined gold deposit and confirming previously identified mineralisation widths and grades. Diamond drilling will supply new material for geological, geotechnical and metallurgical assessment,” reads the company’s statement.
“Kalamazoo will take advantage of cost saving synergies by utilising the same RC drill rig for planned programs at the Mixy and Royal Standard gold deposits with an expected start in the next few weeks.”
Results of the drilling campaign are expected to become available during the first quarter of 2017.
