Pursuit Minerals Limited recently announced it has completed the first hole, BB01-17, of a 2,000m drilling program at the Bluebush Zinc Project in northwest Queensland.
According to the release, the hole was drilled to a downhole depth of 431.9 metres and intersected from 172m until 385m, carrying rocks prospective for SEDEX style zinc mineralization. The objective of the drilling program is to locate a focal point to the large Bluebush zinc system.
“Consequently, we have submitted 213 one metre samples for analysis at the geochemical laboratory in Mt Isa,” said Pursuit’s Managing Director Jeremy Read.
“To intersect such a broad package of prospective rocks is very encouraging and due to the fine-grained nature of the Bluebush zinc mineralisation. It is necessary to submit the entire intersection of prospective rocks for analysis, so we can determine the levels of zinc and lead.”
The Company believes that the completion of its first drill hole on the Bluebush Zinc Project was a major milestone, following its recent readmission to the ASX.
“The geological and geochemical results from this first hole will be used to update our model of the Bluebush zinc system and guide the drill holes to be completed during the remainder of the drilling program,” he added.
A second drill hole, BB02_17, is now in progress.
