Western Australian gold explorer BMG Resources (ASX: BMG) has provided an update on exploration activities at the company’s 100% owned Abercromby gold project in the north-eastern goldfields of WA. The next phase of diamond drilling has commenced, and the follow-up program of regional aircore drilling is complete.
The diamond drilling program at the greater Capital prospect area comprises 8 holes for ~3,700m, and is aimed at resource definition and extension of the high-grade gold lodes identified to date.
57 regional aircore holes for 5,428m across three large gold anomalies have now been completed. The anomalies were identified by recent sub-audio magnetics and aircore drilling completed earlier this year in the southern portion of BMG’s Abercromby tenure. Two more aircore holes are planned for early July.
Both programs build upon the successful drilling campaigns completed at Abercromby earlier this year which more than doubled the size of the resource envelope – refer ASX results announcements on 26 April 2022 “Assays Confirm Significant Extensions of High-Grade Gold at Abercromby Project” and 2 May 2022 “Aircore Highlights Significant Regional Gold Potential at Abercromby”.
BMG Managing Director Bruce McCracken said, “It’s fantastic to have a diamond rig back on site at Abercromby to build on the success of our drilling campaigns completed just a few months ago.
“We’ve also made great progress over the past month with the follow-up air-core drilling of the large regional gold anomalies identified to the south of Capital, which has now wrapped-up.
“These programs will continue to delineate the significant high-grade orebody at Capital as we progress towards maiden resource definition and test gold anomalies to the south identified by recent SAM and aircore drilling.
“These are exciting times for the Company, and we look forward to updating investors as our drilling progress continues and results come to hand.”
