Zenith Minerals (ASX: ZNC) has commenced drilling at it’s 100% owned Split Rocks gold-lithium project in Western Australia.
Drilling commenced to test a series of high-order gold targets at Zenith’s 100% owned Split Rocks project in Western Australia.
The Split Rocks drill campaign is one of two that Zenith will be undertaking at its 100% owned gold projects in July, the other being a major follow up drill campaign at Zenith’s Red Mountain gold project in Queensland where recent drilling returned 14m @ 5.5 g/t Au incl 6m @ 12.3 g/t Au from surface.
The +3000m aircore program at Split Rocks is anticipated to take approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete with assays likely a few weeks later.
As foreshadowed in Zenith’s ASX Release dated 14th February 2020, drilling will test a series of high-order gold targets extending over 18km of strike throughout the project area. These targets include several large, high-order geochemical anomalies that have never been or were poorly drill tested. The anomalies are in several cases coincident with major fault structures and geological contacts that contain significant gold deposits along strike.
The +3000m aircore program at Split Rocks will now test an initial 6 of the 12 drill targets outlined in Zenith’s recently completed review. The program is anticipated to take approximately 2 – 3 weeks to complete with assays likely a few weeks thereafter.
CEO COMMENTS CEO Mick Clifford said “These targets are the culmination of months of painstaking data compilation and interrogation and we are excited to now be in a position to commence their drill testing.
“This is an exciting period for Zenith shareholders as we are planning major drill campaigns on two 100% owned gold projects, Split Rocks and Red Mountain this month, along with field based activities at our Flanagan’s gold and Develin Creek copper-zinc projects that will likely add significantly to our upcoming news flow.”
