  • Early stage RC and diamond drilling at Monsoon returned very strong gold results supporting delineation of a 5 kilometre mineralized trend between Monsoon and Baloo. Significant intersections include:
    • KPBR0104: 21.1 g/t over 3 metres including 54.9 g/t over 1.0 metre located 1 kilometre south along strike from previously announced aircore result of 1.35 g/t over 50 metres.
    • KPBD0364: 9.0 g/t over 0.75 metres
  • Two new major shear zones, approximately 20km in length, with potential for primary gold mineralization identified at Lake Cowan
    • Two new shear zones run parallel to the major Zuleika and Boulder Lefroy regional Shear Zones which are host to major gold deposits including Golden Mile (+60M oz) and Kundana mining centre (+5M oz)
  • The Lake Cowan scout (lake aircore) drilling confirmed and built upon previously reported anomalies (+0.02g/t gold) while continuing to deliver new drill targets.
    • Whole rock geochemistry work completed on aircore drilling has resulted in both support of existing deposits and possible bedrock extensions.

TORONTO, Sept. 14, 2021 – Karora Resources Inc. (TSX: KRR) (“Karora” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce new exploration drilling results from Lake Cowan at its Higginsville Greater project area focused primarily on the highly prospective Sleuth Trend between the area north of Baloo open pit mine, Monsoon and south of the Nanook prospect.

Early scout drilling successes along the Sleuth Trend reported in February 2021 (including 1.35g/t over 50 metres – see news release dated February 8, 2021) warranted additional aircore drilling and geochemistry work, supported by initial targeted bedrock RC and diamond drilling. Encouraging RC and diamond results have been received from the Monsoon project, highlighted by an intercept of 21.1 g/t over 3 metres (from 62 metres), including 54.9 g/t over 1.0 metre in hole KPBR0104 and 9.0 g/t over 0.75 metres (from 130 metres) in hole KPBD0364.The strong results have been backed-up by Stage 2 aircore drilling along 5 kilometres of the Sleuth Trend between Baloo and Monsoon.

Stage 2 aircore drilling work completed by Karora across Lake Cowan has also identified two new approximately 20 kilometre long prospective shear zones which run parallel to the major Zuleika and Boulder Lefroy regional Shear Zones, associated with major deposits such as the Golden Mile (+60 M oz) in Kalgoorlie and Kundana (+5M oz).

Paul Huet, Chairman and CEO of Karora said, “New exploration drill results received from the Lake Cowan area continue to demonstrate why we are excited about the potential of this very large and underexplored area which was previously handcuffed by a very onerous royalty structure. 

Geochemical analysis work completed on the Stage 2 aircore drillholes has reinforced the presence of mineralization along 5 kilometres of the Sleuth Trend between our Baloo open pit mine and the Monsoon project, where historical intersections include 11.4 g/t over 66 metres and 6.4 g/t over 38 metres (S2 Resources news release dated July 21, 20161). Furthermore, initial RC and diamond drilling along the trend has returned strong first pass results of 21.1 g/t over 3 metres (from 62 metres), including 54.9 g/t over 1.0 metre in hole KPBR0104 and 9.0 g/t over 0.75 metres (from 130 metres) in hole KPBD0364.

I am also very pleased to announce that our wide spaced Stage 2 aircore drill program has identified gold mineralized trends with potential for two new shear zones across the Lake Cowan area approximately 20 kilometres in length. These two shears run sub-parallel to the Zuleika and Boulder Lefroy regional shear zones which have hosted many major deposits in the Kalgoorlie region. I am looking forward to furthering early stage work on these two new exciting prospect areas. Assisting us with our large regional exploration program is CSA Global, who are scheduled to deliver the results of their Sleuth Trend study, commissioned in July 2021, by the end of the third quarter.

Overall, we are pleased with the outcome of the broader regional work completed at Higginsville to date during 2021, which has been successful in its goal of identifying new targets across a very large, underexplored area. Given the potential of the region, we are excited to continue to assess these new areas.”

Lake Cowan Exploration – Sleuth Trend

The Sleuth trend target area extends over 25 kilometres and includes the Baloo open pit mine and the Monsoon and Nanook prospects. (see Figure 1). The 5 kilometre segment between Baloo and Monsoon has now been aircore drill tested with low-level gold assay results supportive of the mineralized trend while initial RC and diamond drilling has indicated high grade mineralization is associated with a basalt/shale contact. A total of 17,829 metres over 414 aircore holes have been drilled over the Lake Cowan Project area in 2021 which includes the targeted Sleuth Trend.

In addition to the aircore drilling, Karora designed an initial drill program of four lake-RC and three lake-diamond holes totalling 1,355 metres to test below a strong regolith anomaly located 1 kilometre northwest of the main Monsoon prospect (and along the Sleuth Trend). The drilling was highlighted by drillhole KPBR0104 which intersected strong secondary mineralization in the regolith above the basalt/shale contact (21.2g/t over 3 metres1) and drillhole KPBD0364 which intersected primary mineralization, returning 9.0 g/t over 0.75 metres1 associated with quartz-carbonate veining and pyrite hosted by foliated basalt (see Figure 3).

CSA Global Sleuth Trend Study Nearing Completion

CSA Global is in the final stages of completing a 3D geological and mineralization framework model over the mineralized Sleuth Trend which includes the Baloo deposit, Monsoon and Nanook gold prospects. Work delivered to date by CSA Global incorporates whole rock geochemistry (bottom of hole) on all historic aircore drill holes, including principal component analysis as displayed in Figure 2. The results of the PC analysis support known deposits (Baloo) and indicates possible open extensions beyond known bedrock mineralization.

Two New Shear Zones identified

Stepping outside of the Sleuth Trend, the wide-spaced aircore program returned anomalous low-level gold geochem results that, in combination with historical results and reinterpretation of regional geophysical datasets (Resource Potentials1, 2021), support the existence of two new, potentially mineralized northwest trending shear zones plus subsidiary north-south structures (see Figure 3). The interpreted northwest structures parallel the regionally prospective Boulder Lefroy Shear and Zuleika Shear zone and are yet to be tested at depth in bedrock. Based on current understanding, these new shear zones are an estimated 20 kilometres in length.

Cautionary Statement Regarding the Higginsville Mining Operations
A production decision at the Higginsville gold operations was made by previous operators of the mine, prior to the completion of the acquisition of the Higginsville gold operations by Karora and Karora made a decision to continue production subsequent to the acquisition. This decision by Karora to continue production and, to the knowledge of Karora, the prior production decision were not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves, demonstrating economic and technical viability, and, as a result, there may be an increased uncertainty of achieving any particular level of recovery of minerals or the cost of such recovery, which include increased risks associated with developing a commercially mineable deposit. Historically, such projects have a much higher risk of economic and technical failure. There is no guarantee that anticipated production costs will be achieved. Failure to achieve the anticipated production costs would have a material adverse impact on the Corporation’s cash flow and future profitability. Readers are cautioned that there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with such production decisions.

Lefroy finds 6 anomalies at Burns, will kick off RC drilling next month

Gold explorer Lefroy has identified six new magnetic anomalies, extending the Burns intrusive corridor to 3000m at its Lefroy gold project near Kalgoorlie.

Burns has a distinctive, positive, aerial magnetic signature due to strong magnetite alteration of the porphyry and basalt rocks that host the mineralisation.

An aeromagnetic survey over the prospect identified the new anomalies, which have defined a corridor of dioritic intrusions – each of which are considered prospective for mineralisation.

Notably, the northwest trending corridor is over 3000m long and is coincident with a +200 parts per million drill hole copper anomaly based on resampling of wide spaced historical geochemical holes.

Lefroy Exploration (ASX:LEX) is focusing on the largest and northernmost magnetic anomaly – Lovejoy – which lies beneath Lake Randall and is adjacent to the strongest drill hole copper anomaly.

Multiple anomalies support a major structure at Burns

While the company has yet to establish the association between Burns and the diorite porphyry intrusions, it believes there’s a genetic relationship between them.

Lefroy also considers the copper and gold mineralisation hosted by both the diorite porphyry, basalt, and massive magnetite veins to be a new style of gold-copper-silver mineralisation in the area.

“The images from the new magnetic data further support our interpretation that the Burns prospect is one of a number of magnetic anomalies each centred on diorite porphyries considered prospective for gold-copper-silver mineralisation,” Lefroy managing director Wade Johnson said.

“These form a corridor of intrusives, likely along a major structure that potentially extends further to the northwest out to Neon.”

Lovejoy the priority target

The company says the magnetic anomalies provide strong rationale for an exploration program.

Planning is underway for an RC drilling program to begin in October, with drilling at Lake Randall – initially at the Lovejoy site – planned for November.

“We are very keen to commence RC drill testing of these magnetic anomalies, firstly on land then out on to Lake Randall, with Lovejoy the priority,” Johnson said.

“We have plenty of scope to demonstrate that what we have already discovered at Burns is part of a much larger mineral system, outboard of the larger Burns Intrusion that is also yet to be evaluated.”

REZ’s nickel hunt continues at East Menzies with more historic finds

REZ’s East Menzies gold project is continuing to reveal its nickel prospectivity, with further research of old reports unearthing more significant intervals of nickel mineralisation from as close to just 1m from surface. 

Resources & Energy Group’s (ASX:REZ) ongoing nickel investigations at the Springfield and Cepline prospects, part of East Menzies project in WA, have uncovered peak assays from historic drilling of 12m at 1.22% nickel from 2m, 9m at 1.08% nickel from 1m and 7m at 1.46% nickel from 16m.

These intercepts, which were the result of aircore drilling by Pronto Resources in 2008 and rotary air blast drilling by Great Australian Resources (GAR) in 2004, also contained cobalt and zinc mineralisation.

It reads like an Indiana Jones or National Treasure script, REZ was drilling for gold at the Springfield prospect when it hit nickel.

The Richard Poole-led company then discovered some old CRA (now Rio Tinto) and BHP reports which showed the two mining heavyweights had found nickel as far back as the late 60s but weren’t interested in it because they only wanted gold.

Over five decades later, nickel is all the rage thanks to the energy transition and the base metal’s importance in batteries.

“Significantly, the bottom of hole assays for the GAR drillholes terminated in bedrock zones with high nickel content.” – Executive Director Richard Poole  

These results included 15m at 0.13% nickel and 14m at 0.06% nickel, both from 82m depth.

“This further research by REZ has identified additional mineral exploration results at the

Cepline prospect which support the initial findings of nickel mineralisation by BHP in 1986.” – Executive Director Richard Poole   

Nickel holy grail

Now, Richard Poole says these additional results support the view that the ultramafic rocks along the Springfield side of the East Menzies project are prospective for nickel sulphides.

Nickel resources are usually divided between laterite or sulphide deposits.

Sulphides are the holy grail for explorers because they are easier and cheaper to process. This is also what makes nickel sulphides the preferred choice of electric vehicle battery makers.

BHP back in 1986 reported significantly high values of nickel, with a peak grade of 2.9%, and as close to surface as just 6m.

This was at the Cepline prospect in the Springfield Venn zone, some 800m north of the REZ’s recent scout drilling program.

Nearly 20 years earlier, CRA reported surface rock samples grading 0.95% to 1.43%, and drill results of 10ft at 1.49% from 55ft and 15ft at 0.77% from 170ft.

Sydney-based REZ is undertaking further research towards developing a suitable exploration program to investigate the mineral bearing potential of the area.

Share this article:

ASX newcomer IRIS has put boots on the ground just days after listing with the start of a 5,000m reverse circulation drill program at its flagship Kookynie gold project.

The program is testing known structures at the Lily, Rise & Shine and Treasure-Whale prospects that have historically hosted high-grade gold mineralisation.

IRIS Metals (ASX:IR1) notes that this first pass program is based on a combination of desktop studies involving the review of historical information, site reconnaissance/field activities and valuable first-hand, empirical information obtained from local prospectors with intimate knowledge of the ground.

This program is expected to take about four weeks to complete though assays will be dispatched to the laboratory on a regular basis to ensure timely reporting.

“I congratulate our executive team on the successful ASX listing and the immediate commencement of drilling. We have promised investors that we plan to explore, so we are pleased to be immediately underway,” chairman Simon Lill said.

“The initial drill program will test Lily, Rise and Shine and Treasure-Whale, which historically are known to host high grade gold mineralisation, and have not been subject to systematic drill testing since the 1990s.”

Assay results from the drilling and interpretation of an aeromagnetic survey, which is expected soon, will be combined to plan the next round of drilling.

Drill program

Drilling at the Lily prospect will test both around historical high-grade workings and at depth along 400m of the prominent northeast trending, south dipping feature in the Niagara Gabbro Complex.

At Rise & Shine, drilling will locate and test continuity at depth of apparent low angle, southerly-dipping, east to northeast-striking quartz veins and stockworks.

Drilling at the Treasure and Whale prospects will test the prominent shallow south-dipping northeast trending structures as well as potential depth extensions.
