Woodlark Gold Project operator Geopacific Resources Ltd has further confirmed a gold discovery on the historic gold field which may open up new zones to add to future developments.
Geopacific has released new assay results showing new gold intersections from the Boscalo area of the Woodlark Gold Project including 11m @ 6.75g/t Au; 7m @ 5.87g/t Au and 3m @ 11.99g/t Au.
Geopacific managing director, Ron Heeks, said rhe Boscalo discovery is an indicator of gold mineralisation that lies hidden beneath the shallow limestone veneer.
“Woodlark’s existing deposits only scratch the surface of the regional potential and our work to identify attractive exploration targets is progressing well. We are excited by the apparent discovery potential across our 60km2 mining lease and 580km2 of exploration licences.”
Originally thought to be an extension of Kulumadau East mineralisation, Geopacific confirmed in December 2017 that Boscalo represents the discovery of a significant new zone of gold mineralisation situated beneath shallow cover adjacent to the Kulumadau East deposit.
The main zone strikes to the north-west and is currently delineated over a two hundred metre strike length using shallow RC drilling. Mineralisation remains open at depth and along strike. In addition to the main zone, a parallel zone of mineralisation between Boscalo and Kulumadau East has also been identified, further confirming the significant potential for additional gold discoveries in the area.
Boscalo was first identified with several broad and high-grade intercepts in June. However,
the orientation of the mineralised zone at Boscalo is different to Kulumadau East, striking to the north-west as opposed to the more north-south strike of Kulumadau East. Higher grade zones fall within a much broader, mineralised envelope.
To date the majority of holes have been drilled to a shallow depth of 120 metres with some holes reaching 140 metres.
