Lodestar Minerals has started RAB drilling at the Big Sky gold target, located within its 100% owned Camel Hills tenements, 170km north west of Meekatharra, Western Australia.
Big Sky was identified by historic gold in soil and rock chip anomalies associated with a litho-structural contact between magnetic and non-magnetic rock units within the Errabiddy Shear Zone.
The Big Sky target extends over a distance of 1200m, beyond this area surface geochemical sampling is incomplete.
Close-spaced, shallow RAB drilling, in combination with trench sampling, is intended to test the contact zone for the presence of gold.
Individual drill traverses will extend up to 100m over the contact. In total, approximately 120 holes are planned for 2500m to 3000m of drilling. First assay results from the drilling are expected to be available early September.
