Breaker achieves 37g/t gold step-out intercept at Lake Roe
29 October 2021
Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) has reported new gold intercepts from diamond drilling at the Tura Lode system within its Lake Roe Project in Western Australia, with step-out work expanding the boundaries of known mineralisation.
The steeply-dipping lode system, which sits beneath the project’s 3.7km Bombora deposit, was tested by a three diamond holes that returned intercepts including:
- Hole BBDD0130: 1.6m @ 37.46g/t Au from 401.0m, with an estimated true width of 0.90m
- Hole BBDD0127: 0.7m @ 16.07g/t Au from 398.5m, 1.54m @ 14.65g/t Au from 408.46m within an estimated 6m true width intercept of 11.5m @ 3.52g/t Au, and 2m @ 5.64g/t Au from 575m (deeper intercept may indicate discovery of new flat lode)
Breaker reports that the results confirm a ‘substantial’ emerging zone of ‘high-grade’ gold mineralisation, lending further weight to underground mining potential below the project’s current open-pit resource.
“WE ARE HUGELY BUOYED BY THESE RESULTS AND WE HAVE IDENTIFIED UP TO SEVEN OTHER (SOUTH- PLUNGING) STEEP LODES”
Speaking on these latest results, Breaker Resources Managing Director Tom Sanders said: “We keep stepping out on 80m sections and keep on hitting the lode as predicted with excellent high-grade intercepts. The Tura lode now extends over 900m down-plunge and remains open to the south with more step-out holes planned. We are hugely buoyed by these results and we have identified up to seven other (south- plunging) steep lodes with scope to keep extending the underground potential. Add to this the high-grade north-plunging stacked flat lodes which have now been traced for over 2.2km along strike to a 500m vertical depth below the northern part of the Bombora deposit, and we feel we are now showing the makings of a substantial underground mining proposition to add to our already defined large open pit resource.”
Resource expansion drilling at the 1.4Moz Lake Roe Project is ongoing, with two RC rigs working on a 24/7 basis, supported by a third rig which is being utilised on a campaign basis.
Data from current drilling will be used to formulate a resource upgrade, which is scheduled for release in late 2021.
