Second Drill Rig Onsite at Red Setter Project


Patersons Range, Western Australia



Wishbone Gold Plc (AIM: WSBN, AQSE: WSBN), is pleased to announce that a second drill rig for the Company's Red Setter Gold-Copper Project in the Patersons Range area in Western Australia, is now on site and drilling (Photo 1) 230 metres from the first drill rig (Photo 2).


DDH1 Drilling, with extensive drilling experience in the Patersons Range, will mud rotary drill through the Permian cover to a depth of about 130 metres and then diamond drill through to the target zones identified by magnetic modelling.


The Red Setter Project is situated on the 57.4km2 wholly owned exploration licence EL45/5297 and is located 13 km south-west of Newcrest Mining's Telfer Gold-Copper Mine and 60km west of Newcrest and Greatland Gold's Havieron gold-copper discovery.

Richard Poulden, Wishbone Gold's Chairman, commented, "I am very pleased that a second rig for Red Setter is now being onsite and drilling. DDH1 Drilling know the ground conditions well in the Patersons Range following extensive experience at Havieron, from initial discovery to current operations.  We are also in the process of extending heritage approved areas at Red Setter with a further survey to start towards the end of August. We are also discussing plans for a gravity survey which can detect mineral composition through varying rock density. This is an exciting time for Wishbone."
