High Resolution Gravity Survey to start at Red Setter Project

 

Drilling Continues

 

Patersons Range, Western Australia

 

 

Wishbone Gold Plc (AIM: WSBN, AQSE: WSBN), is pleased to announce a gravity survey is to start this weekend, over a 4km x 4km (16km2) area, on a spacing of 100 metres, that covers the centre of the highly encouraging drill results being delivered at the Company's Red Setter Gold-Copper Project in the Patersons Range area in Western Australia. The survey is expected to take 2 weeks, with processed results by the end of September.

 

As a basis and concept for the gravity survey, the mineralisation at Havieron is on the south side of the magnetic feature, where the gravity high is located and was targeted with drilling, that returned the maiden outstanding drill result. The mineralisation at Havieron then wraps around the magnetic feature. At Red Setter, drilling along the magnetic unit is providing important information, and with a depth of Permian cover of 150metres, we are now looking to define the high density/gravity areas that may represent higher sulphide content to better target drilling over such a large target area. The gravity survey is aimed at fast tracking targets for drilling in 2022. The gravity survey is now possible with the completion of a Heritage Survey, that has also opened up a large area for drilling over the 4km x 4km (16km2) area. This heritage survey was designed to clear 50 drill pad sites ready for an expanded drill programme over a strike length of ~3km.

 

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, "We are now in a position to press forward. We have a successful heritage survey completed, that has opened up the tenement to a gravity survey, and also dramatically increased approved drill pads over the project area. This enables us to target current and potential gravity anomalies over an area of 4km by 4km. This gravity survey will run in parallel to the current drilling programme. In the meantime, drilling continues on site at Red Setter, with mineralised diamond drill core being cut and dispatched to assay labs in Perth for gold/copper analysis and I look forward to reporting solid progress on numerous fronts."
