Great Western Exploration Starts Drilling Degrussa-Style Copper-Gold Targets

Great Western Exploration ltd (ASX: GTE) has started drilling at the Fairbairn Copper Project in Western Australia.

The drilling will test three targets located 120km from Sandfire Resources Ltd’s (ASX: SFR) DeGrussa copper-gold project.

The DeGrussa Style Copper-Gold targets were identified by a fixed-loop electromagnetic (FLEM) ground survey and a heliborne EM survey.

Volcanic-hosted massive sulphide targets

The FLEM survey identified three isolated and discrete bedrock conductors, which are interpreted to be related to sulphide mineralisation.

The geological mapping and modelling that suggests the conductors have potential to be blind DeGrussa-style volcanic-hosted massive sulphide targets (VHMS).

Drilling will test three conductors, with VHMS style mineralisation often occurring in clusters of deposits.

What’s next?

Phase 1 drilling will target the centre and upper portions of the conductors, which are interpreted as the most prospective position of the modelled conductors.

To achieve this, a diamond drill rig will be used in Phase 1, with hole depths ranging from 250-350 meters.

Depending on the outcome, follow-up drill holes will be drilled based on successful mineralised intersections from the first phase of the program.
