Platina Resources Limited (ASX: PGM) announces further exploration at its Xanadu and Beete gold projects in Western Australia in response to soaring gold prices hitting an all-time high. Platina Resources is taking advantage of the opportunity to make the most of its gold projects as gold prices climbed over USD 2,000 per ounce and reached USD 2,070 in December 2023.

Platina Resources Managing Director Mr Corey Nolan said,

“Platina’s cash position is more than $9 million, ensuring drilling programs can be delivered without dilution to shareholders,” Mr Nolan said. 

“The company is actively planning and securing approvals to commence a significant phase of exploration reflecting our commitment to enhancing value through strategic drilling activities.

“We’re particularly eager to commence further drilling at our Xanadu Gold Project in the  Ashburton Basin to unlock the potential presence of an extensive gold system at Xanadu Deeps.”

Focus on Xanadu and Beete Gold Projects

Platina Resources plans to start significant drilling at the Xanadu Gold Project in the Ashburton Basin. The project boasts a substantial gold alteration footprint spanning over 10km in strike length. Platina aims to unlock the potential of a significant gold system by initiating three proposed diamond drill (DD) tails, each up to 500m, at Xanadu West.

Along with Xanadu, Platina Resources will also undertake an air-core drilling program at the Beete Project, 50km south of Norseman. Covering 134 km2, Beete holds the potential to be an extension of the Norseman Greenstone belt. The region is yet to undergo systematic exploration. Cultural heritage clearance processes are underway, with drilling scheduled for Q2.

 “Beete’s gold, nickel and lithium potential remains hidden under a shallow blanket of cover. Drilling will aim to test for bedrock anomalies using targets generated through soil sample  analysis and geophysical interpretations.”
