Sharing is caring

Platina Resources Limited (ASX: PGM) (Platina Resources or “Company”) has commenced the reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at the Xanadu Gold Project in Western Australia. The Xanadu Gold Project is located in the Ashburton Basin, close to the Mt Olympus Gold Project, which is a multi-million-ounce gold endowment.

RC Drilling Program Details

Platina Resources has planned 11 holes for the Project. The first phase targets the core 4 km of the trend which is distinguished by historic gold occurrences. Platina Resources controls 562 km2 of the area with a strike length of 60 km along the Nanjigardy fault and Duck Creek Dolomite. The Duck Creek Dolomite stratigraphy is known to host gold mineralization in the project area.

Here, Platina Resources will test the induced polarisation anomalies. The polarization anomalies may represent shallow oxide mineralization zones or zones which potentially represent sulfides, usually associated with gold mineralization.

Commenting on the RC drilling program, Managing Director Corey Nolan said, “The program is an exciting opportunity given the number and width of high-grade historical drilling intercepts. These have never been followed up with a systematic exploration campaign.”

He also added that the Xanadu Project is located in a favorable region, referring to the Mr. Olympus gold deposit which is only 7 km to the east of the project.

The RC drilling program is expected to complete within 15 days. Platina Resources has worked closely with all landowners to secure clearances.
