Bardoc Gold (BDC) has identified a mineralised corridor, with more than 10 targets now identified as high priority for further exploration.

The discovery was made through recent drilling at the North Kanowna Star Project which forms part of the 3.07-million ounce Bardoc gold Project in Western Australia.

The program included 98 aircore holes for 5562 metres, 47 reverse circulation holes for 6205 metres and three diamond core holes for 224 metres, with mineralisation reported in the majority of the holes drilled.

Positively for the company, the latest drill results returned significant gold mineralisation with results including nine metres at 2.45 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) from 61 metres, one metre at 18g/t gold from 47 metres, three metres at 5.63g/t gold from 69 metres and 1.2 metres at 13.6g/t gold from 35.8 metres.

The company said the latest results significantly upgraded the potential of the North Kanowna Star district, which is now considered to be comparable to the one million ounce Zoroastrian-Excelsior corridor.

Executive Director Neil Biddle commented on the results.

“The scale of the alteration and mineralisation across the North Kanowna Star Project area is truly exceptional, extending over more than three kilometres in length, similar in strike to the Zoroastrian/Excelsior corridor that forms the backbone of our 3.07Moz Bardoc Gold Project,” he said.

“Our exploration team has identified more than ten high priority prospects, with technical work now underway to integrate the geological, geophysical and geochemical data to rank the prospects and develop follow-up exploration programs.”

Bardoc Gold’s geology team is now compiling multi-element geochemical data and incorporating that with the geophysics and logging data from recent drilling. This will allow the company to generate an integrated geological, geophysical and geochemical model to support ongoing exploration programs.

Company shares ended the day trading steady at 6.7 cents.
