WA-focused gold and lithium explorer BMG Resources Limited has received and processed all assays from the second drilling program at its wholly-owned Bullabulling project located in the Coolgardie region of the Eastern Goldfields in Western Australia.
The next phase of work will include step out drilling at Ubini and Poolmans Wealth, and follow up drilling of additional targets.
BMG Resources Managing Director Bruce McCracken said: “At Ubini, BMG confirmed the lithium bearing pegmatites extend for more than 250 metres and remain open along strike.
“At Poolmans Wealth, drilling delivered further shallow high-grade gold intercepts.
“With a large, strategically located footprint of around 185 square kilometres of Coolgardie ground, Bullabulling is located in a highly sought after region with a long history of gold production that is now also home to some of Australia’s most significant lithium discoveries – including the Mt Marion, Buldania and Pioneer Dome deposits, as well as the Kangaroo Hills lithium project.”
Assays returned from the second phase drilling program (36-holes for ~2,800 metres) extend shallow lithium-bearing pegmatites and deliver further high-grade gold intersections of up to 18.1 g/t Au at Bullabulling.
At the Ubini lithium prospect, drilling confirmed the continuation of mineralised pegmatites, extending the strike of the pegmatite field to more than 250 metres including:
- 4m @ 0.56 per cent Li2O from 44 metres (23BBRC021)
Drilling also identified a series of stacked pegmatites which commence at surface and dip to the north-east, with mineralisation open in all directions.
Drilling at the Poolmans Wealth gold prospect delivered shallow high-grade intercepts including:
- 2 metres @ 18.1 g/t Au from 34 metres (23BBRC036)
- 1 metres @ 10.6 g/t Au from 58 metres (23BBRC034)
