- WA1 Resources (WA1) begins its first drilling program at the West Arunta project in Western Australia
- Drilling will focus on the Pachpadra and Luni prospects with the aim of evaluating zones of host mineralization and testing peak gravity and magnetic tops.
- Six reverse circulation holes will be drilled at depths of between 240 and 400 meters and work is expected to take around three weeks
- WA1 will use a $150,000 grant from the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety to drill the P1 and P2 targets at Pachpadra
- WA1 ends the day 7.69% in the green with shares trading at 14 cents
WA1 Resources (WA1) has started its first drilling program on the West Arunta project in Western Australia.
Drilling will focus on the Pachpadra and Luni prospects with the aim of evaluating host mineralization zones.
Four reverse circulation (RC) holes will be drilled at Pachpadra and two RC holes will be drilled at Luni to test each of the gravity and magnetic peaks associated with large geophysical anomalies.
The holes will be drilled to depths between 240 and 400 meters and drilling is expected to take approximately three weeks.
Results will be announced once assays have been received for all holes.
WA1 will use a $150,000 Exploration Incentive Program grant from the Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety to drill the P1 and P2 targets at Pachpadra.
“We have now begun the first drill tests of significant geophysical anomalies in an area that has seen extremely limited exploration and where there remains potential to make a major discovery,” Chief Executive Paul Savich said.
“We have systematically improved our understanding of the West Arunta project over the
four years with a focus on acquiring complementary datasets. This work reinforced the relevance of our exploration model and gave us the confidence to undertake our first drilling program.
