    Bardoc Announces High Grade Hits At Mulwarrie Gold Deposit

    Bardoc Gold Limited (ASX: BDC) has reported highly positive results from its diamond drilling program at the Mulwarrie deposit in Western Australia.

    The company announced that the diamond drilling at the Mulwarrie satellite deposit confirms multiple high-grade lodes. Important assay results include hits up to 12.27g/t Au.

    Bordoc said that the three diamond core holes, comprising 460m of drilling in total, have provided key insights into the orientation of the high-grade gold structures at Mulwarrie. The company said that the results are expected to assist with upgrading both the category and, ultimately, the size of the Mulwarrie deposit.

    BDC reported that the diamond core drilling has now moved to Aphrodite. The company also announced that RC Drilling would commence this week on exploration south of the Zoroastrian deposit.

    Mulwarrie Gold Deposit

    The Mulwarie Gold Project is located 150km north-west of Kalgoorlie in the Ularring District of the North Coolgardie Mineral Field. It is a part of BDC’s 100%-owned 2.6Moz Bardoc Gold Project, located 55km north of Kalgoorlie in WA.

    The two tenements which make up the Mulwarrie Gold Project lie within a 10km wide greenstone belt which forms the north-west extension of the Coolgardie Line.

    Encouraging Results from Diamond Drilling Program

    The company said that the three diamond core holes, comprising 460m of drilling in total, were drilled at the Mulwarrie satellite deposit to collect more detailed information on the orientation of the high-grade gold mineralization.

    The company reported that the diamond drilling confirms multiple high-grade lodes. The important assay results include:

    • 4.50m @ 7.03g/t Au from 53.4m;
    • 15.35m @ 4.08g/t Au from 61.65m including 4.40m @ 5.17g/t Au from 64.3m and 2.60m @ 12.27g/t Au from 73.4m; and
    • 2.3m @ 8.90g/t Au from 119m.

    These results are located 100m south-east of the historical open pit.

    Paving Way for Resource Upgrade

    The company said that this information is anticipated to allow it to target the next round of drilling into the more prospective areas of the deposit, laying the foundations for an upgrade to the Inferred Resource which are currently 881,000t at 2.8g/t Au for 79,000oz.

    What’s Next?

    The company said that the diamond core drilling has now moved to Aphrodite, where a series of holes are underway testing for down-plunge extensions to the 1.56Moz Aphrodite deposit.

    The diamond core rig at Aphrodite is currently undertaking extensional drilling from existing drill holes and a series of drill core wedges (navidrill cuts) to keep costs down and speed up the drilling progress.

    The company announced that the reverse circulation drilling is planned for later this month. This is targeted at extensional areas of gold mineralization, on exploration south of the Zoroastrian deposit.

    Bardoc Gold Managing Director, Mr. John Young, said: “Because of its strategic location and the free-milling nature of the ore, Mulwarrie has the potential to form an important source of high-grade ore within the Bardoc Gold Project. The diamond drill results have given us a clear picture of the position and orientation of the high-grade gold lodes, providing clear vectors for further Reverse Circulation drilling targeting increases in the overall size of the Resource.
