Barton Gold winds up seismic targeting program at Tarcoola Project, South Australia

Precious metals explorer Barton Gold (ASX:BGD) has wrapped up a seismic targeting program over priority structural target areas at its Tarcoola Gold Project in South Australia. 

The company, which has a market capitalisation of $43.93 million, says a combination of light- and heavy-duty equipment was used to generate a signal captured by the geophones, which will now be analysed to create a ‘higher-resolution’ image of immediate sub-surface across Barton’s priority target area. 

Seismic services provider HiSeis led the regional seismic program, with over 40km of geophones laid out along 5 lines across a 13km-long zone prospective for repeats of the Perseverance Mine’s mineralised structures and ‘high-grade’ gold. 

Commenting on the seismic program, Barton Gold Managing Director Alex Scanlon says: “Tarcoola has a 130-year history of shallow, high-grade gold production, with little historical work to identify sources and controls of mineralisation.

This program continues our R&D-driven strategy to build a completely new regional geological model, identify the most prospective structures, and then systematically drill test them. 

We look forward to the results of the analysis later this year so that we can expedite priority drilling during the last quarter of 2023 and into 2024.”

Barton Gold is an ASX-listed gold-focused exploration company. The company’s project portfolio is situated in South Australia and includes the Tarcoola and Tunkillia Gold projects alongside the Central Gawler Mill Project.
