    Dreadnought delivers bonanza mineralisation from rock chip samples at Rough Triangle

    Dreadnought Resources Limited (ASX:DRE) has reported ‘bonanza’ grades from rock chip sampling along the 1.2km Rough Triangle lode within its Tarraji-Yampi Project in Western Australia’s West Kimberley region.

    Results from the project-wide reconnaissance program, which covered a series of outcropping lodes, delivered antinomy, bismuth, copper, gold and silver, plus traces of cobalt. Results include:

    • 83.7% Cu, 142g/t Ag
    • 13.2% Cu, 197g/t Ag, 14.5% Sb, 1.6% Bi
    • 2.4% Cu, 1.4 g/t Au, 0.2% Co, 5.0% Bi
    • 45.6% Cu, 75g/t Ag, 0.1 g/t Au
    • 21.3% Cu, 291g/t Ag, 15.0% Sb, 3.1% Bi
    • 17.9% Cu, 272g/t Ag, 8.8% Sb, 1.9% Bi

    Further rock chips were recovered from a series of historical prospects including Ironclad and Wilson’s Reward, which were identified via mapping dating back to the 1950’s, along with historical tenement maps from the early 1900’s.

    These results, in addition to drill results from the Orion, Fuso and Grant’s Find prospects indicate that Tarraji-Yampi may house a significant Cu-Au-Ag-Bi-Sb-Co system.

    No sampling records exist for these prospects, and Dreadnought reports that it has sampled less than half of the project’s identified outcropping lodes, presenting potential upside to these results.

    Dreadnought reports that further reconnaissance activity including mapping and sampling of outcropping lodes will continue in September, with assay results expected in December 2021.

    “With less than half of the known lodes sampled to date, we are continuing to identify high tenor Cu-Au-Ag-Bi-Sb-Co mineralisation across Tarraji-Yampi”

    Management comments

    Dreadnought Resources Managing Director Dean Tuck said: “With less than half of the known lodes sampled to date, we are continuing to identify high tenor Cu-Au-Ag-Bi-Sb-Co mineralisation across Tarraji-Yampi. As we continue to sample these systems, a geochemical pattern is developing which may allow us to vector in towards larger, undercover mineralisation like we have recently seen at Orion. We will continue to assess additional targets while undertaking our drilling programs at Orion, Fuso and Grant’s Find.”
