Flynn flags follow up Trafalgar fieldwork in Q4

Flynn Gold (ASX:FG1) is planning to tackle and complete multiple exploration programs across its Tasmanian and Western Australian assets, following a jam-packed September quarter. 

Speaking to Mining.com.au, Flynn Gold Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director Neil Marston says the company’s main focus for Q4 is to complete drilling and the results review from the Trafalgar drilling at Golden Ridge.

Next quarter, the $8.86 million market capitalisation will also seek to finalise geological and structural studies to further understand and interpret the mineralisation and new geological framework for Trafalgar and the wider Golden Ridge Project area. 

Preliminary planning for a wide step-out drill program will also test continuity of mineralisation between the Brilliant and Trafalgar prospects through a link zone area. 

Marston tells this news service results to date have been encouraging to the point Flynn can drill other areas of interest, such as the link zone. 

“I suppose the aim of what the company is trying to do is to build a large inventory over the Golden Ridge prospect. To date, we’ve only drill tested Brilliant and Trafalgar, with some good results.”

Planning for follow up drilling at Trafalgar is underway, with several drill pad locations already permitted. 

Marston outlines that during Q3 2023, the company hit multiple ‘super high-grade’ gold intervals through drilling within the Golden Ridge Project. 

“It’s a growing opportunity for us. Once we’ve got the last of the results in and done some modelling around all the geology and structures, we should have some good targets to go and drill test in phase three when we execute that

As previously reported by Mining.com.au, at hole TFDD013 at Trafalgar, Flynn Gold returned results including 4m @ 23.7g/t Au from 23m, including 0.5m @ 169.8g/t Au from 25.9m. 

During Q3, TFDD015 tested for strike extensions to veins zones T1 and T2. The T2 vein zone ‘high-grade’ interval recorded in TFDD015 occurs as a pyrite-galena-sphaleritepyrrhotite quartz-vein with visible gold within altered granite.

The interval is some 75m down-dip of a similar high-grade interval of 5.0m @ 12.56g/t Au (including 0.4m @ 150g/t Au) from 202m in historic drill hole TFD001, which reported mineralisation occurring in a similar zone of pyrite-galena-sphalerite-pyrrhotite veining with visible gold. The ‘high-grade’ interval in TFDD015 is significant as it further demonstrates the potential for ‘high-grade’ gold mineralisation to continue both at depth as well as along strike.

Trafalgar’s gold system has since expanded beyond 400m east-west strike length, from surface to a depth of 420m and remains open in all directions. 

Meanwhile at Warrentina, Flynn completed a 2-hole diamond drill program — which as previously announced — tested ‘highly prospective’ orogenic-style gold mineralisation.

Marston says: “We’ve been drilling at the Warrentinna Project, which has just finished, so we will be having results starting to come through from that drilling in about a month’s time. 

What we have seen to date looks pretty encouraging. So we are happy with that initial program.”

In Q4 the company also plans to conduct drilling at the Firetower and Gold and Battery Metals projects. 

As of 30 September 2023, the company had $2.527 million cash at hand.
