Flynn Gold (ASX:FG1) is lining up aircore (AC) and reverse circulation (RC) drilling at its recently optioned Parker Dome Lithium Project in Western Australia.
The company says drilling will focus on lithium pegmatite targets and will be undertaken alongside reprocessing and interpretation of a 2018 SkyTEM survey.
Flynn reports permitting activities with the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety are required before drilling.
The company notes drilling is being planned for after the completion of a geochemical soil sampling program at Parker Dome, which has begun today (15 December).
According to Flynn, the soil sampling program will initially focus on the Western and Eastern Pegmatite Trends defined by historic rotary air blast (RAB) drilling to deliver the first systematic lithium and associated pathfinder assays for the project.
Up to 700 soil samples are expected to be collected over the next 2 weeks. Assays are expected to be received in early Q1 2024.
Flynn states this is the first systematic lithium exploration undertaken at the project.
Once complete, Flynn notes field reconnaissance, geological mapping, and potential follow-up infill soil sampling are being lined up for Parker Dome ahead of drilling.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Neil Marston says the company expects to define new targets for drill testing to complement targets generated from historic exploration drilling.
Flynn Gold is a mineral explorer with a portfolio of projects in Tasmania and Western Australia.
The company holds 9 wholly owned tenements in northeast Tasmania considered ‘highly prospective’ for gold, tungsten, and tin.
As of 30 September 2023, Flynn Gold had $2.527 million cash and cash equivalents at hand, according to its latest quarterly report.
