Hamelin Gold shines bright with major drilling program at West Tanami Project in WA

Hamelin Gold (ASX:HMG) is embarking on a ‘major’ drilling program set to begin in the coming weeks across several prospects, within the West Tanami Project in Western Australia. 

The 2023 field program encompasses reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling at the Sultan and Fremlins prospect, along with surface geochemical programs along the Sultan and Newkirk gold corridors, Hamelin notes in its quarterly report for the period ending 31 March 2023.

Additionally, RC drilling will follow up on the ‘exciting high-grade’ gold discovery at the Sultan Prospect, which includes diamond drillhole TSD0007 with 7.6m @ 3.4g/t Au from 326.2m, including 1.1m @ 15.9g/t Au from 329.7m. 

Hole TSD0007 was co-funded through the Western Australian government Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) program. Additionally, Hamelin Gold has been ‘successfully’ granted EIS co-funded drilling for RC and diamond drilling at the Sultan and REE targets.
