Hamelin launches 5,000m AC program

Mineral resource explorer Hamelin Gold (ASX:HMG) is progressing with various exploration activities across its West Tanami Project in Western Australia. 

The $13.38 million market capitalisation says it has moved forward with a +5,000m aircore (AC) drilling program to test the Newkirk, Olsen, and Klinger prospects.

This follows the completion of both a 4,400m aircore (AC) drilling program and EIS co-funded 2,500m program conducted across the Fremlins gold, Hawkeye nickel-copper-platinum group element (Ni-Cu-PGE), Harkonan, LeBeau, and Schultz prospects respectively. 

Drilling at Fremlins comprised 70 drillholes designed to target the southern extensions of the prospect. 

The company has also completed surface soil sampling programs at the Bandicoot, Newkirk, Sultan, and Far SW prospects ahead of a reverse circulation (RC) drill program at Sultan to begin in late September this year. 

Assays from recent drilling are also expected to be returned during late September through to November this year.  

Speaking on the exploration, Hamelin Gold Managing Director Peter Bewick says: “Exploration programs in the West Tanami are in full swing and the Hamelin team are doing a great job delivering a safe and well managed program.

We have recently completed 5,000m of aircore and 2,500m of RC drilling with a further 6,000m of drilling to be completed in September-October 2023.” 

Hamelin Gold is a gold explorer based in Perth, Western Australia, which has a current landholding of 2,277km-square in the Tanami Gold Province. 

The company’s West Tanami project represents a belt-scale greenfields opportunity hosting the same geology and key structures as Callie with minimal modern exploration completed across the Hamelin landholdings. 

Hamelin Gold had $7.7 million cash at hand as of 30 June 2023, according to its latest quarterly report.
