Western Yilgarn to refine and extend Boodanoo target

Western Yilgarn (ASX:WYX) will undertake geochemistry and mapping work in late April at the Boodanoo Project in Western Australia after being granted the exploration lease covering the Boodanoo Northeast target. 

The company aims to refine and extend the gold target, which is a 2km long gold in soil target up to 66 parts per billion, which was identified on the Boodanoo Northeast lease in March following a historical data review. 

General Manager Gavin Rutherford says the company is focusing on this gold target and the small prospecting licences held within the company’s 80km2 exploration lease because it provides a ‘compelling’ reason to test the target as soon as possible. 

Western Yilgarn reports the anomaly runs north into a nugget field covered by a  prospecting lease (P59/2374) held by a not-for-profit club for prospectors. 

The company is preparing to conduct a desktop review of mineral exploration reports (WAMEX) data available in respect of Boodanoo Northeast. 

“The greater potential of the lease (which includes a 2.4km long by 1.7km wide lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) target) will also be tested as we continue Western Yilgarn’s search for nickel, copper, and platinum group elements,” Rutherford says. 

The Boodanoo project comprises 3 granted exploration licences, including Boodanoo Northeast, covering a 130km2 area. 

Western Yilgarn is an explorer focused on its projects in Western Australia that are considered prospective for nickel, copper, cobalt, platinum group elements, and gold.
