Diamond drilling at Recharge Metals’ (ASX: REC) Brandy Hill South project has uncovered more “significant” sulphide zones, as well as visible copper.
The company has announced two diamond holes drilled at the project were testing the modelled down hole transient electromagnetic (DHTEM) conductor, BHD026-2.
Both holes intercepted zones of massive sulphides, blebby sulphides and disseminated sulphide mineralisation.
These mineralised zones “broadly coincided” with the location of the high-order conductor.
Visual inspection of the drill core, along with in-field portable XRF analysis, indicates copper and nickel are present.
The latest results are in line with two diamond holes that tested high-order conductor BHD026-3 earlier this month.
Recharge managing director Brett Wallace said the company was “very excited” to once again intercept “significant widths” of mineralised zones.
A final fifth diamond drill hole is underway from the program.
“We now look forward to completing the final diamond hole testing the remaining DHTEM conductor, and receiving the assay results from the first two diamond holes reported on the 14th August that had similar findings, as well as the assays from the eight pre-collars,” Mr Wallace added.
Exploring Brandy Hill South
Brandy Hill South was acquired in 2021 from Revolution Mining. The project is located within Western Australia’s Murchison Province.
Nearby operations include Silver Lake Resources’ (ASX: SLR) Deflector copper-gold mine.
Limited previous exploration at Brandy Hill South comprised three shallow reconnaissance reverse circulation holes.
These holes all intercepted “significant copper” over substantial strike and ended in mineralisation.
Earlier this year, Recharge announced it had unearthed broad nickel zones during drilling at Brandy Hill South. Copper and silver mineralisation was also encountered.
Highlight intercepts from this drilling were 42.1m at 0.26% nickel from 96.9m; 29m at 0.21% nickel from 144m; and 57m at 0.25% nickel from 109m.
Meanwhile, other mineralised intercepts were 6m at 0.31% copper from 141m; 119m at 1.3 grams per tonne silver from 257m, including 1m at 13g/t silver; 10m at 0.41% copper from 171mm, including 1.2m at 1.72% copper; and 234m at 1.5g/t silver from 159m, including 1.2m at 18g/t silver.
