Wishbone Gold PLC (AIM:WSBN) Drilling underway at Red Setter

Wishbone Gold Plc (AIM: WSBN, AQSE: WSBN), is pleased to announce that the drill rig and support trucks operated by Strike Drilling have arrived at its Red Setter project and that drilling is underway on the newly cleared heritage areas.

As previously reported on the 13th December 2022, initial assay results have confirmed the geological observations of a broad hydrothermal system with gold and copper associated with quartz-carbonate-sulphide veins present within all lithology types, and often with breccia textures.

Following the MT (“magnetotellurics”) survey undertaken by Expert Geophysics in which they provided the opinion that Red Setter was an analogue of Telfer, the Company changed the exploration program. It now reflects the facts it is looking for broad spreads of mineralisation rather than single high grade bulls eyes. (image 3)

As previously reported on 16th March 2023, Southern Geoscience Consultants and Expert Geophysics have identified two target areas, MMT – R1 and MMT – R2. At this stage of first phase interpretation efforts the focus has been on the primary MobileMT targets in close proximity to the main Red Setter known mineralised zone and magnetic target, and also those targets that are at a relatively shallow depth (<500m), and adjacent to accessible locations which have been cleared by Aboriginal Heritage.

The Red Setter Project is situated on Wishbone Gold’s 57.4km2 wholly owned exploration licence EL45/5297 and is located 13km south-west of Newcrest Mining’s Telfer gold-copper mine and 60km west of Newcrest and Greatland Gold’s Havieron gold-copper discovery.

Richard Poulden, Wishbone Gold’s Chairman, commented:

“We are pleased to be continuing on from last year’s successful drill program which confirmed a hyperthermal gold/copper system. The analysis done in the meantime has added greatly to our knowledge of the system and provides additional targets on which to focus.”
