Drilling Contract signed for Red Setter Project
Patersons Range, Western Australia
Wishbone Gold Plc (AIM: WSBN, AQSE: WSBN), is pleased to announce that it has signed an important contract for the drilling of the Company’s Red Setter Gold-Copper Project in the Patersons Range area in Western Australia.
The Red Setter Project is situated on the 57.4km2 wholly owned Exploration Licence EL45/5297 and is located 13 km south-west of Newcrest Mining’s Telfer Gold-Copper Mine and 60km west of Newcrest and Greatland Gold’s Havieron gold-copper discovery.
The first phase of the drilling contract is for 3,000m of drilling at Red Setter, with the second phase of the contract for a further 7,000m of drilling split between Wishbone’s Red Setter Project and the Company’s Cottesloe Project to the south.
The track mounted drilling rig is a multi-purpose rig, capable of 150m Reverse Circulation and diamond core to 1,200m.
Richard Poulden, Wishbone Gold’s Chairman, commented, “We are very pleased to have finally secured this specialist drill rig for our long awaited Red Setter drilling programme. All exploration companies have found it difficult to secure drilling services in Western Australia, especially with the COVID restriction in the State over the last year and the competitive backdrop experienced for miners and explorers in the current mineral exploration boom. We are hopeful of having the rig on site and drilling at Red Setter before the end of May.”
