Bushranger Copper/ Gold Project Drilling Programme – Progress Update
The Board of Xtract Resources Plc (“Xtract” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a further update regarding progress of the second hole in the Phase One diamond drilling programme at the Racecourse Mineral Resource on the Bushranger porphyry copper-gold exploration project located in the Lachlan Fold Belt (“LFB”), New South Wales, Australia.
· Drilling in hole BRDD-21-002 has been extended to the current depth of 846.5m, past the original planned depth of 750m, as the hole has continued to intersect copper mineralisation.
· Mineralisation occurs in the form of disseminated and fracture-fill chalcopyrite throughout the lower marginal alteration zone of the porphyry to the current depth.
· Drilling will continue while the hole remains within the mineralised zone.
Hole BRDD-21-002, the second hole of up to six planned holes in the Phase One Drilling Programme at the Racecourse Mineral Resource on the Bushranger Project, is collared over 300m from the previous hole, angled at -80 degrees and is offset from strike with the aim of crossing through the down-plunge extension of the deposit at depth.
