Castile Resources has commenced the 2021 drilling program on the 100% owned Rover Mineral Field with a focus on the PFS at Rover 1 and the high impact gold and copper targets all located within 30kms of the Rover 1 infrastructure. There are four targets of the 2021 drilling program:
ROVER 1 PROJECT – Targeting High Grade Gold and Copper Zones
A Pre-Feasibility Study is underway at Rover 1 on the high grade “bonanza” gold and copper zones that are similar to the super-rich gold lenses historically mined in the Tennant Creek goldfields. More intense drilling will determine the continuity of the large value of gold and copper metal dependent on each intercept.
EXPLORER 108 PROSPECT – Targeting High Grade Primary Copper System
Explorer 108 has defined a lead-zinc discovery with a polymetallic resource of approximately 12Mt @ 3.24% Zn, 2.00% Pb and 11.1/t Ag. The primary copper system is yet to be defined and will be the target of this program.
EXPLORER 142 PROSPECT – Targeting High Grade Gold Zone
Explorer 142 has defined an Inferred copper resource of 176kt @ 5.21% Cu. Drilling will target extensions of this resource and bonanza grade gold ore shoots.
ROVER 3 – Targeting High Grade IOCG Deposit
The target at Rover 3 is a gold-copper deposit similar to Rover 1 which is the typical Tennant Creek high grade IOCG ore system.
