Drilling at Bligh Resources Ltd.'s Bundarra gold project in Western Australia increased its total mineral resource by 18% in tonnage and 14% in ounces to 9.7 million tonnes at 2.1 g/t gold for 660,000 ounces.
The four-hole step-out drill program tested the potential downplunge component of the Wonder North Deeps mineralization on a nominal spacing of 40 meters along strike by 100 meters downdip.
The updated resource delineated an added 1.5 million tonnes at the Wonder North deposit, increasing its overall tonnage by 29% and giving an updated estimate of 6.5 million tonnes at 2.2 g/t gold for 470,000 ounces.
Drilling in November returned mineralized intercepts of up to 28 meters at 3.0 g/t gold from 342 meters, including 4 meters at 5.8 g/t gold.
Bligh said it will proceed with planning a subsequent drilling program to further test the potential of mineralization that remains open at Wonder North and with reviewing and planning exploration at other priority targets within the project area.
