Twenty Seven Co progressing well with VMS-focused drilling at Rover

Twenty Seven Co Ltd (ASX:TSC) is 65% of the way through a planned 1,500-metre RC drilling campaign at the Rover Project in WA which is focused on shallow VMS targets.

Drilling is focused on eight targets along the Maynard Hills greenstone belt and the first batch of samples from seven holes are being analysed with results expected shortly.

The eight discrete bedrock conductors being test-drilled are all strongly conductive and this is a typical geophysical response from sulphide mineralisation.

"Compelling targets"


Chief executive officer Ian Warland said: “RC drilling is progressing well and should be finishing up the current VMS-focused campaign shortly, with assay results to follow.

“The eight bedrock conductors being drill-tested are compelling targets since they all delivered geophysical responses consistent with underlying sulphide mineralisation.

“From a macro perspective, TSC still has a significant forward pipeline of targets at the Rover Project, which highlights the upside potential from gold and VMS focused exploration undertaken so far.”

VMS style mineralisation


The bedrock conductors being test-drilled were identified after a moving loop TEM (MLTEM) survey.

All the conductors are generally shallow, ranging from sub-cropping to 90 metres deep, with two at Creasy-2, one at Creasy-1, one at Red Bush and four further southeast along strike on the Maynard Hills greenstone belt.

TSCs consultant geophysicist believes that given every AEM anomaly followed up so far has proven to be a strong MLTEM conductor, there is a hRead More – Source
