Vango Mining Ltd (ASX:VAN) will drill three diamond holes into key high-grade targets in the Contessa Corridor at Neds Creek Joint Venture Project where the company is earning a 51% interest from Lodestar Minerals Ltd (ASX:LSR).
Neds Creek is southeast of the companys 100%-owned Marymia Gold Project, 300 kilometres northeast of Meekatharra in the Mid-West region of Western Australia.
The initial two diamond drill holes will test immediately down plunge to the northeast of previous high-grade intersections at Contessa:
- 4 metres at 78 g/t gold from 140 metres in LNR026; and
- 5.1 metres at 28.1 g/t from 143 metres in diamond drill hole LND0032.
This diamond drilling program is set to begin this month upon completion of a diamond drilling program in progress at the Marymia project.
Subject to results, stage-2 resource definition drilling will be planned for the highly prospective Contessa Corridor.
Third diamond hole planned
In addition, examination of previous diamond drilling at Gidgee Flat prospect indicates that mineralisation is associated with intense pyritisation of mafic rocks, in contact with syenite veins with haematite.
A third diamond hole will test the projection of the Gidgee Flat mineralisation northeast under Proterozoic cover associated with a key flexure in the mineralised syenite contact
