Platina Starts Maiden Drilling Program At Xanadu Gold Project, Western Australia
The first phase of the program at Xanadu will target the core 4km of the 10km section of the Xanadu gold trend distinguished by historic gold occurrences drilled within the Duck Creek Dolomite, where it is affected by the Nanjilgardy fault zone and its splays.
Along this target area, the company will test several induced polarisation (IP) chargeable
anomalies, potentially representing sulphides with associated gold mineralisation, as well as shallower oxide mineralised zones – see Figure 1.
Platina Managing Director, Mr Corey Nolan, said the program was an exciting opportunity given the number and width of high-grade gold historical drill intercepts which have never been followed up with a systematic exploration campaign.
“Xanadu is located in a favourable regional scale structural setting, with the multi-million-ounce Mt Olympus gold deposit situated 7km to the east. Widespread gold mineralisation is identified within a large and intense hydrothermal alteration system which extends for over 10km in strike extent,” Mr Nolan said.
“The drilling program is expected to take 15 days to complete. The company has worked closely with the traditional landowners to secure the required site clearances.”
Platina controls a ground position of 562km2 with contiguous coverage along a 60km strike length of the Nanjilgardy fault and its splays and the Duck Creek Dolomite stratigraphy which is host to gold mineralisation within the project area.
