KalGold launches follow up WA gold drilling blitz

Kalgoorlie Gold Mining has launched a second RC drill campaign to follow up its initial successes achieved at the company’s La Mascotte and Great Ophir prospects within its Bulong Taurus project just 35kms east of Kalgoorlie.   Drilling at Bulong Taurus is primarily aimed at building on the success of the first drill program by targeting extensions of known mineralisation.

A strong focus will be on the area south of KalGold’s outcropping La Mascotte gold prospect that was recently defined through geophysical, geological and historic drill dataset analysis.  Curiously, gold nuggets from the new target area south of La Mascotte were located recently by prospectors and display an angular shape, indicating they originated locally and have not been transported far according to the company.

KalGold only listed on the ASX in November last year and the company has wasted no time getting stuck into a drilling blitz that is already onto its second pass. Gold hits from the first pass at Bulong Taurus returned some very encouraging results and with refined targeting strategies underway, the second round of drilling may well set the scene for further potential successes for the newly minted WA based junior explorer.
