Aldoro Resources Ltd (ASX: ARN) shares were booming today after the company announced it has commenced drilling at its Narndee project. By the market’s close, the Aldoro share price was trading 8.2% higher at 33 cents.
Let’s take a closer look at the gold and nickel miner’s latest news.
Drilling kicks off
The Aldoro share price had a bumper day after the company announced frontline drilling at its 100%-owned project site has begun. Aldoro advised that the drilling was being undertaken in areas where it’s already found “high confidence” anomalies, with fixed loop electromagnetic surveys. It’s also secured a diamond drilling contractor, which it expects to be on-site in June.
Aldoro is targeting a 5,000-metre program at Narndee, near Cooladar Hill in Western Australia, with the ability to increase its program size if it receives promising results. The current drilling is focused on three confirmed target sites within that zone.
The company says its initial drilling holes will also act as “dual-purpose inspection holes” to gauge the suitability of those targets for further down-hole transient electromagnetic surveys.
The Narndee project is situated on clay bedrock, which has the possibility to produce misleading results.
These surveys improve the accuracy of any future drilling locations, reducing the risk of expensive drilling in redundant targets. The original surveys were conducted by independent geologists from Southern Geoscience Consultants.
Aldoro is also in the process of finalising a gradient array (GAIP) survey. GAIP is an electrical geophysical technique that has the ability to identify disseminated sulphide mineralisation, a type of ore that often contains copper and zinc deposits.
Aldoro shares listed on the ASX in September 2018. The company conducts mineral exploration and development and has a collection of gold and nickel-focused advanced exploration projects all located in Western Australia.
The Narndee Igneous Complex, which comprises the project Aldoro has just begun drilling, is its flagship drilling region. The company has previously found it to be “highly prospective” for nickel, copper and platinum group (platinum, palladium, rhodium) mineralisation.
The company’s other projects include the Cathedrals Belt Nickel Project near Mount Alexander in WA and four separate gold tenements, which are currently under company review.
