Moho Resources begins maiden diamond drilling at East Sampson Dam

Moho Resources Ltd (ASX:MOH) has started diamond drilling at East Sampson Dam (ESD) gold prospect within the Silver Swan North Project in Western Australias Goldfields.

The company plans to drill seven diamond holes for around 650 metres to obtain high-quality core for structural information, geological data, moisture, density and material for further metallurgical test-work.

Information for first resource

Moho managing director Shane Sadleir said: “Moho is excited to be undertaking its maiden diamond drilling program at East Sampson Dam.

“The program is designed to provide essential information for our first mineral resource estimate at the prospect.”

Diamond drilling

West Core Drilling has started to drill the seven oriented holes into saprolitic clays in the oxide zone and deeper transitional material.

The diamond drill program has been designed to obtain:

  • High-quality drill core for metallurgical test work;
  • To understand the structures controlling the mineralisation to model it more accurately during resource studies;
  • Quality geotechnical information on which Whittle Pit modelling will be based;
  • Accurate densities and moisture measurements to aid resource modelling; and
  • Quality core to study the geology closely and therefore refine the ESD geological model.

Drill-hole imaging

Along with detailed data collection on the core, the company also plans to use the services of Wireline Services Group (WSG) to collect drill-hole imaging and rock property data.

The company will collect Optical and Acoustic televiewer data for structure, magnetic susceptibility and rock densitRead More – Source
