CORK TREE WELL DEPOSIT EXPANDS WITH AIRCORE DRILLING

Brightstar Uncovers Potential for Significant Resource Growth

Brightstar Resources Limited (ASX: BTR) has announced exciting results from their recent 2,500m aircore drilling program at Cork Tree Well (CTW) within the Laverton Gold Project (LGP). The program extended the strike length of the Cork Tree Well deposit by an impressive 1.5km to the north, showcasing a strong potential for resource growth beyond the current 303koz @ 1.4g/t Au Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE).

Alex Rovira, Brightstar’s Managing Director, shared his enthusiasm:

This drilling program was designed to test the northern strike extension of the Cork Tree Well mineralisation under shallow cover, where historical work poorly tested the potential for addition mineralised structures. The results of this program are highly encouraging given there is a clear +1.5km strike extent at the northern end of the tenement that is highly anomalous with mineralised intercepts over multiple drill lines.

Importantly, the bottom of hole lithology from our aircore program indicates that this area also correlates with the sedimentary unit and mafic contact that hosts the 303koz Cork Tree Well deposit to the south. We are looking forward to getting the aircore rig back out there with a follow up drill program to tighten up the spacings between the recently drilled lines to better refine deeper RC drilling targets and gain further insight into the northerly extension of the mine geology corridor which is exposed within the Cork Tree Well pits.
