DIAMOND DRILLING KICKS OFF AT CORK TREE WELL

Brightstar Resources Commences Essential Drilling for Pre-Feasibility Study at Laverton Gold Project

Brightstar Resources Limited (ASX:BTR) has initiated a ~2,000m diamond drilling program at Cork Tree Well, part of the Laverton Gold Project. This inaugural drilling, consisting of twenty holes, is aimed at supporting the ongoing Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) by focusing on metallurgical and geotechnical analysis within the open pit shells outlined in the September 2023 Scoping Study.

Brightstar’s Managing Director, Alex Rovira, commented: “As part of the PFS work streams underway, Brightstar has commenced the maiden diamond drilling campaign at Cork Tree Well in order to generate information both within the ore zones and the designed pit walls, which will provide the requisite material for metallurgical test work and improve Brightstar’s knowledge of geological and geotechnical domains within the CTW area. We are also expecting to receive assay results from reverse circulation drilling competed at the Aspacia and Link Zone deposits at the Menzies Gold Project in December. This 5,000m program was designed as extensional and infill drilling to grow the existing resource at the Link Zone, and provide sufficient drill density to potentially declare a maiden resource at Aspacia.


It is an exciting time to be drilling, growing our mineral resource base, completing the technical work for the PFS underway and also see the progress our joint venture partners BML are making with the Selkirk mining campaign, which is due to conclude this quarter. A successful mining campaign at Selkirk will see positive cashflow generated for Brightstar to continue to fund exploration efforts across the Laverton and Menzies Gold Projects.”
