Through this latest round of drilling activity, the company is trying to convert some of the of Cooroorah’s “inferred” resource into the higher confidence “indicated” resource category. As per the Geophysical logging of the first hole (COR014) in the current drilling programme, the Mammoth seam intersected with a thickness of 4.5m. The company has revealed that like previous exploration programs, Mammoth seam is looking very clean and devoid of any stone bands. The first hole (COR014) is strategically located towards the East of the tenement to test the seam continuance closer to the interpreted Jellinbah fault.
As per the Coal quality analysis for the Mammoth seam from the 2017/18 program, there is high-quality coking coal with a secondary high energy Low Volatile PCI product at a combined laboratory yield of circa 90 percent. Following the completion of coal seams’ coring in hole COR014, it is expected that the drill rig will move to site COR003 to test an underexplored area between the 2018 Resource area and the historic Resource area. Coal cores are now getting transferred to the laboratory, and it is expected that the outcome of the coal quality analysis will come late in the first quarter of FY19.
