A mineral exploration company, Prodigy Gold NL (ASX: PRX) on 11 April 2019 advised that the 9,600m Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drilling program is under progress at the Lake Mackay Project. This project is a joint venture between PRX and Independence Group NL in the ratio 3:7 (PRX- 30% and IGO 70%).
An Overview of Exploration Program:
The managing JV partner, Independence Group, has started the 9,600 metre RC drilling program. The RC drilling program is designed for testing the bedrock conductors that was generated from the Moving Loop Electromagnetic (MLEM) Surveys. At present, this MLEM survey is undertaken over the 63 identified target in the airborne electromagnetic survey (“AEM”) that got completed In January 2019. At the Grimlock Ni-CoMn Prospect as well as several conductors in the Blaze Au-Cu-Pb-Zn Prospect area, the MLEM survey is under progress. In order to determine the cause of the conductors and the presence of any metals, each conductor will be tested with 1-2 RC holes. The integration of the testing of the conductor along with the downhole EM will help in identifying a number of targets tested at a rapid rate over the next 2-3 months.
At present, the company aims to execute the RC drilling of 9,600 metres in this financial year. However, it might experience a challenge as there is a large number of conductors as well as other anomalies being targeted for initial drill-testing, which could extend the drilling program till FY2020.
In the month of March 2019, the MLEM started again. The plan is to test all remaining Priority 1 conductive target followed by the selection of Priority 2 and 3 targets to assess a range of conductors with the ranking based on prospective structural and geological settings and/or the favorable surface geochemistry results.
