Historical drill data bolster Raiden Resources (ASX:RDN, DAX:YM4) gold footprint in Pilbara region


  • Significant gold intercepts were revealed during the review of the historical drill data from the Yandicoogina Project.
  • The deposit witnessed the drilling programs in the 1980s and no follow-up work has been done on the prospect.
  • The gold intercepts up to 11.4 g/t from shallow depths were discovered from the historical data.
  • Raiden is planning a field reconnaissance program on the prospect to determine the course of follow-up work on the tenement.

Minerals explorer Raiden Resources Limited (ASX:RDN, DAX:YM4) has shared the findings of review of the historical data from the Yandicoogina Project in Pilbara region. The Company successfully identified significant gold intercepts from the shallow holes drilled back in the 1980s. The companies that drilled those holes did not execute any follow-up work despite having such high-grade intercepts. The data that have been reviewed by Raiden is mainly from three prospects- Uncle Tom, Black Shepherd, and Eastern.

Mr Dusko Ljubojevic, Managing Director of Raiden Resources, expressed his views on the result and commented:-

The Yandicoogina Mining Centre has record gold production of 227.3 kg of gold at an average grade of 58.2g/t Au. Gold mineralisation is observed in quartz veins in chlorite-carbonate altered schist.

In the past, the tenement has undergone geological and geophysical surveys, including the sampling program, surface and airborne survey and very limited drilling at the historical mining centre.
