Indiana Resources (ASX:IDA) has identified multiple new targets to investigate at its SA Central Gawler Craton Gold Project on the back of auger calcrete test drilling results across its minimally explored 100% owned 5,713km2 acreage; including a 6.5km x 800m anomaly believed to contain gold.
That target is located at the Ealbara Prospect, one of several targets of interest spotted. The Ealbara prospect sits on the southern side of the northwest end of the Lake Labyrinth Shear Zone.
The company will move forward with further testing on the geochemical anomalies, including further drilling, upon receipt of heritage and compliance approvals.
Indiana’s share price is up 3% in mid-afternoon trades.
The auger program comprised some 900 samples and was completed during December 2021.
Indiana Resources notes that calcrete auger sampling has been the preferred method of sampling within the Gawler Craton for the last three decades.
The company adds the region was discovered by Dominion Mining Limited and Resolute Limited in a JV back in 1995.
Further southeast along the shear zone is located the Minos prospect, at which the company has concluded an RC drilling run in April. A total of fourteen drillholes were sunk for 1,868 metres.
Indiana Resources has previously discovered 38m @ 6.54 grams of gold per tonne in hole LLRC029 including 16m @ 13.12g/t from 37m.
Located nearby is the Partridge Prospect which the company also has its eye on; detailed mapping and infill auger testing will be undertaken to better define the boundaries of targeted anomalies on-site.
Partridge, too, hugs the Lake Labyrinth Shear Zone.
