Surefire Resources is eyeing a rapid return to drilling at its Yidby Road gold prospect in WA, following recent outstanding results from the discovery which included an imposing 56 metres at 1.97 grams per tonne gold from only 44m down-hole. The company is currently putting the finishing touches on a second 40-hole, 6,000m drilling campaign which will test the down-dip and down-plunge extensions to the discovery and will look to further define the high-grade gold mineralisation at depth.
The drilling at Yidby Road has previously delineated a wealth of shallow gold intercepts associated with an intrusive porphyry unit. Intersections from the campaign completed in late 2020 included an impressive 40m at 3.01 g/t gold, hosting 4m at 26.57 g/t gold from only 24m and 36m at 1.51 g/t gold, hosting 5m at 5.86 g/t gold from 32m down-hole.
