Rincon Resources unveil new drill targets at West Arunta Project

17 June 2024 13:20

Rincon Resources (ASX:RCR) have announced the results from a recent geophysical survey at the Pokali Prospect, part of the West Arunta Project in Western Australia. The dipole-dipole induced polarisation (DDIP) survey has revealed a significant 2.7 km long IP chargeability trend (DDIP Trend).

Three priority targets

Inverted 3D-modelling has highlighted three high-priority zones, DDIP01, DDIP02, and DDIP03. These zones present new, high-priority targets for iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) mineralisation, with historic RC drill holes (PKC004 and PKC005) between DDIP02 and DDIP03 showing promising copper results.

The historic drilling results included 6m @ 1.01% Cu from 124m and 6m @ 0.89% Cu from 156m. Planning for a RC drill program is underway to test these new targets (DDIP01, DDIP02, and DDIP03) directly.

Management comments

Rincon’s Managing Director Gary Harvey said “Not only has the DDIP survey highlighted a promising new chargeability trend, the three discrete chargeability highs, DDIP01, DDIP02, and DDIP03 along this trend have never been directly tested.

“Historic drilling intersected high-grade copper mineralisation directly in the middle of targets DDIP02 and DDIP03, which provides a high level of confidence that direct testing of these strong IP chargeability targets will intersect high-grade copper sulphide mineralisation.”

Next steps

Three more infill DDIP survey lines are planned to refine the trend and potentially extend it westward along with a survey line over the Surprise gravity anomaly, boasting a surface area of about 1.5 km long by 700m in width.
