Baru Gold Corp it has now approved the budget, signed the drilling contract, and embarked on a 25 000-m drilling programme.
This resource development programme will incorporate the use of a track mounted reverse circulation (RC) drilling rig and is expected to take 12 months to complete. The company has selected Indodrill of Bogor, Indonesia, as the drilling contractor to complete the work.
The initial area targeted for this drilling is covered in the Sangihe 2010 NI 43-101 report which identified 835 000 oz of gold as an inferred resource between Binebase and Bawone villages over approximately 1.2 km. An infill drilling programme will be conducted in this area to upgrade some of the inferred resources into indicated and measured resource status.
Thereafter, exploration drilling will continue over an additional 1.45 km from Bawone to South of Salurang village following the continuation of this geochemical anomaly. Once the initial exploration drilling in this area has been completed, the identified resources will then be infill drilled to bring some of these resources into indicated and measured status as well.
Terry Filbert, Chairman and CEO of Baru Gold, commented: “With a pre-feasibility in progress and mine construction commencing soon, the company’s activities will ramp up now that we are moving past the latest wave of pandemic and administration delays. This drilling programme plan will prove up and add ounces, and exploration upside, to the Sangihe area which has only seen 10% of the land package of 42 000 ha. explored and sampled with modern techniques.”
