Techdrill supplies rigs for Dart

Australia-based Techdrill Services is providing rigs and services to Dart Mining’s Unicorn molybdenum project in Victoria.

Dart began a resource upgrade drilling programme at the Unicorn site at the end of March. The phase 1 reverse circulation programme involved drilling 15 holes to enable the current JORC indicated resource to be upgraded into the measured category.

Under the programme, the southern margin of the mineralisation – forming the high wall of any potential future open pit – will be tested for the first time to determine the optimal pit size and allow for a significant increase in resource tonnes.

The southern mineralised breccia, sediments and rhyolite surrounding the Unicorn porphyry will be tested under the resource upgrade drilling.
The drill holes will be used for phase 2 diamond tail drilling as pre-collars for the planned holes to 450m and deeper.

A significant induced polarisation (IP) anomaly on the northwestern slope of the Unicorn deposit will also be tested as part of the drilling programme.

Dart Mining managing director Lindsay Ward said: “The IP anomaly represents a great opportunity to better understand the proven cluster nature of Climax-style porphyry’s like Unicorn.”

Techdrill operates five state of the art rigs, two of which are multi-purpose and three are dedicated diamond rigs.
