White Cliff (ASX:WCN) scales up into West Australian-Canadian exploration

White Cliff (ASX:WCN) scales up into West Australian-Canadian exploration

April 8, 2024 Off By Jack Baker

White Cliff Minerals has multiple work programs underway and ready in the slips as it looks toward a run of results from across its portfolio of Australian and Canadian exploration assets.

The Radium Point headliner in Canada’s Northwest Territories is being prepped for an extensive diamond drill campaign focused on ground truthing multiple new high-grade uranium and copper targets and undrilled areas of high-calibre historic samples.

Rock chip and channel saw sampling at the uranium-gold-copper project will begin shortly across a wider area to assist regional geological sampling and mapping ahead of drilling.

Airborne specialist Expert Geophysics has also been given more scope to find the core of iron-oxide-copper-gold hydrothermal cells at White Cliff’s Navanut Territory Coppermine asset and will fly a minimum 1200 line-kilometre survey over high-grade epithermal showings.

White Cliff Chairman Roderick McIllree said leveraging local experts had allowed the company to significantly accelerate activities for both Radium and Coppermine and undertake works otherwise unlikely until 2025.

“Being able to soon kick off a maiden drilling campaign at Radium Point after only securing the licences in the last few months is a testament to the internal expertise of the organisation,” McIllree said.

“This, coupled with the fact that these projects were organically grown, positions us perfectly to capture the entire value matrix of any discovery with the benefit of rising gold, silver, copper and uranium prices.

“Our desktop work relating to the digitisation of Radium Point and Coppermine is ongoing and continues to demonstrate incredible potential.”

McIllree added the team was anticipating results to come through to November, and that now it had advanced its Australian divestment and rationalisation program, it would look at various ways to monetise and create shareholder value.

“The remaining projects are all excellent prospects, and we look forward to executing these campaigns and updating investors in due course,” he said.

And closer to home, up to 2000 metres of reverse circulation drilling is underway at the Perth-based explorer’s Reedy South Gold Project in Western Australia to test Reedy’s strike and depth extensions to its 42,400-ounce resource.

White Cliff soon expects a granted exploration licence for the Bentley Copper-Gold Project in the West Musgraves, and has also targeted West Australian soils and bedrock sampling campaigns underway at multimetal gold-lithium projects Lake Johnston and Diemals.
