BCI Minerals Limited announced that it has entered into a drilling contract with Core Drilling Services Pty Ltd for an upcoming major drilling program at the Kumina Tenements, a component of the Buckland Iron Ore Project. The Kumina Tenements comprise 480km2 and were acquired from Mineralogy Pty Ltd in September 2017. The drilling program plans to test targets E and J, where BCI has identified high grade outcropping bedded iron deposit mineralisation. Rock chip sampling at these target areas returned grades of greater than 62% Fe from the majority of results and best results of up to 67% Fe.1 Channel iron deposit targets B and C will also be included in the programme. The locations of targets B, C, E and J are shown in the Appendix.

Approximately 300 reverse circulation drill holes are planned for a total of approximately 14,500m, with drilling expected to commence in late-March 2018 following receipt of relevant approvals and continue for approximately three months.

Mr Alwyn Vorster MD of BCI said that “We are pleased to commence this important drilling programme at Kumina. Discovery of meaningful tonnages of higher grade bedded mineralisation has the potential to reshape the overall Buckland Iron Ore Project and its target product mix.”
