Boda and Kaiser 

The Boda and Kaiser prospects are located within Alkane’s Northern Molong Porphyry Project, located in central western NSW. Together, they comprise our Kaiser-Boda exploration target* (5km long, 1km wide corridor).

In September 2019, Alkane announced the assay results of the Boda “discovery hole” KSDD003 (502m @ 0.48g/t Au, 0.20% Cu from 211m), which indicated an increase in thickness and grade of porphyry gold-copper mineralisation at depth.

Since the discovery hole, we have continued extensive drilling and geophysical surveys at Boda and surrounds (Boda 2 and Kaiser) to test the size and shape of the mineralisation:

  • Phase 1 drill program (commenced November 2019) – five additional diamond holes confirmed the discovery of significant high-grade gold and copper mineralisation
  • IP geophysical survey – identified anomalies that suggested porphyry systems
  • Phase 2 drill program (commenced July 2020) – RC and diamond holes totalling 30,000m to test the controls and dimensions to the high-grade zone and extensions to the large low-grade mineralised envelope.
Alkane’s MD Nic Earner and Technical Director explain the Boda prosepct

We are still in the early stages of defining the system, but the results of our drill programs are extremely encouraging. They confirm the presence of a very large mineralised corridor of up to 5km in length.

At Boda the mineralisation has been defined over a 400m wide by 1km long area, which is open to the north, south and at depth, making Boda a genuine prospect for a large tonnage gold-copper alkalic porphyry development.

*Kaiser-Boda target: 5km long, 1km wide corridor of monzonite intrusives, extensive propylitic to potassic alteration with gold and copper mineralisation. Numerous intercepts at Kaiser with a small high-grade historically mined body.

    High Grade Zones Intersected at Boda by Revised Drilling Orientation

    Alkane announces intersection of further high-grade mineralisation at the Boda Prospect in Central New South Wales. Reinterpretation of geology undertaken as drilling progressed at Boda suggested a northwest structural trend. One diamond core hole, KSDD028, was designed to intersect perpendicular to this northwest structural trend and the high-grade breccia identified by KSDD007 to further define […]
