Elysium Resources Limited (ASX: EYM) has completed drilling five exploration holes as part of the Lloyds Copper Mine extension program. All holes intersected multiple sulphide-bearing horizons which may prove to be lateral extensions of known ore bodies.

The Lloyds mine is part of the broader Burraga copper-gold project located in New South Wales, consisting of three contiguous exploration licenses (ELs), ( EL6463, EL7975 and EL6874) surrounding the highly prospective Burraga Granite as indicated below.

As a backdrop, the Burraga region is in the heart of the world-class Lachlan Fold Belt, which is renowned for its base and precious metal deposits such as Cadia-Ridgeway.

Although it should be noted that EYM is an early stage play and investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for their portfolio.

EYM’s ELs encompass highly productive historical mine sites, namely the Lloyds Copper Mine (19,443 tonnes grading between 3.5% and 4.1% copper) and the Lucky Draw Gold Mine (1.4 million tonnes grading 4.2 grams per tonne gold), as well as the highly prospective Isabella and Hackneys Creek gold prospects.

Lloyds indicates epithermal style system, and includes two slag dumps and a tailings resource

Mineralisation at Lloyds Copper Mine is complex, but is characterised by stacked lenses which have some characteristics of an epithermal-style system. The mine also has two existing slag dumps, totaling 90,000 tonnes grading 1.3% copper (all indicated, no cut-off) and a drill proven tailings resource of 280,000 tonnes grading 1.2% copper, once again all in the indicated category with no cut-off.

To date, drilling at Lloyds has targeted mineralised horizons based on previous models further to the east than had previously been drilled, with the company aiming to intercept mineralisation down dip as indicated below.

Core from the 2015 drilling program and exploration holes within the Lloyd’s prospect are currently undergoing sample preparation for further analysis.

EYM will undertake a 2000 metre reverse circulation drilling program to assist in establishing gold targets at Hackney’s Creek.

Similarly, a soil sampling program at the Isabella gold prospect will be undertaken over an identified prospective area in order to establish future drill targets.
