Blackheath Resources Inc. (TSXV:BHR,FWB:04B) announced results from the first drill hole to intersect the Santa Helena Breccia at the Borralha Tungsten Project in northern Portugal. Assay intervals for diamond drill hole BO-05/14 were 0.18 percent WO3 over 62 meters including 0.24 percent WO3 over 29 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
Five diamond drill holes have now been completed and one of the drill holes, located near the centre and designed to test the depth of the Santa Helena Breccia, was stopped at 200 metres. The full 200 metres started and ended within the mineralized breccia body but as yet assays have not been received. Two holes were drilled to the south of the Santa Helena Breccia and encountered a tonalitic granite zone with narrow intervals of wolframite that appear to be sub-economic.
Blackheath CEO, James Robertson, said:
We are encouraged and excited about the first drill result from the Santa Helena Breccia at Borralha. Tungsten mineralization is extensively evident over the breccia zone on surface and this initial drill result confirms it continues at depth. We look forward to further results at Borralha.
