Okapi’s legacy Enmore Gold Project in New South Wales lies in the New England Fold Belt near the operating Hillgrove Gold Mine (ASX:RVR) which has produced over 730,000oz of gold.
There is significant exploration potential at Enmore, with 36 identified mineral occurrences – the majority of which are untested by deep drilling, modern geophysics or other targeting methods applied across the project. The mineralisation at Enmore generally comprises structurally controlled orogenic style gold (± antimony) mineralisation.
Okapi completed ten Reverse Circulation (RC) drillholes for 1,257m during 2021 across Sunnyside and Bora Prospects. Assay results returned significant gold values from all 10 drillholes and lead to a 1,800m diamond drilling campaign in 2022. The company announced that the results from the first two drillholes OKDD001 and OKDD002 returned significant, high grade gold intervals. The mineralisation true widths in the two diamond drill holes are estimated to be approximately 60% of the down hole interval length.
In June 2022, the company announced the start of a diamond drilling program at Enmore. The primary objective was to follow up RC drilling at the Sunnyside East prospect with a diamond drilling program which remains open at depth and along strike.
Historic exploration at Enmore has largely focussed on the potential for locating and developing open-cut resources.
