Barton Gold (ASX:BGD) has completed open pit reverse circulation (RC) drilling at its Tarcoola gold project ahead of schedule but in line with expectations.

The company decided to conclude drilling early due to the anticipated onset of severe weather conditions.

Despite this, Barton drilled approximately 400 metres across eight holes, marking the end of major field operations for 2023.

“We have a high volume of pending exploration results, so we look forward to delivering a JORC resources update shortly and a fast start to 2024,” BGD Managing Director Alex Scanlon said.

The company plans to resume drilling activities in March 2024, focusing on high-priority targets within the Tarcoola Goldfield.

“We’ve completed 21,000m of RC and diamond drilling since early September, and we’ll be back out during early 2024 to complete this program and test priority Tarcoola Goldfield targets,” Mr Scanlon said.

With a strategic focus on priority targets and pending exploration results, Barton Gold anticipates a robust start to 2024.

BGD last traded at 24 cents.
