Lodestar Minerals’ (LSR) follow-up soil sampling has “confirmed” two gold targets at its Coolgardie West project in Western Australia.

The company said the infill, multi-element soil geochemical work upgraded and reinforced two significant gold-in-soil anomalies, which were described as priority drill targets.

The northern target is located 1.5 kilometres along strike from the greenstone pinch-out and the western target lies 2.4km north-west of and parallel to the greenstone.

Lodestar said both targets are associated with north-east trending shear zones and occur in areas of soil cover that have not seen any drilling.

The follow-up soil sampling was designed to infill gold anomalies outlined by the company’s first-pass ultrafine soil sampling program and extend the sampling coverage across most of the tenement area.

Meanwhile, the company said assay results from follow-up sampling of the greenstone-hosted pegmatite lithium target at Coolgardie West were pending.

Once received, Lodestar said a first-pass drilling program will be planned to test the gold and lithium targets.

LSR shares were up 7.14 per cent to 1.5 cents at 10:48 am AEST.
