Strategic Minerals Plc (LON:SML) has started drilling to expand the resource at Leigh Creek in South Australia.

John Peters, Strategic Mineral’s managing director, said it is the first exploration to be undertaken at the former copper mine for forty years.

Drilling will comprise 10 holes over 500m to look for potential repeat copper oxide deposits at the Lyndhurst Project comprising two unmined copper oxide deposits, Lynda and Lorna Doone, 500m apart.

Two holes will also test for mineralisation below the Rosmann East pit adjacent to the Mountain of Light plant.

Strategic acquired the former copper mine in March and up to this point has concentrated on metallurgical work to ascertain the best recovery method and tests on the heap leach pads at Mountain of Light.

 “Exploring for a new deposit at the Lyndhurst Project and for potential copper sulphides below an existing oxide deposit both have the potential, if successful, to create new development options for LCCM,” Peters added.
