Drilling Update For the Prairie Downs Project
Drilling Update For the Prairie Downs Project
Sydney, April 19, 2012 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Dynasty Metals Australia Limited (ASX:DMA) - A drilling program to target buried CID systems in the southern part of the Prairie Downs project (refer Fig 1 on page 2) has commenced following delays due to weather and heritage clearance issues. The program was originally planned to continue on from the exploration drilling targeting potential direct shipping iron ore (DSO) hosting stratigraphy in the northern part of the Project.

The drilling is designed to test the extensive alluvial plains which may cover buried CID material which were found by Warwick Resources Ltd (now part of Atlas Iron Ltd (ASX:AGO)) The CID may have been sourced from Hamersley Basins sediments just to the north of the tenements. The drilling is designed to be on a wide spacing along over 20 kilometres line length to determine the potential of the alluvial plains to host iron mineralisation. There are several copper occurrences in the region and the drilling will also be used to evaluate this potential.

The Program is expected to be completed in May 2012 and assay results will be released once available.
