Survey work at Ballymore Resources’ Ruddygore prospect in North Queensland has confirmed a large copper target beneath extensive shallow workings in the historical mining area.

Ballymore engaged Australian Geophysical Services to complete the Induced Polarisation (IP) geophysics survey program at the Ruddygore project, near Chillagoe.

The company said seven lines of IP geophysical data were collected over the Ruddygore alteration system and associated soil anomaly in October.

Modelling of the data has defined a strong IP chargeability anomaly around the historical Ruddygore copper mine.

Ruddygore was mined from 1896 to 1909. It yielded 1450 tonnes of copper from 32,750 tonnes of handpicked ore at a grade of 3.9 per cent copper and 56 g/t silver.

Despite the mining activity, Ballymore said previous drilling at Ruddygore had been limited to 26 shallow holes for 1631m, with most holes being less than 50m deep.

Geological mapping of the area by Ballymore in 2020 identified a large circular zone of extensive hydrothermal alteration, including over the former Ruddygore and Black Cockatoo mines and numerous smaller workings.

This was followed by soil sampling and an airborne magnetic survey completed over the Ruddygore area by Ballymore Resources this year.

The recent IP survey has now delineated a chargeability anomaly in the same area and Ballymore is preparing to drill test what it describes as a significant copper target.

The Ruddygore project covers an area of 558sq km. In addition to Ruddygore, a number of significant historical mines occur within the project area, including Maniopota and Torpy’s Crooked Creek.
