Lincoln Starts Drilling at Koppio, Kookaburra Gully Graphite Deposits

Lincoln Minerals Ltd. (ASX:LML) announced that it has begun an aircore drilling program at its South Australia-based Koppio and Kookaburra Gully graphite deposits.

As quoted in the press release:

Lincoln Minerals has been granted Exploration Work Approvals by the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE) to undertake drilling and trenching at Kookaburra Gully and to undertake a drilling program at the historic Koppio Graphite Mine. Drilling is scheduled to be completed in about 2 weeks.

The first stage of that program will be geotechnical drilling at Kookaburra Gully to test fractures and stratigraphic horizons in the basement and possible extensions to the known mineralisation.

This will be followed by reconnaissance and resource definition drilling at and along strike from the historic Koppio Graphite Mine. Historic mine records and a single drillhole from 1945 have outlined high grade mineralisation up to 33.2% graphitic carbon within and immediately below the mine workings over a strike length of 55m and to a depth of 50m below ground level.
