(MENAFN - ProactiveInvestors - Australia) Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) has kicked off an extensive 10,000 metre air-core drilling program at the company's Dexter Gold Project in Western Australia, targeting an 18 kilometre long series of gold-in-soil anomalies.

The program will be completed before the end of the year, with results to start coming through in January 2013.

Breaker is aiming to define the scope of the inferred gold system with the program to be followed up with aircore, reverse circulation and diamond drilling.

The anomalies were recently identified in the southern part of the Burtville and Yamarna Terranes, which are located around 80 kilometres from AngloGold Ashanti (ASX: AGG) and Independence Group's (ASX: IGO) plus-6 million ounce Tropicana gold deposit.

Dexter is located 140 kilometres south-east of Laverton, with the project largely unexplored.


Geometry of targets

Breaker said that the geometry of the targeted gold-in-soil anomalies is consistent with a series of stacked fault bends (en-echelon jogs) in a broad zone of dilation between the Dexter and Yamarna Shears.

Planned drilling at the Three Bears Prospect, which consists of three separate (40 ppb) gold-in-soil anomalies up to 2 kilometre long (peak soil values of 298 ppb gold and 17,415 ppb silver), will initially be conducted on a line spacing of 400 metres with holes 80 metres apart along section.

Once this drilling is completed, the drill spacing will be closed on selected targets.

Drilling at the Tallows Prospect targets a series of 40 ppb gold-in-soil anomalies that extend over a 12 kilometre strike length (peak soil value of 130 ppb gold) in the footwall and hanging wall of the Yamarna Shear.
