Miramar Resources Limited (ASX: M2R) Discovery at Gidji, Bangemall and Whaleshark

Rooster Talk Episode 52 with Allan Kelly, Executive Chair of Miramar Resources Limited (ASX: M2R) is a great revelation of how investors should look at projects, and how companies do mineral exploration.

Exciting times are coming for Miramar as they are slowly revealing the potential jewels in their project portfolio. The consistent drilling results coming out of the Gidji project are showing signs of a slow development that is turning out to become a valued proposition.

As exploration continues, Allan believes that the Gidji project is a new mineral camp with a vast array of geological formations and mineralising tectonic settings.

The recent geophysical results from the Mt Vernon project in the Bangemall is creating a lot of opportunities for Miramar. The company has now new targets being generated which they will interpret and start more surveys to vector drill targets.

The third major project that is now looking at unlocking its secret is the Whaleshark project. In this Rooster Talk, Allan gives us an in-depth discussion of all these topics.

I believe that the Gidji project is now a new mineral camp that sits between Kalgoorlie and Paddington.
