Perpetual Resources Ltd (ASX:PEC) has started preliminary field-based exploration at the Beharra Silica Sand Project in WA.

The program consists of shallow auger drilling across the southern quadrant of the project underlain by vacant crown land.

It aims to determine the raw product specifications of the sand and provide samples to conduct initial metallurgical testing to determine the final product.

“Excited” to begin drilling

Perpetual non-executive chairman Julian Babarczy said: “Within less than a week of announcing the option to acquire the Beharra high-purity silica sands project perpetual is excited to commence its initial auger drilling program.

“The drilling will test 5 kilometres of the 13-kilometre strike mapped and will provide an initial indication towards the raw product.

“Initial metallurgical testing of the samples will also be completed to understand the likely final product specifications to guide in the identification of suitable end-user markets and associated potential product pricing.”
