Contessa lies within a 5 kilometre long gold anomaly overlying Archaean greenstone, within a major structural corridor, on the southern margin of the Marymia Inlier. A staged drilling programme will test three priority targets in the Contessa area, the Gidgee Flats auger gold anomaly and extend regional geochemical drill sampling over areas of the prospective Archaean sequence concealed beneath cover (Figure 1 and see Lodestar’s ASX announcement dated 9 September 2014). 
At Contessa, RC drilling will target primary gold mineralisation below the supergene mineralisation intersected in first‐pass aircore drilling.

PROJECTS Peak Hill – Doolgunna: Base metals, gold Southwest of current Contessa drilling, in an area where numerous nuggets have been recovered and Northeast of current Contessa drilling, targeting a 900 metre zone within the auger gold anomaly (defined as >9ppb gold with a maximum of 80ppb gold in a 6 metre composite sample). 
Aircore drilling will test the 500 metre long Gidgee Flats auger gold anomaly (defined as >9ppb gold with a maximum of 275ppb gold in a 5 metre composite sample). In total, the program of aircore drilling comprises 45 holes for 3600 metres on 11 traverses and RC drilling comprises 5 holes on four sections for 1200 metres. First assay results from the drilling are expected to be available in early December. Bill Clayton Managing Director 1
