A 36 METRE THICK ZONE OF SHALLOW GOLD MINERALISATION, INCLUDING 20m @ 2.3g/t gold from 64m.

Four-metre composite samples assay received for the first two RC drill holes targeting shallow gold mineralisation south of the historic Lord Nelson pit have been received, with gold mineralisation intersected in both drill holes.

Assay results include:

  • 36m @ 1.6 g/t gold from 48m (SRC183) incl. 20m @ 2.3 g/t gold from 64m
  • 4m @ 4.1 g/t gold from 112m (SRC182)

Managing Director, Matthew Bowles commented:

“These latest results from RC drilling 200m south of the Lord Nelson pit, confirm a new repeat lode of shallow gold mineralisation, up to 36 metres thick, which remains open along strike and down plunge. The mineralisation style of this new lode is the same as that of the Lord Nelson deposit and highlights the potential for a series of repeat lodes along the structural corridor that have never been systematically tested.

We see so much potential at Lord Nelson with high grade gold intersections in oxide, transitional and primary zones now extending the gold mineralisation footprint to over 870m. These results continue to highlight the presence of a large scale mineralised gold system, within the regional Edale Shear zone.”
