Shallow aircore drilling has intersected broad zones of high-grade gold outside the Mineral Resource on the Western Flank of Turnberry (610,000oz @ 1.7g/t Au), part of the Murchison Gold Project, results include:

  • 32m @ 3.09g/t Au from 32m including 20m @ 4.53g/t Au (22TBAC011)
  • 12m @ 3.80g/t Au from 52m including 4m @ 10.70g/t Au (22TBAC015)
  • 48m @ 0.91g/t Au from 12m including 24m @ 1.37g/t Au (22TBAC010)
  • 8m @ 1.77g/t Au from 48m including 4m @ 3.18g/t Au (22TBAC020)
  • 24m @ 0.58g/t Au from 40m including 4m @ 1.15g/t Au (22TBAC012)
  • 4m @ 1.77g/t Au from 40m (22TBAC008)
  • 1m @ 3.72g/t Au from 88m (22TBAC016) – hole ended in mineralisation

Meeka’s Managing Director Tim Davidson commented on the results: “These intersections highlight the growth opportunity we see at our Murchison Gold Project. Drilling on Turnberry’s Western Flank, outside the Mineral Resource, continues to deliver exceptional results and the mineralisation remains open along strike and at depth. Preparations are underway for further drilling to expand the footprint of these shallow, high-grade lodes following the drilling currently in progress at St Anne’s. Shallow, high-grade oxide mineralisation added to the Mineral Resource through this drilling will have a meaningful impact on the robust outcomes of our December 2021 Scoping Study and will be included in the upcoming Pre-feasibility Study.”
