Newly discovered 4-metre wide outcropping mineralised zone

White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX:WCN) is continuing its gold discovery streak at its 90%-owned Aucu Gold Deposit in north-west Kyrgyz Republic.

The new zone, which was identified in a bulldozer cut while clearing a drill pad, consists of quartz veining within a halo of strongly altered sandstone containing quartz, goethite, sericite and manganese oxides.

This is typical of the high-grade mineralisation seen elsewhere within the Aucu Gold Deposit.

Channel sampling of this zone has identified: 3 metres at 24.8 g/t gold; and 4 metres at 6.5 g/t gold on the two road cuttings.

In addition, a rock chip sample of the same structure taken at the top of the hill had a grade of 23 g/t gold.

The Eastern Gold Zone now consists of four sub-parallel shear zones all containing significant gold mineralisation that will be tested via drilling over a strike length of 150 metres.

Once drilling has confirmed the orientation of the structures, further drilling will be conducted to convert the gold mineralisation into a JORC compliant resource.
