The program comprised 42 drill holes for 2,448 metres and demonstrate the occurrence of a mineralised zone with mineable widths of high-grade gold over a strike length of around 400 metres.
Only a few holes did not record any notable gold mineralisation.
Highlighted intersections include: 5 metres at 6.27 g/t gold from 20 metres; 4 metres at 6.70 g/t from 13 metres; 3 metres at 13.63 g/t from 37 metres; and 6 metres at 4.14 g/t from 39 metres.
Other holes produced assays of: 3 metres at 5.19 g/t from 67 metres; 8 metres at 3.23 g/t from 18 metres; and 7 metres at 2.84 g/t from 42 metres.
Ground disturbance from previous artisanal mining did not allow access to some locations, resulting in some areas targeted for infill holes remaining undrilled.
Troy will prepare a mineral resource for Larken incorporating the new results.
Larken is a shear-hosted deposit on a parallel shear to the Smarts-Hicks shear.
Mineralisation is related to the contact of sheared basalt and an iron-rich mafic unit.
Intensive quartz veining with moderate disseminated pyrite has been intersected and one drill hole has logged visible gold
