Red Rock Australasia - License Applications Build Critical Mass


19 May 2020


Red Rock Resources Plc, the natural resource development company with interests in gold, manganese and minerals, announces an update on its joint venture subsidiary Red Rock Australasia Pty Ltd ("RRAL").

The Company through RRAL has applied for additional ground at EL007294, and EL007301, two new gold exploration license areas in the Victoria Goldfields of Australia.

Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell comments:

"With these new applications RRAL achieves its objective of building a significant position with target diversity  in its area of focus around the historic mining centre of Ballarat, and stretching up towards Avoca and Castlemaine. The area includes potential structural targets, extensions along strike of existing mines, old gold mines abandoned when they hit the water table, undrilled drill targets where previous explorers ran out of time or funding, and areas all but untouched since the nineteenth century.

Each license contains evidence of gold mineralisation and historic gold workings, with in many cases recorded production from previous alluvial mining or underground drives. At a time when the Goldfields are attracting considerable new interest after a series of discoveries and the opening up of the high grade zones at the Fosterville mine, RRAL has made a strategic decision to become a regional specialist in the Victoria Goldfields with a twin focus on bringing brownfield projects back into production and discovering new mines.

Often it is by producing that one makes discoveries."     


·    RRAL has now lodged applications for EL 007294 and EL007301, two new gold exploration license areas covering an additional 215 sq km in the Victoria Goldfields of Australia;
