Robust Resources (ASX: ROL) has intersected 54% base metals (copper, lead and zinc) over 2 metres within zones of 33 metres at 6.3% base metals in Indonesia.
All five drillholes from the Purple Heart Prospect on Romang Island (77.5% interest) in Indonesia intersected potentially economic mineralisation.
This mineralisation is predominantly oxide and transition zone and is likely to be exploited in the planned heap-leach gold mine which is expected to be the first operating project to be established on Romang Island.
This phase of drilling produced positive results for all 19 drillholes from the Purple Heart and Batu Perak Prospects. Drilling continues with seven rigs currently operating on Romang Island.
The Romang Island Projects have an interim Indicated and Inferred JORC mineral resource estimate of 592 thousand ounces of gold, 27.7 million ounces of silver, 95 million pounds of copper, 697 million pounds of lead and 678 million pounds of zinc.
The Company will release an announcement in the coming weeks regarding the proposed Kyrgyz Republic investment.
At 31 March 2013, the Company had $22.6 million in cash.
