The results delivered bonanza grade gold, and importantly width.
Highlights from the resource definition/extensional diamond drilling include: 18.1 metres at 65.3g/t gold and 0.4% copper, and reveal a potential new zone of mineralisation.
Doray will need to complete more follow up work to determine if this intersection is a completely new parallel lode or an offset position of the Western Lode.
Either way with these widths and grades the company will look to mine it.
