Assays of up to 110 g/t gold over 0.42 metres from 418.7 metres have been returned from the first five holes of a nine-hole diamond drilling program.
The company aims to complete an update to the existing Rothsay 307,000 ounce resource at 10.8 g/t gold early in 2018.
Other results include 0.55 metres at 96.97 g/t gold from 328.7 metres, 1.97 metres at 20.4 g/t from 247.5 metres and 0.40 metres at 12.2 g/t from 239.7 metres.
The holes have targeted southern portions of the Woodley’s and Woodley’s East Shear resource with remaining results expected in January.
Diamond drilling to test the Clyde and Miners Shears targets is underway.
It will be the first regional exploration drilling at depth of any substance in the history of Rothsay.
A reverse circulation program is also being carried out designed to extend the Woodley’s northern extension and to infill and extend the Woodley’s East Shear resource.
