New assays from Crown Prince have returned up to 16.5 g/t gold

Thundelarra Ltd (ASX: THX) has received high-grade gold hits from first drilling at the Crown Prince prospect within its Garden Gully Gold Project in Western Australia.

Gold mineralisation was intersected in 11 of the 18 holes drilled for 4,535 metres with the best result being 4.0 metres at 16.5 g/t gold from 166 metres.

The drilling program supports the potential that commercial mineralisation exists at Garden Gully.

Strong results of up to 9 metres at 4.8 g/t gold from 213 metres were also received from recent drilling at the Lydia prospect.

Garden Gully covers 78 square kilometres and is near Meekatharra, a well-established and proven gold production centre in Murchison province.

Other new results from Crown Prince are 3.5 metres at 7.6 g/t from 109 metres, 2.6 metres at 7.5 g/t from 130 metres and 3.8 metres at 3.5 g/t from 220 metres.

The inaugural drilling program at the prospect comprised 10 reverse circulation holes for 2,943 metres and eight diamond holes for 1,592 metres.

Thundelarra began exploring Crown Prince about four months ago and drilling has shown the down dip/plunge extension of the Main Lode extends at least 130 metres below the lowest level of previous workings.

It has also demonstrated the presence of free gold within high grade sections at depth.

The results have validated Thundelarra’s aggressive exploration approach and justify pursuit of the Crown Prince tenement.

Thundelarra will continue to test for down-dip/plunge extensions, and possible repetitions, to the Main and the Northern lodes at the prospect, which remains open.

Aim for maiden resource estimates

It aims to compile sufficient drilling data to allow the calculation of maiden resources at Crown Prince and Lydia.

The company has completed more than 26,000 metres of drilling in 141 holes at Garden Gully since it began exploration in mid-2016.

This comprises 23,556 metres of reverse circulation and 2,522.6 metres of diamond drilling.

A number of prospects

As well as Crown Prince and Lydia, other prospects targeted in recent drilling are Crown, Battery and Transylvania.

Other prospects within Garden Gully include Ascuns, Young, Granite Well and NW Granite Well.
