The drilling program was designed to define the geometry of Target 4 with 19 holes testing Target 4 and three initial holes testing the new Target 5.

Alliance managing director Steve Johnston said: “These latest results from drilling at Targets 4 and 5 indicate very robust gold intercepts.

“They reinforce our view of Weednanna as a growing high-grade gold system that we are continuing to progress successfully with each round of drilling.”

The mineralisation is open down dip in the east on most sections and/or down plunge to the south.

Further RC drilling is planned in 2018 to define the limits of gold mineralisation at Targets 4 and 5 and to test new target areas.

Tyranna has a 32.65% interest in the joint venture with Alliance holding the remainder.

Weednanna is the most advanced gold prospect at the Wilcherry joint venture and close-spaced drilling is required for more accurate definition.
