Impact Minerals Ltd (ASX:IPT) has identified new drill targets 1.5 kilometres from the Commonwealth – Silica Hill area in the Commonwealth Project in New South Wales.

The targets are along the Welcome Jack Trend and will be tested as part of the upcoming drill program.

The upcoming program will also follow up high-grade gold and silver results recently returned from the Silica Hill Prospect.

New drill and rock chip assays together with an interpretation of ground gravity data were used to identify the new drill targets along the Welcome Jack Trend.

The drill program should commence by late June subject to approvals.

Welcome Jack Trend could be part of one very large system

Exploration in 2017 uncovered the Silica Hill gold-silver system, which continues to be an emerging discovery.

Notably, Impact believes the entire Commonwealth - Silica Hill – Welcome Jack Trend is part of one very large system covering at least 5 square kilometres in area.

Large areas of this system remain untested by drilling and it is evident that there is significant exploration upside in the area.

The 100%-owned Commonwealth Project comprises 315 square kilometres of exploration licences 100 kilometres north of Orange. 

The belt is host to many major gold-silver-copper mines including the Cadia-Ridgeway deposits that contain at least 25 million ounces of gold and 5 million tonnes of copper.

Drilling results delivered to date have indicated the large scale and high-grade nature of the emerging Silica Hill gold-silver system.
