Aircore drilling has returned a best intersection of 12 metres at 3.27 g/t gold from 100 metres, including 4 metres at 6.37 g/t.

Nexus Minerals Ltd (ASX:NXM) has enhanced its golden future after receiving a wide high-grade gold intersection from GT6 prospect of the Pinnacles project in Western Australia’s Eastern Goldfields.

A 12-metre intersection from 100 metres returned 3.27 g/t gold, including 4 metres from 108 metres at 6.37 g/t.

The company has received initial results from a recently completed 76-hole, 4,672-metre aircore drill program which was drilled to the top of fresh rock.

Four broad spaced lines were drilled, testing a 3 kilometre by 600-metre surface auger gold anomaly.

Nexus has received 4-metre composite gold results from about 50% of the program with the remainder due this month.

Pinnacles project is largely under-explored and commences less than 5 kilometres south of, and along strike from the Carosue Dam operations.

This 4-million ounce plus mining operation, which includes the Karari underground gold mine, is owned by Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited (ASX:SAR).

During the aircore program, gold mineralisation was intersected adjacent to the major Yilgangi Fault splay regional structure, over a gravity low.

This structure is synonymous with all Carosue Dam deposits.

An auger regional geochemical sampling program has also been completed infilling three targets identified in a first pass regional auger geochemical program with results pending.

Follow-up program

A 6,000-metre follow-up aircore program covering an 800-metre by 400-metre core anomaly is expected to start at GT6 in early June.

Nexus holds 125 square kilometres of highly prospective geological terrain within a major regional structural corridor and is exploring for gold deposits.

The company also has a joint venture over the Pinnacles JV Gold Project with Saracen.

Nexus recently acquired the Wallbrook tenement package from Saracen in a transaction completed at the start of April.
