Drilling by Rumble Resources at the Nemesis project

Rumble Resources Ltd (ASX:RTR) has started reverse circulation (RC) drilling below the historical Nemesis Gold Mine, north of Cue in Western Australia.

No historic drilling has tested the depth extension of the mine, which between 1900 and 1910 produced 7,157 ounces of gold from 2,276 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 98 g/t.

In 1909, 1,618 ounces of gold were produced from 201 tonnes at 250 g/t gold.

Targeting soil anomalism and small-scale workings

Both east and west along strike from the mine, RC drilling will target areas of historical elevated gold in soil anomalism and known small-scale workings associated with the Nemesis shear zone.

The shear zone extends under a laterite plateau to the east and has not been drill tested, while the gold in soil anomalism has not been tested to the west.

Untested plunging mineralisation

The historical workings at Nemesis have been mined to a maximum depth of 70 metres with three steep plunging high-grade gold shoots over a strike length of 60 metres.

The shoots are inferred to be stacked and the plunge of the stacking is moderate to the east.

Historic RC drilling along strike to the east had a maximum vertical depth of only 35 metres and did not test the plunging mineralisation.

Rumble will target the depth extension of the main high-grade gold zone with up to three RC drill holes.
