Drilling has discovered three new gold-in-bedrock anomalies known as T2a, T2b and T2c ranging from 1.0 to 3.5 kilometres in strike length.
T2a is a 2.3x0.2 kilometre gold-in-bedrock anomaly, T2b is a 3.5x0.3 kilometre gold-in-bedrock anomaly, T2c is a 1.0x0.2 kilometre gold-in-bedrock anomaly and T2d will be drilled next quarter.
A total of 213 holes for 3,539 metres on a 400x80 metre grid were drilled at the T2 prospect, which is part of the overall 26,000-metre aircore program testing the T8, T6, T2 and T1 prospects.
Arrow’s managing director Steven Michael said: “The first-pass aircore drilling program at the T8, T6 and T2 prospects has identified six bedrock gold anomalies, ranging in length from 1.0 kilometre to 3.5 kilometres, with results from drilling at T1 expected in August.
“Several of the bedrock anomalies remain open along strike.
“In addition to confirming bedrock gold mineralisation, the drill program has intersected key geological structures which are believed to control mineralisation at a local (prospect) scale and regional (project) scale.
“This greater geological understanding will contribute greatly to the next phase of drilling, which will commence in 3Q 2018.”
Drilling complete at T1, assays pending
A total of 412 holes were drilled for 5,254 metres targeting the T1a and T1b gold-in-soil anomalies.
All samples have been delivered to the lab with results expected in August 2018.
