Rimfire’s CEO John Kaminsky said: “This gravity survey is a logical next step to further leverage the invaluable mapping and sampling work to date in this highly prospective and emerging Southern Ordovician Volcanics area, which was previously unrecognised.

“The gravity survey will provide an important extra layer of data to help guide our subsequent drilling in the gravity surveyed areas.

“Close space gravity previously used by the company provided an excellent correlation to the spatial position of the Sorpresa gold and silver discovery.

"On a larger district scale, anomalous gravity lows coincident with magnetic highs have been representative geophysical signatures of deposits at Cowal and Northparkes.

“Variations on these deposit themes are possible at Fifield, given the geological and geochemistry setting, with gravity providing further insights.”
