Assays of rock samples have identified significant gold and copper mineralisation with gold assays up to 6.7 g/t gold and copper assays up to 7.8% copper.
Mapping also identified multiple new shear zones.
The sampling confirms that the scale of the Aucu gold and copper system extends over at least 8 kilometres west to east and is still untested to the south.
Bulk samples to be submitted to lab
Heavy winter snows have delayed drilling on the main targets and the company has focused on testing gold potential in the main valley.
13 bulk samples have been collected which will be submitted to the lab for analysis shortly.
