Notably, visible gold was detected in 62 samples out of the 65 samples collected

White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX:WCN) has identified visible gold in bulk samples collected in December 2018 from its Aucu Gold Project in the Kyrgyz Republic.

The company undertook a bulk sampling program along a 450-metre section of the Chanach river alluvial terraces located 1 kilometre downstream from the Aucu Gold deposit.

The objective of the sampling program was to assess the placer gold potential of the 16-kilometre long river system.

Visible gold was detected in 62 samples out of the 65 samples collected.

The samples collected have been submitted to the lab for analysis with results expected in late February.

Shares are up 37.5% to 2.2 cents intra-day.

The project also contains 17.2 million tonnes at 0.36% copper containing 64,000 tonnes of copper.

The drilling defining these resources has tested less than 5% of the identified mineralised structures and is currently open in all directions.
