Ora Gold Ltd (ASX:OAU) completed the acquisition of the Abbotts ground on December 21 2018, significantly expanding the size and prospectivity of its Garden Gully gold project in Western Australia.

As part of the purchase, Ora Gold obtained all the previous owner’s exploration data.

A detailed desktop review of these data, together with all the information available in the public domain in the form of reports lodged by previous explorers, shows a number of locations where historical drilling returned significant gold intersections.

Garden Gully Project: areas of potential interest

Further exploration in and around the areas that returned these high-grade results will form part of the next stages of exploration at Garden Gully as Ora seeks to identify and define mineralisation suitable for small scale mining and treatment, in accordance with the company’s change in development strategy.
