Meteoric recently started evaluating the high-grade resources at the Querosene and Dona Maria deposits within the Jurena Gold Project.

Notably, the Dona Maria and Querosene deposits have a combined resource of 436,000 tonnes at 14.7 g/t for 205,000 gold ounces.

Meteoric managing director Dr Andrew Tunks said: “It’s full steam ahead for the Brazilian Gold projects as we are currently finalising planning of our first drilling program to commence at Juruena in Q2.

“Our operations manager Peter Sheehan and myself will be travelling to Brazil in the coming weeks to work alongside the Brazilian technical team and our exploration management group, Target Latin America, to commence resource definition and extension drilling at the two most advanced targets, Dona Maria and Querosene which contain a combined high-grade JORC 2012 mineral resource estimate of 436,000 tonnes at 14.7 g/t for 205,000oz gold.”
