Yandal Resources Ltd (ASX:YRL) has received assay results from a 29-hole reverse circulation (RC) drill program at the Flushing Meadows prospect within the Ironstone Well Project in Western Australia.
Results confirm a oxide gold deposit with a strike length of 1.7 kilometres open in a number of directions.
Highlights from drilling includes 64 metres at 0.51 g/t gold from 40 metres, 32 metres at 0.98 g/t gold from 52 metres and 40 metres at 1.03 g/t gold from 80 metres.
A new 27-hole drill program has already commenced to infill the northern 800 metres of the deposit to 50-metre spacing along strike and test a number of extensional shallow targets.

Yandal’s managing director Lorry Hughes said: “Exploration results to date have demonstrated excellent potential to define oxide Resources over a continuous strike length of 1.7-kilometre at the Flushing Meadows prospect.
“The initial 200-metre line spaced results from aircore drilling were infilled with RC drilling.
“Mineralisation appears to be continuous and of consistent grade at the 100-metre line spacings so we will now bring the drill spacing down to 50 metres along strike.
“Our focus is on the compilation of mineralisation data required for estimation of JORC Compliant Mineral Resources.
“Completion of the infill program will also allow us to define priority targets for drill testing in the September quarter.”
