Ausmex Mining Group Ltd (ASX:AMG) has intersected further copper, gold and cobalt in a third drill hole along more than 1,500 metres of strike length of an iron-oxide copper gold (IOCG) target within the Evening Star project in Queensland.

The latest hole intersected 51 metres at 1.21% copper, 0.7 g/t gold and 295ppm cobalt from 0 metres with an additional 4.5 metre of assays outstanding.

Other notable intersections along the target include:

  • A combined 67 metres at 1.33% copper and 0.47 g/t gold; and
  • 29 metres at 0.90% copper and 0.35 g/t from 59.5 metres.

The IOCG target was previously identified as a conductive structure but was recently described by Emeritus Professor Ken Collerson as a “potential porphyry”.

At Drillers Hut, about 500 metres to the east from the Evening Star drill hole, Ausmex previously discovered a 12-metre wide sub-surface quartz outcrop that returned 12, 1-metre sample assays up to 32.7% copper and 33.4 g/t gold.

Several shallow holes RC drill holes also intersected high grade copper, gold and cobalt.

A deep diamond core drill hole will be drilled into this area, which is also within the strike zone of the IOCG target.

Drilling is also continuing at the Mt Freda Complex and the Golden Mile with the company continuing to focus on defining a large mineral estimate suitable for a high-grade gold bulk mining operation.
