Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) has received another batch of high-grade results from its ongoing drill program at its Abra Base Metals Project in Western Australia.

Assays from the latest 14 drill holes feature 32.7 metres at 10.0% lead and 25 g/t silver, 18.3 metres at 12.6% lead and 75 g/t silver including 4.3 metres at 25.2% lead and 174 g/t silver.

Notably, the highest ever silver result was recorded with 8 metres at 516 g/t silver, and zinc and copper has been intersected with 1.1 metres at 2.3% copper and 5.1 metres at 5.5% zinc.

The results continue to improve the geological confidence in the upper north-western section of the JORC resource, which is in the Inferred category.

Galena’s managing director Alex Molyneux said: “These are strong high-grade results.

“Overall we’re very happy with what we’re seeing from this 2019 project development drilling.

“It’s absolutely confirming what we want to see in terms of grades and thicknesses in the upper northwestern section of the deposit.”

He added: “We continue to see some interesting copper and zinc results coming through as well, highlighting the potential for more work to be done on establishing non-lead-silver domains at Abra.”

The drill results received to date continue to highlight the potential to improve the geological confidence of the Abra JORC resource.

Drilling aims to convert a large portion of the northwestern mineralised zone into the higher confidence Indicated resource category.

This is important for improving the confidence in the upper part of the orebody which will be developed first in a top-down mining sequence.
