Great Western Exploration Ltd - Great Western Exploration completes drilling, gold assays pending
Drilling is targeting prospects located along a 9-kilometre long gold trend

Great Western Exploration Ltd (ASX:GTE) has completed its 10-hole reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at its Yandal West Gold Project in Western Australia.

The program saw 1,024 metres drilled across three prospects, May Queen, Harris Find, and Ives Find, that all are located on a 9-kilometre gold trend.

This drilling program was following up exploration that had identified gold including past drilling at May Queen that intersected 3 metres at 5.01 g/t gold.

Results pending for two drill programs

Drill samples are now at the lab for assaying with the first results expected in three to five weeks.

Notably, there are also results pending from earlier drilling completed in mid-July 2019 at the Ives Find prospect.

Shearing and alteration intersected at May Queen

Of this 10-hole program, three holes were completed at May Queen, two holes at Harris Find, and five holes at Ives Find.

The only preliminary comments related to the drilling were that drilling at May Queen intersected some shearing and alteration within the mafic volcanic unit.

This mafic unit is along strike from the 3 metres at 5.01 g/t historical intersection and co-incident with the magnetic unit target.
