Notably, drilling at Crusader will be following up previous results which included 27 metres at 3.18 g/t gold from 61 metres, 35 metres at 2.85 g/t gold from 25 metres and 29 metres at 2.85 g/t gold from 30 metres.
The Crusader resource represents only a small section of the 5+ kilometre long mineralised corridor.
Gold seems to associated with stockwork
The mineralisation intersected in prior drill programs is closely associated with a quartz-goethite supergene stockwork in the oxide regolith profile.
Nexus has noted that the stockwork intensity correlates closely with higher gold grades.
The completed gravity survey and high-resolution ground magnetic survey has been used to design the drill hole locations.
