The project is in the Yandal Gold Belt which hosts multiple multi-million ounce gold deposits

Great Western Exploration Ltd (ASX:GTE) has received results from 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.

Three holes were completed at May Queen, two holes at Harris Find, and five holes at Ives Find.

Highlights include 3 metres at 15.02 g/t gold from 51 metres, 2 metres at 5.87 g/t gold from 74 metres and 4 metres at 2.51 g/t gold from 20 metres.

Gold-bearing shear zones draw interest

Great Western has identified three large gold shears in drilling to date: May Queen (6.5-kilometre strike), Harris Find (8.5-kilometre strike) and Ives Find (6.5-kilometre strike).

All three shear zones contain high-grade gold mineralisation and strong alteration and the scale of these shear zones indicates they are large gold fluid pathways.

Notably, visible gold was observed within the Harris Find and May Queen shear zones.

Drilling next month at Harris Find

The next round of drilling to commence next month will focus on the high priority Harris Find shear zone located within the May Queen prospect.

It will be designed to extend the strike of the known gold mineralisation and demonstrate its potential scale.
