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.
