Yandal Resources serves up 190,000 ounce initial gold resource at Flushing Meadows

Drilling on the 20-kilometre Barwidgee Shear Zone trend that includes Flushing Meadows is only a small part of the exploration potential on Yandal’s under-explored Yandal Greenstone Belt projects.

Yandal Resources Ltd - Yandal Resources records mineral resource estimate for Flushing Meadows Gold deposit at Ironstone Well
A total of 149,000 ounces is classified as laterite, oxide and transitional material which has the potential for low mining and processing costs

Yandal Resources Ltd (ASX:YRL) has recorded an initial gold mineral resource estimate of 190,000 ounces at the Flushing Meadows deposit within the Ironstone Well Gold Project near Wiluna in Western Australia.

The prospect occurs within the regionally extensive Barwidgee Shear Zone and is 60 kilometres southwest of Wiluna near other gold development projects and operating mines.

Flushing Meadows hosts 4.6 million tonnes at 1.29 g/t gold for 190,000 ounces and the resource is based on 3,494 sample intervals from 298 historical and recent reverse circulation (RC) holes as well as four historical diamond holes.

The estimate contains a higher-grade component of 2.8 million tonnes at 1.63 g/t gold for 147,000 ounces with numerous mineralisation envelopes open at depth.

Shares are up almost 4% today to 28 cents after reaching a new 12-month high of 30 cents on Monday.

“First significant milestone”

Managing director Lorry Hughes said: “Completion of the initial resource is the first significant milestone for the company and bodes well for the definition of additional resources at our other advanced prospects including Oblique along strike to the northwest, Quarter Moon to the west and Success at Mt McClure project to the south.

“The majority of the Flushing Meadows resource contains shallow oxide mineralisation which suggests it is likely to be amenable to extraction via simple open cut mining methods and inexpensive processing.

“If we can demonstrate strong open-pit economics, the operators of nearby mills are likely to be interested in the material to augment their production profiles.

“The design of our next reverse circulation drilling program to expand the Flushing Meadows mineralisation envelopes is complete and we will test shallow areas where unclassified resources have been identified adjacent to the current mineral resource.”

The majority of the estimate reports to the inferred resource category and it is likely that with infill drilling to nominal spacing of 20-25 metres, a large portion could be upgraded to the higher confidence indicated resource category.

There is potential to expand mineralisation as the deposit remains open in many directions and a new 10,000-metre drill program is set to commence in early October.

Hughes said, “Early-stage development activities have also commenced including metallurgical sighter test work and a spring flora and fauna survey over the extents of a potential development area.”
