High-grade gold results
Last month the company obtained further strong results from regional drilling south of the Tomingley Gold Operations (TGO) in NSW.
The company received further high-grade results from an ongoing 60,000-metre resource definition drilling program on San Antonia and Roswell prospects about 3-4 kilometres south of TGO.
Assays from the second 5,000 metres of this program returned up to 9 metres at 2.33 g/t from 24 metres and 44 metres at 2.76 g/t from 45 metres, including 3 metres at 16.6 g.t from 57 metres at San Antonio.
