Red River Resources Ltd (ASX:RVR) continues its review of high-grade gold targets at its recently acquired Hillgrove Gold Project in New South Wales.
The Curry’s Block area was geologically mapped and sampled in October 2019.
22 grab samples were taken from the historical waste dumps and one rock chip sample was taken from in situ mineralisation within a shallow pit.
Assay results graded up to 48.9 g/t gold, 10.55% antimony (Sb) and 8.8% tungsten (W).
One kilometre strike with mineralisation at surface
Exploration work to date has led Red River to believe that Curry’s Block has great potential with these latest results exceeding expectations.
Curry’s Block has a strike length of one kilometre, mineralisation at surface, multiple mineralised lodes and high-grade gold, antimony and tungsten mineralisation present.
Furthermore, the Curry’s Block area is 4.5 kilometres from the Hillgrove Processing Plant utilising existing roads.
Hillgrove adds to Thalanga zinc operation
Red River acquired the Hillgrove Gold Project earlier this year, which hosts a historical gold mine and processing plant.
The acquisition of the advanced project provides an expedited pathway to gold production (and possibly other minerals) to build on the flagship Thalanga zinc operations.
