These latest results have successfully extended hanging-wall mineralisation 150 metres to the north and provided evidence of new gold mineralisation outside of the resource model.
Highlights include 5 metres at 4.7 g/t gold from 126 metres, 6 metres at 4.0 8g/t gold from 108 metres and 14 metres at 1.4 g/t gold from 133 metres.

Evidence of new zones of mineralisation
The drilling provided evidence of new mineralisation including some 350 metres easy of the hanging-wall resource model.
The Ra mineralisation was extended 100 metres to the south and drilling has provided further evidence of gold mineralisation in the Ra – Apollo Hill Link Zone.
More drilling set to commence early January
Saturn’s managing director Ian Bamborough said: “Results continue to show the potential for significant resource growth immediately adjacent to Apollo Hill in the higher-grade hanging-wall zones, while a widening mineralised corridor may provide multiple opportunities for additional discovery.
“Improving mineralisation in other areas such as the Ra area is a bonus.
“Importantly, we look forward to results from our recently completed deeper step out holes which have been drilled to test for mineralisation down dip of both the northern and southern higher-grade hanging-wall zones.
“A second 10,000-metre extensional RC phase is planned to commence in early January 2020.”
Assays also remain pending for nine holes representing 2,000 metres of drilling completed as part of this program.
