A new high-grade gold target has been identified 2km north along strike of Harris Find

Great Western Exploration Ltd (ASX:GTE) has received assays from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Harris Find and May Queen East prospects within its Yandal West Gold Project in Western Australia.

Highlights feature 2 metres at 7.75 g/t gold from 20 metres at Harris Find and 2 metres at 3.89 g/t gold from 3 metres at May Queen East.

At both prospects, drilling targeted near-surface high-grade gold associated with the Harris Find Shear Zone (HFSZ).

Additional surface rock chip sampling at Harris Find grading up to 28 g/t gold has also extended the trend further south increasing the strike length to at least 340 metres.

Furthermore, a new gold target along the HFSZ located 2 kilometres north of Harris Find has been identified after a high-grade rock chip in veining of 23.5 g/t gold was identified.

The Harris Find assays have upgraded the prospect to a high-priority target and further drilling is being planned.

Three RC holes were completed with two holes intersecting the main target zone gold mineralisation to the south.

One of the holes also intersected a second previously unknown gold mineralised zone at depth in the footwall.

Harris Find was mined in the 1920s for gold and silver with a shaft around 20 metres deep completed with an average grade of 17 g/t gold.

To date, drilling has only tested to maximum depth of 40 metres and the mineralisation remains open in all directions.

Follow-drilling for near-surface gold at May Queen East

At May Queen East, three additional RC holes have provided further evidence of a significant gold trend at least 550 metres long that remains open along strike and at depth.

Two holes were drilled to test under a 4.19 g/t gold rock chip encountered near-surface gold including 2 metres at 3.89 g/t gold from 3 metres.

Planning for further follow-up drilling is underway.
