The objective of the infill drilling was to upgrade the resource classification for some of the Moonshine and Moonshine North deposits to include indicated and measured resource categories.
- 101 metres at 28.4% iron from 73 metres;
- 84 metres at 30.4% iron from 78 metres including 14 metres at 41.2% iron;
- 53 metres at 32.8% iron from 46 metres.
These results are from the final five diamond and two RC holes in the infill drilling program and follow the previously reported results in December 2019.
Results to feed into resource update
Macarthur’s executive chairman Cameron McCall said: “This is an outstanding result that builds our confidence to upgrade the resource classification to include indicated and measured mineral resources.
“The updated mineral resource, when completed, will underpin the feasibility study to be completed for the Lake Giles Iron Project.”
Results add to December’s first assay batch
The infill drilling program was completed in late December and comprised 21 RC holes and nine diamond holes.
Highlights from the first results in December included 94 metres at 40.51% iron at Moonshine North.
