Higginsville drilling program
Argonaut has been buoyed by drilling results received from 37 holes across three targets at its Higginsville Gold Project in Western Australia.
The drilling program of 3,426 metres at Amorphous, Birties and Island prospects returned a best result of 5 metres at 2.04 g/t gold from 37 metres from Amorphous.
Other results from Amorphous deposit include 7 metres at 0.38 g/t from 57 metres, 6 metres at 0.33 g/t from 22 metres and 2 metres at 0.92 g/t from 71 metres.
Argonaut first drilled the Amorphous gold deposit in 2017.
The latest drilling program has increased the potential for a commercial gold deposit at Amorphous by demonstrating improved continuity of gold grades along a strike length of 800 metres.
Argonaut is also focusing on copper at a number of projects in Australia and Zambia.
