Twenty Seven Co Ltd (ASX:TSC) has received broad and shallow gold intersections in the first nine reverse circulation (RC) drill holes of a 33-hole program completed this month at Harmonic prospect of the Rover Project in WA.
Best intercepts from surface include:
- 18 metres at 1 g/t gold from 5 metres including 3 metres at 5.4 g/t from 17 metres;
- 17 metres at 1 g/t from surface including 3 metres at 2.1 g/t from 2 metres; and
- 8 metres at 1.1 g/t from surface including 2 metres at 2.8 g/t from surface.
Assay results from the remaining 24 holes testing the southerly extension.are expected in the near term.
“Confirm broad mineralised zone”
TSC chief executive officer Ian Warland said: “The initial drilling results are off to a solid start, with shallow broad intercepts of gold intersected at Harmonic.
“These new drill-holes, which build significantly on earlier work, confirm a continuous broad pervasive mineralised gold zone at Harmonic starts at surface and plunges to the south.
“Once all outstanding assays are received, we will have a significantly better understanding of the extent of gold mineralisation at Harmonic, Creasy 1, Red Bush and Maynard Intrusion targets.”

Rover drilling campaign
The RC drilling campaign over 33 drill-holes was designed to follow-up on previous significant results at the Harmonic and Creasy 1 prospects then test new gold targets discovered in TSC’s recent auger drilling and soil geochemical programs.
The four areas tested in this program include:
- Harmonic – where the prospective target area has been tripled to around 650 metres by the discovery of a 1.77 g/t gold rock chip that is about 400 metres to the northwest of the nearest RC drill-holes;
- Creasy 1 – where previous drilling intersected 15 metres at 3.8 g/t from 49 metres including 1-metre at 54 g/t;
- Red Bush – a very strong 600-metre-long gold in soil anomaly, supported by rock chips up to 0.6 g/t and just north of drill-hole 20RVRC045 which intersected 1-metre at 0.97 g/t gold, 13.4 g/t silver and anomalous lead 0.1%, zinc 0.27% and arsenic 1.2 % from 126 metres; and
- Maynard Intrusion – a gold in soil anomaly coincident with a favourable trap site, interpreted as a zone of potential high fluid flow at the southern end of a granitoid intrusion.
