Infill drilling at Horn Island
The company is encouraged by high-grade gold results returned from phase-one reverse circulation (RC) infill drilling at Horn Island Project in the Torres Strait, Queensland, with further programs planned to extend the RC infill extent for a future resource upgrade.
The purpose was to further investigate the controls, intensity and distribution of gold mineralisation with closer spaced data and to assess the impacts of the larger sample sizes from RC drilling compared to half NQ or HQ core.
It is hoped to upgrade the existing inferred resource in the company’s 100%-owned area of Horn Island Project
Managing director Andrew Buxton said: “The results from the first 15 holes from our infill program at Horn Island are highly encouraging.
“Our plan to continue to progress the ‘excluded zones’ independently of the JV is working well and we look forward to making further announcements in relation to this strategy as we receive further results.”
