Work primarily focused on infill drilling of the South East Crescent and Breccia Zone and all 26 new drill holes intersected mineralisation.
The best results include 196.1 metres at 1.7 grammes a tonne (g/t) gold and 0.28% copper from a depth of 545.9 metres and 97 metres at 3.9g/t gold and 0.50% copper. One of the drill results showed 169.5 metres at 3.4g/t gold and 0.33% copper, including 3.1 metres where the gold grade was as high as 95g/t.
“We are pleased to once again observe high grades of gold and copper at extensive widths, with all drill holes intercepting mineralisation,” said chief executive Shaun Day. “The results are outstanding and further highlight the world-class potential of Havieron. Additionally, these results layer onto existing data to further increase our confidence in the continuity of higher-grade mineralisation and support the delivery of an indicated mineral resource estimate.”
“We are yet to define the full size of Havieron and, subject to further exploration success, this programme has the potential to significantly expand the mineralised footprint,” he added.
Exploration activities at Havieron are operated by Newcrest Mining Ltd (ASX:NCM) under a joint venture agreement.
