Arrow Minerals’ drilling confirms high-grade gold at the Strickland project
Results from the remaining 88 holes expected in the next 4-6 weeks
Results from the first 85 holes drilled along a 3.2 kilometre interpreted mineralised corridor at the T6 Prospect has returned significant gold intersections including:
• 16 metres at 1.9 g/t gold from surface including 4 metres at 8.5 g/t gold from surface;
• 9 metres at 2.6 g/t gold from 23 metres, including 3 metres at 7.1 g/t gold from 26 metres; and
• 3 metres at 1.6 g/t gold from 38 metres.
T6 Camp with mineralised corridor and drill collar locations
Drilling at T6 was designed to test a number of gold targets defined by detailed soil sampling, previous wide spaced aircore drilling and litho-structural mapping.
A total of 173 holes have been drilled for 8,500 metres, with results from the remaining 88 holes expected in the next 4-6 weeks.
Arrow managing director Steven Michael said: “The fence line drilling at T6c has successfully intersected high-grade, near-surface gold mineralisation along two sections of the 3.2 kilometres mineralised corridor.
“Importantly, we have identified mineralised intrusions and splays off the main fault which will be the focus of future drill programs here.
“Over 8,500 metres of fence line drilling has now been completed at T6, including three additional fence lines along the T6c mineralised corridor.
“We expect to announce the results of this drilling before the end of the year.”
Arrow has commenced drilling at the T2d Prospect, which is defined by a 3-kilometre long gold-in-soil anomaly directly overlying a sheared granite adjacent to the edge of the South Elvire Greenstone belt.
Drilling is expected to take 3-4 weeks to complete with final results by the end of January 2019.
Ground IP Survey
An IP (induced polarisation) crew has recently arrived on site and is conducting IP surveys over T2b and T1a to define drill targets for deeper drill testing in the first half of 2019.
