Arrow Minerals drills widespread gold at T1 prospect
A total of 412 aircore holes were drilled averaging 13 metres depth each
A total of 412 shallow holes were drilled for 5,254 metres on a 400×40 metre spacing over the T1 prospect defining the key corridors T1a and T1b.
The widespread aircore drill program intersected gold along multiple major structures ranging from 2.0 kilometres to 3.0 kilometres in strike length.
Drilling at T1a intersected 3 metres at 0.9 g/t gold from 27 metres along strike from previous drill intercept of 15 metres at 1.5 g/t gold which included 3 metres at 6.7 g/t gold.
Exploration to date has identified a 2.8×0.8 kilometre gold-in-bedrock anomaly at T1a and a 2.5×0.6 kilometre gold-in-bedrock anomaly at T1b.
Arrow noted potentially similar geological features to the Copperhead gold deposit in the Southern Cross Belt which had historical gold production of over 1 million ounces.
Ground IP survey to identify RC targets
Petrophysical results from 2017 confirmed that mineralisation at the T1 prospect has a strong induced polarisation (IP) and resistivity contrast with surrounding unmineralised lithological units.
As such, a ground IP survey will be carried out over the T1a target area in the coming December quarter to assist in identifying drill targets for reverse circulation (RC) drill testing.
