THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals (ASX: AME) reported further assay results from ongoing RC drilling currently underway at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Sandstone gold project in Western Australia.
Alto Metals released the data that relates to four-metre composite results for 24 holes drilled at the Lords Corridor, targeting extensions of Lord Henry and the Orion Lode, and wide-spaced exploration drilling at the new Central Zone target.
The drilling at the new Central Zone within the Lords Corridor, is targeting an IP anomaly, from which Alto has continued to intercept broad zones of gold mineralisation, with new results including:
24 metres at 1.1 grams per tonne gold from 88m, including 8m at 2.6g/t gold from 100m – Central IP Target.
The above intercept was located approx. 240 metres south of an intercept announced in March of:
16m at 1.6g/t gold from 116m, including 4m at 5.3g/t gold from 124m.
Mineralisation within the new Central Zone has now been defined over a one kilometre strike and remains open.
Step-out drilling south of the Orion Lode, intersected gold mineralisation consistent with the geological targeting model, with new results including:
16m at 0.7g/t gold from 188m EOH; and
8m at 1.4g/t gold from 76m, including 4m at 2.5g/t gold from 80m.
At the time of release, Alto had four metre composite assays pending for a further RC 59 holes from approx. 12,000m of drilling, targeting extensions of known mineralisation at Lords Corridor and Vanguard and maiden first pass RC drilling at Chance.
RC and diamond drilling remains ongoing at the Lords Corridor, focused on completing the additional 10,000m of RC drilling and 3,000m of planned diamond drilling.
“These latest results, from beneath the historic Lord Henry pit, confirm the presence of high-grade gold mineralisation that remains open to the North,” Alto Metals managing director Matthew Bowles said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Together with the ongoing results from Orion, the Central Zone and Vanguard, we see significant potential to make new discoveries at the Lords Corridor.
“With diamond drilling underway and ongoing RC drilling targeting extensions of known mineralisation, we intend to continue systematically exploring these priority targets.”
