Alto Metals Extends High Grade Gold Mineralisation at Juno

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals continued drilling at the company’s Sandstone gold project in Western Australia has intersected further high-grade gold mineralisation at the Juno deposit.

Juno is a recently discovered extension of the mineralised zone below the project’s Lord Nelson pit, which now extends for over a kilometre and remains open, both along strike and down dip.

Juno is the second new lode Alto has discovered within the Lords Corridor, from step-out drilling testing the strike and plunge extensions of the Lord Nelson footwall and hanging wall lodes, following the discovery of the high-grade Orion Lode.

New assay results include:

9 metres at 3.8 grams per tonne gold from 157m, including 5m at 5g/t gold from 160m;

7m at 4.4g/t gold from 163m;

12m at 2.1g/t gold from 160m, including 1m at 12.4g/t gold from 169m;

17m at 1.6g/t gold from 159m, including 3m at 6.3g/t gold from 171m; and

10m at 1.3g/t gold from 140m, including 5m at 2.1g/t gold from 144m.

“These latest results from the recently discovered Juno Lode continue to deliver significant high-grade intercepts,” Alto Metals managing director Matthew Bowles said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“Drilling focused on testing the dip and strike of existing mineralisation within the granodiorite damage zone and along the contact of the ultramafic footwall.

“The results have successfully extended the mineralisation at Juno, demonstrating the potential to continue growing this deposit.

“Further results from drilling at the Lords Corridor are still pending, including the follow up RC hole testing the down-dip extension to SRC576 which returned 67 metres at 2.3 grams per tonne gold.

“These results are expected to received shortly.

“Our next phase of drilling at Indomitable Camp is progressing well, as we continue to focus on growing resources and look forward to sharing assay results from this drilling campaign in the coming weeks and months ahead.”
