THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals (ASX: AME) has further highlighted the continuity of gold mineralisation at the Vanguard prospect within the company’s Sandstone gold project in Western Australia.
Alto Metals reported results from the latest four metre composite samples taken from wide-spaced step-out RC drilling at Vanguard, defined over 800m strike, that included:
28 metres at 1.5 grams per tonne gold from 132m, including 4m at 4.3g/t gold from 152m;
8m at 1.8g/t gold from 144m, including 4m at 2.9g/t gold from 144m;
4m at 2g/t gold from 64m; and
4m at 1.4g/t gold from 40m.
The company believes these latest results not only highlight the continuity of gold mineralisation at Vanguard, but also present a likelihood of further resource growth with multiple intercepts encountered outside the current resource.
“Vanguard is rapidly emerging as a very exciting prospect,” Alto Metals managing director Matthew Bowles said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Drilling has now defined mineralisation, together with Vanguard North, over a two kilometre north-west, south-east trend that remains open.
“We are confident that further drilling will demonstrate the growth potential not only at Vanguard but also regionally, along the much larger 20 kilometres corridor of differentiated dolerite that also hosts the Indomitable and Havilah deposits.
“Drilling is continuing at the Lords Corridor, where we now have two RC rigs and one diamond rig following up on the recently announced high-grade results targeting extensions of known mineralisation.
“A number of four metre and one metre assay results are still pending and these will further assist with our ongoing exploration targeting and future resource work.
“It is a very busy time on site with lot of activity as we continue to advance the project.”
