THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals (ASX: AME) announced further drill results from the new shallow gold Orion Lode discovery, located 200m south of the Lord Nelson pit, within the company’s Sandstone gold project in Western Australia.
Alto Metals said the latest results from the Orion Lode highlight the continuity of high-grade mineralisation at the new discovery, including:
12m at 4.8 grams per tonne gold from 84m;
4m at 4.1g/t gold from 28m; and
12m at 1.2g/t gold from 68m and 8m at 1.3g/t from 84m.
The company also completed RC drilling that targeted the primary gold mineralisation beneath the Lord Nelson pit, returning results, including:
8m at 4.1g/t gold from 208m.
“These latest results highlight the continuity of shallow, high-grade mineralisation at the new Orion Lode,” Alto Metals managing director Matthew Bowles said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“And the presence of the high-grade shoot within a much larger mineralised envelope, up to 50 metres thick, indicates the presence of a large gold mineralised system.
“We are excited by what we are seeing at Lord Nelson and, with the level of drilling and exploration activity planned to increase in the coming weeks, shareholders can look forward to more results as we test a number of possible Lord Nelson repeat lodes along the three kilometre long Lords’ corridor.”
