Alto Metals Review of Havilah-Maninga Marley Drilling Comes Up Trumps

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals (ASX: AME) claimed to have identified the Havilah-Maninga Marley prospect at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Sandstone gold project in Western Australia to have high-grade gold drill intercepts over a strike of 1,500 metres.

Alto Metals said the identification stemmed from a compilation of previous explorers’ data the company is conducting, which has demonstrated the Havilah-Maninga Marley prospect to be sitting within mafic volcanic host rocks similar to its recently drilled Vanguard prospect.

The review has revealed Maninga Marley RC intercepts, including:

6 metres at 15.8 grams per tonne gold, 3m at 13g/t gold and 7m at 10g/t gold.

“The 1,500 metre strike of the Havilah – Maninga Marley workings, the numerous shallow high-grade drill intersections and the strongly mineralised (dolerite/ultramafic) host is very encouraging,” Alto Metals managing director Dermot Ryan said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“Western Australian Archaean hosted gold deposits in these types of rocks have been found to have great depth extent, and the shallow workings and previous explorer’s shallow RC holes have not fully tested the prospect.”
