THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alto Metals (ASX: AME) reported further shallow, high-grade gold assay results from RC drilling below the Lord Henry pit, as part of an ongoing RC drilling program at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Sandstone gold project in Western Australia.
Alto Metals designed the current drilling at Lord Henry for resource definition, targeting down-dip extensions of mineralisation to the north, strike extensions to the west and targeting further potential stacked lodes at depth.
The latest assays from RC drilling at Lord Henry include:
4 metres at 15.6 grams per tonne gold from surface, 4m at 2.1g/t gold from 12m, and 8m at 13.6 g/t gold from 56m;
20m at 1.3 g/t gold from 40m, including 8m at 2g/t gold from 44m and 4m at 6g/t gold from 80m;
36m at 1.9g/t gold from 8m;
4m at 4.5g/t gold from 88m;
4m at 1.9g/t gold from 76m;
4m at 1.1g/t gold from 12m; and
4m at 1.6g/t gold from 64m.
Alto Metals managing director Matthew Bowles said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“These latest results highlight the nature of the shallow dipping, multiple stacked lodes of high-grade gold mineralisation below the Lord Henry pit, which remains open down-dip to the north, along strike and has potential for further repeat lodes to be discovered at depth.
“We re-commenced a major drilling program at the start of the year and the results received to date clearly demonstrate there is lot more gold to be found at Sandstone.
“With RC drilling continuing, investors can look forward to further results as we wait for assays from 16 diamond holes and over 120 RC holes, in addition to an updated mineral resource estimate later in the year, subject to final assays.”
