Antipa Minerals Encounters High-Grade Gold Intersections at Minyari Project GEO-01 Target

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Antipa Minerals (ASX: AZY) reported results from the first six holes of recent CY2024 Phase 1 drilling at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Minyari Dome gold-copper project in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.

Antipa Minerals has completed the initial 39 reverse circulation (RC) holes of the 71-hole drilling program, from which assay results for the first six RC holes drilled at the GEO-01 target returned thick zones of near surface, potentially open pittable, high-grade gold mineralisation.

High-grade intersections from the first six drill holes include:

66 metres at 1.4 grams per tonne gold and 0.04 per cent copper from 118m down hole in, including 6m at 1.9 g/t gold and 0.11 per cent copper from 118m down hole, and 17m at 4.4 g/t gold from 157m down hole, including 4m at 15.5 g/t gold from 168m;

26m at 1.3 g/t gold from 37m down hole, including 6m at 2.4 g/t gold from 37m down hole and 4m at 2.4 g/t gold from 59m down hole, and
20m at 2.4 g/t gold from 114m down hole, including 11m at 3.4 g/t gold from 122m down hole, including 3m at 4.8 g/t gold from 124m; and

39m at 1g/t gold from 71m down hole, including 5m at 2g/t gold from 71m down hole and 2m at 2.8g/t gold from 94m downhole.

“Our Phase 1 CY2024 drill program is off to a great start, with fantastic initial results returned from the first six holes of resource delineation drilling at GEO-01,” Antipa Minerals managing director Roger Mason said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“Grades of up to one metre at 28.9 grams per tonne gold have been returned, with multiple intersections of near surface high-grade mineralisation.

“Importantly, these results show an increase in the thickness of the main zone of mineralisation.

“With GEO-01 open in most directions, it continues to shape up as a substantial shallow, maiden resource opportunity.

“We look forward to receiving the next batch of GEO-01 results in the coming weeks.”
