THE DRILL SERGEANT: Apollo Consolidated (ASX: AOP) recorded further strong gold hits from recent shallow infill drilling at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Lake Rebecca gold project in Western Australia.
Apollo Consolidated completed five RC exploration drill holes, all of which were drilled to add geological confidence around the margins of the high-grade Jennifer structure, a mineralised body in the 1.7 kilometres-long, 775,000-ounce Rebecca deposit.
All five infill RC holes hit gold in expected target locations, with additional mineralisation added in ‘hanging wall’ gold structures:
13 metres at 2.96 grams per tonne gold and 4m at 2.97g/t gold;
9m at 3.81g/t gold, 15m at 1.27g/t gold (hanging wall) and 1m at 15.3g/t gold (hanging wall);
18m at 1.79g/t gold (hanging wall);
7m at 3.33g/t gold & 9m at 1.19g/t gold; and
5m at 2.09g/t gold.
Apollo Consolidated has also carried out RC drilling on infill and extensional positions at the new Cleo discovery, described by the company as an area of widespread gold anomalism and previously encountered mineralised intercepts.
Twelve RC holes have been completed to date and a further six are planned.
Exploration drilling is now testing under-explored structural targets lying between Cleo, Duchess and Rebecca, as well as key resource-definition positions at Duchess and Duke.
The ongoing drilling is designed to expand on the maiden combined in-situ Mineral Resources Apollo released in February 2020 of 27.1 million tonnes at 1.2g/t gold for 1.035 million ounces of gold (at a 0.5g/t Au cut-off constrained within $2,250/oz optimised pit shells).
