THE DRILL SERGEANT: Apollo Consolidated (ASX: AOP) declared hits of further widespread gold mineralisation from recent Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling undertaken at the Cleo discovery, located only 1.5 kilometres west of the main Rebecca deposit at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Lake Rebecca gold project east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Apollo Consolidated drilled nine RC holes at Cleo, all of which intersected shallow gold mineralisation, including:
10 metres at 3.66 grams per tonne gold, 5m at 1.25g/t gold and 10m at 0.88g/t gold;
5m at 6.75g/t gold and 5m at 1.59g/t gold;
10m at 1.50g/t gold EOH, 5m at 1.84g/t gold and 5m at 1.56g/t gold;
10m at 1.10g/t gold in RCLR0808, 10m at 1.09g/t gold; and
5m at 3.76g/t gold and 5m at 1.34g/t gold.
“Immediate follow-up RC drilling will continue to scope this discovery and expand open mineralised zones into untested areas,” Apollo Consolidated said in its ASX announcement.
“Diamond drilling will confirm the orientation of mineralised structures and is scheduled to start in coming weeks.”
