THE DRILL SERGEANT: Aruma Resources (ASX: AAJ) achieved further anomalous gold results at the company’s Melrose gold project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Aruma Resources’ Melrose project sits on the southern edge of the Pilbara Craton, adjacent to Northern Star Resources’ (ASX: NST) Paulsens gold mine and Belvedere deposit.
The latest anomalous gold results come from two new Exploration Licence Applications (ELA47/4414 and ELA08/3244) mad by Aruma, which cover a total of 19 square kilometres at the Melrose project, hat have delivered historical gold samples up to 1.74 grams per tonne in quartz veins as well as rock chips assays.
Exploration Licence Application ELA08/3244 hosts gold mineralisation within quartz veins that were reported in Northern Star Resources’ 2012 Annual Exploration Report on the Ashburton project.
“The significance of the quartz veins in the new lease area is that they are expected to be associated with adjacent lode style gold mineralisation,” Aruma Resources said in its ASX announcement.
“Aruma will be utilising these veins to identify any associated lodes systems.”
