The company is conducting RAB drilling testing of an earlier reconnaissance drill intercept of 3 metres at 2 grams per tonne gold.

The latest drilling has returned the following gold results from this area:

–    10m at 1.19g/t gold from 5m;

–    10m at 1.8g/t gold from 16m;

–    2m at 1.9g/t gold from 4m; and

–    2m at 3.28g/t gold from 15m.

“These results highlight a strong new gold target,” Castle Minerals managing director Mike Ivey said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“A contract RC rig has arrived on site to test the Bundi zone and the program will now be extended to test this exciting new area.”

Castle said it will also be using RC drilling to test the newly-defined Jango prospect, from which it recently reported rock chip results up to 61g/t gold within a 300m long zone of artisanal workings in the Julie West area.
