Saturn Metals Drilling Encouraging Results at Apollo Hill

THE CONFERENCE CALLER: Saturn Metals (ASX: STN) has had a stellar 12 months since we last caught up with the company at last year’s Diggers & Dealers Conference.

Saturn Metals recently announced it had encountered additional strong drill results from a RC drilling campaign currently underway at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Apollo Hill gold project near Leonora in the Western Australian goldfields.

The company’s interpretation of the drilling has shown geology and assays outlining several hanging-wall splays defined over 800 metres of strike length.

The system is open at depth, down plunge and along strike.

Saturn Metals managing director Ian Bamborough sat down with the Resources Roadhouse at the 2019 Diggers & Dealers Mining Forum in Kalgooorlie to expand on the recent drilling and to provide some insight into what’s next.






Anitpa Minerals and JV Partner Rio Moving Ahead with Citadel Project Exploration

THE CONFERENCE CALLER: Antipa Minerals (ASX: AZY) is in the midst of an exploration program for the company’s Citadel project Farm-in and Joint Venture with Rio Tinto Exploration in Western Australia’s Paterson Province.

Antipa Minerals and Rio have a budget of $3.4 million allocated to the 2019 calendar year exploration program at Citadel, to cover the JV’s planned activities.

The exploration program is fully funded by Rio Tinto while Antipa resumed operatorship of the Citadel Farm-in, including the execution of the Exploration Program in March 2019.

Antipa stated Paterson Province dual exploration strategy strives to deliver both greenfield discoveries and increase brownfield gold and/or copper resources during 2019.

The company believes its exploration activities within the Citadel project are complementary to this strategy.

The Resources Roadhouse caught up with Antipa Minerals executive chairman Stephen Power at the 2019 Diggers & Dealers Mining Forum in Kalgoorlie for a quick chat.




Musgrave Minerals Progressing Drilling at Lena Deposit

THE CONFERENCE CALLER: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) is currently busy carrying out reverse circulation (RC) drilling on the Lena deposit at the company’s Cue project in Western Australia’s Murchison district.

The Lena deposit has an existing JORC 2012 resource of 2,682,000 tonnes at 1.77 grams per tonne gold for 153,000 ounces estimated at Lena Main to a maximum vertical depth of 160 metres.

The Lena deposit consists of several gold lodes, with Musgrave considering some to hold high-grade potential at depth.

Interpretation of historical drill data has identified a high-grade southerly plunging shoot on the main lode that remains open at depth below the current JORC resource.

The current drilling program will use a combination of RC (pre-collars) and diamond drilling to better define and infill this high-grade gold shoot below the existing resource.

The aim of the program is to improve the geological confidence in the continuity of the mineralisation by reducing the drill spacing to enable an upgrade of the Lena resource estimate.

Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh sat down with The Resources Roadhouse at the 2019 Diggers & Dealer Mining Forum in Kalgoorlie to provide an update on how the drilling was progressing.

The projects contain more than 400sqkm of playa lakes and 300 km of interpreted palaeochannels, all prospective for brine hosted SOP mineralisation.
