“These new assay results continue to deliver excellent widths and grade, confirming that the Mandilla Gold Project has an extensive strike length whilst remaining open at depth,” Anglo Australian Resources chairman John Jones said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“Ongoing drill campaigns will likely continue to expand the footprint of the syenite-hosted gold mineralized system.
“All the evidence to date points to there being significant potential for bulk open-pit mining style mineralisation at Mandilla.”
