Eastern Metals Claims High-Grade Zinc Zone Discovery at Browns Reef

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Eastern Metals (ASX: EMS) will be looking for people to speak with at the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup to explain its interpretation of recent drill results at the company’s Browns Reef project in New South Wales.

Eastern Metals has declared the results to show the first stage of a high-grade zinc-dominated polymetallic zone discovery at Browns Reef.

The company said assays received from the initial diamond drilling campaign at Browns Reef encountered high-grade broad intersections of sulphide mineralisation in all four holes drilled.

High grade zinc assay results, include:

6 metres at 3.2 per cent zinc, 1.3 per cent lead, 0.12 per cent copper, 8.6 grams per tonne silver and 0.3g/t gold from 453.5m;

13m at 5.4 per cent zinc, 2.3 per cent lead, 0.14 per cent copper, 11.5g/t silver and 0.9g/t gold from 225m, including 2m at 14.6 per cent zinc, 5.1 per cent lead, 0.22 per cent copper, 22.5g/t silver and 0.5g/t gold from 225m;

16m at 4.1 per cent zinc, 1.6 per cent lead, 0.33 per cent copper, 27.5g/t silver and 0.4g/t gold from 251m, including 6m at 7.3 per cent zinc, 2.3 per cent lead, 0.58 per cent copper, 47.7g/t silver and 0.9g/t gold from 251m;

“This initial drilling campaign has been an outstanding success with high-grade mineralisation encountered in all holes over significant mineralised intervals,” Eastern Metals managing director and CEO Wayne Rossiter said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The Evergreen Zone lode has a current strike length of over 100 metres and vertical depth of at least 300 metres and remains open along strike and at depth.

“Our next steps will be to drill further along strike and this program has received regulatory approval.”
