THE DRILL SERGEANT: Exore Resources (ASX: ERX) declared that results from ongoing shallow aircore (AC) drilling had confirmed the company’s emerging Veronique gold discovery in northern Cote d’Ivoire.
Exore Resources said the results had provided progress towards the company’s objective of defining a multi-million-ounce gold project in northern Cote d’Ivoire.
The ongoing AC drilling at Veronique intersected high-grade, shallow gold mineralisation the company said produced evidence of a new gold discovery with large-scale potential.
Results from the latest broad-spaced, shallow AC drilling include:
12 metres at 7 grams pe tonne gold from 16m;
12m at 3.12g/t gold from 36m;
1m at 38.01g/t gold from 28m (EOH); and
8m at 2.23g/t gold from 48m.
“We remain extremely excited about the potential for a large-scale gold discovery at Veronique with these latest exceptional shallow aircore results,” Exore Resources managing director Justin Tremain said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“This latest drilling has resulted in an interpreted WNW strike orientation to the mineralisation which opens up the potential for a large array of kilometre scale sub-parallel mineralised lodes across many kilometres in width.
“The improved confidence in the strike orientation allows for ongoing infill and step out aircore drilling during the wet season in preparation for maiden RC drilling at the start of the dry season.”
