THE DRILL SERGEANT: Integra Mining has received the latest results from an ongoing RC drilling program at the recently-discovered Imperial prospect, situated in the Majestic area, which is part of the company’s Randalls gold project.
The RC drilling is being conducted to test the continuity and extent of high-grade gold and copper mineralisation at Imperial.
Latest results include:
– 5 metres at 43.9 grams per tonne gold and 4.50 per cent copper, including 1 metre at 91.31 grams per tonne gold and 4.41 per cent copper;
– 6m at 10.28g/t gold and 1.13 per cent copper, including 1m at 24.59g/t gold and 2.08 per cent copper and 1m at 24.47 g/t gold and 3.13 per cent copper;
– 11m at 3.90g/t gold and 0.09 per cent copper, including 1m at 9.89g/t gold and 0.11 per cent copper; and
– 3m at 5.07g/t gold and 1.31 per cent copper.

The Imperial prospect is located approximately 500 metres northwest of the company’s Majestic gold deposit and is part of the Monger Joint Venture between Integra (85 per cent) and Newcrest Operations (15 per cent).
The recent results together with the previously reported results from drilling programs completed at Imperial in late 2011 and early 2012 indicate that the mineralisation continues for at least 190 metres strike and remains open to the north, south and down dip.
Assay results for a further 10 RC holes drilled at Imperial during the current campaign are pending, including an RC hole drilled 16 metres to the west of a previous hole that returned 5 metres at 43.9g/t gold and 4.50 per cent copper, where visual observations suggest a down-dip continuation of the mineralised zone.
