Middle Island Resources Completes 2020 Drilling Assay Collection

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Middle Island Resources (ASX: MDI) released further important gold results from Phase 2 reverse circulation (RC) drilling undertaken at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Sandstone gold project in the central goldfields of Western Australia.

Middle Island Resources conducted the Phase 2 RC and diamond drilling program predominantly focussed on upgrading existing deposits and infilling and extending five new satellite open pit deposits, McClaren, McIntyre, Ridge, Old Town Well and Plum Pudding, it had identified by its Phase 1 RC drilling campaign in the first half of CY20.

All new deposits are located on existing Mining Leases within 2.5 kilometres of the company’s 100%-owned gold processing plant.

New Phase 2 RC drilling intercepts from the Ridge deposit include:

7 metres at 6.49 grams per tonne gold; and
4m at 5.32g/t gold.

Phase 2 RC intercepts from the McClaren deposit include:

3m at 29.8g/t gold;
4m at 5.82g/t gold; and
11m at 2.11g/t gold.

The company said these results had complemented those achieved in its Phase 1 round of drilling.

“The new results now complete receipt of all resource definition assays for the total of 10 deposit extensions and new gold deposit discoveries achieved at Sandstone over 2020,” Middle Island Resources said in its ASX announcement.

A Phase 3 exploration drilling campaign, focussed on the McIntyre, Ridge and Shillington Gap areas at Sandstone, is planned to commence immediately following an extensive sterilisation drilling program.
