THE DRILL SERGEANT: Middle Island Resources (ASX: MDI) stuck in its thumb and pulled out multiple high-grade gold intercepts from the Plum Pudding deposit within the company’s Sandstone gold project in the central Goldfields of Western Australia.
The new results comprise broad, consistent, shallow (less than 40m downhole depth) drill intercepts over a 300 metres strike length and up to 90m width.
New Phase 2 reverse circulation (RC) intercepts at Plum Pudding include:
7 metres at 24.1 grams per tonne gold;
7m at 19g/t gold;
12m at 7.22g/t gold;
3m at 24.7g/t gold;
27m at 1.42g/t gold;
3m at 10g/t gold; and
12m at 2.46g/t gold.
The latest results complement previously achieved intercepts derived from Phase 1 and historic RC drilling at Plum Pudding.
Middle Island has completed more than 45,000m of drilling in its Phase 1 and Phase 2 campaigns this year, extending several existing Sandstone deposits and identifying five new satellite open pit deposits.
The on-going Phase 2 RC and diamond drilling programs are almost exclusively focussed on infilling and extending the five new satellite open pit deposits, McClaren, McIntyre, Ridge, Old Town Well and Plum Pudding, identified by the Phase 1 RC drilling campaign in the first half of 2020.
All new satellite deposits are located on existing Mining Leases within 2.5 kilometres of the company’s 100 per cent-owned 600,000 tonnes per annum gold processing plant.
