THE DRILL SERGEANT: Rox Resources (ASX: RXL), in conjunction with its joint venture partner Venus Metals Corporation (ASX: VMC) reported results from its early 2020 drilling program undertaken at the Youanmi project in Western Australia.
Rox Resources reported that recent drilling at Youanmi has defined a very high-grade zone of mineralisation (greater than 30 gram-metres) extending from surface, open to the north that lies within a broader wide zone of mineralisation.
Recent assays from drilling undertaken at the Grace prospect include:
7 metres at 54.6 grams per tonne gold from 8m;
1m at 29.7g/t gold from 23m;
6m at 5.7g/t gold from 24m;
4m at 4.5g/t gold from 9m, and 3m at 5.32g/t gold from 53m.
“The Grace prospect is emerging as an exciting high-grade deposit with one of the better recent intersections returned from hole RXRC151 being a spectacular 7 metres at 54.6 grams per tonne gold from 8 metres,” Rox Resources managing director Alex Passmore said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“This newly discovered mineralisation has all the hallmarks needed to bring it into early production-it is close to surface, lies near to existing pits and sits within a granted mining lease which already has substantial infrastructure.”
