THE DRILL SERGEANT: Rox Resources (ASX: RXL), in conjunction with its Joint Venture partner Venus Metals Corporation (ASX: VMC), announced further results from an ongoing drilling campaign at the OYG JV which forms part of the wider Youanmi gold project in Western Australia.
Rox Resources’ recent drilling at the Youanmi gold project has intersected more high-grade gold mineralisation.
Results received from Youanmi South and Commonwealth drilling include:
4m at 11.23 grams per tonne gold from 92m; (Youanmi South)
8m at 3.73g/t gold from 60m; and (Commonwealth)
3m at 5.45g/t gold from 87m. (Commonwealth)
The company said that drilling at the Plant Zone has continued to define shallow, potential ‘base load mill feed’ with new results showing continuations to shallow mineralisation including:
8m at 2.62g/t gold from 60m;
9m at 1.04g/t gold from 83m; and
8m at 1.03g/t gold from 44m.
“These results continue to show the excellent potential of the Youanmi belt and the OYG JV in particular and we look forward to presenting further results when they become available,” Rox Resources managing director Alex Passmore said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“Drilling at the Plant Zone prospect, a granite stockwork style of mineralisation now delineated over a 1.4 kilometre strike length, continues to add scale to the overall project gold inventory.”
Rox’s recent drilling has been focussed on the Plant Zone (potentially base load mill feed) and the high-grade Commonwealth prospect.
The company expects to shift its focus onto the Youanmi South prospect following completion of geophysical surveying (drone mag).
The Youanmi South prospect has previously returned some of the best drill intersections of the current drill program.
