THE DRILL SERGEANT: Saturn Metals (ASX: STN) has continued its run of near surface gold intersections at the Apollo Hill deposit within the company’s 100 per cent-owned Apollo Hill gold project, south-east of Leonora in Western Australia.
Saturn Metals reported further results from ongoing RC drilling at Apollo Hill, which is being undertaken as part of the company’s strategy to grow the Apollo Hill Mineral Resource hat it upgraded to 944,000 ounces in January.
The company has a further resource upgrade pencilled in for later in 2021, after results come in from the next 30,000m of planned drilling across the Apollo Gold camp.
Latest results include:
54 metres at 3.72 grams per tonne gold from 43m, including 33m at 5.8g/t gold from 49m;
12m at 5.79g/t gold from 22m;
45m at 1.58g/t gold from 0m, including 14m at 2.88g/t gold from 0m and 12m at 1.5g/t gold from 28m;
65m at 0.96g/t gold from 43m, including 25m at 1.7g/t gold from 48m, including 8m at 3.13g/t gold from 57m; and
50m at 1.11g/t gold from 4m, including 22m at 1.63g/t gold from 6m.
“Results from this program have increased our confidence in the deposit’s potential and provided some excellent intersections for Saturn’s next planned resource upgrade,
“These results, along with other expansionary exploration, and recently reported drill results, provide strong leverage for ongoing growth at Apollo Hill.”
