THE DRILL SERGEANT: Saturn Metals (ASX: STN) announced drill results from holes 14 to 24 of a planned 48-hole, RC and diamond drilling campaign underway at the company’s 100 per cent-owned Apollo Hill gold project, near Leonora in the Western Australian goldfields.
26 metres at 1.19 grams per tonne gold from 1m, including 10m at 2.1g/t gold from 8m; and
22m at 1.5g/t gold from 128m, including 12m at 2.33g/t gold from 128m.
Saturn Metals said the results would help it define a continuous higher grade (+2g/t gold) lode on the footwall side of the Apollo Hill Resource envelope.
“These excellent results will be a great addition to our next resource update planned for the second half of 2019,” Saturn Metals managing director Ian Bamborough said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“It is great to see the continuity of improved grade within the current resource envelope.
“In addition, further strong intersections such as AHRC0127 returning 6 metres at 5.21 grams per tonne gold from 37m in the hanging wall zone, continue to give us cause for excitement.”
Saturn Indicated it was planning to complete another 5,000 metres of drilling at Apollo Hill in the coming months.
Assay results from the ongoing drilling program will be reported as received.
