Musgrave Minerals Encounters More Thick Intervals of Near-Surface Gold

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) reported the latest assay results from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Big Sky and Target 14 prospects at the company’s Cue gold project in Western Australia’s Murchison district.

Musgrave Minerals has been drilling along a new gold corridor south-west of the Lena and Break of Day deposits on its 100 per cent-owned ground.

Recent assays from the RC drilling has defined further thick regolith gold mineralisation within the 2.6 kilometres-long aircore gold anomaly at Big Sky.

Gold mineralisation remains open down dip at Big Sky and infill resource definition RC drilling has commenced.

The drilling has also demonstrated Target 14 remains open and further drilling to follow-up the recent intercept will commence in October.

New intersections include:

Target 14

21MORC185
36 metres at 2.9 grams per tonne gold from 12m, including 24m at 4.1g/t gold from 24m.

Big Sky

21MORC196
60m at 1g/t gold from 42m, drilled 50m south of 21MORC101 drilled earlier this year, returning 73m at 1.4g/t gold.

21MORC157
6m at 6.9g/t gold from 12m;

21MORC160
18m at 1.1g/t gold from 36m; and

21MORC189
12m at 1.7g/t gold from 84m.

The company explained its ongoing focus is on the higher grade and thicker intervals of gold mineralisation intersected to date and that the extensive nature and continuity of the gold mineralisation it has encountered supports its view that the Big Sky prospect has the potential to add to the company’s existing resource base at Cue.

“Big Sky and Target 14 are new and exciting discovery opportunities for the company,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“Thick, near-surface, oxide gold mineralisation has been identified over broad intervals at Big Sky, which has the potential to add significant feed tonnes to a future operation focused at Break of Day and Lena.
“The potential addition of soft oxide mineralisation from Big Sky, together with the higher-grade Break of Day and Lena deposits only two kilometres to the north could significantly improve sustainability of production scheduling and help provide feed continuity over a longer potential operating term.

“Big Sky continues to deliver strong results for Musgrave.

“We are focusing on near-surface resource growth and exploring for both smaller high-grade deposits like White Heat in combination with larger near-surface but lower grade mineralisation like Big Sky.

“Both can potentially be mined by open pit methods and blended to maintain a steady rate of production.

“A 7,000 metres RC follow-up resource drilling program at Big Sky has commenced.

“The drilling will focus on three zones of between 600 metres and 200 metres of continuous mineralised strike, with the aim of defining a near-surface gold resource to grow the total resource inventory at Cue.

“Drilling is ongoing, and we look forward to updating the market with further results as assays are received.”

Musgrave Minerals Turns Up White Heat Gold Hits

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) reported continued high-grade gold hits from diamond drilling at the White Heat prospect, 300m south of Break of Day on the company’s 100 per cent-owned ground at the Cue gold project in Western Australia.

Diamond drilling at White Heat (formerly Target 2) has identified further very high-grade gold mineralisation near surface, intersected over a strike extent of 70 to 100 metres.

New intercepts include:

21MODD018
8.4m at 6.8 grams per tonne gold from 27.3m, including 1.2m at 37.2g/t gold from 27.3m

21MODD019
6.8m at 17.8g/t gold from 47m in the hanging wall lode, including 0.7m at 112.9g/t gold from 48.1m; and

3.4m at 107.6g/t gold from 74.6m in the footwall lode, including 1.2m at 303.2g/t gold from 74.6m.

“These are bonanza results and support our previous drilling at the high-grade White Heat deposit,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The White Heat lode is in a similar orientation and geological setting to the high-grade Starlight Lode only 400 metres to the north but is currently not included in a mineral resource estimate.

“These results from White Heat further highlight the potential to discover additional high-grade gold lodes within the project area.

“The combination of near-surface high-grade lodes like White Heat and Starlight, together with the large, moderate grade Big Sky style targets are expected to complement each other and enhance the future development potential of the project.

“Exploration is continuing to deliver strong results and add value for our shareholders.

“Drilling will resume at White Heat in September as we continue to extend the plunge of the mineralisation.”

21MORC130
18m at 1.2g/t gold from 18m;

21MORC132
24m at 1.7g/t gold from 24m; and

21MORC141
30m at 1g/t gold from 30m.

Musgrave also received one-metre resample assays from previously reported six-metre composites from 24 resource definition RC drill holes at the Big Sky prospect, which confirmed the results from the six-metre composite sampling.

Re-assaying of one-metre samples from original composites returned:

21MORC101
73m at 1.4g/t gold from 41m, including 5m at 10.1g/t gold from 72m;

21MORC082
36m at 1.3g/t gold from 30m, including 11m at 3g/t gold from 55m; and

21MORC095
9m at 1.8g/t gold from 75m.

“Big Sky is proving to be a significant large scale gold system and the RC drilling continues to return strong results of near surface gold mineralisation within the 2.6 kilometres long corridor,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The continuity of the broad near-surface gold mineralisation intersected to date is very encouraging and demonstrates we are onto a large gold system at Big Sky with the potential to deliver a significant near surface resource.

“Unfortunately, assay turnaround has been slow but is starting to improve.

“We are still awaiting assays for more than 57 RC drill holes from Big Sky and we look forward to updating the market with further results as assays are received.”

Musgrave Minerals Encounters Thick Gold Intersections at Big Sky

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) reported new assay results from reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Big Sky prospect, situated along a new gold corridor south-west of Lena on the company’s 100 per cent-owned ground at the Cue gold project in Western Australia’s Murchison district.

RC drilling completed south-west of Lena within the new seven kilometres-long gold corridor has continued to intersect gold mineralisation below thin transported cover (1-20m) in areas that had not been drilled by previous explorers.

The Big Sky gold anomaly is defined over 2.6km of continuous strike where it remains open to the north and south.

Intersections include:

21MORC101
84 metres at 1.4 grams per tonne gold from 24m, including 12m at 6.6g/t gold from 66m;

21MORC100
42m at 1.1g/t gold from 30m;

21MORC082
36m at 1.2g/t gold from 30m; and

21MORC094
12m at 1.7g/t gold from 108m to EOH.

“The RC drilling has confirmed the potential for significant gold mineralisation at Big Sky and the possibility of a number of higher-grade zones within the broader anomalous trend,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“Drill traverse line spacing remains at more than 100 metres for much of the target area and assays are pending for more than 50 RC drill holes.

“The mineralisation is masked from surface by a thin veneer of transported hardpan cover.

“The near surface nature of the oxide, regolith gold mineralisation is expected to be favourable for open-cut mining.

“Regional drilling will continue with the aim of defining discrete higher-grade zones for resource definition.”

The current resource estimate for the Cue gold project totals 6.4 million tonnes at 3.2g/t gold for 659,000 ounces, including the Break of Day deposit (797,000 tonnes at 10.2g/t gold for 262,000 ounces contained gold) and the Lena deposit (4.3 million tonnes at 2.3g/t gold for 325,000 ounces contained gold) located 130m to the west of Break of Day.

Musgrave Minerals Identifies New Cue Gold Corridor

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) believes it may have opened a new seven-kilometres-long mineralised corridor at the company’s Cue gold project in the Murchison region of Western Australia.

Musgrave Minerals recently completed basement RC drilling west of the Lena deposit at Cue that intersected gold mineralisation in what could potentially be a new mineralised corridor extending from Target 14 in the north through to Targets 5 and 20, 2.5km to the south where it remains open.

The drilling at Target 14 was targeted to identify the source of a regional regolith aircore gold anomaly 800m west of Lena, the company had interpreted to represent a possible new, untested shear corridor hosted in felsic and sedimentary lithologies.

Musgrave thinks this new corridor has a potential strike of over 7km and is along trend from Targets 5 and 20 more than 2.5km to the south.

The area has no previous drilling.

RC drilling at the Target 14 prospect, west of Lena intersected thick gold mineralisation including:

21MORC019
30 metres at 3.5 grams per tonne gold from 36m, including 12m at 6.9g/t gold from 36m.

Drilling at Target 5, 2.5km to the south, intersected gold mineralisation in basement, from which 1m resamples confirmed high gold grades.

Results include:

20MUAC412
5m at 42.2g/t gold from 25m;

21MORC030
34m at 0.73g/t gold from 42m to EOH, including 18m at 1.2g/t gold from 48m; and

21MORC029
52m at 0.61g/t gold from 30m to EOH, including 12m at 1.2g/t gold from 36m.

At Target 20, 500m south of Target 5, initial RC drilling intersected:

21MORC020
34m at 0.74g/t gold from 38m to EOH, including 6m at 2.3g/t gold from 44m.

“These results are potentially very significant as these are the first basement drill holes into what could represent a seven kilometre stretch of a new mineralised shear corridor with no previous drilling,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“We have now intersected basement gold mineralisation in broad intervals over more than three kilometres of strike in this new shear corridor and the team is excited by the opportunity to continue to test this area.

“This new well mineralised gold corridor remains largely undrilled in bedrock and can host significant widths of high-grade gold mineralisation.

“Drilling is ongoing with further assay results expected in coming weeks from White Heat and follow-up of Targets 5, 14 and 20.”

Musgrave Minerals Hits Gold with First White Heat Drilling

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Musgrave Minerals (ASX: MGV) added to its list of 100 per cent-owned Cue project achievements with recent reverse circulation (RC) drilling returning strong assay results from the newly discovered White Heat prospect in Western Australia.

Before being called White Heat, the prospect was formerly known as Target 2.

The recent drilling campaign identified high-grade gold in two basement zones with both zones open along strike and at depth.

Nine RC drill holes have been completed to date with assays received for the first four holes.

Intercepts from 1m individual samples include:

21MORC001
6m at 15.3 grams per tonne gold from 38m, including 3m at 28.8g/t gold from 38m

21MORC002
9m at 7.1g/t gold from 60m, including 2m at 28.7g/t gold from 60m and
4m at 43.2g/t gold from 98m, including 2m at 83.9g/t gold from 98m

21MORC003
6m at 7.4g/t gold from 35m, including 2m at 18.8g/t gold from 35m; and

21MORC004
5m at 8.8g/t gold from 40m.

“This is a great result from the first four RC holes at the new White Heat prospect and demonstrates the exploration upside of the tenement package,” Musgrave Minerals managing director Rob Waugh said in the company’s ASX announcement.

“The gold is high-grade and near surface but masked from previous explorers by two to three of transported hardpan clays.

‘Drilling is ongoing at White Heat which is only 400 metres south of the new Starlight lode.”
