Hammer unearths more gold in Queensland
Follow-up rock chip sampling by Hammer Metals has delineated gold mineralisation over 1km of strike length at the El Questro prospect within its Malbon project in Queensland’s Mount Isa mining district.
Rock chip sampling along strike from the previous 99.4 gram per tonne gold result at the prospect returned top grades of 49.9g/t gold, 8.27g/t gold, 7.24g/t gold and 6.64g/t gold.
The rock chips were taken from iron-rich quartz veining upstream from the historical El Questro alluvial workings.
Check sampling at El Questro North about 1.1km north along strike also returned individual peak grades of up to 7.24g/t gold and 19.7% copper.
Further exploration will be conducted in the coming months to define the prospective zones at El Questro.
At the Mt Philp Breccia project about 45km to the west, rock chip grades of up to 7.1% copper and 0.44g/t gold were obtained from the Pelican Waterhole area, while grades of up to 1.83% copper and 0.23g/t gold were observed adjacent to the Mt Philp East soil anomaly.
Further sampling and mapping of Mt Philp East, including all the remaining anomalies, will be assessed in the coming months.
Over in Western Australia, the company is mid-way through an induced polarisation survey at its Bronzewing South gold project in the highly endowed Yandal greenstone belt.
This survey aims to refine potential drilling targets identified during an initial field reconnaissance phase.
Bronzewing South is located immediately south and adjacent to Echo Resources’ 4 million ounce Bronzewing mine.
Hammer Chairman Russell Davis said: “With the IP survey well underway at the Bronzewing South gold project and drilling planned there for August on top of the promising results from prospecting activity at the Mount Isa Project, we are anticipating an exciting period coming up for the company for the remainder of the 2019 field season.”
