King River onto new high grade gold zone in Kimberley
King River Copper’s Mt Remarkable project near Kununurra is continuing to live up to its name with recent drilling unearthing a new, 9m long high grade gold zone going 2.78 grams per tonne gold from 45m down-hole including 1m @ 12.45g/t gold
The new zone is located on the easterly plunge predicted from the intersection of the Grahame and Trudi veins within a zone of quartz adularia veining.
The company said it plans to carry out drilling to test the extent of the new zone to the east and down plunge.
Step out drilling further to the east has also returned 5m @ 1.78g/t gold from 66m down-hole including 1m @ 5.76g/t gold.
The new results confirm the company’s belief that multiple high-grade zones may exist on the Trudi vein.
Meanwhile, drilling under the main Trudi Vein area continues to return solid numbers with best results including 2m @ 5.64g/t gold including 1m @ 11.1g/t gold and 15m @ 1.04g/t gold including 5.44g/t gold.
King River noted that an unexpected change in dip of the main vein has caused some of the subsequent deeper holes to hit the vein at much shallower depths than planned.
These deeper holes have also intersected a second vein, 6m south of the main vein, which could also host mineralisation according to the company.
Follow-up drilling at the newly discovered Jennifer Vein has returned gold mineralisation too with grades of up to 3.16g/t gold.
Last month, drilling at the Trudi Vein returned a stunning 6m @ 60g/t gold intersection from just 24m down-hole that included a top 0.3m zone grading 354g/t gold.
It is unclear just where Mt Remarkable will finish up when King River has exhausted its exploration options but it seems clear that it is prepared to regularly throw up surprises which always adds something to the hunt.
