Old data points to solid copper-zinc opportunity for Auroch

New geophysical work by Auroch Minerals has identified potential base metal horizons striking over tens of kms at its new Arden project in South Australia. The encouraging results have prompted Auroch to fly a high resolution aeromagnetic survey to sharpen target definition ahead of a maiden drill program in the September quarter. Samples taken from old workings went 7% zinc and 10% copper.

BlackEarth nails maiden drilling program in Madagascar

BlackEarth has reported very encouraging graphite assays from its maiden drill program at the Maniry project in Madagascar. Results up to 36.7m @ 8.8% total graphitic carbon from the Razafy prospect attest to the high grade nature of the ore deposit. The program outlined continuous graphitic lenses 900 metres long and up to 50m thick from surface. Testing is underway to determine the quality of the product.

17g/t gold blast rock for Southern in Korea

Southern Gold’s decision to swoop on a number of abandoned gold mines in South Korea in 2016 is paying off handsomely, with grab samples from historically blasted rock at the old Kochang mine returning up to 17.4 g/t gold.

Emu onto new epithermal gold target in Chile

Emu NL has announced the discovery of a new gold target at its Jotahues project, within the strongly mineralised Maricunga precious metal belt in Chile. A recent soil geochemical sampling program at the Peon 4 prospect showed a 600m wide and 1.2km long anomalous zone of coincident gold, silver, copper, mercury and lead assays, which can be typical fingerprints for an epithermal gold system.

Kalia locks in $3m to fund Bougainville exploration

Kalia Limited has announced it will commence a highly anticipated exploration program on its porphyry copper-gold tenements on the PNG Island of Bougainville, after funds from a $3m secured loan facility were released this week.

Anglo Kalgoorlie gold project looking intriguing

Anglo Australian’s Kalgoorlie gold play is hurtling headlong towards a maiden resource after multiple successful passes with the drill rig produced gold intersections going up to 6 ounces to the tonne just 14km from the super pit. The project is located on the Norseman-Wiluna Belt which plays host to a number of major deposits including the 3moz New Celebration and 15m ounce St Ives gold mines.

Environmental approval falls for TNG vanadium/titanium play
