Saturn Metals has announced the results from drilling at the Apollo Hill Gold Project.
Assay results returned from two diamond drill holes, originally drilled for geotechnical purposes, have provided further definition around some of the deposit’s higher grade architecture and highlighted the potential for positive reconciliation in an area of the current Measured Mineral Resource (potential for localised improvements in grade).
The results have also further highlighted the potential for higher grade ores at surface across the deposit.
Assay results from this program will ultimately be used in future upgrades to Apollo Hill’s growing Mineral Resource (current published Mineral Resource of 105 Mt at 0.54g/t gold [Au] for 1,839,000oz reported above a cutoff grade of 0.20g/t Au).
The next upgrade is due after additional drilling planned for 2023/24.
Saturn Managing Director, Ian Bamborough, said that the results from infill drilling are consistently showing strong intersections and pockets of higher grade within the deposit.
“As we continue to progress the Apollo Hill project through its development studies towards production we also look forward to additional results from this year’s planned exploration and resource development drill programs.”
