Great Southern Mining intersects new gold up to 1-kilometre along strike at Coxs Find

Great Southern Mining Ltd (ASX:GSN) has intersected gold mineralisation in phase-two reverse circulation (RC) drilling up to 1-kilometre along strike at the Coxs Find project in WAs Laverton Gold District.

The first-pass drilling at two key along-strike targets north of Coxs Find has identified mineralised zones that remain open along strike and at depth.

Strong results[hhmc]
Target 2 is 400 metres and Target 3 is 1-kilometre along strike with the best result being 8 metres at 1.1 g/t from 91 metres including 2 metres at 3.2 g/t.

Other highly encouraging results are 6 metres at 1.0 g/t from 114 metres including 2 metres at 1.7 g/t, and 13 metres at 0.7 g/t from 34 metres including 1-metre at 1.7 g/t.

GSN chief executive officer Sean Gregory said the results represented significant success for GSN.

Strong results


Target 2 is 400 metres and Target 3 is 1-kilometre along strike with the best result being 8 metres at 1.1 g/t from 91 metres including 2 metres at 3.2 g/t.

Other highly encouraging results are 6 metres at 1.0 g/t from 114 metres including 2 metres at 1.7 g/t, and 13 metres at 0.7 g/t from 34 metres including 1-metre at 1.7 g/t.

GSN chief executive officer Sean Gregory said the results represented significant success for GSN.

“Increase overall prospectivity”


“They demonstrate that gold mineralisation is not constrained to the Coxs Find deposit and is evidenced for at least a further 1-kilometre along strike.

“They also show that historical RAB drilling in these northern areas by previous owners stopped short of genuine target depth in multiple zones.

“In short, the results substantially increase the overall prospectivity of the target corridor to the north of Coxs Find.”

Phase-2 drilling


The results are from the second phase of a two-phase RC drill program of 8,216 metres at the broader Coxs Find Project area.

This second phase comprised 20 RC holes for 2,184 metres across the two northern structural target areas.

Targets 2 and 3 represent only the first two of several along-strike targets set to be drilled, which includes multiple areas further to the north of Target 3.

High-priority follow-up drilling is being planned on Targets 2 and 3.

Further targets


Several further high-priority regional targets generated from the initial structural geology interpretation remain untested and are expected to be a key focus for the next phase of drilling, including a target that lies on the newly granted E38/3476.

Gregory said: “It is also important to note that Targets 2 and 3 are only the first two of several high-priority regional targets set to be drilled.

“GSN intends to aggressively follow-up this success, and the other high-priority structural target zones, with an intensive drilling program in the short term.”

Tenement E38/3476 lies about 40 metres directly north of this northern-most line of RC drilling at Target 3.

This tenement was still under application at the time of drilling and no ground-disturbing activitiesRead More – Source

Argonaut Resources directors show faith in company by participating in oversubscribed SPP

Argonaut Resources NL (ASX:ARE) directors have demonstrated their faith in the company’s copper-zinc strategy by participating in the recently closed share purchase plan (SPP).

Independent non-executive chairman Patrick Elliot purchased more than 4.465 million shares at 0.55 cents per share in an indirect interest.

He now holds 5,876,159 shares in that interest with another 20,324,574 held in a separate indirect interest.

Independent non-executive chairman Malcolm Richmond acquired more than 5.454 million shares in a direct interest, increasing the number held in this interest to almost 15 million with another 1 million held in an indirect interest.

Overwhelming response to SPP[hhmc]
The company was overwhelmed by the response to its SPP which closed early and more than twice oversubscribed with the target subsequently increased to $2.5 million from $1.2 million.

Subscriptions in excess of $3 million were received and as a result, the SPP was closed with immediate effect.

Strickland Metals shares jump 39% ahead of drilling base metal target near DeGrussa

Strickland Metals Ltd (ASX:STK) shares surged 39% today ahead of its maiden drilling program at the Doolgunna Project, which will include a diamond drilling program that is likely to begin by the end of this month.

As a part of the program, a minimum of four diamond holes will be drilled to a depth of 500 metres to test a VMS target similar to the nearby DeGrussa deposit of Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR).

Heritage survey[hhmc]
Exploration activity has recommenced on the Doolgunna Project following completion of heritage surveys to allow land access to areas where the company wishes to complete exploration drilling.

The target for drilling is a compelling base metal prospect that exhibits geological characteristics that are interpreted to be similar to Sandfire Resources’ DeGrussa deposit about 30 kilometres to the east of the project.

The prospect has a 3-kilometre-long electromagnetic conductor that lies below an outcropping copper-zinc gossan that has been mapped over a 1.2-kilomet..

Pan Asia Metals has positive discussions on plans for Thai lithium project

Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX:PAM) has had positive discussions with authorities in Phang Nga Province, Thailand, including the provincial government, for its Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAM has submitted a presentation covering all aspects of the project including methods of ongoing exploration, conceptual mining and concentrate production, and the potential for downstream value-adding industries in Phang Nga and Thailand.

The presentation and subsequent discussions were aimed at assisting Phang Nga Provincial Government in their considerations for the proposed mining and industrial development areas.

Provincial Government discussions


Pan Asia was recently invited by the chief executive officer of the Phang Nga Provincial Administrative Organisation (PAO), a Phang Nga Provincial Government coordinating body, to represent PAM and the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

The meeting was also attended by the head of Phang Nga Provincial Industry along with the representatives of the Phang Nga Provincial Public Works and Town Planning Office.

Phang Nga Provincial Industry head has been appointed by the Phang Nga governor as chairman of the Phang Nga New Town Planning Committee.

During the meeting, the chairman of the committee conveyed its support for the Reung Kiet Lithium Project.

PAO wants to ensure that the requirements of the Reung Kiet project are incorporated into the town planning committee’s zoning plans to ensure that the project can progress once exploration and feasibility results prove positive.

“Can bring opportunities”


PAM managing director Paul Lock said: “We have been working hard in Phang Nga province and we are very happy with the positive reception that the Reung Kiet Lithium Project is receiving from the Phang Nga Provincial Government and surrounding communities.

“Reung Kiet is strategically located and based on peer feasibility work the project is positioned to potentially be one of the lowest-cost suppliers of lithium chemicals in the global peer group.

“This is a project that can bring substantial opportunities and value to Phang Nga and Thailand.”

Pan Asia is planning its second Reung Kiet drilling program with expectations that this will begin in the coming months following the conclusion of the current Khao Soon drilling program.

Potential cost curve leader


Reung Kiet is a hard rock project with lepidolite rich pegmatites chiefly composed of quartz, albite and lepidolite with minor cassiterite and tantalite as well as other accessory minerals including some rare earth.

Lepidolite does not require roasting and has a suite of by-products which are recoverable at the concentrator and processing stages of the flow sheet.
