Drilling underway at Kombi Gold Prospect
- RC drill program targeting high-grade gold beneath historic workings and adjacent soil anomaly
- Historic workings mined to 10 metres depth - reported production of 1,094 tonnes @ 10.8g/t gold and sampling of remnant quartz vein material returning results up to 271g/t gold
- No previous drill testing below 25 metres vertical depth
- Results expected by early October 2017
Kombi comprises shallow historic gold workings (reported production to 10 metres depth of 1,094 tonnes @ 10.8g/t gold) and a large gold in soil anomaly (150m x 170m in size as defined by the +10ppb gold contour with maximum value of 340ppb gold) immediately along strike from the workings (see Figure 2 in the link below).
Rock chip sampling of remnant vein quartz material from the workings returned results ranging from 0.27 g/t gold to 271 g/t gold.
Significantly Kombi has not been effectively drill tested in the past with only wide-spaced shallow drilling (less than 25 metres vertical depth) previously undertaken (see Mithril's ASX Announcement dated 7 August 2017 for further details).
The new drilling (~850 metres Reverse Circulation) is targeting high-grade gold mineralisation beneath the workings and soil anomaly with results expected by early October 2017.
The Kombi Gold Prospect lies on EL51/1040 which is subject to a Farmin and Joint Venture Agreement with Intermin Resources Limited (ASX:IRC).
Under the terms of the joint venture, Mithril can earn a 60% interest in the tenement by completing expenditure of $2M by 14 April 2019, and an additional 15% by completing further expenditure of $2M over a further 2 years.
