High-Grade Gold at Kombi Prospect
- 4m @ 12.76g/t gold from 20 metres in NRC17004, and 1m @ 5.44g/t gold from 20 metres in NRC17001.
6 wide-spaced Reverse Circulation holes (NRC17001 to NRC17006) totalling 504 metres were drilled to test for high-grade gold mineralisation beneath the historic Gloria June gold workings (reported production to 10 metres depth of 1,094 tonnes @ 10.8g/t gold) and adjacent soil anomaly.
- RC drill program testing beneath historic workings and nearby soil anomaly successfully intersects high-grade gold mineralisation at less than 20 metres vertical depth:
o 4m @ 12.76g/t gold from 20 metres (NRC17004); and
o 1m @ 5.44g/t gold from 20 metres (NRC17001)
- Intercepts remain open in all directions with follow-up drilling planned as soon as possible
The NRC17001 and NRC17004 intercepts occur within a zone of largely unweathered quartz - biotite - chlorite alteration (+/- disseminated and stringer pyrite - chalcopyrite mineralisation) that is present within a sheared sequence of gabbro, amphibolite and meta-sediments (see Figures 3 to 6 in link below).
With no historic drilling beneath the most recent holes, the new intercepts remain open in all directions and are a high priority for follow-up.
Mithril plans to undertake further drilling at Kombi as soon as possible.
The Kombi Gold Prospect lies on EL51/1040 which is subject to a Farmin and Joint Venture Agreement with Intermin Resources Limited (ASX:IRC) whereby Mithril can earn a 60% interest by completing expenditure of $2M by 14 April 2019 (approximately $1.24M spent to date).
Mithril can earn an additional 15% by completing further expenditure of $2M over a further 2 years.
