Forrestania Gold Project and Kat Gap Gold Project
Half Yearly Report and Accounts
Classic continued its work at the 100% owned Kat Gap tenements about 70 km to the South East of the Lady Ada and Lady Magdalene gold resources. Drilling was mainly focused on infill work to 10m x 10m and 20m x 10m grid spacing in readiness for final open pit optimisation and financial analysis. Results for a portion of the infill program have been received however the majority remain pending. Drilling was also undertaken to test the plunge direction of near surface high grade gold mineralisation on the granite-greenstone contact.
Classic completed two small drilling programs at Tangerine Trees and Van Uden West following up on previous and historical RAB and RC drilling.
The FGP Tenements (excluding Kat Gap) are registered in the name of Reed Exploration Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX-listed Hannans Ltd (ASX:HNR). Classic has acquired 80% of the gold rights on the FGP Tenements from a third party, whilst Hannans has maintained its 20% interest in the gold rights.
Classic Minerals owns a 100% interest in the gold rights on the Kat Gap Tenements and also non-gold rights including but not limited to nickel, lithium and other metals.
Classic has a Global Mineral Resource of 8.24 Mt at 1.52 g/t for 403,906 ounces of gold, classified and reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012), with a recent Scoping Study (see ASX Announcement released 2nd May 2017) suggesting both the technical and financial viability of the project. The current post-mining Mineral Resource for Lady Ada, Lady Magdalene and Kat Gap is tabulated below.
Additional technical detail on the Mineral Resource estimation is provided, further in the text in link below and in the JORC Table 1 as attached to ASX announcements dated 18 December 2019, 21 January 2020, and 20 April 2020.

The company has received assay results for only 19 RC holes (FKGRC248 - 266) for 1,260m of the total 112 holes drilled. The drilling programs consisted of 83 infill holes for 5,588m, 18 deeper holes for 2,824m and 11 holes for 954m out in the granite.
