Abundant Visible Gold - Gap Zone - Morning Star Gold Mine
Ballarat, April 29, 2022 AEST (ABN Newswire) - White Rock Minerals Ltd (ASX:WRM) (OTCMKTS:WRMCF) is pleased to announce that underground diamond drilling that is testing the Gap Zone has intersected a new unnamed quartz reef between the Clarke "A" Floor and Achilles Reef (Figure 2*). Abundant coarse visible gold (Photo 1*) can be seen within a single band contained in a 0.4 metre interval of quartz reef. Diamond drilling of the Gap Zone recently recommenced after the earlier drilling focus on the near-term potential of new mining areas at Dickenson, Stacpoole and Whitelaw North.

The drill program has been modified to provide a broad first pass assessment at nominal 40 metre centres to better understand the potential for the Gap Zone to host significant unknown quartz reefs (Figure 1*).

Drill hole 22GZL9013 is the first in the program to intersect significant visible gold. The unnamed reef is located at the 13 Level where no quartz reefs have previously been interpreted from the limited historic data.

White Rock's primary objective at the Morning Star gold mine is to identify and drill areas of the dyke that have the potential to host multiple high-grade gold quartz reefs. Utilising existing development infrastructure will support a low capital restart of production from multiple reef locations. The Gap Zone is one such primary target in the mine due to its size, multiple high-grade gold bearing reef potential and proximity to existing infrastructure including the Morning Star shaft.
