Tunkillia 223 Deposit Mineralisation Extended 300m North
Adelaide, Nov 15, 2023 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Barton Gold Holdings Limited (ASX:BGD) (BGD3:FRA) (BGDFF:OTCMKTS) is pleased to announce reverse circulation (RC) drilling assays from the Tunkillia Gold Project (Tunkillia). Results have been received for the 223 North, Northern 223, and Central 223 targets. RC and diamond drilling is ongoing at Area 51 and SE Offset.
Drilling has finished at Area 191 and Southern 223, with assays pending. Key new intersections include:
TKB131: 10m @ 1.67 g/t Au from 52m
TKB143: 54m @ 0.79 g/t Au from 60m, 20m @ 0.71 g/t Au from 118m
Hole TBK143 had over 100m combined mineralisation grading above 0.4 g/t Au.
TKB158: 7m @ 1.26 g/t Au from 168m
TKB160: 15m @ 1.06 g/t Au from 127m
TKB161: 9m @ 1.23 g/t Au from 176m
TKB120: 17m @ 2.29 g/t Au from 105m
TKB125: 9m @ 1.23 g/t Au from 83m
TKB126: 10m @ 1.16 g/t Au from 119m
Central 223 drilling tested the footwall of this ~300m long higher-grade zone.
Commenting on Tunkillia drilling assays, Barton MD Alex Scanlon said:
"We are encouraged to see mineralisation suggesting potential growth of the 223 Deposit to the north. Area 223 North is also interesting, with broad mineralisation complementing prior shallow, higher-grade drilling. "We will start updating the Resource model and expect to share results from southern extensional drilling soon."
