Roughly 2,760 assay results have been received from second-stage soil sampling at the Golden Dome prospect area within the Big Springs Project in Nevada, US.

Golden Dome is one of the least explored areas within the Big Springs property, but also one of the most geologically intriguing and is adjacent to the producing Jerritt Canyon gold mine.

Combined with the soil sampling results from 2021, the anomalies identified are associated with the faults interpreted from the gravity survey completed in 2020, particularly at the fault intersections.

Anova (ASX:AWV) says the NW-SE faults with gold-in-soil anomalies extend well into the Jerritt Canyon tenure, where economic gold mineralization occurs; this observation is consistent with the soil gold anomalies identified at Golden Dome.

Six specific gold-in-soil anomalies have been identified, with a peak assayed gold content of 138 ppb.

AWV now aims to integrate the soil sample results into the company’s further planning for the area to refine trench and drilling targets for the next phase of exploration at Golden Dome.
