Dateline has commenced drilling the 2150 vein at its Gold Links project in Colorado, with the underground drilling contractor mobilised to site.

The underground exploration program comprises 4,000 metres of diamond core drilling targeting further assessment of the West and 2150 veins – both of which are known to host high-grade gold mineralisation.

The 2150 Vein includes an indicated mineral resource grading 14.73 g/t gold and the West vein (discovered in 2019) recorded a drill hole intercept of 0.98m at 30.2 g/t gold and 61 g/t silver.

Dateline Resources (ASX:DTR) reckons the program will take 5-6 months to complete and a decision to mine in H2 2021.

Clear strategy to mine Gold Links

“There is a sense of excitement at Gold Links with a full complement of mining contractor, drilling contractor and geological teams working well together,” Dateline managing director Stephen Baghdadi said.

“We have a clear strategy to define sufficient mineral resources to commence high-grade mining at Gold Links and processing the ore through our wholly-owned Lucky Strike mill located 50km away.”

Access road intersects quartz veins

The company is also upgrading the access road to the upper levels of the project to provide year-round access.

Geologists have reported multiple intersecting quartz vein zones in the road development which represent repetitions of the high-grade zones seen in the underground workings.

Mapping and sampling is underway to determine if they represent new mineralised targets for assessment.
