Great Northern has wrapped up diamond drilling at its Camel Creek project that saw all holes intersect favourable lithologies and potential mineralisation.

Over the next few days, all core for analysis from the 484m of diamond drilling will be transported to Townsville, Queensland, where it will be cut and submitted for multi-element analysis.

This follows on detailed 1m assaying of recent reverse circulation drilling by Great Northern Minerals (ASX:GNM) that confirmed the potential of the target Hinge Zone while supporting and clarifying the distribution of high-grade results within the project.

However, results from the diamond drilling will only be available by the end of January 2022 due to the unprecedented sample numbers and backlog.

Once these are received, the company will then define an initial JORC resource for Camel Creek.

Camel Creek

Camel Creek is one of three historically mined projects with combined gold production of 160,000oz at an average of 1.91g/t that make up the company’s North Queensland assets.

It has the potential to outstrip the 154,000oz and 30,000oz resources at the Big Rush and Golden Cup projects respectively due to the size of its gold system.

Previous drilling has already outlined the presence of high-grade zones at the project.
