Recent exploration, focused on Target Area 4, has confirmed the presence of high-grade gold, silver, bismuth, copper, and lead mineralisation where rock sampling has taken place.  

Assays of up to 1.89g/t gold, 589g/t silver, 1.85% bismuth, 8.95% copper and 2.13% lead have been returned on mineralised outcrop and sub-crop as Great Northern Minerals (ASX:GNM) continues advancing towards drilling.

At this stage, Native Title clearance has been completed by representatives of the Gugu Badhun People who cleared the areas of planned access roads and drill pads for the initial Douglas Creek drilling program.

An earthmoving contractor is mobilising to site to begin developing the proposed wet weather access track route from the Kilclooney homestead and the design for an initial reverse circulation (RC) drill program has also wrapped up.

The program will consist of 13 holes for 1,100m testing Target Areas One, Two, and Four. 

Drilling to begin in November

“We are making good progress at this exciting greenfield discovery,” managing director and CEO Cameron McLean says.

“Exploration activities continue to deliver exciting results, with mapping and sampling of Target Area 4 defining an extensive area of high-grade mineralisation.

“Drilling is scheduled to start mid-November with weather permitting, and I look forward to the results of the program.”

Ground mapping, sampling and remote sensing activities are continuing across the site.
