Longer, thicker and deeper: Phase 2 drilling at Woyla’s Rek Rinti deposit confirms copper-gold extensions
Special Report: After uncovering high-grade gold and silver at its Rek Rinti prospect, Far East Gold has now confirmed down-dip extensions within the Pertamina vein and Agam zone across >700m, which includes the bonanza grade results of 81g/t gold in hole AGM007.
With 242.6km of tenure in Indonesia’s Aceh region, Far East Gold’s (ASX:FEG) 51%-owned Woyla copper-gold project is shaping up to be quite the find, which had seen previous exploration work by majors Barrick Gold and Newcrest Mining.
However, the company managed to one-up both of the big players by securing approval to carry out advanced exploration activities – including drilling – at the project.
This has paid off in spades with high-grade intercepts of up to 81g/t gold and 1,359g/t silver intersected recently at Rek Rinti’s Pertama Vein, which is shown to be highly mineralised.
Longer, thicker and deeper mineralisation has now been discovered from Phase 2 drilling assays at Rek Rinti, extending the ‘sweet spot’ zone of high-grade gold and silver mineralisation identified in drill holes RRD019 and RRD020 by an additional 100m down-dip within the Pertama vein.
Best results include:
These have indicated ~150m of vertical extension of the high-grade mineralisation and the potential for additional intersections as they remain open to the southwest.
Other targets recently tested as part of Phase 2 include an IP chargeable geophysical anomaly in the northwest area of the prospect which has been tested in holes RRD024 and RRD025.
FEG is continuing to evaluate areas of low magnetics along the trend of known veins at depth and along strike.
