Broad zones of mineralisation have been returned from recent reverse circulation drilling at Meeka Gold’s St Anne’s prospect, delivering a stellar 24m at 4.81 g/t gold result, including 4m at 20.30 g/t.
Other key drilling results include 36m at 1.02 g/t gold from 24m, including 8m at 2.35 g/t gold, 8m at 2.66 g/t gold from 104m, including 1m at 16.45 g/t gold and 4m at 1.22 g/t gold from 52m.
All new intersections sit along strike of previously released drilling results from St Anne’s, such as 3m at 13.82 g/t gold from 103, including 1m at 31.20 g/t gold.
The St Anne’s prospect, forming part of the company’s Murchison Gold Project in Western Australia, is around 3.34km south of the Turnberry deposit, which hosts a 610,000-ounce gold mineral resource.
It does not have a reported mineral resource; however, the company believes these results are “extremely positive” and support further exploration drilling – set to begin in February.
Meeka Gold (ASX:MEK) chief executive officer Tim Davidson said the results continue to support the view that the highly prospective Fairway trend extending over 5km from Turnberry in the north to St Anne’s in the south, holds significant mineral endowment yet to be fully demonstrated.
“We now have mineralisation identified at St Anne’s over a strike length of 500m,” he said.
“We plan to follow up on today’s results with further drilling along strike to the north and south, commencing in February.”
These latest results account for 6 of the 8 holes drilled at St Anne’s during phase 2, with Meeka awaiting the results for the final two holes.
