Final assay results have returned from the 2021 air core program carried out at the Tyrells and Hodges gold prospects within the Silver Swan North Project just north of Kalgoorlie in WA.

Best drilling results include:

  • 7m at 1.59 g/t gold from 14m, including 2m at 2.75 g/t gold from 16m
  • 5m at 1.57 g/t gold from 49m, including 2m at 2.20 g/t gold from 51m
  • 10m at 0.98 g/t gold from 50m and;
  • 1m at 2.47 g/t gold from 28m and 2m at 2.16 g/t from 38m.

Moho’s managing director Shane Sadleir said the company is looking forward to drill testing these areas as a priority in the near future.

“We’re very encouraged by the potential for additional gold mineralisation in the two main zones at Tyrells, north of East Sampson Dam,” he said.

The program located the sources of historical soil and auger anomalies, with the best 4m intervals re-assayed at 1m sub samples while 22 samples recorded gold assays over a 1 g/t and three samples over 3g/t.

At Tyrells, Moho (ASX:MOH) says there is a clear separation into two NNW-trending zones of drill gold anomalism with a combined strike extent of 1.2km.

This anomalism is best developed within the western zone and just to the east of the high magnesium basalt where there appear to be multiple zones of gold anomalism with apparent dips of about 45 to the east.

While at Hodges, significant gold anomalism occurs both within a steep east dipping zone from surface at the ultramafic contact, and also in a flat supergene blanket extending about 160m to west of the contact.

Follow up drilling

These results have focused Moho’s attention on several areas for further drilling, with aircore drilling as a priority to test continuity and strike extensions of the two main mineralised zones at Tyrells.

RC drilling will later test the gold mineralisation below refusal depth of aircore drilling and supergene blanket, following receipt of the next round of aircore drilling results.
