Superior Gold Inc. has announced further high-grade results from the ongoing underground diamond drill programme at its 100%-owned Plutonic gold mine in Western Australia. The drilling was conducted from late July to late September 2017 and is part of the year-round ongoing programme of underground drilling.
Results are provided for 191 drill holes for a total of more than 13 500 m. The drill holes were completed for resource definition and grade control purposes. Resource definition was designed to increase the confidence level of the resource in areas where drilling was limited. Grade control drilling was completed to provide additional information for stope design ahead of mining.
The drilling focussed on seven zones: Area 134; Caribbean; Caspian; Cortez; Indian; Pacific and Timor. A number of significant intersections were encountered:
- 275 intersections encountered more than 5 g Au/t
- 143 intersections encountered more than 10 g Au/t
- 53 intersections encountered more than 20 g Au/t
Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: "As with our previously released results this year…these results continue to demonstrate the strength of the mineralised system at the Plutonic Gold Mine. We are extremely encouraged by these drill results and continue to work towards increasing the confidence level in the resources. One of our principal goals is to grow the level of underground reserves and to extend the mine life."
