East Star Resources announces sampling results at Talovskoye Prospect

East Star Resources Plc, which is defining mineral resources in Kazakhstan for the energy revolution, has announced the results from sampling at the Talovskoye prospect on the Rudny Altai Volcanic Massive Sulphide belt in Kazakhstan.

The Talovskoye prospect sits on licence RA1, which is 100% owned by East Star and appears to have many geological similarities to the high-grade current and past producing VMS deposits on the belt.


  • Mapping identifies high-grade Cu/Ag mineralisation only 17 km from the Nikolovskoye processing plant.
  • Samples include:
    • 6.30% Cu, 5.19% Pb, 0.81 g/t Au and >100 g/t Ag
    • 8.44% Cu, >20% Pb, 1.1 g/t Au and > 100 g/t Ag
    • 2.58% Cu, 11.35% Pb, 3.84 g/t Au and >100 g/t Ag
  • Extensive sulphide mineralisation, with outcropping gossans largely obscured under waste from historical small-scale mining.
  • Existing infrastructure and proximity to the Nikolovskoye processing plant offers potential for low-cost development.
  • Further exploration is required on this high-priority target, with drilling planned for 2024.

Alex Walker, East Star CEO, commented:

"The Talovskoye Cu/Ag prospect is shaping up to be another very interesting target within our VMS portfolio. The detailed mapping undertaken this year has informed our geological understanding and strengthened our view that this is a prospect we should be drilling at the nearest opportunity.

Largely covered by waste from small-scale mining and only 17 km by road to the Nikolovskoye processing plant, the Talovskoye prospect has the potential to be a very low-cost development opportunity, should it get to that stage."
