Kentor Gold’s drilling programme at Gabanintha prospect within the Murchison Gold Project in Western Australia has yielded significant mineralisation in targeted areas.
An initial RC drilling of Helitem exploration target at Gabanintha has intersected good grades and a new zone of mineralisation adjacent to the Yagahong North deposit.
Drilling on Kentor’s granted mining lease M51/836 was designed to test for extensions to the Yagahong North copper-gold mineralisation.
The RC drilling recorded a best assay of 2m at 32.15g/t Au and 1.6% Cu from 73m in hole 12GBRC0014.
Kentor Gold said the mineralisation is hosted in weakly sheared mafic rocks with quartz veining and silicification.
Hole 12GBRC0003, where 4m at 0.60g/t Au from 140m and 4m at 2.74g/t Au from 148m were intersected, was terminated at 153m and it is intended to reoccupy the hole and extend the hole beyond the zone of mineralisation.
The next drilling programme will involve additional drilling up-dip and along strike to test mineralisation is hosted in weakly sheared ultramafic lithologies and quartz veining.
The 90km² Gabanintha tenements comprise one mining lease, three exploration licences, nineteen prospecting licences and one mining lease application.
The Gabanintha project consists of six deposits, namely Tumblegum, Canterbury, Terrells, Yagahong, Kavanagh and Golden Hope North.
