Diamond drill holes LPDD01 and LPDD02 at the Lone Pine Gold Project have been completed with samples dispatched and results expected within 4 weeks.
Assay result of 16.25 g/t Au returned in rock chip sample from old shallow prospecting pit 120m along strike of the known northeast extent of the Lone Pine vein zone.
The highly anomalous rock chip sample lies within Target T2a identified by photogeological mapping with other identified targets further to the northeast and southeast along the vein zone. Follow-up will commence on the remaining target areas.
The Lone Pine vein zone can now be traced over a total strike length of 600m, with further exploration mapping and sampling aimed at extending the strike to the NE and SW.
Due diligence on the King Solomon Mine data is ongoing
As part of the exploration program and the initial scoping of drilling rig access, Hawkstone also collected 5 rock chip samples with 16.25 g/t Au returned from an old prospecting pit 120m northeast of the known northeast extent of the Lone Pine vein zone. The highly anomalous rock chip sample lies within Target T2a identified by photogeological mapping, with other identified targets lying further to the northeast and southeast of the vein zone. Follow-up of the remaining targets areas has commenced.
Hawkstone Mining Managing Director, Paul Lloyd, commented: “The ongoing exploration including drilling continues to enhance the exploration potential of the project. We are eagerly awaiting results from the first 2 diamond drill holes and channel sampling from the 2 trenches, with further holes currently being drilled.”
