The find comes in the wake of a poultice of geochemical anomalies from a recently completed reconnaissance auger soil sampling program, which has also added to the prospectivity of the project. The company says rock chip samples collected from limited outcrop exposures of a brecciated quartz vein at Polelle returned up to 4.9 grams per tonne gold.

According to Castle, the veining is closely associated with a structure that splays off to the north of the main Albury Heath Shear and extends for some seven kilometres south onto its largely soil covered Polelle project tenure. It also marks the contact between mafic volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks.

Management says the splay structure is one of several interesting geological features identified by the company’s high-resolution aeromagnetic survey carried out late last year that may be an important vector for unearthing orogenic-style gold mineralisation…
