Sumary of Zuleika unearths broad gold zones near Kalgoorlie:
- Credit: FileShare to FacebookShare to TwitterEmail UsCopy the LinkJunior exploration company, Zuleika Gold has potentially unveiled a broad gold system at its Breakaway Dam prospect near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia with 21 air-core drill holes intersecting gold including a peak 4 metres at 4.3 grams per tonne gold.
- Zuleika launched a 30,000m air-core and reverse-circulation drilling campaign earlier this year where it is targeting six prospects along the Zuleika, Kunanalling and Carnage shears located at its tenure.
- The world-renowned 80-million-ounce Kalgoorlie super pit lies just 30km northwest from Zuleika’s tenement package.
- At the Breakaway Dam prospect, recent drilling was targeting an area identified by Poseidon Nickel in 1989 when 10m at 26.9 g/t gold from 25m was intercepted, including 5m at a bumper 51.3 g/t gold.
- The company reports that 21 of 81 recent air-core holes at the prospect returned elevated levels of gold, with the 4m intercept going 4.3 g/t gold forming part of a broader 10m interval grading 2.1 g/t gold from 40m.
- The company plans to test the areas showing anomalous gold with future reverse circulation drilling.
- Results from another 20 air-core holes at Breakaway Dam remain pending.
- At Credo Well, the company has identified a 2.5-kilometre-long mineralised structure where previous drilling only tested about 1km of the strike.
