Discovers High-Grade Gold Shoots And Extends Shear Zone
Rumble Resources Limited (ASX: RTR) is making a noise, unveiling “exciting” results from its ongoing Phase 3 drill programme at the Western Queen Gold Project within the Yalgoo mineral field of Western Australia.
Highlights to date have included:
The Duke Gold Shoot
o New shallow high-grade gold intersections include: 8m @ 26.27 g/t Au from 14m; and 6m @ 25.87 g/t Au from 48m
It has been assessed as a possible analogue to the Western Queen (WQ) Central Open Pit
Western Queen Central
o High-grade gold in main shoot returned: 5m @ 22.12 g/t Au from 280m
o Continuity of deep gold mineralisation returned: 9.71m @ 2.93 g/t Au from 459.3m
o Resource drilling returned strong shallow gold mineralisation including: 5m @ 6.11 g/t Au from 12m, within a broader 21m @ 2.21 g/t Au; 5m @ 4.8 g/t Au from 6m; and 4m @ 5.69 g/t Au from 54m.
Marquis Zone – New Discovery
o New 500m of gold mineralisation defined in WQ Shear Zone to the South of the WQ South Deposit opening up over 5km of strike untested highlighting the potential for multiple new, near surface deposits. This shear zone extension was previously unknown/blind. Significant reconnaissance drilling results include: 4m @ 5.68 g/t Au from 70m, within a broader 12m @ 1.93 g/t Au from 70m; and 3m @ 4.13 g/t Au from 57m.
The company has completed 18776m of Diamond Core, RC and AC drilling for 200 drill holes during this third phase. The total drilling completed by Rumble to date for the three phases at the Western Queen Project is 29880m, for 373 drill holes. The drilling is wholly within M59/45 and M45/208. The drilling total also includes reconnaissance/scout air core drilling and sterilisation drilling of the waste dumps.
Three new shallow south plunging high-grade gold shoots have been inferred at The Duke. The southernmost shoot lies approximately 50m north of the Western Queen Central open pit. High-grade gold mineralisation was intersected at a very shallow depth and likely comes to surface.
• Phase 3 Drilling – Finalise resource drilling at Western Queen South Deposit and Western Princess over coming weeks.
• Phase 4 Drilling – Planning underway to follow up high grade shoots throughout the project, newly discovered Marquis zone and resource expansion. Targets to include: Western Queen Central, The Duke, The Baron, The Baron Deeps, Western Princess, Western Queen South, Marquis and Cranes.
