Drills High-Grade Extensions At Big Hans Include 4m @ 11.53 g/t Au
Sunshine Gold Limited (ASX:SHN) has identified a number of key follow-up targets through its recently completed drill campaign at the Big Hans and Super Hans prospects at the Triumph Project in Queensland.
Managing Director, Damien Keys, said the 7,126m maiden RC drill campaign has been successful in delineating high-grade targets for follow up Resource drilling in the September 2021 quarter.
The drilling uncovered high-grade extensions to the Big Hans. Target, where mineralisation now extends over 240m of strike and is open in all directions.,
Latest results include: 4m @ 11.53g/t Au from 69m and 2m @ 9.56g/t Au from 63m
The programme also intercepted mineralisation in step off drilling at Super Hans, which has now been delineated over 200m of strike to depths of 80m from surface.
Latest results include: 3m @ 3.15g/t Au from 69m and 2m @ 2.66g/t Au from 71m,
“The maiden drilling campaign at Triumph has been extremely successful,” Mr Keys said.
“Sunshine Gold has now extended the Big Hans high-grade core of mineralisation over 200m of strike, to depths of 150m and significantly the system remains open in all directions. Likewise, Super Hans remains open to the West and at depth.
“The latest drilling has intersected the mineralised structure in broad spaced holes. This successful step-off drilling campaign provides a great platform to aggressively pursue maiden Resource opportunities in follow up drilling planned in the September 2021 quarter.
“This Resource drilling will focus on high- grade centres at Big Hans, Super Hans and New Constitution have been delineated and will form the focus of upcoming resource drilling. We also look forward to commencing our first field programmes at Ravenswood West and the Hodgkinson in coming weeks.”
