Vango Mining Limited (ASX: VAN) has drilled further gold intersections from its ongoing open-pit focused drilling campaign drilling at the company’s flagship Marymia Gold Project in the Mid-West region of Western Australia.
The latest results are from the remaining two holes at the Rosella open-pit target.
Results confirm the continuity of the gold structure at depth across the open-pit footprint, and include:
- 2m @ 1.2 g/t Au from 89m in VRORC0002
- 1m @ 2.2 g/t Au from 50m in VRORC0003
- 3m at 2.6 g/t Au from 101m in VRORC0003 incl 1m @ 6.7 g/t Au from 102m
- 1m at 4.0 g/t Au from 54m in VRORC0001
- 3m at 10.0 g/t Au from 80m in VRORC0001 incl. 1m @ 27.0 g/t Au from 80m
- 11m at 4 g/t Au from 83m in VRORC0004 incl. 6m at 6.6 g/t Au from 85m
Rosella is interpreted to be a faulted-off continuation of the adjacent Parrot Open Pit, which may present the potential for large-scale open-pit development and mining across the two open-pits. The gold mineralisation at Rosella is well-defined along a moderately north-west dipping structure within mafics, and near the contact with sediments in places.
Vango’s current drilling has successfully confirmed the continuity of gold mineralisation at depth at Rosella.
Vango is targeting 11 priority open-pits in its 2021 drilling campaign. Drilling is designed to add resources to the substantial existing Marymia resource base, and to deliver ‘critical mass’ to Marymia’s resource base to support a proposed stand-alone mining operation at the Project.
The first phase of drilling in all 11 open pits has now been completed and consisted of 8,914 metres of RC drilling across 56 holes. All results have now been reported from first-phase drilling at the Skyhawk, Parrot, Apollo, Prickleys, Ibis, Exocet and Rosella open pits. Results from drilling at the remaining four open-pits will be progressively released as they become available.
Vango plans to conduct a follow-up, second phase of drilling at all targets that deliver positive results from the completed first round of drilling, to test for further extensions of gold mineralisation to add to the Marymia resource base.
