Drilling at Castile Resources (CST) has outlined an additional mineralised zone at the Rover 1 deposit in the Northern Territory.
The deposit is located within the company’s Rover Project, 80 kilometres southwest of Tennant Creek.
CDT said assays from the latest hole at Rover 1 have identified a broad high grade copper zone, intersecting two zones of material gold grades and six individual zones of high-grade copper.
Specifically, intersections included 11 metres at 2.2 per cent copper with 0.9 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) from 571 metres.
Further down at 573 metres, results included 1.8 metres at 5.4 per cent copper with 2.1 g/t gold, 0.1 per cent bismuth and four g/t silver.
In addition to high-grade results reported on July 16, the company said the latest results support its geological and mineralisation model.
Managing Director Mark Hepburn said the company is extremely pleased with the results so far, particularly the location of the additional mineralised zone higher-up the system which could positively impact project economics.
Additionally, Mark is encouraged by the continuity observed between what was originally thought to be seperate pods of mineralisation.
The managing Director said the results have expanded the footprint of the known zones of mineralisation which increases the “scale of the prize”.
Moving forward, the company will continue ongoing exploration and mine planning assessments.
