Dacian Gold (DCN) has reported an indicated mineral resource for its recently acquired Redcliffe Project following a resource definition drilling effort.

The company executed 17 diamond drill holes and one reverse circulation pre-collar with a diamond drill tail for 3489 metres ahead of further mining studies.

The campaign has resulted in an indicated mineral resource of 530,000 tonnes at 4.7 grams of gold per tonne for 80,000 ounces and a total updated Hub mineral resource estimate of 1.1 million tonnes at 3.9g/t for 139,000 ounces.

Hub is located in the southern Redcliffe tenements located approximately 80 kilometres from the Mt Morgans processing plant.

Broadly, the company said the results have improved its geological understanding of the project.

Dacian Gold Managing Director Leigh Junk said the upgrade was an excellent result for the company.

“We are continuing with this work across all of the other Redcliffe mineral resources ahead of our upcoming life-of-mine plan with the goal of diversifying our production and improving our operational flexibility from this second mining centre,” he said.

Dacian Gold shares are down 1.82 per cent and trading at 27 cents at 2:52 pm AEST.
