De Grey Mining (DEG) has announced some strong results from a recent bout of resource definition drilling at the Brolga zone of its Mallina Gold Project in WA.

The Brolga zone is part of the wider Hemi prospect in the project area, which was the site of a major gold discovery by De Grey in late-2019.

The gold miner has been taking on resource definition drilling at each of the zones at the Hemi prospect, with results from the Brolga zone released today.

De Grey said wide zones of shallow gold mineralisation were struck in one section of Brolga just 40 metres east of the original discovery section in the area.

The best intersections from this section include a 78-metre hit at 2.8 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold from 33 metres and a 127-metre hit at 2.1 g/t of gold from 34 metres. This second intersection included a 92-metre hit at 2.7 g/t of gold.

Meanwhile, De Grey still has assay results pending for a diamond core hole in this section of Brolga which was drilled to advance detailed metallurgical test work and geotechnical studies for future open-pit mining studies.

This is one of 16 diamond holes being drilled across the Brolga, Aquila, Crow and Falcon zones of the Hemi prospect.

Other results from resource definition in different sections across the Brolga zone include a six-metre hit at 5.8 g/t of gold from 75 metres and three separate intersections in a single hole grading between 1.3 g/t and 7.7 g/t of gold from 114 metres.

De grey Managing Director Glenn Jardine said the results from the resource definition drilling have confirmed the “scale, consistency and endowment” of the Brolga zone.

“The new results also demonstrate Brolga’s amenability to large scale, low strip ratio, open pit mining,” Glenn said.

“The resource definition drilling is being undertaken to support the confidence of the maiden resource for Hemi timed for mid-year.”

At the same time, De Grey is busy taking on extension drilling to the west and south of the Brolga zone, designed to follow up on previous results west of the Brolga area.

Shares in De Grey Mining are up 2.1 per cent at 10:29 am AEST, trading at $1.22 each. The company has a $1.53 billion market cap.
