- DevEx Resources (DEV) hits shallow gold at its Nangus Road prospect within its Junee copper-gold project in New South Wales
- The latest round of air-core and diamond drilling has returned up to 27.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and also included an eight metre intersection at 1.1 g/t gold
- Following air-core results earlier this year which returned four metres at 5.9 g/t, DEV says it is beginning to see a clear north-south gold-copper trend at Nangus Road
- The company is now planning to follow up the results with reverse circulation drilling
- Company shares last traded at 33.5 cents on June 6
DevEx Resources (DEV) has seen shallow gold intercepts following reconnaissance drilling at its Nangus Road prospect.
The prospect is situated within the company’s Junee copper-gold project in New South Wales.
Wide-spaced reconnaissance drilling comprising both air-core and diamond drilling has identified near-surface gold mineralisation with grades of up to 27.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold across one metre from 142 metres down hole.
Drilling also hit an eight metre intersection grading 1.1 g/t from 40 metres down hole.
The latest results follow air-core drilling completed earlier this year which returned four metres at 5.9 g/t.
Although the drilling program is ongoing and there are assay results yet to be received, the company’s Managing Director Brendan Bradley said the intercepts so far show a one-kilometre-long north-south trend.
“We are excited to see significant shallow gold intercepts starting to show a clear
north-south gold-copper trend at Nangus Road,” Mr Bradley said.
“These results, together with the presence of a large hydrothermal system, demonstrate excellent potential to host significant mineralisation.”
DevEx is now planning reverse circulation drilling to follow up the results.
