Duketon Mining announced today plans to undergo gold drilling in Western Australia.
The plans follow the company’s positive test results at Mckenzie Well. Duketon found down-hole gold grading ranging from 1.6g/t Au to 2.9 g/t Au.
Significant test results came from depths of 20 metres down-hole and some shallow results from two metres down-hole.
Highest grade gold came from surface rock chip drilling, yielding 21.6 g/t Au and 58 g/t Au. Duketon Managing Director Stuart Fogarty says the project will be in the league of surrounding gold projects.
“The project has a nice structural address being on the south-western side of a major north-west trending structure that we know is important in the area,”
“All in all, McKenzie Well has a great structural address with exceptional empirical support in the drilling and the high-grade surface samples,” said Fogarty.
The well is located 5km north of the Erlistoun mine and 4km south-west of Garden Well Mine. The Well project is part of a broader 4.5km program to start in the next two weeks.
