Great Southern Mining (GSN) shares are up this morning after finding large gold-copper soil systems at Edinburgh Park Project in north Queensland.

The company has found two significant large soil anomalies at the Leichhardt Creek prospect from recent mapping and geochemical sampling.

GSN recently completed 1554 soil samples and 23 rock chip samples at the prospect.

The results have mapped a vast geochemical alteration system, which is consistent with an intrusive related gold system exhibiting strong associated metal content.

“The analysis of the recently extended soil surveys at Leichhart Creek, at the company’s Edinburgh Park Project, presents compelling evidence of circular metal zonation trends consistent with kilometre-scale intrusive related gold-copper systems,” CEO Sean Gregory said.

“This evidence is backed up with field observations of mineralised
outcrops around the margins of the defined anomalies, especially at Green Ant and the Rocky Ponds Breccia,” he added.

As the wet season is passing, GSN’s geologist will be back in the field next week to further refine the targets. The company is planning on drill testing later on this year.

Additionally, analysis of further soil surveys at nearby prospects is also underway.

On the market this morning, GSN is up 8.77 per cent and is trading at 6.2 cents per share at 11:33 am AEDT.
