A mineral resource at Agate Creek forecasts it to hold 8.2 million tonnes at a grade of 1.46 grams per tonne of gold for 381,000 ounces. However, an updated resource estimate is underway to account for the new discoveries.
The 42 holes drilled covered 2244 metres and the 17 which have returned results account for 1002 metres. In its release to the market today, Laneway detailed “initial analysis shows potential for additional tonnes to be mined in the near term.”
The company fully owns Agate Creek and remains focused on completing the required analysis so it can form detailed pit designs for mining planning. Laneway also intends to use historical data to assist in choosing targets.
