Meeka Gold (ASX:MEK) has reported broad zones of gold mineralisation at its Turnberry South prospect in the Murchison region of Western Australia.
The company’s phase 2 drilling program targeted a high-grade zone of mineralisation at Turnberry South, directly below the planned open pit outlined in the Meeka’s 2021 Murchison Gold Project Scoping Study which proposed an initial 443,000 ounce production plan.
Initial results include 13m @ 2.18g/t gold from 219m, including 4m @ 3.87g/t. The company says samples for 36 holes remain outstanding due to an industry wide issue with assay turnaround times.
Meeka Gold CEO Tim Davidson said drilling would be ongoing during 2022 and the company looked forward to updating shareholders over the coming months.
The latest drilling results confirm the continuity of the eastern zone of mineralisation at depth.
“We have strong conviction that the Fairway trend, which extends over 5km from
Turnberry to St Anne’s, is a large mineralised system that has yet to reveal its true
endowment,” said Mr Davidson.
“Our team has started to demonstrate this, and pleasingly the results
released in this announcement support this view, confirming thick, high-grade
mineralisation at depth below the planned open pit at Turnberry South.”
Diamond drilling was paused over Christmas and recommences today to test the depth potential of the high-grade zone.
Meeka Gold was down 2.44 per cent at $0.04 per share at Tuesday’s close.
