Meeka Metals (MEK) has announced shallow, high-grade gold results from Turnberry which is part of the Murchison gold project in Western Australia.

Drilling targeted the Western Flank of Turnberry Central where shallow gold was intersected outside the mineral resource area in previous drilling.

Highlighted results include 32 metres at 3.09 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 32 metres including 20 metres at 4.53 g/t gold, and 12 metres at 3.8 g/t gold from 52 metres including four metres at 10.7 g/t gold.

These assays build on previously reported results, also from outside the mineral resource area. These include 16 metres at 6.67 g/t gold from 20 metres including four metres at 24.1 g/t gold.

The new results extend the gold mineralisation to the north of the mineral resource area in a zone that hasn’t been drill tested and remains open to the north and at depth.

Meeka Metals plans to undertake further drilling to increase strike to the north and extend existing holes.

The company is also progressing a pre-feasibility study (PFS) for the Murchison gold project which it said is tracking well and is on schedule to be released in September.

Managing Director Tim Davidson said the results “highlight the growth opportunity we see at our Murchison gold project.”

“Shallow, high-grade oxide mineralisation added to the mineral resource through this drilling will have a meaningful impact on the robust outcomes of our December 2021 scoping study and will be included in the upcoming PFS.”

Company shares ended the day 1.96 per cent in the red to close at five cents.
