- PNX Metals (PNX) says the latest results from the Fountain Head Gold Project have intersected further high-grade gold
- Significantly, gold was intersected outside the current resource boundary, which highlights new target zones
- A total of 59 holes were drilled between December and February, which was aimed at confirming and supporting the upcoming mineral resource estimate
- The mineral resource estimate is expected to be completed shortly and will be used to inform pit design and proposed mine schedules
- PNX is up 7.14 per cent and shares are trading for 0.8 cents each
PNX Metals (PNX) has received the final assays from its recently completed reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at the Fountain Head Gold Project.
Between December 2019 and February 2020, PNX drilled 59 RC holes at Fountain Head to confirm and provide support to the mineral resource estimate.
These final results have led to increased confidence in the geological model and the project’s economic potential.
Drilling intersected additional high-grade gold intercepts including; two metres at 4.46 g/t gold from 114 metres in FHRC164, two metres at 6.62 g/t gold from 144 metres in FHRC172, and one metre at 12.54 g/t gold from 64 metres in FHRC179.
Significantly, gold was intersected outside the proposed pit-shell and the current resource boundary, which highlights new target zones and potential upside for the project.
As announced in early April, the company identified multiple occurrences of visible gold mineralisation in diamond drill hole FHDD181 over a 35-metre intercept between approximately 145 metres and 180 metres downhole.
This has now been extended by a further eight to 188.14 metres where two further occurrences of visible gold have been logged. This makes 11 in total and extends the intercept to a length of 43.59 metres.
Logging and processing of the diamond drill core (FHDD181) for analysis is now complete, with assay results expected in early June.
Furthermore, PNX will use the results for the upcoming Mineral Resource Estimate, which is expected to be completed shortly. It will then be used to inform pit design and proposed mine schedules to support the first three years of mining.
PNX is up 7.14 per cent and shares are trading for 0.8 cents each at 11:50 am AEST.
