Sunshine Gold (SHN) has received the final batch of results from drilling at two prospects within the Triumph Project in Queensland.

This 7126-metre reverse circulation (RC) drilling program targeted several prospects within the gold project. However, today’s results are from the Big Hans and Super Hans prospects.

Seven holes were drilled at Big Hans which have returned high-grade results including four metres at 11.53g/t gold from 69 metres and two metres at 9.56g/t gold from 63 metres.

Pleasingly, drilling led to mineralisation extending to over 240 metres of strike and is open in all directions.

“Sunshine Gold has now extended the Big Hans high-grade core of mineralisation over 200 metres of strike, to depths of 150 metres and significantly the system remains open in all directions,” Managing Director Damien Keys said.

Sunshine Gold drilled six holes at the Super Hans prospect to define a high-grade core to mineralisation.

This prospect also returned positive results which include three metres at 3.15g/t gold from 69 metres and two metres at 2.66g/t gold from 71 metres.

The company plans to use these findings to continue drilling at Super Hans, Big Hans and at the previously drilled New Constitution South prospect.

“This successful step-off drilling campaign provides a great platform to aggressively pursue maiden resource opportunities in follow up drilling planned in the September 2021 quarter,” Damien concluded.

Company shares are down 7.27 per cent and are trading at 5.1 cents at market close.
