Superior Resources (SPQ) is set to begin a second drilling program at the Steam Engine Gold Deposit in Queensland next month.

This program follows on from the recently completed 3756 metre reverse circulation (RC) drilling program which returned strong gold intersections.

Best results from the program include five metres at 4.1g/t gold from 35 metres including one metre at 12.7g/t gold, and six metres at 2.7g/t gold from 71 metres including two metres at 5.7g/t gold from 73 metres.

This second program will consist of 3000 metres of RC drilling and aims to increase the current mineral resource of 1.27 million tonnes at 2.3g/t gold for 94,000 ounces.

Superior Resources will be drilling at the high-grade extension zones identified in previous drilling as well as infill drilling in key areas.

The company will aim to identify new high-grade extensions at the Steam Engine and Eastern Ridge lodes.

"Following the better than expected performance of the first program, we are eager to continue drilling at Steam Engine," Managing Director Peter Hwang said.

"Whilst the results received to date are more than sufficient to enable completion of our scoping study, launching the second drill program brings forward our focus on expanding the current mineral resources, which potentially increases the scale of any early mining operation," he said.

"This is an exciting period for the company as we approach a series of milestones that have the potential to underpin our ambition of realising substantial value for the company and its shareholders," he added.

Superior is up a healthy 22.7 per cent with shares trading for 1.4 cents each at 1:19 pm AEDT.
