The infill drilling of the San Antonio Inferred Resource is now complete, with final assays pending in January 2021. The drilling program comprised of 167 holes for a total of 37,000 metres.
Assay results have been recently received for 51 drill holes, for a total of 10,600 metres.
Alkane Managing Director, Nic Earner, said these latest intercepts from San Antonia demonstrate that, combined with Roswell, there is sufficient quality and scale to deliver a high-grade pit, close to surface, as the next phase of growth at the Tomingley Gold Project.
“These intercepts confirm we have further high-grade mineralisation close to the surface. Many of the latest intercepts suggest a possible improvement to the published resource model, which would certainly be pleasing. We look forward to bringing shareholders the indicated resource and mine plan soon into the New Year.”
