EUREKA! TWICE IN A WEEK
Middle Island Resources has made a second gold discovery within a week at the Sandstone project in WA.
The McIntyre prospect is defined by new, shallow drill intercepts including 24m at 1.66g/t, 23m at 1.4g/t and 11m at 1.39g/t.
Middle Island managing director Rick Yeates said McIntyre would complement the project’s mill recommissioning inventory.
“The broad, consistent gold intercepts returned from phase one reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the McIntyre prospect provide further exciting encouragement that the prospect may well prove to represent a second new, low strip ratio, open pit deposit to supplement the planned Sandstone mill recommissioning inventory,” he said.
This followed close on the heels of significant intercepts of 4m at 90.6g/t and 8m at 3.35g/t of gold from the adjacent McClaren prospect in the same week.
The McIntyre, McClaren and Ridge gold prospects are hosted within the southeast extension of the Shillington banded iron formation package, 2.5 kilometres from the Sandstone processing plant.
