VENDETTA MIN­ING Corp. has pro­vided the last batch of drill re­sults from the 2018 re­source devel­op­ment pro­gram on the Peg­mont lead-zinc project in Queens­land. New zone 3 struc­ture pit high­lights:

• PVRD170: 6.00 me­tres of 11.43 per cent lead plus zinc (8.50 per cent Pb and 2.93 per cent Zn);

• PVD194: 9.02 me­tres of 12.85 per cent Pb plus Zn (9.05 per cent Pb and 3.80 per cent Zn). BHZ/Bridge zone high­lights:

• PVD171: 5.30 me­tres of 9.05 per cent Pb plus Zn (6.60 per cent Pb and 2.46 per cent Zn);

• PVRD191: 4.33 me­tres of 11.97 per cent Pb plus Zn (9.73 per cent Pb and 2.24 per cent Zn).

Michael Wil­liams, Vendetta’s pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, com­mented: “The dis­cov­ery of the new fold struc­ture in the shadow of the planned open pit high­lights the up­side po­ten­tial that re­mains at Peg­mont. The cor­po­rate strat­egy to date has been to fo­cus ef­forts on the devel­op­ment of min­eral re­sources to sup­port a 10-year min­ing in­ven­tory, we an­tic­i­pate the PEA will demon­strate the eco­nomic po­ten­tial of that. We will now start to broaden our ap­proach to Peg­mont, look­ing to iden­tify and test­ing brown­field ex­plo­ration tar­gets, the re­cently com­pleted

map­ping ex­er­cise is the first step to­wards that.”
