The main mineralised zones occur within tourmaline breccias with abundant sulphide.  Notable intersections include 0.5m at 9.86g/t Au and 1.5m at 5g/t Au in hole 17-FB-01 and 12.5m at 1.06g/t Au including 2m at 5.5g/t Au contained within.  The gold mineralisation is also related to the sulphide present throughout the country rock.  This is supported by Hole 3 which also confirmed gold in the country rock but of low grade.  The final results of hole 4 and 5 are expected in December.

Managing Director Gavin Berkenheger commented: “We are delighted to report the discovery of multiple gold bearing structures at greater depths than previously identified.   This proves continuity of high grade gold mineralisation at the Fore Burn Project and provides targets for follow up drilling.”
