Mineral Resource for the Spargos Reward Gold Deposit
- 2012 JORC Code compliant Indicated and Inferred Resource of 1.01Mt @ 3.9g/t gold (126Koz gold)
- Spargos Reward lies on a granted Mining Lease held by Corona Minerals (65%) and Mithril (35%)
Spargos Reward is located 30 kilometres west of Kambalda, WA (see Figure 1 in the link below) and lies within M15/1828 which is held in a Joint Venture between Corona (65%) and Mithril (35%).
Gold mineralisation at Spargos Reward occurs within a sub-vertical zone of strong shearing and alteration (quartz - pyrite - arsenopyrite) at the contact between felsic volcaniclastics and quartz biotite schists and has been historically mined to a vertical depth of 120 metres (via underground and open pit) with total production of approximately 29,260 ounces @ 8g/t gold.
The new mining depleted Mineral Resource estimate was prepared using a mixture of validated historical drilling data and recent Corona drilling data (85 drill holes for 13,176 metres of combined Reverse Circulation and Diamond drilling) over a strike length of 300 metres and from surface (420m RL) to an approximate depth of 500 metres (-50mRL).
A summary report prepared by Al Maynard and Associates Pty Ltd forms part of this ASX release (refer Appendix), including all required JORC Information.
