Namdini Drilling Intersects 184m at 2.0g/t Au
Cardinal's CEO/MD, Archie Koimtsidis said:
"The infill results confirm mineralised consistency within the deposit whilst the southern extension drilling demonstrates that the mineralised corridor extends along strike a further 150m to the south.
"Our Maiden Mineral Resource was initially estimated to a depth of 350m and our recently reported down dip step-out holes have confirmed mineralisation down to 600m. All of these extensions will be captured in our Mineral Resource upgrade expected in late Q3 2017.
"We have nine drill rigs on site with the main objective to accelerate the infill and extension drilling programmes which are expected to convert the current Inferred Mineral Resources into higher categories and increase the overall size of the current resource."
Discussion of Results
The Company is encouraged with these early results which show strong continuity of mineralised zones within the defined resource.
Extensional drilling to the south indicate that the Namdini mineralised corridor continues.
Cardinal will explore the continuation of the Namdini shear as mineralisation may extend to the south.
The Company is anticipating a steady stream of drill results to continue from the infill and extensional drilling programs. These results will form the basis for a Mineral Resource upgrade in size and category towards the end of Q3 2017.
