The survey was carried out in late July and was a direct follow-up to highly encouraging gold intercepts returned from reverse circulation ("RC") and Air-core ("AC") drilling completed in March and June 2019 (Figure 2). The RC drilling included high grades up to 1m @ 47.96g/t Au (from 36m downhole) within shallow palaeochannel sediments and broad primary intercepts within altered porphyry rocks at depth including 15m @ 0.95g/t Au (from 80m downhole) with 8m @ 1.16g/t Au (from 100m downhole).
The AC drilling returned multiple bottom of hole intercepts in bedrock covering an area of approximately 200m in diameter including 5m @ 2.44g/t Au (40m downhole at bottom of hole).
Yandal Resources' Managing Director; Mr Lorry Hughes commented:
"The first pass SAM survey appears to have delineated coincident structural and conductive targets in a number of positions along strike from gold mineralisation intersected in reconnaissance style drilling. SAM is a geophysical technique that allows for the simultaneous high definition mapping of both the magnetic and electrical properties in the ground and it is well suited to overcome the difficulties of highly conductive surface layers such as those contained in salt lake environments which occur in the Gordons prospect area.
The new targets confirm the highly prospective mineral potential of the Gordons Dam prospect and the Company is advancing approvals and conducting preparatory activities ahead of RC drill testing in September".
