- Drilling at the high-grade zinc - silver - lead - gold Dry Creek VMS deposit at the Company's Red Mountain Project in central Alaska has successfully intersected massive sulphide mineralisation over 200 metres down-dip from previous drilling.
- This drilling achieved the deepest intersection in the Dry Creek deposit and indicates a steeper dip to mineralisation than first interpreted, suggesting the deposit remains wide open down dip along its entire 1,200 metre strike length.
- Previous drilling at Dry Creek tested the deposit to a depth of 200 metres. The success of a 200 metre plus down-dip step out drill hole suggests considerable potential for the deposit to grow in size and tonnes.
- Fixed loop EM geophysics at the Cirque Prospect at Red Mountain has identified a clear conductive horizon. Conductance is low which may be consistent with a VMS horizon containing sphalerite (a zinc sulphide with poor conductivity).
- Funding contributed by Sandfire Resources as a part of their JV earn-in for the Red Mountain exploration program increased by A$2M to a total of A$8M for 2019.
- The Company launched a non-renounceable entitlement offer to raise A$5.4M to advance the permitting and DFS for its gold and silver project at Mt Carrington in northern New South Wales.
