Hyland Geological and Mining Consultants (HGMC) has updated the bulk density estimations for the Bottle Creek mineralised ore zones known as the "Emu Formation" including the Emu, Southwark, Cascade, VB and Boags deposits. The newly upgraded Global Resource Estimates can be seen in Table 1* with the Measured and Indicated Resource Estimate shown in Table 2*.

The current Resource upgrade at Bottle Creek further strengthens the Company's development strategy for the Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Projects. Importantly, the resource upgrade provides a significant increase in the Measured and Indicated JORC categories of approximately 14%.

The Company's successful growth strategy and commitment to undertake and deliver quality resource and exploration drilling results demonstrate a continued commitment to the development and expansion of the Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Project.


The current updated Mineral Resource has been completed by Mr Stephen Hyland, principal resource geologist of Hyland Geological and Mining Consultants (HGMC). It incorporates all drilling undertaken by Alt Resources on all project areas including the six granted mining leases (Figure 2*) up to the 19th December 2019, as well as historical drilling conducted by Electrolytic Zinc Company and Norgold Ltd between 1984 and 1989. The combined drill hole dataset total is 76,714 metres of RC and diamond drilling. Tables 1 and 2* provides the summary Mineral Resource Estimates for the Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Project.

The Mineral Resource Estimate contained in this report is an upgrade to the current gold and silver Resource for Alt Resources Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Project, published 10th February 2020. The Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Projects are brownfields projects that have not been mined since 1989.
