The third round of sample results at Global Metals’ Jutson Rocks project in central Western Australia has confirmed 10 new high grade gold anomalies within the site.
There were 269 samples taken in this round of Bulk Leach Extractable Gold (BLEG) tests, with the highest test result showing 37.1ppb gold. This sample was taken from the anomaly area now identified as Rutter. Samples from the other anomalous areas have returned results between 4 and 14ppb gold. The company says these results are encouraging after the first round of drilling confirmed sub-surface gold anomalism of up to 8.38 grams/tonne gold in June.
Global’s managing director Lia Darby says, “I am very pleased that we have doubled the number of gold anomalies discovered at Jutson Rocks. The first scout drilling in the first round of BLEG showed that there is sub-surface gold mineralization directly under the surface gold anomalies.
“We are very confident that we are now revealing a new, previously unknown goldfield in the Jutson Rocks greenstone belt. This level of gold discovery is very exciting and we will only be increasing our exploration efforts following this latest news,” she says.
Jutson Rocks is about 100km northwest of the regional centre of Laverton. Global is also expected to mobilize a drill team to its Mt Venn copper prospect, which is directly south of Jutson Rocks, in coming weeks.
