The results confirm that Gigante Grande prospect, on the eastern side of the East Menzies Gold field project, is a significant and large gold mineralised system. REZ will continue exploration with a view to expand the prospect and advance towards resource generation.

Among additional highlights, Resources & Energy Group acknowledged over 70 significant intersections of gold mineralisation to date and commencement of the third drill program at Gigante Grande.

Looking forward, a total of 14 holes are planned for the January 2021 program. The program will focus on a combination of shallow and deep holes between the Moriarty Shear Zone and the Gigante Granodiorite.

The current resource estimate totals are 129,000 ounces of gold and 862,000 ounces of sliver.
