'Significant' gold system confirmed at Gigante Grande

Yesterday morning, the company announced the success of its November 2020 drilling program at its Gigante Grande prospect in Western Australia. Commenting on the results, Resources & Energy Group stated: 

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.
