Today’s news from Australasian Gold
The Australasian Gold share price is surging higher this morning following news about 2 of its projects.
Perhaps the most exciting news is the results of the company’s May Queen Project maiden drilling program.
The drilling program has found evidence of a potential gold-copper porphyry system, with assay results including 6 metres at 1.99 grams of gold per tonne from 35 metres and 1 metre at 9.39 grams of gold per tonne from 68 metres.
Additionally, surface rock chip sampling found up to 2.66 grams of gold per tonne and 3.43% copper at the project.
Australasian Gold will now complete more geophysical surveys to define potential silica enriched areas with possible disseminated sulphides. The survey’s results will help a follow-up reverse circulation drilling program that’s set to begin in the coming months.
The company also announced that it plans to begin exploration at its Mt Peak Lithium Project on Sunday.
Four geologists will begin conducting surface and rock chip sampling after satellite image investigations highlighted areas with pegmatite outcrops within the project.
