  • Peak anomaly 340 ppb gold or 0.34 g/t gold at surface
  • Large 240 metres by 180 metre zone
  • Second +30 ppb gold anomaly identified

White Cliff Minerals is pleased to report that the infill sampling has expanded the bullseye gold in soil anomaly identified at the Ironstone gold prospect near Laverton Western Australia.

The soil anomaly occurs at surface and extends over 240 by 180 metre area. The maximum gold value is 340 ppb (0.34 g/t) which occurs within a halo of +100ppb gold values.

A second +30ppb gold anomaly has also been identified 350 metres further west. This new anomaly is open to the west, north and south and requires further sampling to define its extent.

Managing Director Todd Hibberd commented that “The Merolia gold project just keeps delivering significant gold anomalies.

The identification of the second gold anomaly at Ironstone suggests that the whole region is prospective for quartz reef related gold mineralisation.

The Company will conduct further soil sampling of the Ironstone gold trend in October with a view to drilling late in 2016 or early in 2017.”
