  • 1 metre at 41.6 g/t gold from 34-35 metres within 3 metres at 14.3 g/t gold

White Cliff’s Aucu gold project is starting to deliver some serious gold results!

The Company is drilling a quartz reef that is exposed at surface and contained visible gold in hand specimen. The latest drilling results show that the quartz reef has both depth and strike continuity. Drilling is ongoing and grades the Company is pleased to report additional visible gold intersections from recent drill holes at Quartz Zone and the Eastern Gold Zone within the Aucu Gold project.

Visible gold was panned from interval 13-14 metres in drill hole ERC16-31 which was drilled adjacent to the outcropping quartz vein containing visible gold at the eastern end of the upper gold zone (reported in ASX Release 29-08-2016). Drill assays included 1 metre at 25.6 g/t gold within 3 metres at 9.8 g/t gold.

In addition, visible gold has also been panned from drill hole ERC16-32 which intersected the mineralised quartz vein at interval 34-35 metres depth on the same drill line. Drill assays included 1 metre at 41 g/t gold within 3 metres at 14.3 g/t gold.
