  • Initial samples dispatched to laboratory
  • Drilling targeting 340 ppb gold (0.34 g/t gold) gold soil anomaly at surface

White Cliff Minerals Limited (“White Cliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has commenced a 2,000 metre air-core drilling program targeting a large gold anomaly at the Ironstone Gold prospect, part of the Merolia gold project, near Laverton Western Australia.

To date, 1000 metres of drilling has been completed and geological logging of drill rock chips has identified quartz veining in several holes. The samples have been dispatched to the Laboratory for assaying. Results are expected within the next month.

The anomaly occurs 190 metres west of recent and historical drilling that intersected 4 metres at 5 g/t and 0.3 metres at 25 g/t gold.
