  • High Grade Gold In Soil Anomaly identified at Burtville Prospect
    • Peak anomaly > 42,100 ppb gold or 42.1 g/t gold at surface
    • 250m by 185 metres > 25 ppb

White Cliff Minerals Limited (“White Cliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that a bullseye gold in soil anomaly has been identified at the Burtville East gold prospect, part of the Merolia gold project, near Laverton Western Australia.

The soil anomaly occurs at surface and extends over 250 by 185 metre area in a roughly NNW orientation. The maximum gold values are 42,100 ppb (42.1 g/t) and 886 ppb (0.88 g/t gold) which occur adjacent to the edge of mullock dumps or ore stockpiles. There is also a large anomalous zone +100 ppb extending 150 by 75 metres and an outer halo of 250 by 185 metres of +25 ppb gold values.

Managing Director Todd Hibberd commented that “The Merolia soil geochemical sampling program keeps delivering substantial gold in soil anomalies and the Burtville East gold anomaly is even better that the recently announced anomalies at Ironstone and Comet Well. We now have two bullseye anomalies to drill test as well as the 2.7 kilometres long Comet Well anomaly. Further work will focus on preparing the required approvals for drilling for late 2016 or early in 2017.
