Gold nuggets and soil anomalies hint at undiscovered gold bonanza at Comet Well

23 September 2016


  • Significant gold values identified in Comet Well soil samples
    • Peak anomaly > 2600 ppb gold or 2.6 g/t gold at surface
    • Anomalous zone 2.7 kilometres long

White Cliff Minerals Limited (“White Cliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that substantial gold in soil anomalies has been identified along the Comet Well gold trend near Laverton in Western Australia.

The anomalies contain a maximum gold value of 2600 ppb (2.6 g/t) but are more commonly 20-50 ppb gold with several samples greater than 100ppb. The anomalies extend along approximately 2.7 kilometres of strike and in places are up to 200-400 metres wide. The mineralisation recognised in this region consists of multiple sub-vertical quartz reefs that contain visible gold as evidenced by gold nuggets recovered from quartz veins at surface.

Managing Director Todd Hibberd commented that “It is very satisfying that the soil geochemical program has identified so many new substantial gold anomalies. There are still large areas of the project to test north, south and parallel to the current results. We plan to drill test the main targets including the adjacent bullseye Ironstone gold target in late 2016 or early in 2017”.
