Alto’s Shares Surged On ASX Post Exploration Update For Ladybird Prospect By The Company


Alto Metals Limited (ASX: AME) is into the exploration of gold in Australia. The company has two subsidiary companies, Sandstone Exploration Pty Ltd and Cue Metals Pty Limited. The company primarily focuses on the discovery and acquisition of projects which are highly profitable and provides high returns to its shareholders.

On 30 January 2019, the company has highlighted the drill results from Ladybird prospect as follows:

Drilling of 5-meter hole from a previous 8-meter depth which resulted in 29.4g/tonne of Gold from MSGC1162, drilling of 4-meter hole from a previous 42-meter depth which resulted in 7.3g/tonne of Gold from HKR006, drilling of 5-meter hole which resulted in 5.6g/tonne of Gold from TRC018, drilling of 3-meter hole from a previous 12-meter depth which resulted in 8.5g/tonne of Gold from TRC010, drilling of 5-meter hole from a previous 10-meter depth which resulted in 4.9g/tonne of Gold from MSGC1387, drilling of 5-meter hole from a previous 36-meter depth which resulted in 4.6g/tonne of Gold from MSGC1385, drilling of 5-meter hole from a previous 67-meter depth which resulted in 4.1g/tonne of Gold from MSGC1123, drilling of 4-meter hole from a previous 49-meter depth which resulted in 5.1g/tonne of Gold from HKR017 and drilling of 3-meter hole from a previous 21-meter depth which resulted in 6.5g/tonne of Gold from MSGC1122.  

Further, the shallow high-grade gold mineralization exists at the Ladybird Prospect as per the compilation and review of previous explorer’s data. Although the mineralized zone is relatively narrow and steeply dipping, the grade and continuity of mineralization suggest that the deposit could be responsive to open-pit mining in its upper reaches.

The company has commissioned Dr. Spero Carras of Carras Mining Pty Ltd to prepare a JORC (2012) Mineral Resource Estimate for the Ladybird deposit, which would be completed in February 2019. Further reverse circulation drilling is planned to test for along strike and down-dip extensions to the mineralization which could potentially expand the mineralized zone.
