Recent Drilling Success at Starlight

The assays for the reverse circulation drilling have returned high-grade gold results at the Starlight link lode at Musgrave’s 100% owned Break of Day. Thirteen holes for 2,490 metres were drilled as the part of the RC drilling program. The composite assays for all have been reported. 

The testing of the new high-grade link-lode primarily drove the drilling. Mineralisation over a strike length of more than 100 metres open to the west and down-dip has been intersected at the Starlight link-lode. 

Moreover, the one-metre resampling of 6-metres composites has further confirmed the high-grade mineralisation at the deposit, enhancing the gold-prospects for the Western Australia based Company. 

Significant Intercepts include:

  • 42m @ 6.8g/t Au (20MORC018), including 4m @ 65.9g/t Au
  • 42m @ 5.6g/t Au (20MORC013), including 5m @ 12.6g/t Au and 5m @ 32.2g/t Au
  • 6m @ 55.8g/t Au (20MORC012)


Notably, at the Break of Day’s Deposit, a southern extension of high-grade mineralisation to the Twilight lode was also recently identified during the March quarter. The significant intercepts include:

  • 3m @ 118.4g/t Au (20MORC001)
  • 2m @ 7.8g/t Au (20MORC002)
