High Grade Assays at Target 14

Musgrave’s AC drilling extended gold anomalism at Target 14 to more than 3 kilometres strike length. Target 14 forms part of a new 7-kilometres long gold corridor situated 900 metres west of Lena and remains open to the south and down dip. 

There remains 2.5 kilometres of strike between Big Sky and Target 14 with drilling results awaited. Musgrave indicated that target areas host little to no historical basement drilling along the new gold corridor due to being obscured by 1-4 metres of transported hardpan clays.
