Regional Exploration Drilling advances well

During the quarter, Musgrave has been mainly focussed on regional exploration on its wholly-owned tenure at Cue. 

The program has continued to define strong gold mineralisation across multiple targets, with best results received at high priority Target 14, White Heat and Big Sky Prospects. All targets have been characterised by encouraging near-surface gold mineralisation, driving the Company to kick off with resource definition drilling at Big Sky and White Heat.

White Heat Prospect

White Heat is located 300m south of Break of Day, a high-grade gold deposit on the Cue Project. The prospect has a strike extent of approximately 70m and is open down plunge. The Company received high-grade results from the three diamond holes completed at White Heat. 

New significant drill results from White Heat prospect include:

  • 6.8m @ 17.8g/t Au from 47m (21MODD019)
  • 3.4m @ 107.6g/t Au from 74.6m (21MODD019)
  • 8.4m @ 6.8g/t Au from 27.3m (21MODD018)
