High-grade gold assay results at Amarillo Prospect

The latest results indicate additional high-grade gold assay results from RC drilling at the prospect.

The latest intersections are beyond the present MRE boundaries and indicate the possibility to further increase the resource base at MGV’s flagship project. Presently, the MRE for the project stands at 927,000 oz of Au.

The latest drill intersections include the following:

MGV has focused on the top 120m within a deep regolith profile through drilling to date and has identified two parallel gold lodes at the prospect. These lodes strike north-south and dip sub-vertically, wherein individual strike length for the western lode and the eastern lode is around 100m and 300m, respectively.

AC drilling delivers new targets

MGV has also announced that new near-surface regolith gold occurrences have been discovered through the initial stage of AC drilling at Amarillo.

The new targets lie within the southern extension of the dolerite unit, which is a host to the high-grade gold mineralisation discovered at West Island. MGV has identified five new targets to date that may represent dispersed gold halos over a basement source.

The latest AC drilling intersections comprise the following:

  • 10m @ 1.2g/t Au from 102m to EOH (22MUAC048)
  • 1m @ 7.1g/t Au from 113m (22MUAC265)
  • 6m @ 1.3g/t Au from 42m (22MUAC094)

MGV looks to conclude the initial phase of the follow-up RC drilling to test these new targets in July.
