  • Musgrave Minerals has kicked off pre-feasibility level studies at Break of Day and Lena deposits.
  • Exploration joint venture with Evolution is advancing on Lake Austin, with diamond drilling underway.
  • An extensive regional aircore drilling program has defined over 7 kilometres long corridor, west of Lena. 

The sustained progress of Musgrave Minerals Limited (ASX:MGV) at the Cue Gold Project continues to beef up resource inventory while the Company systematically tests targets to deliver new discoveries. Over the past few months, the high-grade Cue project has witnessed high-octane activities and success, including explosive growth in Break of Day’s mineral resource and solid drilling results from the regional aircore program.

Advancing its exploration initiatives at a robust pace, Musgrave also kicked off the pre-feasibility (PFS) level studies at Break of Day and Lena deposits, with proven high-grade extensive gold mineralisation. Furthermore, basement drill testing of gold targets at Lake Austin (Evolution Joint Venture) was undertaken to define an extensive gold system.

Break of Day Deposit loaded with a high-grade resource

The mineral resource at Break of Day deposit stands at 797kt @ 10.2g/t Au for 262koz Au. The deposit boasts a high-grade and potential high-margin open cut. It consists of White and Starlight, where drilling proved extremely successful returning high-grade intersections. 

Notably, the Starlight deposit holds 240kt @ 17.0g/t Au for 131koz Au from 3 metres below the surface, and 85% of the Break of Day resource is hosted by five lodes. The potential for repetitions is demonstrated through re-interpretation of the geological model.

The Company’s ongoing focus at the Break of Day is on near-surface high-grade ounces, and PFS level studies have commenced. 

New White Heat Discovery South of Break of Day

New discoveries on the highly prospective Cue project have increased the search space, thereby changing the paradigm of exploration. Significantly, the first pass aircore drilling tested more than 20 regional targets, out of which six intersected high-grade assays.

New White Heat, also known as Target 2, is one such discovery that improves resource growth potential for the Company. The target, which has no historical drilling, returned new high-grade intercepts, including:

  • 4m @ 43.2g/t Au from 98m 
  • 11m @ 19.6g/t Au from 48m 

Target 2 is open down plunge, and the drilling ongoing, with assays, pending. 

7-km Long New Gold Corridor 

An extensive regional aircore drilling program, focused on testing new gold targets, identified anomalous gold in the regolith, thereby defining a new gold corridor west of and parallel to Lena. Aircore drilling has extended the Target 14 gold anomalism to a strike length of more than 3 kilometres.

Target 14 forms part of a new, long gold corridor, which is 7 kilometres long. The target remains open to the south and down dip, and there remains 2.5km of strike between Target 14 and Big Sky, with drilling results pending for over 110 aircore drill holes.
