Results from Geological Logging

Encouraging results showing alteration and other strong indicatiors for gold mineralisation were observed during geological logging. In addition to the pervasive alteration previously observed at the YaN18 target, substantial alterations were identified at subsequent targets, including YaN14.

Drill hole JSA20_293 at target YaN14 recorded a 9-metre long intercept consisting of 3-5% stockwork quartz veining along with 5-10% ferruginous veinlets, interpreted as oxidised sulphides. Notably, gold mineralisation at Jundee and Bronzewing is closely associated with sulphides and quartz veining.

Goals set for 2021

Avenira has prepared a work plan for the next two quarters on the basis of initial findings from the drilling campaign. The Company has divided the work program in 2 quarters, as shown below:
