  • There were strong indications of shearing, alteration and veining in 9 of the 12 holes drilled at Yidby Road Prospect.
  • Mineralisation and veining were observed in all holes at Delaney Well and Cashen’s Find Prospects.
  • Massive quartz-carbonate veining up to 35m in down-hole width was intersected.

Significant Observations From Drilled Prospects

Yidby Road Prospect

  • 12 holes were drilled with the deepest being 160m.
  • The drill holes included YBRC001 to YBRC012 for an aggregate of 1,225m.
  • Holes typically encountered a 10m to 20m thick layer of pisolitic transported material, and then through weathered in-situ bedrock and clay saprolite down to ~ 40-50m.


Cashen’s Find Prospect

  • Cashen’s Find is ~ 1.8km to the north of Yidby Road.

Yidby Gold Project RC Drilling Overview

Owing to the contractor availability delay, initial progress was slow to moderate with average daily penetration of ~100m, and drill holes were collared at -60 degrees dip. The azimuth of holes was towards the east and west.

Samples were taken as composites of 3m or 4m with 1m splits. Besides, they were also collected where veining, alteration, and/or metal sulphide mineralisation was present.

The Company collected and sent 777 samples to NAGROM Laboratories for multi-element analysis. Of the total samples, 301 were 1m splits with the rest being the 4m or 3m composites.

On the ASX, SRN quoted $ 0.029 a share on 6 November 2020. The Company is scheduled to conduct its 2020 Annual General Meeting on 23 November 2020 in Perth.
