Alto's WA gold project

Alto Metals extends mineralisation, confirms further ‘high-grade’ gold at Indomitable Camp

Alto Metals (ASX:AME) reports further outstanding near surface ‘high-grade’ gold results from ongoing drilling at the Indomitable Camp, within its 100%-owned Sandstone Gold Project in Western Australia.

Step-out drilling north of the Indomitable North deposit has also extended mineralisation up to 500m north of the current resource and remains open.

Alto reports that mineralisation at Indomitable Camp is hosted within a package of mafic ultramafic rocks, crosscut by interpreted major structures, with ‘higher grade’ gold mineralisation typically observed where the structures intersect the stratigraphy.

Recent drilling has targeted extensions of known mineralisation outside the current resource at Indomitable North and new target areas further north along the same major cross-cutting structures.

New assay results are from one-metre photon assays and relate to 37 RC holes drilled at Indomitable North for a total of 4,682m, drilled on a 40m x 40m spacing to an average downhole depth of 127m.

Significant results reported include multiple, near surface ‘high-grade gold’ that have successfully extended the overall mineralised footprint.

The Indomitable Camp currently has an Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.7Mt @ 1.3 g/t gold for 74,000 ounces (based on an $2,000 pit shell). These resources are shallow and remain open along strike and at depth.

Commenting on the results, Alto’s Managing Director Matthew Bowles said: “These latest shallow high-grade gold results are outstanding, with SRC628 and SRC629 extending mineralisation further north, outside the current resource.

“These latest shallow high-grade gold results are outstanding”

Our systematic approach is continuing to deliver and the ongoing near surface results from Indomitable highlight a very large shallow oxide footprint, which is often the key to finding much larger high-grade gold deposits at depth.

Drilling at Indomitable is ongoing and we look forward to updating shareholders on further results in the coming weeks.”

The Indomitable Camp is hosted within a granted Mining Lease and is located about 15km south-east of the town of Sandstone. It is in close proximity to the Sandstone-Menzies Road. and located less than 20km north-west of the Lords Corridor.
