    Dateline hits ‘high grade’ gold from underground drilling at Colorado project

    Dateline Resources (ASX: DTR) has reported a series of ‘high grade’ gold intersections from underground drilling at its Gold Links Gold Project in Gunnison County, Colorado.

    Current work, which forms part of a 4,000m drill program, is tasked with testing extensions of a mineralised section of the 2150 vein known as the Discovery Zone. Exploration at the target, which was previously drilled between 1975 and 1985, has been expanded from 10 to 13 holes, with highlight results from five of the initial holes including:

    • Hole CRG21-028: 1.0m @ 11.78g/t Au & 40.8g/t Ag; including
      • 0.45m @ 25.89g/t Au and 40.8g/t Ag
    • Hole CRG21-032: 2.0m @ 8.54g/t Au & 13.3g/t Ag; including
      • 0.1m @ 94.34g/t Au and 89g/t Ag
      • 0.3m @ 14.61g/t Au and 17.38g/t Ag

    Speaking on the results, Dateline Resources Managing Director Stephen Baghdadi said “The 2150 vein at the Gold links continues to return results in line with our overall expectations and understanding of it. These two results confirm continuity of the mineralisation both up-dip and to the south of previous drill intercepts including the Discovery zone.

    This section of the 2150 vein is shaping up as another target for mining in the near term. We will now focus our drilling on extending this area deeper and to the north.”

    Dateline notes that the underground drilling program is designed to support the planned commencement of commercial production at Gold Links, which has delivered historical production of over 150,000 ounces of gold.

    Plans are underway to delineate sufficient Mineral Resources at the project to support a small, high-grade operation in the short term.

    Moving forward, drilling contractors will complete 13 holes at the current station before moving inside the 120m-long section of the development in order to explore extensions of the Discovery Zone. The new location will facilitate deeper drilling to the north and south of the target.
