    Navarre reports ‘exceptional’ gold grades up to 47.2 g/t Au at Crush Creek

    Navarre Minerals (ASX: NML) has announced ‘high-grade’ gold hits from diamond and RC drilling at the Crush Creek Gold Project within its recently-purchased Mt Carlton Operation in North Queensland.

      • Hole DE21RC096: 9.0m @ 11.7 g/t Au from 52m
      • Hole DE21DD101: 5.0m @ 11.7 g/t Au from 119m
      • Hole DE21RC061: 5.0m @ 11.2 g/t Au from 45m, 21m @ 2.0 g/t Au from 56m & 4m @ 9.1 g/t Au from 102m
      • Hole DE21RC094: 4.0m @ 10.4 g/t Au from 84m
      • Hole DE21RC108: 3.0m @ 20.3 g/t Au from 113m

      • Hole B721RC061: 11.0m @ 10.8 g/t Au from 39m
      • Hole B721RC042: 24.0m @ 3.1 g/t Au from 77m
      • Hole B721RC048: 11.0m @ 3.2 g/t Au from 116m
      • Hole B721DD059: 3.0m @ 5.2 g/t Au from 120m & 8.5m @ 3.6 g/t Au from 163m
      • Hole B721DD060: 19.0m @ 4.1 g/t Au from 61m

    The company notes that the drilling was carried out by Evolution Mining prior to purchase of the asset earlier in December, with assay results pending for a further 12 holes at BV7.

    These promising results reinforce our belief that the delineated mineralisation has the potential to significantly extend mine life at Mt Carlton”

    Speaking on the results, Navarre Minerals Managing Director Ian Holland said: “The Company is extremely pleased with the tenor and width of the high-grade gold results being returned from the Crush Creek drilling program. These promising results reinforce our belief that the delineated mineralisation has the potential to significantly extend mine life at Mt Carlton.

    We believe Delta and BV7 have the potential to become two standalone satellite open pit mines, just 30 kilometres south of the Mt Carlton mill.”

    Navarre believes that data from these drilling results will be used to complete a planned resource estimate update for Crush Creek, due for release in March 2022, along with an updated Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve statement for its other deposits at Mt Carlton including V2, A39, Telstra Hill and Mount Carlton United.

    Drilling is currently on hiatus for the north’s wet season, and is expected to recommence in March 2022. Further diamond and RC drilling will be tasked with testing a series of shallow extensional and discovery targets within the Crush Creek tenements.
