Vango Mining (ASX: VAN) has reported more ‘high-grade’ gold intersections from RC drilling at the Skyhawk open-pit target within its Marymia Gold Project in Western Australia.
Hole VSKRC0007, the last of seven holes from the Skyhawk target, delivered 16m @ 4.4 g/t Au from 54m including 6m @ 8.2 g/t Au, in a result that confirms the continuation of a significant zone of shallow gold mineralisation.
Skyhawk is the first of 11 open pit targets drilled in 2021, each of which are not included in the project’s 1.02Moz resource
The assays comes hot on the heels of hole DSHRC0023, which returned 18m @ 2.0 g/t Au from 76m including 1m @ 8.5 g/t Au earlier in September.
Skyhawk is the first of 11 open pit targets drilled in 2021 at Marymia, each of which are not included in the project’s JORC-compliant 1.02Moz @ 3.0 g/t Au resource.
The company reports that phase 1 drilling of 8,914m across 56 holes in all 11 open pits is now complete, with assays pending for the remaining 10 pits.
Vango has stated that it is ‘delighted’ with the latest round of results, with the broad, shallow mineralisation enhancing the economics of a potential future resource at Skyhawk. Phase 2 drilling is now being planned at the target to capitalise on these positive results.
