The company has drilled 11 holes for a total of 2,165 metres, mainly focusing on the Giant Vein, No 17 Vein and the Redbird Vein at the project.
Geological logging indicates that in all the holes drilled so far, the alteration zones and veins have been intersected and the area is expected to host mineralisation.
Drilling in these areas is focused on verifying and expanding upon the known gold and silver mineralisation within the 350 square kilometre licence area that remains relatively unexplored.
Same veining and alteration
Tempus managing director Brendan Borg said: “Its very pleasing to see the same veining and alteration in our holes drilled to date that in the past was associated with gold and silver mineralisation at Blackdome.
“We very much look forward to receiving the assays back for these initial holes.”
Laboratory results of the samples cut and collected from the first five holes at the northern end of the Giant Vein are expected within the next two weeks.
Assays are expected to provide further new data for inclusion in a maiden JORC-compliant mineral resource.
Another batch of samples from the holes drilled at the Redbird and No 17 veins will be dispatched to the Read More – Source
