Red River Resources hits up to 32.3 g/t gold in Eleanora drilling at Hillgrove project in NSW

Red River Resources Ltd (ASX:RVR) has intersected broad intervals of gold-antimony mineralisation with results of up to 32.3 g/t gold and 6.9% antimony from maiden drilling targeting the Eleanora Lode at Hillgrove Gold Project in NSW.

The results have confirmed the presence of high-grade gold-antimony within the Eleanora vein system and adjacent halos of low to medium-grade gold mineralisation.

Drilling has now begun at the Currys Lode target as the company firms up gold targets at the project ahead of the planned resumption of gold production at Hillgrove by the end of 2020.

Some high-grade intersections of up to 32.3 g/t gold, including visible gold, demonstrates that there is a significant remnant resource which Red River will continue to pursue, given Eleanora is 200 metres from the Hillgrove processing plant and on a mining lease.
