Golconda, JS (M5) Prospect
The M5 prospect is in altered siliceous host rock, exposed beneath caprock for one square kilometre north and east of M5. Gold (Au), Arsenic (As) and Antimony (Sb) were all anomalous in samples taken along the northeasterly crest of the central ridge at M5. Gold (Au) was consistently anomalous with two samples in the 740 ppb Au range. Arsenic (As) and Antimony (Sb) were also anomalous, with highs of 1,736 ppm As and 51 ppm Sb. This coincidence of geochemistry and altered sediments strongly suggests Carlin-type disseminated gold mineralisation.
The company will follow up these results with a detailed soil grid and rock chip geochemical programme. If similar Au-As-Sb values are found in follow-up samples from the other altered outcrops and surrounding soils, Carlin-type low-grade disseminated gold potential will become a drill target at M5.
