Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Aurelia Metals Ltd.
(ASX:AMI) ("AMI" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on exploration at its Hera gold-lead-zinc project.
HERA NORTH FURTHER EXTENDED
Assay results have been received from further drillholes into the Hera North discovery. Results have further extended the high grade mineralisation, with Hera North remaining open at depth. All of the Hera North mineralisation lies outside the existing Hera Resource.
Hole HRD061 was drilled approximately 60m down plunge from the very high grade results received in hole HRD060 (3.65m @ 39.7g/t Au, 243g/t Ag, 19.2% Pb+Zn). HRD061 intersected the target zone as massive lead-zinc sulphides with visible gold assaying:
- HRD061: 9.5m @ 3.1g/t Au, 179g/t Ag, 17.5% Pb and 12.7% Zn, from 571.4m
Results have also been received for hole HRD060W1, completed as a wedge hole approximately 50m above the intersection in HRD060, confirming the continuity of Hera North mineralisation:
- HRD060W1: 7.7m @ 0.1g/t Au, 30g/t Ag, 2.5% Pb and 3.8% Zn, from 507.3m
The position of holes HRD061 and HRD060W1 are presented on long section on the following page, and the results are presented as table 1 and 2 with this release.
Exploration drilling at Hera North is continuing.
Aurelia's Managing Director, Rimas Kairaitis, commented:
"These grades are exceptional and continue to extend the size and quality of Hera North. The intensity of the lead-zinc mineralisation with respect to the existing Hera Resource is particularly pleasing"
