More gold has been intercepted at the Sandstone project by Venus Metals, with mineralisation remaining open at depth.
In a separate announcement this morning, the company also noted that drilling had begun at the Curara Well copper-gold joint venture in which it retains a 20% free carried interest after the farm-out to AIC Mines.
At Sandstone, the stage two drilling program was designed to test the extent of high-grade gold mineralisation previously hit at the Range View prospect, in which Venus has a 90% interest.
Results from this stage two drilling included hole 134 which returned 9m at 2.3 grams per tonne gold from 15m.
Another hole uncovered 6m at 2.06g/t gold from 20m down hole, including 1m at 6.14g/t gold.
A third assay reported 5m at 2.76g/t gold, including 1m at 6.23g/t gold.
