The re-sampling results, from holes Teena 4 and 6, confirm a close comparison between the historic drill core assays and the samples re-assayed by earn-in partner Teck Australia.
While complete re-sampling on a metre by metre basis was impossible due to the heavily degraded nature of the drill core, samples were taken randomly from one hole and at regular intervals from the other.
These showed no material differences beyond a slightly higher anomalous grade in the zinc while lead has a slightly higher anomalous grade in the historic assays, particularly at lower levels.
Further exploration at Teena is planned for the December quarter including surface geochemical sampling.
Drilling to confirm the impressive grades and thicknesses is expected to occur early in the 2013 field season and is anticipated to establish Teena as a significant zinc-lead prospect within the Myrtle/Reward Project.
Historical drilling results obtained by Teck had indicated that Teena could be at least as large as the Myrtle/Reward project about 15 kilometres to the south.
This included results such as 11.3 metres at 10.9% zinc plus lead and 8.6 metres at 9.84% zinc plus lead.
Teena is also strategically located 10 kilometres west of Xstrata's (LON: XTA) McArthur River Zinc Mine.
