In just the first drill program at the prospect, the company defined two zones of mineralisation along the Rockface trend, with highlights including:
- 12 metres at 1.33% copper, 6.5g/t silver, 0.1g/t gold from 61 metres; and
- 11 metres at 1.96% copper, 10.3g/t silver, 0.1g/t gold from 85 metres.
The results highlight the prospective nature of the entire strike length at Jervois.
Simon Milroy, managing director, commented:
"This drilling program is the first time KGL has conducted any drilling at Rockface and two zones of mineralisation have been identified on the same trend that remain open along strike and down dip."
Jerviois drilling program details
The shallow reverse circulation drilling program was completed in May-June and comprised 177 holes for 9,653 metres.
The majority of the holes were drilled at the Marshall-Reward (59 holes) and Bellbird deposits (56 holes).
Smaller programs were completed at Cox's Find, Rockface, Green Parrot and at mineralised zones parallel to Marshall-Reward.
Holes range from 25 metres to 100 metres, and were drilled at 10 metre intervals along traverses spaced at 80 metres along the deposits.
The program was designed to improve delineation of the oxide, transition and fresh rock boundaries within the regolith profile as part of the planned resource update.
The Rockface prospect is located at the southern end of the 'J‐shaped' Jervois fold 750 metres southeast of Bellbird and is one of several prospects located on the mineralised trend that extends 6 kilometres between Bellbird and Reward.
Today's assays from Rockface in just the first drilling program highlight the prospective nature of the entire strike length at Jervois.
The newsflow will continue for KGL Resources in the near-term, with results still pending from Bellbird, Cox's Find and Green Parrot.
Adding to the prospectivity of assays to come, recent results from Bellbird include 13 metres at 5.75% copper from 20 metres, while at Green Parrot 18 metres at 4.92% copper, (including 2 metres at 31.5% copper).
The next key catalysts are a resource upgrade expected in late-August, with a PFS in September.
KGL remains well-funded with $14.8 million in cash at the end of June 2014.
