Gold assays returned from maiden RC program
Investors were buying up the Metal Hawk share price after the company provided a positive release to the ASX today.
According to the update, Metals Hawk advised that its reverse circulation (RC) drilling program has achieved gold assays results.
A number of holes were drilled to test a number of broad gold anomalies discovered at the Little Lake and Western Tiger prospects. The company undertook a recent aircore (AC) drilling program at the sites.
At Little Lake, six RC holes were completed resulting in significant new gold intercepts. This included:
4 metres at 17.8 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold (Au) from 75 metres (drill hole KERC012); and
1 metre at 2.9 g/t Au from 66 metres (drill hole KERC010).
Furthermore, five RC holes were drilled at the Western Tiger prospect, highlighting the following results:
2 metres at 1.45 g/t Au from 73 metres (drill hole KERC003);
1 metre at 1.42 g/t Au from 80 metres (drill hole KERC004);
5 metres at 1.95 g/t Au from 70 metres (drill hole KERC005); and
5 metres at 1.09 g/t Au from 69 metres (drill hole KERC006);
Metal Hawk managing director, Will Belbin commented:
Our first RC drilling program at Kanowna East has further highlighted the potential of this gold project. Following the Company’s nickel sulphide discovery at Berehaven and the successful capital raising in October, the Company is very well positioned to continue delivering exploration success across its highly prospective gold and nickel projects.
Metal Hawk noted that the next stage of RC drilling will follow up the new gold intercepts at the Little Lake and Western Tiger prospects.
