- 8m @ 20.1g/t including 0.9m @ 102.7g/t gold from 489.4m in DRDD590

What did management say?
Commenting on the latest drill results, Bellevue managing director Steve Parsons said:
These latest results, with grades of more than 20 g/t, show that Marceline is a significant discovery in its own right. But given the scope to leverage the planned and existing infrastructure at Bellevue, Marceline has the potential to contribute to the production profile and mine life estimates in the stage two feasibility study.
One of the main benefits being that $10 million of capital has already been costed in the stage one study and any additional ounces coming into the mine plan from the Marceline Lode are expected to benefit from a lower level of capital intensity.
Bellevue Gold expects to complete its stage two feasibility study at Marceline in the June quarter.
