Magmatic expands gold footprint in NSW

Published at Nov 24, 2017, in Mining

Magmatic Resources (ASX:MAG) has announced an expansion of its Moorefield Project in NSW, with a 193 square kilometre expansion following the granting of a new exploration license by Australian authorities.

Importantly, the new exploration licence (EL8669) is adjacent to MAG’s existing Moorefield tenement (EL7675) to the east and south, and covers possible extensions of mineralised trends at Carlisle Reefs and Pattons (indicated below):

Recent drilling at Carlisle Reefs intersected significant gold intercepts including:

  • 30m @ 1.6g/t Au
  • 36m @ 1.21g/t Au
  • 2m @ 8.44g/t Au

It should be noted here that this company is an early stage explorer and investors considering this stock for their portfolio should seek professional financial advice before making an investment decision.

Carlisle Reefs is located at the southern end of a 15 kilometre magnetic trend that extends from south of the Carlisle Reefs prospect to north of the Boxdale prospect. Gold Fields previously drilled five RC holes at Boxdale including gold intercepts of 19 meters @ 1.28g/t gold and 15 metres @ 1.0g/t gold.

A soil sampling program to define drill targets on the Boxdale-Carlisle and Pattons trends is currently underway and a high-resolution aeromagnetic survey is also planned.

Update on recent drilling

MAG has now published its most recent results from its first air-core drilling program at the Lady Ilse copper-gold project.

The best result from shallow air-core drilling is 2 meters @ 1.61g/t gold from 24 meters at bottom of hole. The company reports that its best gold intercepts also have elevated copper which bodes well for MAG’s future polymetallic ambitions.

According to MAG, 30 air-core holes have now been drilled for 392 metres over four 200-metre spaced lines with holes 50 metres apart. From these, “indications are that a gold anomaly which was previously detected is up to 150 meters wide and 300 meters long and is open to the east,” MAG Managing Director David Richardson said.

“We have identified a gold anomaly up to 150m wide and 300m long that is open to the east and at depth with five of the holes ending in gold mineralisation with elevated copper assays. We are also encouraged by its coincidence with a large magnetic anomaly that measures 700m x 300m and will immediately be following up these exciting results with further RC drilling to extend the anomaly, as well as to test the depth extent of the mineralisation.”
