Pursuit Minerals finds lead and zinc in Queensland

Published at Nov 29, 2017, in Mining

The Australian commodities recovery is gradually impacting every state in Australia, as yet another ASX junior delivers high-grade assay results from Queensland.

Pursuit Minerals (ASX:PUR) has announced early stage assay results having intersected a 68 metre interval of zinc-lead mineralisation from a down-hole depth of 271 metres. The company reported high-grade zinc-lead mineralisation, with 252-253 metres returning 16.64% zinc and lead.

Other intersections from this particular hole have included:

  • 13m at 3.57% Zn+Pb
  • 3.0m at 5.40% Zn+Pb
  • 10m at 1.99% Zn+Pb

Samples from the JB Zone zinc-lead mineralisation have been submitted for dense media separation testing, to further investigate the potential to upgrade the zone’s mineralisation and determine if a stand-alone project could be economically viable.

Commenting on its first intersections, PUR Managing Director Jeremy Read said: “The mineralisation at the JB Zone is of substantial thickness and within the overall mineralised package there are higher grade intervals which are able to be correlated from section to section within the Mineral Resource.

“The information we have obtained from drill hole PB01-17 will assist in our overall evaluation of the economic potential of the JB Zone Mineral Resource. In particular it has provided fresh mineralisation which we have sent off for Dense Media Separation testing to determine if, through the use of DMS, the JB Zone can deliver an economic standalone project.”

It should be noted here that PUR is a speculative stock and investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for their portfolio.
