Vango continues its golden run
Vango Mining (ASX:VAN) has this morning announced a further high-grade, gold intersection from drilling at its Mareast prospect at its 100% owned Marymia Gold Project.
To recap, Vango owns 100% of 45 granted mining leases covering over 80% — or more than 40 kilometres of strike — of the world-class Marymia Belt in the mid-west region of WA and include six major gold corridors extending from Superior Gold Inc.’s multi-million ounce Plutonic Mine (5.5Moz gold).
It has been a busy month for Vango. In early January, the company announced “Bonanza” gold intersections, that supported its focus on growing its high-grade gold resource base at the project and developing a significant stand-alone gold mine.
The gold exploration and development company followed its great start to the year, with positive drilling results from the Albatross and Flamingo prospects, which confirmed the exceptional, high‐grade open‐pit resource potential of the Albatross and Flamingo prospects.
Today’s news continues the positive trend of excellent results, this time at Mareast which highlights larger scale high‐grade discovery potential within the 5km Trident‐Mareast corridor. Notably, it remains open down dip and down plunge to the North east.
- 4m @ 11.0g/t Au from 81m, including 1m @3 4.5g/t Au (>1oz/t) in VMERC0027. This new intersection is in addition to the previously released intersection
- 10m @ 22.6g/t Au from 50m including 6m @ 33.3g/t Au in VMERC0025
Open pit resource estimates for Mareast will now be finalised and incorporated into a planned major resource upgrade for the entire Marymia Gold Project.
Deeper drilling is planned to test for underground resource potential, with Vango receiving funding through the Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) of the West Australian Government to see this through.
