Great Northern keen to keep drilling at Camel Creek
The recent program at the North Queensland gold project comprised a total of 49 holes for 5996m of drilling and produced some of the best results to date, Great Northern managing director Cameron McLean said.
Top results during the program included 56m at 4.14 g/t gold (including 20m at 10.87 g/t gold) and 24m at 5.94 g/t gold from 152m (including 8m at 14.79 g/t).
“The finalisation of our first program at Camel Creek for 2021 has returned some of the best and most significant assay results ever seen at Camel Creek,” Mr McLean said.
“We look forward to the next program, designed to test and extend the high grade and strike extensive gold mineralised zones highlighted.”
It was the third RC drilling program completed by Great Northern at Camel Creek, with drilling now extending over 1600m of potential strike extent and providing confidence in the extent of the gold mineralisation so far defined.
The company said planning for an additional RC and diamond tail (HQ) program was well advanced with an anticipated start by the end of July 2021, subject to finalisation with the drilling contractor.
This follow-up program is expected to be followed by an initial resource estimate later in the year.
