Adriatic Metals (ASX:ADT) has announced that it has received the assay results from the fourth hole completed in its drilling programme at the Rupice base and precious metals project in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The drill hole (BR-5-18) was collared approximately 40m to the north of BR-3-18, and drilled in a south-westerly direction at -60 ̊ to test the down-dip and down-plunge extension of the high-grade mineralization intersected in the company’s hole BR-3-18, drilled in the current 2018 campaign. This intersection also represents nominally an 85m down dip extension relative to the historic drill hole BR-79-89, which intersected 14m of 16.5 percent combined lead and zinc and 30 percent barium sulfate.
As highlighted in the press release:
- Drilling confirms a further high-grade and thick intercept, extending mineralisation north of Rupice, returning: 66m at 2.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, 158 g/t silver, 2.3 percent copper, 8.6 percent lead, 12.8 percent zinc and 37 percent barium sulfate from 210m in drill hole BR-5-18.
- Further extends the high-grade mineralisation approximately 85m down-dip from historical hole BR-79-89.
- BR-5-18 is approximately 40m north of the previously reported high- grade drill hole BR-3-18.
- Highlights the continuity and thickness of Rupice within the interpreted northern mineralization corridor and confirms the ongoing exceptional growth potential.
