Adriatic Metals (ASX:ADT) has announced that it has received the assay results from the first hole completed in its 15,000m drilling program at its Rupice prospect in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Results from assays of drill hole BR-2-18, as highlighted in the press release:
- 64m at 4.6 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold, 537 g/t silver, 0.9 percent copper, 7.7 percent lead, 10.8 percent zinc, 46 percent barium.
- Confirms consistency of the previously drilled, high-grade northern zone at Rupice and the exceptional growth potential
- 80m down-dip extension of thick and high-grade mineralization
- Presence of high grade gold in grab samples at JB zone, up to 3.5 g/t gold and coincident with the tenor of mineralization at Rupice
As quoted in the press release, chief executive officer of Adriatic, Geraint Harris said:
“The results from BR-2-18 are exciting in a number of respects: firstly we have revealed the continuation of thick mineralization on a 80m step out hole, which has the potential to add significant tonnes to any future resource; secondly we have assays confirming that this extension has grade continuity in excess of the exceptionally high grade precious and base metals content of BR-1-17, which make these some of the highest grade polymetallic results on the ASX.”
