The company said the intercepts confirm the high-grade base-metal mineralization within the lens and have better defined the limits of the area.
Heron Resources (ASX:HRR) has reported that it has received the final assays for the extensional and infill drilling program of the shallow G2 Lens at its wholly-owned Woodlawn zinc-copper project, located 250km south-west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
According to Heron, these intercepts confirm the high-grade base-metal mineralization within the lens and have better defined the limits of the area. The G2 Lens will provide early-stage production for the operation.
Heron managing director and CEO, Wayne Taylor said:
“The completion of the G2 Lens drilling program is an important step for the early production schedule of the mine in 2019. While structurally complex, the often high-grade nature of the lens should provide a good source of early underground ore to the processing plant; furthermore this mineralization is in addition to the published reserves for the project. Also given the good metallurgical performance from the G2 mineralization it will be ideal material for commissioning the first underground ore through the plant. Our geologists and engineers are currently completing detailed modelling to optimize the planned production from this area.”
