Drilling Commences to Test High-Grade Gold System at Western Queen Gold Project

Rumble Resources Limited (ASX: RTR) (“Rumble” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that a diamond and RC drilling program has commenced to test the continuity of the multiple high-grade zones beneath the Western Queen South and along strike of the Western Queen Central deposits. Previous drilling (by prior owners and by Rumble) has demonstrated high-grade gold occurs as moderately south plunging lode system with scope to extend to significant depths which may be amenable to underground mining.


  • An RC and diamond drilling program has commenced to test a number of high grade gold targets, and will follow up historical high grade intersections at the Western Queen South and Duke Prospects, including:
    • Western Queen South1:
      • 5m @ 38.76 g/t Au from 193m
      • 17m @ 5.70 g/t Au from 221m
      • 4m at 49.73 g/t Au from 134m
    • Duke Prospect2:
      • 8m @ 26.27g/t Au from 14m
      • 6m @ 25.87g/t Au from 48m,
      • 7m @ 60.60 g/t Au from 70m
      • 8m @ 7.22 g/t Au from 49m.
  • The historical mine project area (2.7km strike length) is on granted mining leases and is located within 100km radius of three gold processing plants
  • The Western Queen deposits are associated with a major orogenic shear zone similar to Spartan Resources’ Never Never Lode (5.16Mt @ 5.74 g/t Au for 952,900oz3) adjacent to the Gibley’s open cut (40 km south of Western Queen).
  • The Western Queen has historical production of 880,000t @ 7.6g/t Au for 215,000 oz4, that remains completely open down plunge and along strike
  • The Western Queen mineral resource currently stands at 2.1Mt @2.42 g/t Au for 163,200oz
  • Rumble’s licences cover the north-south trending Warda Warra greenstone belt which is 35km long and 3km wide. The greenstone belt hosts the mineralised Western Queen Shear Zone which remains largely underexplored.

Peter Harold, Rumble Managing Director and CEO commented: “As we continue with the metallurgical testwork on our Earaheedy zinc, lead, silver project we are delighted to be drilling the Western Queen Gold Project. The historical gold intersections at Western Queen are some of the highest grade gold intersections found in Western Australia today, and they warrant follow up. The system at Western Queen has already produced high-grade gold with historical gold production of 190,000 ounces from ore with an average grade of 8,9 grams per tonne. from the Western Queen Central Pit. This past production shows that the system is capable of hosting further significant high- grade orebodies.”

Western Queen Gold Project

Down-Plunge High-Grade Potential

With the significant increase in the price of gold, coupled with the latest drilling success by Spartan Resources on their Never Never Gold Deposit (Dalgaranga Gold Project – 40km south of Western Queen), Rumble has commenced an initial 1,500m diamond and RC drilling campaign to test the down-plunge, high-grade extension of the Western Queen South gold lodes and a potentially new lode north of the high-grade lodes already delineated at the Duke prospect north of the Western Queen Central deposit. Previous exploration and resource definition drilling by Rumble had focused on economic gold mineralisation amenable to open pit mining with limited drilling testing the continuity of the potential high-grade underground mineralisation.

Gold mineralisation at the Western Queen Gold Project has already been defined over approximately 2.7km and is associated with a large-scale structural flexure (dilational jog) within the regionally extensive auriferous Western Queen Shear Zone (WQSZ).

The Western Queen mineral resource currently stands at 2.1Mt @ 2.42 g/t Au for 163,200oz5.

Combined historic open pit and underground production from the Western Queen Central and Western Queen South deposits was 880,000t @ 7.6g/t Au for 215,000 oz gold.
