The Directors of eMetals Limited are pleased to announce the results of the phase two 592-hole auger drilling program at its wholly owned Twin Hills Project in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • eMetals has completed the phase two 592-hole auger drilling program at its wholly owned Twin Hills Gold Project in the Goldfields of Western Australia to the north of the historical excised Twin Hills Gold Mine which has recorded historical production of 1,100 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 23.6 g/t and an historical resource of 17,541
    tonnes at a grade of 20.86 g/t.
  • Two additional gold anomalies have been defined by auger samples in this northern area coincident with interpreted structural intersections that compliment the priority target area between the excised Twin Hills Gold Mine and Twin Dams tenements identified in the phase one 250-hole auger drilling program completed in July this year.
  • RC drilling is planned to commence within the current quarter to test for high grade shoots hosted by shear intersections defined from both phase one and phase two auger drilling programs.
  • Program of Works application lodged.

The Directors of eMetals Limited (ACN 142 411 390)(ASX:EMT)(eMetals or the Company) are pleased to announce the results of the phase two 592-hole auger drilling program at its wholly owned Twin Hills Project (Project) in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

eMetals Director Mathew Walker commented:
“The Company has successfully followed up on earlier geochemical targets with an expanded auger program that has delivered two additional high quality, tightly constrained drill targets. The Company is moving to test these targets as soon as regulatory approvals are granted.”

BACKGROUND
Earlier auger drilling at the Project completed in July this year and announced to the ASX on 4 August 2020 identified a north west trending auger geochemical anomaly sited parallel with a mapped fault that controls the plunging shoots within the excised Twin Hills Gold mine. This was interpreted as representing gold mineralisation hosted in a structural intersection and follow up auger drilling was planned. Please refer Figure 1.

The second phase of auger drilling consisted of 592 auger samples which tested two target areas north of the phase one auger grid. The holes were drilled with a ute mounted auger rig and qualitatively logged on site by the contractor. Samples were submitted to a commercial laboratory for aqua regia digest for Au + 33 trace elements, a conventional assay method for low level exploration for gold. Full details on sampling methodology is available in the JORC Table 1 & 2.

eMetals Limited (ASX:EMT) is a mineral resource exploration company focused on driving shareholder value by building a strong pipeline of mineral projects in various stages of development. The company's portfolio currently includes three projects in the premiere mining district of Western Australia that are highly prospective for tungsten, lithium and gold.

eMetals Limited is planning to conduct H1 2020 drill programs for the Nardoo Well tungsten-lithium project in the Gascoyne region and the Cookes Creek tungsten project adjoining Tungsten Mining's (ASX:TGN) Big Hill Deposit in the East Pilbara region. Tungsten is classified as a strategic metal by major economies across North America, Europe and Asia. According to firm Roskill, stricter environmental regulations in China coupled with depleting global mine supply are projected to create a tungsten deficit in the coming years.

Exploration work at the company's Twin Hills gold project in the Eastern Goldfields region is slated for H2 2020. Australia is one of the most prolific gold-mining countries in the world. The price of gold in Australian dollars has experienced a mostly upward trajectory since 2000, climbing from a high of AU$481.68 to AU$1,400 in 2010 and further upward to around AU$2,200 per ounce at the start of 2020.

To further expand its portfolio of mineral exploration opportunities, eMetals Limited has entered into a partnership agreement with Gecko Metals Sdn Bhd to identify and evaluate the potential acquisition of iron ore, manganese and tin interests in Malaysia.

Company Highlights

  • Owns a portfolio of projects in Western Australia, ranked the world's second most attractive mining district by the 2018 Fraser Institute Annual Survey of Mining Companies.
  • Focus on tungsten, a strategic metal experiencing a looming supply deficit.
  • Highly prospective tungsten assets with high grades and walk-up drill targets.
  • Twin Hills gold project hosts historical intersections along strike of a high-grade gold mine.
  • Anticipated steady news flow with drilling at Nardoo Well and Cookes Creek tungsten projects slated for H1 2020; proposed exploration work at Twin Hills gold project in H2 2020.
  • Partnership with Gecko Metals Sdn Bhd to build out a portfolio with quality iron ore, manganese and tin exploration projects in Malaysia.
  • Highly experienced board to maximize the value of its assets.
  • Tight capital structure: HSBC Custody Nominees Ltd 15.51 percent; GWR Group Limited 10.16 percent; Great Southern Flour Mills Pty Ltd1 9.26 percent; Citicorp Nominees PL 7.20 percent.

Key Projects

eMetals Limited's Project Pipeline

eMetals Limited's Nardoo Well Tungsten Project

The Nardoo Well tungsten project covers an area of 131 square kilometers in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. Earlier historical exploration performed by Mincor Resources (ASX:MCR) at Nardoo Well identified a significant source of tungsten mineralization in mapped skarns. Lithium and tantalum mineralization has also been identified in pegmatites in the property.

Historical results from Mincor's 2006 channel sampling work identified high-grade tungsten mineralization.

Historical results from Mincor's 2006 channel sampling work identified high-grade tungsten mineralization.

  • 3 meters at 6.66 percent WO3
  • 2 meters at 5.34 percent WO3
  • 2 meters at 2.07 percent WO3

The proposed exploration program at Nardoo Well includes geochemical surveys and surface mapping to support the drilling of targets along an 8.5-kilometer strike length of the Thirty-Three Supersuite, a geological structure known for rare earth element-bearing pegmatites and quartz veins derived from granite, and the skarns identified by Mincor.

eMetals Limited's Cookes Creek Tungsten Project

The Cookes Creek tungsten project covers 51 square kilometers adjoining Tungsten Mining's Big Hill Deposit in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia. The property hosts a well-exposed granite greenstone belt, with granites enveloped by volcano-sedimentary rocks. Historical exploration at Cookes Creek identified a number of tungsten, molybdenum and base metal occurrences on the property.

Tungsten mineralization was first observed at Cookes Creek in 1956 through survey work conducted by the Geological Society of Western Australia. A positive price environment for tungsten in that era led to small-scale mining activities at the McCleod's Quartz Vein, the biggest tungsten producer in the Pilbara region during the 1950s. Today, the vein appears open along strike and potential parallel structures can be seen on aerial photos.

Further tungsten anomalies were identified during exploration work conducted in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1983, Kalgoorlie Southern Gold Mines (KSGM) conducted a stream sediment program in the region that defined six major tungsten anomalies (A through F) all of which were located within 1.6 kilometers of the granite greenstone belt. Today, Area C is the site of the Big Hill deposit where drilling by Tungsten Mining from 2003 to 2009 identified a 2012 JORC Indicated resource of 6.2 MT at 0.16 percent WO3 and an Inferred resource of 5.3 MT at 0.13 percent WO3.

Areas A and D are within eMetals' Cookes Creek licenses and have experienced minimal modern exploration. At Area A, located west of the historic mining area, KSGM's trenching and drill work identified high-grade tungsten veins at surface.

eMetals Limited's exploration plan for Cookes Creek includes detailed surface mapping of the historical workings on the property along with a broader geochemical soil sampling program to identify any additional potential targets for drilling.

eMetals Limited's Twin Hills Gold Project

The Twin Hills gold project is located 150 kilometers north of Kalgoorlie and covers 30 square kilometers in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia's Archaean Yilgarn Craton. The property includes a total of 10 kilometers of strike covering the north and south extensions of the greenstone sequence that hosts the excised historical Twin Hills gold mine.

The Twin Hills gold mine was first discovered in 1928 and worked sporadically up through 1986. Historical exploration work in the region detected anomalous gold along strike of the mine, including RAB drill intercepts such as 8 meters at 1.74 g/t gold. The primary source of this mineralization has yet to be identified through deep bedrock drilling.

eMetals Limited's planned exploration at Twin Hills includes surface soil and mapping data as well as a detailed magnetics survey to identify drill targets for testing bedrock mineralization.
