Auroch: Infill Sampling Extends Mineralization at Arden Zinc Project

The company said infill sampling of the The Arden project, north of Adelaide in South Australia improves best intersections from previous works.

Auroch Minerals(ASX:AOU) has announced that infill sampling of the remaining intervals of core from the Ragless Range drill-holes has identified more zinc mineralization and increased the width of some of the previously-reported significant intercepts, particularly for drill-hole RRDD007 which intersected high-grade zinc mineralization including 3.65m at 15.47 percent zinc from 62.15m.

The Arden project is located north of Adelaide in South Australia.

As highlighted in the press release:

  • Infill sampling of the Arden drilling improves best intersections from drill-hole RRDD-007: 12.80m at 4.96 percent zinc from 53.00m including 3.65m at 15.47 percent zinc from 62.15m and 32.70m at 0.92 percent zinc from 70.46m including 2.50m at 2.40 percent zinc from 70.46m and 8.50m at 1.30 percent zinc from 81.80m
  • Confirmation of high-grade zinc silicate mineralization (up to 34 percent zinc) in oxidized portion of drill-hole RRDD-007
  • The maiden drill programme at Arden intersected up to 3 horizons of SEDEX zinc mineralization extending over 3km of strike and open along strike and at depth

CEO of Auroch, Aidan Platel said:

“Drill-hole RRDD007 now has well over 50m (down-hole) of significant zinc mineralization, including a substantial interval of high-grade zinc mineralization. In addition to SEDEX and structurally-controlled zinc sulphide mineralization, the presence of the same high-grade zinc silicate minerals within the same limestone formations as those observed at Perilya Limited’s high-grade zinc silicate Flinders project is extremely encouraging. The information being gathered from our maiden drilling programme at the Arden Project continues to build on our current exploration model and is critical to our 2019 exploration programme.”
