Auroch Minerals Limited (ASX:AOU) (Auroch or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration activities at the Ragless Range Zinc Target at the Arden Zinc-Copper Project (Arden, Auroch Minerals 90%) in South Australia.

Diamond drilling and down-hole radial IP surveys have been completed and modelled at the Ragless Range Zinc Target. Two diamond holes (RRDD010, RRDD011 – Table 1) were drilled to test the large unconstrained gravity anomaly (Figures 1, 2) associated with anomalous geochemistry from previous drilling and surface sampling. An additional drill-hole (RRDD009) was abandoned at 60m depth due to difficult drilling conditions. Both drill-holes completed intersected thick zones of the Wirrapowie Limestone unit, a known host unit for zinc mineralisation within the region. Initial logging and sampling have been completed and the assays are pending. Infill sampling of further zones of interest is underway.


  • Diamond drilling and down-hole radial Induced Polarisation (IP) surveys have been completed and modelled at the Ragless Range Zinc Target at the Arden Project in South Australia
  • Two drill-holes completed into the target lithological units in the centre of a strong regional gravity anomaly, with assays pending
  • Radial IP surveys identified shallow chargeability features south of drill-hole RRDD007, which intersected 12.8m @ 4.96% Zn from 53m including 3.65m @ 15.47% Zn from 62.15m1
  • Further higher chargeability features identified directly west-southwest of RRDD011 that correlate with the Wirrapowie Limestone unit which is known to host zinc mineralisation
  • Drilling being planned to test the IP anomalies and potential extensions to the high-grade zinc mineralisation in RRDD007, in addition to surface exploration for copper, lithium and rare earths on the greater Arden Project area
