High Grade Gold In Maiden Drilling at Twin Hills

The Directors of eMetals Limited (ASX:EMT) are pleased to announce the results of the Company’s first reverse circulation drilling program at its wholly owned Twin Hills Project in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • High grade gold in composite samples returned from the Company’s maiden drilling program at Twin Hills Gold Project
  • Significant results from 4 metre composites include: 8m @ 2.66g/t Au from 40m including 4m @ 3.62g/t Au from 44m (THRC014); 4m @ 1.18g/t Au from 32m (THRC015); and 12m @ 0.62g/t Au from 40m including 4m @ 1.10g/t Au (THRC008)
  • Mineralisation is open in all directions
  • Validation of exploration model confirmed highlighting the prospectivity of structures underlying the three priority auger anomalies
  • Program of Works application lodged for priority follow-up RC drilling

The Directors of eMetals Limited (ACN 142 411 390)(ASX:EMT)(eMetals or the Company) are pleased to announce the results of the Company’s first reverse circulation drilling program at its wholly owned Twin Hills Project (Project) in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia. This announcement details the assay results of composite sampling from reverse circulation (RC) drilling undertaken in January 2021. Results of single metre sampling of quartz and sulphide bearing intervals are pending and will be reported when re-assaying of samples is complete.

Drilling has intersected high grade lode gold mineralization from scout RC drilling of auger geochemical anomalies defined by field work in 2020. Significant high grade assay results have been returned from an area 5 kilometres north of the Twin Hills gold mine (excised), from 4m composites sampling, with results of up to 4m @ 3.6g/t Au (THRC014, 44-48m) within an 8 metre zone of mineralization at 2.66g/t Au (from 40m).

The mineralization is hosted within greenstone and felsic porphyry and is open in all directions within a 400m long auger geochemical anomaly of 6ppb Au. Several other auger geochemical anomalies were tested and further drilling is required.

eMetals Director Mathew Walker commented:

“The composite sample results received by the Company have exceeded expectations with high grade gold returned from one RC hole and several new anomalous results returned from several other drill holes. Our search for repetitions of the Twin Hills gold shoot is off to an excellent start and further aggressive exploration is planned in the near future.”

Argyle Diamond Mine Closure: The End of a Sparkling Era

Pink and red diamonds are among the most special gems in the world. The value of these highly sought-after natural stones speaks for itself, but their rarity has arguably increased since the closure of Rio Tinto’s (ASX:RIO,LSE:RIO,NYSE:RIO) Argyle mine.

The asset, which ceased mining activity on November 3, 2020, had been in operation since 1983. In that time, 865 million carats of rough diamonds were produced.

The unique geological chemistry of the Western Australia location birthed the rarest hues, including champagne, cognac, blue, violet and of course, the coveted Argyle pink and red diamonds. Millions of carats of white diamonds were produced at the prolific property as well.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update

Highlights:

  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.

Medallion Completes Diagnostic Testing with Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization

Medallion Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MDL; OTCQB: MLLOF; Frankfurt: MRDN) “Medallion” or the “Company”) announces completion of a suite of diagnostic test work at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) in Sydney, to extract rare earth elements (REE) from mineral sand monazite. The monazite was sourced from an Australian mineral sand mine. Discussion is ongoing with additional prospective suppliers.

Mineral sand monazite is an abundant REE-rich feedstock, that can be accessed as a by-product from global mineral-sand mines that target zirconium and titanium, without the need for additional mining. Medallion’s business model is centered on the Medallion Monazite Process , a transferable and scalable technology designed to accept multiple mineral-sand monazite feedstocks and extract high-value REEs with high efficiency, high recovery and zero liquid waste.
