Millennium Uncovers New Pilbara-based Gold Exploration Target

Millennium Minerals has identified a “major new greenfields exploration target” near the Nullagine mine’s Golden Eagle deposit.

Millennium Minerals (ASX:MOY) has identified what it calls a “major new greenfields exploration target” near the Golden Eagle deposit at its Nullagine gold mine in the East Pilbara region.

Located just under 2 kilometers southwest of Golden Eagle, the new and appropriately dubbed Golden Eagle South West target was identified through a new methodology that combines 3D magnetic inversion, structural analysis and soil geochemistry.

The new tactic is based on a reinterpretation of Millennium’s exploration data sets, and will now be applied across all of the company’s tenements in Western Australia’s Mosquito Creek Basin.

Reconnaissance drilling returned assay results including 12 meters at 0.87 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 184 meters, including 1 meter at 3.13 g/t gold from 191 meters. The company considers these results significant as they confirm the magnetic signature is associated with gold mineralization, and has similar alteration to the Golden Eagle deposit.

“This is an outstanding result, demonstrating that our new exploration targeting approach is capable of identifying new, high-quality exploration opportunities at depth,” Millennium Chief Executive Peter Cash said in a statement.

“While most of our exploration at Nullagine has historically been directed towards outcropping geochemical targets — which have been very successful in delivering ongoing increases in resources and reserves — we believe that an integrated targeting methodology based on a mineralized system approach has the potential to unlock major new discoveries,” he added.

Through the usage of 3D magnetic inversion, Millennium was able to identify additional magnetic targets, which the company says it will now “prioritize and pursue.” Follow-up exploration is set to commence shortly, and will be comprised of a gravity survey and additional drilling.

“This represents an enormously important technical breakthrough for the area and Millennium,” Cash said, emphasizing that the company will continue to explore at Nullagine.

Millennium’s Nullagine gold mine currently produces around 80,000 ounces per year, with material sourced from five mining centers over a 40-kilometer strike length.

The company’s owned land through the project covers 264 square kilometers of the Mosquito Creek gold belt, and hosts a mineral resource of 850,000 ounces of fresh ore. The company’s share price closed Tuesday (August 28) at AU$0.20.

Discovery Harbour Provides Newcrest’s Planned Program for Fortuity 89, Nevada

Discovery Harbour Resources Corp. (TSXV: DHR) (OTC Pink: DCHRF) (FSE: 4GW) (the “Company” or “Discovery Harbour”) is pleased to announce that Newcrest Resources Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited (“Newcrest”), has provided the details of its planned program for the Fortuity 89 epithermal gold property in Nevada.

The Fortuity 89 property covers very limited outcrop surrounded by a large covered area. The outcrop and interpreted geology are prospective for concealed low sulphidation epithermal gold mineralization below shallow unconsolidated alluvial gravels. Newcrest’s planned activities include a geophysical program encompassing a 675 line kilometre drone airborne magnetic survey, a 250 station ground gravity survey and a 45 line kilometre audio band magnetotellurics (AMT) resistivity survey. It is intended that geologic and alteration sampling and mapping will also be undertaken with a soil geochemical sampling program. The intended outcome of this program is to identify potential drill targets for testing this calendar year.
