Castile Resources Limited (ASX:CST) (“Castile” or “the Company”) is pleased to advise that results from Hole 22CRD001-1 have revealed a new high grade gold zone at the Company’s 100% owned Rover 1 Project. The new gold structure occurs outside, but directly adjacent to, Castile’s current Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) for Rover 1 in the Jupiter Deeps section of the deposit.

The upper part of Hole22CDR001 has returned an exceptional intercept of IOCG mineralisation of:

  • 31m at 4.0 g/t Gold, 1.0% Copper and 0.1% Bi from 868m (TW 20.2m) downhole

This included a high grade core zone of:

  • 9.5m at 9.6 g/t Gold with 1.4% Copper and 0.2% Bi from 881.5m downhole

This intercept points to the discovery a new additional high grade gold zone where late stage shears cut the IOCG alteration and also extends the Jupiter Deeps zone further down-dip.

Other results from 22CRD001-1 include:

  • 7m @ 2.5% Cu with 0.5g/t Au and 0.1% Bi from 906.0m downhole
  • inc 1.7m @ 6.6% Cu with 0.8g/t Au and 0.1% Bi from 907.7m downhole
  • 8m @ 1.4% Cu with 0.9g/t Au, 0.1% Bi and 0.1% Co from 828.6m downhole
  • inc 5m @ 1.7% Cu with 1.2g/t Au, 0.1% Bi and 0.1% Co from 831m downhole

Additionally, Hole 22CRD001-1 continued in IOCG alteration for 173.4 metres downhole expanding the interpreted true width of the Jupiter Deeps IOCG alteration to 86m (from 66m). The hole exited the IOCG alteration laterally which opens the base of the system for further extensions of the new high-grade copper-gold zones at depth.

Mark Hepburn, Managing Director of Castile commented:

“This is a major new discovery for Castile.

Not only does the interpretation suggest the discovery of a new bonanza gold zone at Rover 1, it appears the IOCG system is expanding at depth. This newly discovered gold zone sits adjacent to our current Indicated Mineral Resource in the Jupiter Deeps area and provides us with enormous potential for growth.

In addition, the discovery of the extension of ironstone into the hanging wall approximately 120m below existing drilling is significant, indicating the Jupiter Deeps ironstone is more extensive than previously thought and suggests known Cu-Au mineralisation may also continue down dip further than has currently been interpreted. Paired with the new high grade gold zone identified, this hole has changed our understanding of the Jupiter Deeps ironstone zone considerably.”

The drilling program continued with another wedge cut from this hole with the aim of testing the Ganymede high grade gold zones in the hanging-wall of the main IOCG zone. (See ASX:CST 2022 Drilling And Fieldwork Program Commences). This wedge has been completed and the core is being prepared for assay. These results will be presented to the market as they are received.
