Outback Goldfields Corp . (the ” Company ” or ” Outback “) (CSE: OZ) (FSE: S600) is pleased to announce the commencement of diamond drilling at its Glenfine project, central Victoria, Australia . The aggressive, fully funded program will focus on targeting high-grade, quartz reef-hosted gold mineralization – the hallmark of the nearby Fosterville gold mine and other significant gold deposits in the prolific Victorian goldfields.

Highlights of the Phase 1 Drill Program at Glenfine

  • A diamond drill has been mobilized to commence drilling at the Glenfine project.
  • 4,000 meters of drilling will target high-grade gold mineralization at two priority targets.
  • Geological crews have started property-scale rock and soil sampling programs.

We are excited to start our first ever drill program in the heart of the Victorian goldfields. The primary objective of this program will be to target high-grade gold mineralization at our Glenfine project. Two primary targets have been identified and we intend to develop and advance additional targets through property-scale sampling initiatives ” stated Chris Donaldson , CEO.

Glenfine project

The Glenfine project is centered on a 30 km section of the north-trending, crustal-scale Avoca fault which juxtaposes Cambrian rocks of the Stawell zone to the west with Ordovician rocks of the Bendigo zone to the east. On the west side of the fault the property is underlain by a 20 km long by ~1 km wide, north-trending, Cambrian aged basalt dome termed the Glenfine Dome where widely spaced historic drilling along its eastern and western margins have outlined numerous occurrences of gold mineralization hosted near the basalt and meta-sediment contact. Previous exploration drilling intersected numerous intervals of significant gold mineralization at both target areas, such as 3.8 metres of 9.0 grams per tonne (g/t) Au with 1.3 metres of 23.4 g/t Au in hole CCD01 at British Banner and 3.8 metres of 5.7 g/t Au with 0.8 metres of 21.0 g/t Au in hole PFD031 at Glenfine (see EL5344 2018 and EL5434 2016 Annual Reports*).

Drill Program

Based on a comprehensive 3D compilation of all available historic drill hole data, gold mineralization is considered open along strike and at depth at two priority targets: British Banner and Glenfine South. Drilling at both targets will test the vertical and lateral extent of structurally-controlled, quartz reef-hosted, high-grade gold mineralization previously identified by historic drilling and historic small-scale reef-mining. Step-out drilling will also test for the presence of parallel mineralized-structures and also for disseminated gold mineralization in host-rocks peripheral to known mineralized quartz-reefs.

Geological and geochemical surveys

A program of geological mapping, rock-chip and soil sampling has also commenced and will run concurrently with the drill program. This work will be focussed on the northern extent of the Glenfine tenements where post-mineralization, Neogene aged cover rocks are largely absent. The aim of this work will be to investigate areas of out-cropping Cambrian and Ordovician bedrock with previously documented local gold mineralization. Areas deemed prospective will be further investigated by soil geochemical surveys focused on identifying new areas of anomalous pathfinder elements (e.g., As and Sb). These data will be compiled with property-scale geophysical data to define new drill targets.

Community Engagement

Outback recognises the importance of open and honest community engagement in all our exploration activities. We approach all our exploration activities in a sustainable manner and ensure our activities comply with the Victorian Code of Practice for Mineral Exploration. As such, community consultation with local landowners has commenced.
