The latest assays from hole ZX‐18025 confirm a 15.0m wide down‐hole interval of magnetite skarn containing 2.3 percent copper, 2.2 g/t gold and 11.9 g/t silver.
PolarX Limited (ASX:PXX) has announced that drilling continues to extend the boundaries of the known mineralization at the Zackly copper‐gold deposit within its Alaska Range project, further highlighting the potential for an increase in the JORC Resource.
According to the release, the latest assays from hole ZX‐18025 confirm a 15.0m wide down‐hole interval of magnetite skarn containing 2.3 percent copper, 2.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 11.9 g/t silver, 350m east of the JORC Resource at Zackly.
As quoted in the press release:
This zone of mineralization is approximately 40m vertically below similar mineralization previously reported for hole ZX‐18023. These two intersections were drilled between the current resource and recently reported hole ZX‐18020, which is 850m along‐strike from the resource and assayed 55m at 2.8g/t gold and 0.6 percent copper just 2.5m from surface.
Assays for hole ZX‐18024 which drilled underneath ZX‐18020 are expected within the next 1‐ 2 weeks.
