The Liontown project comprises the significant polymetallic massive sulphide deposits at Liontown and Liontown East which have a total mineral resource of 3.6Mt at 10.0 percent zinc equivalent.

As highlighted in the press release:

  • Assay results received from first five holes drilled in current Liontown program
  • LTDD002 and LTDD005 intersected broad zones of polymetallic mineralisation with strong gold grades in the New Queen lens approximately 35m below surface:
  • LTDD19002 intersected 55.95m at 0.2 percent copper, 2.6 percent lead, 5.8 percent zinc, 1.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 12 g/t silver, (9.7 percent zinc equivalent) from 39.85m down-hole; and
  • LTDD19005 intersected of 51.30m at 0.2 percent copper, 2.0 percent lead, 5.1 percent zinc, 1.2 g/t gold and 14 g/t silver, (8.3 percent zinc equivalent) from 36.70m down-hole
  • The New Queen Lens has a true width is ~15m and contains much higher grade zones
  • All five holes drilled hit high grade polymetallic massive sulphide mineralisation in the Liontown main lens positions; (Lower, Central & Upper Lenses). Highlights include:
  • LTDD19002: 4.70m at 18.7 percent zinc equivalent. from 182.6m down-hole and 4.12m at 18.9 percent zinc equivalent from 234.50m down-hole;
  • LTDD19003: 3.98m at 15.6 percent zinc equivalent from 132.50m down-hole; and
  • LTDD19005 also intersected zones of polymetallic massive sulphide mineralization in the Liontown Main Lens – assay results are pending
  • LTD001 and LTD004 intersected the copper dominant Carrington Lens and confirm that it is open below the historic workings; highlights include:
  • LTDD19001: 1.19m at 5.0 percent copper from 276.60m down-hole; and
  • LTDD19004: 1.20m at 3.6 percent copper from 205.60m down-hole
  • These results provide confidence in historic drill data and confirm the high grade, gold-rich polymetallic nature of the Liontown Deposit

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.
