Auroch Minerals Ltd (ASX:AOU) has intersected zinc and lead mineralisation in maiden drilling at the Bonaventura project on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island. Drilling at Grainger prospect intersected vein sets in fresh rock at shallow depths. At Dewrang prospect drilling demonstrated that a 1.5-kilometre-long IP chargeability anomaly appears to correlate with base metals mineralisation. Auroch Minerals CEO Aidan Platel said the results were a great result for the company, confirming base metal mineralisation at the two highest priority targets. Several lead and zinc vein sets at Grainger A single drill hole at Grainger targeted down dip extensions of historical artisanal workings, intersecting thin veins comprising zinc sulphide, lead sulphide, pyrite and calcite. Best result was 6.0 metres at 1.53% zinc and 0.21% lead from 28.3 metres, including 1-metre at 4.50% zinc and 0.34% lead from 33 metres. There was another strong 7-metre intersection from 64.2 metres at 1.65% zinc and 0.26% lead, including 1-metre at 4.14% zinc and 0.66% lead from 70.2 metres. Platel said: “At Grainger, the drilling intersected several sets of lead and zinc bearing veins at shallow depths near historic artisanal workings. “Mineralisation is clearly structurally controlled and remains open at depth.” Two holes at Dewrang Two holes were completed at Dewrang – one on each of two IP section lines 400 metres apart along strike. Best result was 8.9 metres at 2.12% zinc and 0.51% lead from 180.1 metres, including 1-metre at 4.53% zinc and 0.97% lead. “Drilling at Dewrang demonstrated an extremely good correlation between mineralised intervals of base metals and the 1.5-kilometre chargeability anomaly defined by our June IP survey, suggesting we are dealing with a large mineralised system,” the CEO said. The Bonaventura project contains several historical artisanal mines for zinc, lead, copper, gold and silver that were worked at various times up to the 1920s. Structural geology study planned Auroch is planning a structural geology study of Grainger in order to better understand the prospect’s deformational history. This is expected to allow for potential definition of target areas of possibly thicker mineralisation and/or higher grades with the aim of locating possible drill targets. Dewrang prospect remains a priority target area and Auroch’s geology team will continue to use pXRF, surface mapping and surface sampling to build the geological database and define new target areas. Platel added: “The company will continue to focus its exploration activities, leveraging all information required from the maiden drilling to vector in on possible higher-grade zones.”

Andrew Hanlan, research analyst at Westpac, notes that the Australia’s Q3 Business Indicators survey for September update provided some mixed messages - which is not unusual for this survey.
“Incomes were arguably robust but inventories stalled and will be a drag on growth in Q3.”
“Headline company profits increased by 1.9% in the quarter. Profits on an adjusted basis (to be more consistent with the national accounts measure) grew by 1.2% we estimate - in line with our forecast of 1.3%.”
“Over the past year, national income has been boosted by higher commodity prices - a dynamic again evident in the September quarter.”
“Employment trends were positive in the September quarter, with jobs expanding by 0.7%, including a sizeable 0.8% increase in full-time employment.” Reported by FXstreet.com 58 minutes ago.

Musgrave Minerals Ltd (ASX:MGV) managing director Rob Waugh updates Proactive Investors on exceptional drilling results at the Lake Austin North prospect within its flagship Cue Gold Project in Western Australia. “We’re seeing thick mineralisation, lots of alteration – some really good signs,” Waugh says. He continues, “we want to focus our work on the Lake going forward and that’s where we think there is potential for these multi-million-ounce type deposits, the really big ones, and that will be our focus for the exploration over the next 6-12 months.” The first diamond drill holes into the A and C-zone targets at Lake Austin have returned grades up to 242 metres at 1.0 g/t gold from 61 metres, which included a high-grade zone of 45 metres at 3.3 g/t from 70 metres.

Alto Metals Ltd (ASX:AME) holds about 800 square kilometres of prospective ground in the Archaean Sandstone Goldfield in the East Murchison mineral field of Western Australia. Since acquiring the Sandstone Gold Project in 2016, the company has compiled and reviewed a large legacy database ahead of a series of focused exploration and drilling campaigns. Alto’s goal is the delineation of a plus-1 million-ounce JORC mineral resource that could become the basis for the re-establishment of standalone oxide and primary gold mining and milling operations. Forward plan for near-term opportunity The company’s plan is to increase its gold resource incrementally targeting shallow deposits (about 200 metres below surface) at the Vanguard, Indomitable, Lord Nelson and Lord Henry deposits that can be economically mined. Alto has already defined a gold resource of about 4.9 million tonnes at 1.7 g/t for 261,000 ounces of contained gold at the Sandstone Gold Project. This includes the maiden inferred resource of 124,000 ounces of gold for its Indomitable and Vanguard Camp deposits. READ: Alto Metals reveals maiden gold resource at Indomitable and Vanguard Camp deposits Alto managing director Dermot Ryan recently said: “These shallow gold deposits in the Vanguard and Indomitable Camps all have a gold rich lateritic cap overlying the oxide gold mineralisation, most are “blind” in that they are buried under alluvium, and most importantly, the gold grades increase with depth into the transition and fresh rock zones. “Now that we understand the structural controls on these deposits, the next stage is to RC (reverse circulation) drill test them (and their associated bodies) along strike and down plunge, where extra ounces of gold can be rapidly added. READ: Alto Metals managing director ups stake through on-market trades “When Alto purchased the project in 2016, there were no JORC 2012 mineral resources. “With carefully targeted drilling and adequate funding, there is potential to double the current JORC 2012 mineral resource base to +500,000 ounces over the next 12 months.” Sandstone Gold Project gold resources In October 2018, Alto confirmed the geological models for the Vanguard and Tiger Moth prospects. An RC drilling program consisting of two holes recovered high-grade intercepts from each prospect, as well as providing samples for further metallurgical test work. The drill hole at Vanguard intersected 40 metres at 3.5 g/t gold from 60 metres, including 12 metres at 5 g/t from 60 metres, while Tiger Moth hole intersected 8 metres at 4.1 g/t from 52 metres. Understanding high-grade plunging shoots of orogenic gold systems is the key to unlock potential multi-million ounces gold deposits Alto managing director Dermot Ryan added: “Alto’s recently published mineral resource estimate for the Indomitable and Vanguard camps was the result of applying a systematic exploration approach. “This process resulted in the selection and successful testing of a number of litho-structural gold targets. “The next stage is to step-out and drill test the down-dip/down-plunge extensions of these newly discovered mineralised structures and convert gold mineralisation into mineral resource.” Exploration-development pipeline Alto plans to conduct RC and diamond core drilling at Vanguard and Indomitable to define the extent of the mineralised structures, as well as aircore drill testing of soil and laterite gold geochemical anomalies. The company will also progress its resource evaluation work, which will include: • Maiden mineral resource estimation for Ladybird, Havilah and Sandstone North using existing available data; • Update to the company’s JORC 2012 mineral resource inventory; and • Geotechnical drilling, bulk density measurements and metallurgical test work where required to convert gold mineralisation into mineral resource. Alto’s medium to long-term goal is to discover 5 million ounces gold in high-grade deposits (200 – 500 metres below surface), which will serve as the foundation of major mining operations.
