De Grey Mining Limited’s investor presentation & drilling update
Amongst its statements made this week, De Grey released a report showing additional “thick and high-grade gold mineralisation” at its Hemi prospect.
De Grey’s technical director, Andy Beckwith, said, “Clearly, drilling below this zone and the mineralisation on Section B are two key high priority RC targets.”
“We are looking forward to receiving the remaining aircore drilling results and re-commencing drilling activities now the cyclone has dissipated.”
The drilling at Section A of the prospect showed grades ranging from 5.1 grams per tonne of ore/dirt milled to 6.6 grams per tonne.
For context, the World Gold Council says high-quality underground mines, which tend to be more fruitful than above-ground mines, have a gold density of 8 to 10 grams per tonne. Low-quality grades would be between 1 and 4 grams per tonne.
