The Eastern trend appears to be a shear within a mafic volcanic unit that correlates strongly with a discreet magnetic unit co-incident with a ~1.6km long > 20 ppb gold soil anomaly.
To date this trend has been intersected by three lines of drilling spaced over 500m where continuous gold mineralisation has been encountered and remains open in all directions.
