Western Australian focused explorer and development company Rox Resources has reported outstanding drill results from its 100 per cent owned Mt Fisher Gold Project and the Mt Eureka Gold Project (Cullen Resources Joint Venture).
The Mt Fisher-Mt Eureka Gold Project is located in the Northern Goldfields, approximately 500km northeast of Kalgoorlie (about 120km east of Wiluna) within the Mt Fisher greenstone belt. This belt is located 40km east of the prolific Yandal greenstone belt, host of significant gold deposits including Jundee, Bronzewing and Mt McClure.
A 4,800m RC drill program and a 7,000m air core program were completed in December 2021 to test high priority gold targets that were generated from a detailed geological/geophysical data review of the projects.
High-grade results from Mt Fisher (Rox 100%) include:
- MFRC081: 18m @ 6.99g/t Au from 69m, including 10m @ 10.27g/t Au from 74m at the Damsel Prospect
- MFRC084: 16m @ 2.58g/t Au from 164m, including 4m @ 3.49g/t Au from 164m and 4m @ 4.34g/t Au from 172m at the Dam Prospect
High-grade results from Mt Eureka (northern Mt Fisher belt tenure extension – Rox earning up to 75%, Cullen Resources Limited 25%) include:
- MFRC075: 13m @ 6.81g/t Au from 45m, including 9m @ 8.89g/t Au from 47m and 4m @ 2.59g/t Au from 67m at the Galway Prospect
- MFRC071: 3m @ 3.96g/t Au from 35m, including 2m @ 5.52g/t Au from 35m at the Southern Prospect
Rox Resources Managing Director Alex Passmore commented: “The Mt Fisher greenstone belt is one of the least explored belts of the prolific Yilgarn craton, and these results shine a bright light on its potential gold endowment. This is an exciting development for Rox given our vast tenure position in the belt.”
