Notably, hole AHRC0136 intersected 13 metres at 5.05 g/t gold from 74 metres including 4 metres grading 9.8 g/t gold from 74 metres.
This thick, high-grade, relatively shallow intersection is located on a newly discovered hanging wall splay to the main Apollo Hill deposit.
It provides a good opportunity to pursue a new higher grade structure immediately east of the Apollo Hill Resource.
The mineralisation remains open along strike and down dip.
Saturn’s managing director Ian Bamborough said: “The intersection returned from AHRC0136 is one of the best ever reported at Apollo Hill.
“It represents the start of a new direction for the deposit and its future resource growth potential. Holes are being planned to follow up on this excellent result as soon as possible.”
Saturn plans to complete another 4,000 metres of RC drilling at Apollo Hill in the coming months with assays to be reported when received.
Upgrading the 685,000-ounce deposit
Results conitues to support the potential for a resource upgrade to the current JORC estimate of 20.7 million tonnes grading 1.0 g/t gold for 685,000 ounces of gold.
