Forrestania Resources confirmed the strike and depth of gold extensions at Lady Lila while increasing the size of its highly prospective Black Prince gold tenement near the company’s Great Southern Mine Centre in Western Australia.
The Lady Lila intersections, led by a 13-metre at 2.02 grams per tonne hit, extended the known mineralisation by 50 metres.
The result adds weight to historical data suggesting rapid definition of extensions to its 24,000 ounce open-ended gold resource.
Meanwhile, the Black Prince acquisition further consolidates gold fortunes with high-grade rock chips confirming a strike extension of around 1.6 kilometres.
Encircled by Forrestania tenements and returning a 28.2 grams per tonne grade, the Black Prince addition looks like a no-brainer, creating a substantial merged gold prospect adjacent to the prolific Great Southern site.
Recent board movement suggested a high-powered lithium focus, but the latest developments prove otherwise as gold rises over US$1900 per ounce.
Follow-up and maiden drilling are pending at the sites while the Perth-based company explores its priority lithium and nickel projects.
