Aurumin Limited – developing the gold mining story

20 September 2022 11:43

Aurumin Limited listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and has been developing the Sandstone project since the last time we had a Coffee in January 2022.

When we last spoke to Brad Valiukas, they had just acquired the project. The strategy was to do more drilling to build a better database of the project. During this time, Aurumin has made a lot of progress with four drilling programs with extensive intersections of gold mineralisation.

Drilling results:

· 11/07/2022 – 344.00m @ 1.29 g/t Au

· 11/08/2022 – 224.00m @ 1.50 g/t Au

· 05/09/2022 – 352.80m @ 1.50 g/t Au

· 12/09/2022 – 242.70m @ 1.20 g/t Au

Looking at these drill holes, I see some hidden points about the grades which will be carried in the upcoming resource model. The entire length may appear to only have a slightly higher grade than the resource, but there are much better numbers within the intersection. To have an average of 1.5 g/t Au, you will definitely see much greater numbers within the length of the hole.

One also needs to understand that the potential higher grades within the holes will also allow the flexibility of changing the style of mining. I see the potential of Sandstone as a matter of when, and not if, it will be positive. The geology will create opportunities and the recent drilling is a clear indication that my assumptions are not too far off the mark.

Another important point to consider is the potential lack of motivation of neighbouring deposits to go to mining. If this were the case, Aurumin could consolidate their inventory and that would work perfectly for the model.
