Artemis Resources Limited has released a drilling update from their Carlow Castle Project, which is located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The company has announced that ‘significant’ gold, cobalt and copper intervals were found to be persistent in the latest diamond results from Carlow Castle. The Carlow Castle Co-Cu-Au Project currently covers three deposits (Carlow Castle South, Quod Est and Carlow Castle South East) and is approximately 35km from the company’s Radio Hill processing plant.
Drilling intersected mineralisation in a north-south orientation from Quod Est to Carlow Castle South (over a distance of 500 metres). The main strike of mineralisation at Carlow Castle South was east-west (with current defined strike distance of this east-west trend approximately 1.2km).
The best diamond drill intersections include:
- 22m at 6.10 grams per tonne Au, 0.55% Co and 2.35% Cu from 133m
- 31m at 1.65 grams per tonne Au, 0.11% Co and 0.47% Cu from 37m
- 5m at 2.34 grams per tonne Au, 0.23% Co and 0.33% Cu from 45m
- 5m at 4.08 grams per tonne Au, 0.45% Co and 1.52% Cu from 25.5m
“Shallow drilling by Artemis continues to define impressive widths and grades of gold, copper and cobalt at Carlow Castle. Though not fully defined yet, Carlow Castle looks to be part of a larger mineralised system that is open at depth and along strike,” said Artemis’ Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Bramwell.
“Drilling along strike and at depth could quickly add resource tonnage here,” Bramwell added.
This update comes just after Artemis’ update on 25 July, which stated that the drilling programme generated some ‘very high-grade’ cobalt intercepts with attended high copper and gold assays.
