The 40 rock samples from the Marble Bar South Project were collected from old mine workings, spoil piles and outcropping quartz veins. The samples were analysed for a total of 20 elements at Bureau Veritas in Perth; these included gold, silver, arsenic, cobalt, copper, chrome, bismuth, iron, lithium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, lead, antimony, tin, tellurium, thorium, uranium, tungsten and zinc.
A few samples were anomalous in various elements but the outstanding results were in the gold assays which varied from 7ppb Au up to 47.6g/t Au, with an average for all 40 samples of 4.16g/t Au, and 14 of the 40 samples assaying over 1.0g/t Au.
The full assay results for gold and base metals are in Table 2, with the gold results also shown on the plan below. The full results were detailed in the ASX release of the 21 June 2018.
The next phase of field work at the Marble Bar South Project will closely mirror that at the Marble Bar North Project, comprising further rock sampling, soil sampling in colluvium and soil covered areas and detailed geological mapping to better understand this gold mineralised system.
It is probable that this work will also be completed in the next few months during the current field season in the Pilbara.
