Southern Geoscience Consultants are pleased to report that West Wits Mining (ASX:WWI) has received assay results confirming the intersection of significant intervals of gold mineralisation – drill testing was conducted by Farm-In partner, Rio Tinto Exploration Pty Ltd at the Mt Cecelia Project in the Paterson Province, Western Australia.
The first pass drilling programme targeted a moderate-strong EM anomaly (SGC-1) identified from airborne and ground EM surveys previously undertaken for West Wits. The anomalies were initially interpreted as potential bedrock conductors that may represent base metal sulphide mineralisation. The assays received for WEWI0001 and WEWI0004 contained relatively low levels of base metal anomalism but significantly elevated Au results. The existence of elevated Au results at SGC-1 provides a basis for the exploration team to reassess initial interpretations of the remaining seven EM targets (SGC-2 to SGC-8).
Future work may include further petrographic analysis to better understand the geology and nature of the mineralisation, as well as detailed geophysical surveys and additional drilling.
