Alice Queen has completed a soil and rock chip geochemical sampling program across its Horn island gold project under the new joint venture with St Barbara.
Assay results are expected within the next month.
However Alice Queen says sampling of quartz vein outcrops has shown encouraging signs of a potential extension of the hydrothermal system from the currently defined Horn Island gold resource.
It is planning a ground dipole-dipole induced polarisation (DDIP) survey over the zone of extensive quartz veining and recent geochemical surveying.
Fender Geophysics has been awarded the survey contract and Resources Potentials is acting as independent geophysical consultant.
