New gold finds at Empress Springs project

New gold finds at Empress Springs project

Moho Resources has discovered two new gold mineralised zones at its Empress Springs project, 50km south of Croydon.

Anomalous gold and base metal results came at the Yappar prospect, while the Wilson Bore prospect held a gold zone. (Results HERE)

“Moho is hunting large mineralised systems at Empress Springs and we are highly encouraged by the discovery of three separate mineralised systems around the rim of the caldera,” Moho managing director Shane Sadleir said.

“We remain confident the area has the potential to host large mineral systems and are looking forward to seeing what the next phase of exploration yields up.”

Moho is in joint venture with Independence Group on the project.

A total of 116 holes were drilled in the past field season, with an RC drill program consisting of 24 holes focused on extending the recently discovered gold mineralisation around hole ESA023 at the Arrowhead prospect.

An aircore drill program expanded the testing of bedrock beneath cover rocks in new areas of the project along existing tracks, while holes were also completed at the Arrowhead and Arrowhead West prospects to clarify mineralisation previously discovered by Moho.

The company says it is now planning drilling programs to be undertaken next field season and new geophysical surveys in areas under application in early 2020.
