Mineralisation Extended at Kathleen Valley's Coffey Deposit

 

Mila Resources, the post-discovery gold exploration accelerator, is pleased to announce a drilling update from the Kathleen Valley Gold Project in Western Australia ("Kathleen Valley" or the "Project").  The objective of the drill programme is to build on the existing JORC Inferred Resource and unlock the full potential of the project, which is located in a region which hosts some of the largest gold projects in Australia and which is adjacent to Bellevue Gold's discoveries.

 

Highlights

·    Stage 1 diamond core drilling completed with 11 holes for 2,763m drilled in 2022

·    All holes intersected the projected mineralised zones which comprises disseminated, stringer and semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralisation as well as Bellevue style quartz-sulphide veins

·    A second deeper sulphide zone has been intersected in the last two holes below the main zone, extending the mineralisation down to a vertical depth of 285m below surface

·    Drilling has now defined mineralisation over a zone 200m long and 220m down dip, which is open at depth and along strike

·    The mineralisation at Coffey forms a very planar and consistent zone which is now starting to show potential for multiple lode structures at depth

·    Assay results for the diamond core are still outstanding from the laboratory

 

The Company has now completed Stage 1 of its maiden diamond core drilling programme (Table 1) at the Coffey Deposit, which is located in the southern portion of the Kathleen Valley Project. 

 

Mila has maintained a 100% success rate with all holes intersecting the modelled mineralisation target zone.  This has resulted in potential Au-Ag-Cu-Zn sulphide mineralisation being intersected over an area more than 200m long by 220m down dip which is open along strike and down dip at depth and is awaiting assay validation.

 

Importantly, the last two holes of the drill programme (KVDD033 & 034) were planned to test the north trending down-plunge position of the developing Bellevue Style vein system.  In addition to intersecting these veins, semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralisation was also intersected below the targeted main zone (see figures below), opening up the potential for multiple lode structures at depth, similar to the Bellevue Deposit 6km to the south.

 

Neil Hutchison, Chief Geologist of Mila Resources, commented:

 

"We have had remarkable success with our maiden diamond core drilling campaign at Coffey.  Every hole has hit the target zone within metres of the predicted depth as the system is so planar and consistent.  In addition, the widths and quartz-sulphide zones intersected in the drilling are visually far better than we expected.  This is very unusual for a gold deposit and the geologists in the field continue to get excited as each and every hole is delivered.  The presence of the Bellevue Style veins, the increasing chalcopyrite being seen at depth, as well as this new deeper lower zone that is now emerging, means that we can't wait until the assays are received from the labs to validate our field observations."

 

Mark Stephenson commented:

 

"It is rare to find such consistently positive results from early-stage drilling but that is exactly what we have achieved here at our Kathleen Valley Gold Project.  The Coffey Deposit has all of the hallmarks of a very significant find and I, and the operational teams on site, are united in our optimism for the assays results, which we expect to receive from the laboratory in the near future."

In relation to the disclosure of visual mineralisation, the Company cautions that visual estimates of sulphide abundance should never be considered a proxy or substitute for laboratory analysis.  Laboratory assay results are required to determine the widths and grade of mineralisation.  The Company will update the market when laboratory analytical results become available.
