APOLLO DEEP ZONE UNVEILS GOLD RICHES

Southern Cross Gold Strikes High-Grade Veins at Apollo Deep

Southern Cross Gold Ltd (ASX:SXG) has released drilling results from the Apollo Deep zone, revealing significant gold findings. Key intercepts include 14m @ 8.58g/t AuEq from 50m, 32m @ 3.42g/t AuEq from 143m, and a standout 0.4m @ 49.9g/t AuEq from 362.5m. The drillholes have identified four new vein sets beneath Apollo, extending the strike continuity of the high-grade zone found at Rising Sun, with multiple assays exceeding 15g/t gold, including an impressive 5m @ 9.77g/t Au from 32m, which also includes 2m @ 20.02g/t Au from 32m.

Michael Hudson, Managing Director of Southern Cross Gold, expressed enthusiasm about the parallels between Apollo Deep and the earlier success at Rising Sun. He noted the significance of the newly discovered vein sets and the company’s progress in filling gaps within a previously untested area. Hudson’s full statement is as follows:

Having had such great success at Rising Sun, we are now seeing similar early results from a new area, Apollo Deep, located 450 m east of Rising Sun. As can be seen in Figure 2 we are filling gaps in a previously untested area identifying four new vein sets that are 400 m below surface. The new area appears to represent the strike continuation of the high-grade zone we see at depth at Rising Sun, offset by the Golden Orb Fault. Importantly we have several holes awaiting assay or in progress to follow up these results (including SDDSC0106, 108A, 109, 112).

We continue to drill over the summer period and with 17 holes in the laboratory, we look forward to continued news flow from Sunday Creek. An interview on these results with a 3D Leapfrog presentation, can be viewed at www.southerncrossgold.com.au.
