MANTLE MINERALS WRAPS UP ROBERTS HILL DRILLING CAMPAIGN

Extensive Aircore Program Targets Hemi-Style Mineralisation

Mantle Minerals Limited (ASX:MTL) has announced the completion of its aircore drilling program at Roberts Hill. The project, initiated on October 27, 2023, concluded with 174 holes drilled, totaling 13,475 meters, and assay results are anticipated by the end of January 2024.

Drilling Insights:

  • The average depth of the holes was around 78 meters, with the overlying sediments extending to about 30 meters, allowing for 48 meters of basement rock testing on average.
  • The focus is on uncovering Hemi-style mineralization within these basement rocks.
  • A follow-up reverse circulation drilling is slated to begin in early Q2 2024 to explore deeper into any significant findings from the aircore program.

The drilling at Roberts Hill, guided by comprehensive geophysical data, aims to establish a connection with the stratigraphy hosting the notable Hemi gold deposit. Mantle Minerals’ exploration model for Roberts Hill and adjacent areas stems from a detailed review of geological, geochemical, and geophysical data collected in the first half of 2023. This methodical approach underpins the company’s strategy to explore and potentially expand the known mineralization at Roberts Hill.
