VISIBLE GOLD SPURS DRILLING AT TUCKANARRA

Odyssey Gold Targets Rapid Resource Expansion

Odyssey Gold Ltd (ASX:ODY) has resumed reverse circulation drilling at the T8 Target of the Tuckanarra Project in Western Australia, with visible gold found in two of the initial three holes. The T8 Target shows promise with previous aircore drilling results up to 20m @ 2.4g/t Au, including 8m @ 5.0g/t Au, suggesting a robust gold system over a 300m strike length.

The current 1,260m drilling program aims to quickly bolster the existing 376koz Mineral Resource estimate. There’s also the potential for a 100m strike extension based on historic surface samples. T8 lies on a newly granted mining lease, near the historic Kohinoor deposit which yielded 166kt at 5.5g/t Au for 29koz.

Director Matt Briggs offered a direct statement on the progress: “RC drilling has recently commenced with visible gold being observed in 2 of the first 3 holes. The intersection of visible gold in RC drilling demonstrates targeted systematic exploration can continue to add shallow oxide open pit resources. There are numerous shallow oxide projects and potential underground extensions on the project warranting drilling such as the T8 Target.

This target has historic RAB, aircore and RC drilling, however this spacing, drill method and orientation of this drilling did not allow for the inclusion of the target in the July 2023 resource.

Additional data review as part of the resource documentation exposed a line of surface samples with anomalism to the east was identified that was not in the database. These samples suggest a strike extension to the east along with an undrilled parallel structure 500m to the south.”
