It could even be that the company’s drills are closing in on a second intrusive, but until the company receives the assay results from backed-up laboratories, it would remain hard to tell. Further drilling remains halted in anticipation of the results.
According to Lulin, the Patwon zone is a consistent, steeply dipping, gold-bearing zone that has been traced over a strike length of 500 metres and to a minimum depth of 450 metres, where the system remains “robust and open,” with a possible gold grade increase with depth. The average estimated actual width is about 35 metres based on the published results from 44 drill holes. True widths can reach up to 80 metres.
