EMU Records Gold Assays to 36.1 g/t in Georgetown, Queensland
EMU Geology Exploration Pty Ltd has announced fantastic gold assay results from their Georgetown drilling program, located on the edge of the South Nicholson Fold Belt in Queensland. The assay results found a highest grade intercept of 36.1 g/t gold.
Georgetown is part of the Eromanga Basin in Western Queensland, a geological formation that is internationally known for its gold deposits. The area has been part of an extensive exploration program, which includes historical drilling, surface sampling, and geochemistry analysis. The region has some of Australia’s highest grade gold deposits, and EMU’s exploration efforts have proven to be a success.
The new drill hole intercepts reported by EMU revealed three separate areas of high gold grades. The first intercept occurred at 80m, where the assay returned an impressive grade of 36.1 g/t gold. While the second and third intercepts had lower grades of 1.45 and 1.06 g/t, respectively.
Drilling at Georgetown has been ongoing with EMU Geology Exploration Pty Ltd stating that additional drilling is needed to further define the gold-bearing zones. They believe that the recent assay results have identified a potential gold field in the region that needs to be explored.
The high-grade nature of the new drill hole intercepts combined with the success of EMU Geology Exploration Pty Ltd’s exploration efforts has certainly indicated an increasing optimism in the Georgetown region. It is an area that is currently the focus of extensive exploration activity and could potentially become a major gold mining region in the future.
This is an exciting time for EMU Geology Exploration Pty Ltd and the Georgetown region. The assay results have set the tone by showing that this could be the site of a future gold mine, and EMU is determined to find out whether their success can be repeated further down the line. It is hoped that further exploration into the region will provide more information and answer any lingering questions about the gold potential in the area.
