    • Grab samples highlights: 167 g/t Au, 33 g/t Au, 24.8 g/t Au and 4.2 g/t Au

Trieste – Gold with Lithium potential

  • Newly recognized lithium potential associated along a structural contact of mafic volcanic rocks and granitoid rocks.
  • The property is situated 25km Southwest along strike from Winsome Resources lithium discovery at Adina, highlighted by 1.34% LiO2 over 107.60 m
  • Gold mineralization is associated with metamorphosed BIF’s with magnetic highs
  • Gold is found within quartz sulphide (pyrite, pyrrhotite, arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite) veins

Joubert – Gold

  • Gold mineralization is associated with quartz sulphide (pyrite, pyrrhotite, and arsenopyrite) veins
    • Channel sample highlights: 0.83 g/t Au over 1.50 m, and 1.10 g/t Au over 0.25 m
    • Grab sample highlights: 6.81 g/t Au, 0.30 g/t Au, and 0.60 g/t Au
