Announcement summary: Western Mines Group Ltd (WMG or Company) (ASX:WMG) is pleased to update shareholders on further assay results received for the maiden drilling program at the Rock of Ages Project. Summary Assay results have now been received for the 1 metre sample intervals from the reverse circulation (RC) drilling program completed at the Company’s Rock of Ages Project (ASX, Completion of Rock of Ages RC Drilling, 9 September 2021). A total of 52 individual 1 metre samples were selected and submitted for follow up geochemical assay based on the previous composite sample results (ASX, Maiden Drilling Intersects High-Grade Gold at Rock of Ages, 14 October 2021). These assay results confirm the high-grade gold potential of the project, with up to 10.85g/t Au seen in hole RARC005, whilst perhaps more encouragingly the results also show evidence for up to 5 stacked gold lodes that appear to correlate well between drill holes. Generally better assay results were seen in fresher, less weathered rock versus the highly weathered upper saprolite. The combination of these three factors (grade, multiple lodes, better results in fresh rock) lends strong support for further drill testing, where broader high-grade zones may hopefully be encountered at depth.
