Latest assay results:
Borehole Number 2 (BH 002) intersected the Merensky Reef at a depth of 1 526 metres below datum. The results have revealed a grade (3PGE + Au) of 6.25g/t over a channel width of one metre.
Previously reported assay results:
The Company previously reported that Borehole Number 4 (BH 004) had intersected the Merensky Reef at 1 451 metres below datum. Assay revealed an average PGM grade over a one metre channel of 5.29g/t (3PGE + Au).
Both assay results exceed the Targeted Resource Estimate of 4.60 g/t over a one metre thickness and are in line with results reported on neighbouring properties.
Drilling, sampling and internal quality assurance and control (QAQC) are overseen by consulting geologist, Mr S. Gain. Assays are carried out by Genalysis Laboratory Services.
