ECR Minerals #ECR – Half-yearly financial results for the six months ended 31 March 2022

LONDON: 30 JUNE 2022 – ECR Minerals plc, the gold exploration and development company, is pleased to announce unaudited half-yearly financial results for the six months ended 31 March 2022 for the Company as consolidated with its subsidiaries (the “Group”), along with a review of significant developments during the period and subsequently.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The gold exploration boom in Victoria, Australia has continued, with material progress made at the Company’s flagship Creswick and Bailieston assets. ECR’s acquisition of the Brewing Lane and Nagambie-Rushworth Road properties has enhanced access and exploration opportunities at both projects.
  • In December 2022, the Company was notified it had been granted licence EL006907 linking Creswick to Ballarat East-Nerrina. The board views this as a key step in building our understanding of the Dimocks Main Shale anomaly and developing ECR’s Creswick project. Also granted was licence EL007484 in East Victoria, situated 50km north of Bairnsdale in the east of the state of Victoria encompassing the alluvial fields of Swifts Creek and the Mid to Upper reaches of the Tambo River.
  • Despite severe delays in receiving assay results during the period due to the impact of COVID-19, the results we did receive from our ongoing drilling campaigns at Bailieston and HR3 delivered substantial progress in both gold grades and our understanding of the regional geology.
  • Drilling and subsequent 3D modelling of HR3 drillholes BH3DD005, BH3DD006 and BH3DD007 earlier in the year revealed a moderate south plunging fold underneath and along strike of the Maori Reef workings. In November 2022 we reported initial results from BH3DD009, the first hole completed, which returned 0.7m @ 28.06g/t Au from 52.7m depth from the Maori Reef. Holes BH3DD010 and BH3DD011 reported consistent gold grades in December 2022, while soil sampling results revealed a larger area of anomalies, supporting a dilational jog model theory developed by our head geologist Adam Jones. In March 2022 further data identified five mineralised zones, all correlated to the Maori Anticline (within the Maori Reef), plus consistent gold grades were identified in hole BH3DD012 and visible gold in hole BH3DD034 (see announcement dated 14 March 2022 for full details).
  • In February 2022, exploration licences EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 were granted to 100% owned subsidiary LUX Exploration Limited (“LUX”), in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland. The licences are located approximately 120km west of the historic Charters Towers Gold Mine in North Queensland and cover 964 km2. Historic stream sediment sampling indicates that the Lolworth Range area is prospective for gold, tungsten and tin.
  • During the period under review, Dr Trevor George Davenport was appointed as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Most recently Dr Davenport consulted for Kryso Resources Plc at the time of the takeover of control of the company by China Nonferrous International Mining Co. Ltd in 2011. In January 2022, Andrew Scott, a communications specialist and media professional was also appointed as a Non-Executive Director. The sad loss of former CEO Craig Brown presented a substantial challenge to the management team. Nonetheless, a committee was formed with Chairman David Tang, and Non-Exec Directors Dr Davenport and Adam Jones, to manage the company up to the appointment of a new CEO.
  • Post-period end, on 11 April 2022 Andrew Haythorpe was appointed as CEO (currently a non-board position). Andrew has more than 20 years of experience managing listed gold miners and explorers on the ASX and TSX as well as working as a mining analyst and actively exploring for gold as a geologist.
  • Post-period end, Ludevico Estacio, the Chairman of Philippines company Cordillera Tiger Gold Resources, Inc., (in which ECR had a 25% shareholding), agreed to sell his shares (1,499,996 in total) to ECR. The consideration of 1,499,996.00 Philippine pesos (approximately £22,000) was paid for in cash, and ECR now holds 2,333,329 Ordinary Shares in Cordillera representing 70% of its issued share capital (see announcement dated 27 April 2022 for full details).
  • Group comprehensive expenses of £324,333 are reported for the six months ended 31 March 2022 (£468,112 for the six months ended 31 March 2021) and net assets of £7,536,209 at 31 March 2022 (£6,442,465 at 31 March 2021).
  • A Group Operating Loss is reported for the six months ended 31 March 2022 of £552,202, compared with £403,079 for the six months ended 31 March 2021.
  • Despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, the board believes ECR is in a robust financial position and continues to provide shareholders with exposure to an exciting range of gold projects.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the six months ended 31 March 2022 the unaudited financial statements of the Group recorded a total comprehensive expense of £324,333.

The Group’s total assets were £7,674,007 at 31 March 2022, compared with £6,522,307 at 31 March 2021. The increase in total assets has occurred largely due to the increase in exploration assets following the capitalisation of exploration expenditure during the period as a result of the current aggressive drilling programme.

The Group held £1,204,289 of cash and cash equivalents at 31 March 2022, compared with £3,928,905 at 31 March 2021.

REVIEW OF PRINCIPAL DEVELOPMENTS DURING THE PERIOD AND SUBSEQUENTLY

The six months to 31 March 2022 and the subsequent period since have been notable as a period of great progress, sadness and change. Former CEO Craig Brown died suddenly at the end of October 2021, and while a committee including Chairman David Tang, and non-exec directors Trevor Davenport and Adam Jones continued to run the Company without interruption, the shock of his sudden loss remains with us to this day. Nonetheless he would be pleased and proud with the operational progress to date, and we believe he would be delighted with the calibre of his recently appointed successor Andrew Haythorpe.

During the period under review, Dr Trevor Davenport was appointed as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Most recently Dr Davenport consulted for Kryso Resources Plc at the time of the takeover of control of the company by China Nonferrous International Mining Co. Ltd in 2011.

In January 2022, Andrew Scott, a communications specialist and media professional was also appointed as a Non-Executive Director. Andrew is well known in the UK and across Australia as a business and markets interviewer. He has worked at Sky News UK, Reuters and Proactive as well as in presenting and media roles at ITV and Television NZ (TVNZ).

Post-period end, on 11 April 2022 Andrew Haythorpe was appointed as Chief Executive Officer (currently a non-board position). Andrew has more than 20 years of experience managing listed gold miners and explorers on the ASX and TSX as well as working as a mining analyst and actively exploring for gold as a geologist. His board experience includes the role of Managing Director at TSX and ASX-listed Crescent Gold Limited, which started with a market capitalisation of $8 million and, under his leadership, reached $250 million within four years. He was also Managing Director of ASX-listed gold producer Michelago Resources and is currently the Managing Director of GoldOz Limited, a gold company seeking to relist on the ASX. As an analyst, Andrew was considered a global leader in the Industrial Minerals sector and rated 12th best gold analyst at Hartley Poynton Ltd.

Currently, through ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”), the board remains focused on the fast-paced drilling programme at Bailieston and Creswick. During the period, large quantities of drill core have been amassed for technical review, processing and assay testing. Although, the impact of intermittent COVID lockdowns on the region has resulted in delays to assay results, our geologist Adam Jones and his team continue to make solid progress. In particular, the ongoing drilling campaign at Bailieston and HR3 delivered substantial progress in both gold grades and our understanding of the regional geology.

Post-period end, Ludevico Estacio, the Chairman of Philippines company Cordillera Tiger Gold Resources, Inc., (in which ECR had a 25% shareholding), agreed to sell his shares (1,499,996 in total) to ECR. The consideration of 1,499,996.00 Philippine pesos (approximately £22,000) was paid for in cash, and ECR now holds 2,333,329 Ordinary Shares in Cordillera representing 70% of its issued share capital (see announcement dated 27 April 2022 for full details of this transaction).

Creswick

At Creswick, in December MGA was notified that license EL006907 linking Creswick to Ballarat East-Nerrina had been granted. The board views this as a key step in building our understanding of the Dimocks Main Shale anomaly and developing ECR’s Creswick asset. The Company has also applied to renew Creswick licence EL006184 for another five years and is awaiting final approval. As the current incumbent, we have first rights over the licence, and our geologist Adam Jones plans to develop the project with soil sampling programmes in the vicinity of the quartz mineralisation identified in the 2021 diamond drilling campaign and to test for sub-cropping gold shoots. The Brewing Lane property at Springmount contains numerous abandoned historical gold workings with some underground exposures that offer opportunities for mapping and sampling, followed up by drilling. The team will also commence evaluation of prospects in the recently approved EL006907 area using exploration techniques that proved successful on EL006184. 

Bailieston

Notwithstanding the delays in receiving assay results, MGA is continuing to progress with drilling at the Bailieston tenements (EL5433), focussing on the Maori Reef and parallel reef systems within the HR3 goldfield. The geology team is also making progress with near-term plans to re-enter and continue exploration on the Blue Moon prospect located on the southern extent of EL5433.  Drilling and subsequent 3D modelling of HR3 drillholes BH3DD005, BH3DD006 and BH3DD007 earlier in the year revealed a moderate south plunging fold underneath and along strike of the Maori Reef workings (see announcement dated 1 July 2022). In November 2022 we reported initial results from the first hole completed, (BH3DD009), which returned 0.7m @ 28.06g/t Au from 52.7m depth from the Maori Reef. Holes BH3DD010 and BH3DD011 reported consistent gold grades in December, while soil sampling results revealed a larger area of anomalies, supporting a dilational jog model theory developed by Adam Jones. In March 2022 further data received identified five mineralised zones, all correlated to the Maori Anticline (within the Maori Reef), plus consistent gold grades in hole BH3DD012 and visible gold in hole BH3DD034.

Post-period end, we reported the highest grade gold intercept yet at hole BH3DD027, HR3 with 0.2m @ 52.5 g/t Au from 126.3m depth. This was followed by HR3 drill hole BH3DD022, which returned a result of 0.5m @ 12.74 g/t Au (see announcements dated 22 April 2022 and 4 May 2022).

Lolworth District of North Queensland, Australia.

In February 2022, exploration licences EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 were granted to ECR’s 100% owned subsidiary LUX Exploration Limited, in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland. The area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host large historical gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, suggesting numerous opportunities to find new deposits. The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanism, which plays host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902. Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

Exploration licence EL007484 in East Victoria was also granted in February 2022. This licence area is situated 50km north of Bairnsdale in the east of the state of Victoria encompassing the alluvial fields of Swifts Creek and the Mid to Upper reaches of the Tambo River.

The Directors believe exploration licence EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Outlook

After a challenging transition period, the directors of ECR Minerals plc are excited about the Company’s near-term and future prospects under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Andrew Haythorpe. As eagerly anticipated assay results begin to arrive, our board, geologists, drilling team and wider staff at the Bendigo headquarters are enthused by the possibility of developing a resource at both the Bailieston and Creswick projects. We are equally encouraged about the prospectivity demonstrated by our new licences at Lolworth Range, North Queensland and our East Victoria exploration licence at Tambo.

These factors, together with the potential to realise shareholder value from our Danglay asset in the Philippines, could result in an exciting year ahead as ECR’s operations and opportunities evolve.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Technical Director Adam Jones Updates on Bumper Grades in Hole 34

Technical Director Adam Jones discusses the bumper gold grades in hole BH3DD034 at HR3, Bailieston. Adam talks through the gold grades discovered at different levels in zones 1-4, and outlines his conclusions for the collective data picture across the Maori Reef and Hard Up Reef. Alan asks whether there is a case for developing a mine on ECR’s land at Nagambie-Rushworth, and Adam discusses the the likely activities across the region. We then look at further developments at Creswick, technical target follow-ups and soil samples, before Adam outlines upcoming activities over the next few months, including drill rig movements, Blue Moon etc.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Multiple High Grade Gold Intercepts from hole BH3DD034 at HR3, Bailieston Victoria

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the exploration and development company focused on gold in Australia, is pleased to announce a progressive update from drilling at HR3, Bailieston with high gold intercepts received for hole BH3DD034. Visible gold was previously announced from this hole (see announcement dated 14th March 2022)

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of the Bailieston Project (EL5433) which contains the gold prospects known as HR3, Cherry Tree, Blue Moon and Black Cat. The projects are operated by ECR’s Australian wholly owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe commented: “This is an outstanding result, capably executed and delivered by Adam and the drill team. As a geologist myself, along with the team, I am excited by the continuity of grade and the manner in which the Maori Anticline is further revealing itself through each assay result. There is clearly much more to come.”

ECR Chairman David Tang added: “There is a palpable sense of excitement at ECR Minerals as the intensive drilling campaign across our Victoria assets is now, despite the delays in assay processing, yielding consistently high gold grades. I am delighted for Adam and the team – this exceptional result today and the continuity of grade between Zone 2 and Zone 3 could well indicate a significant find. We look forward to the remaining assay results from the adjacent holes.”

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Drillhole BH3DD034 returned four high gold grade intercepts at drilled depths; (0.3m@ 20.34 g/t Au from 18.2m), (0.65m @ 13.02 g/t Au from 54.2m), (0.3m @ 10.59 g/t Au from 97.9m) and (0.25m @ 45.0 g/t Au from 149.2m).
  • Visible gold recorded at 149.2m depth.
  • Mineralised zones show continuity to adjacent previously drilled intercepts in hole BH3DD019.

BH3DD034

Hole BH3DD034 was one of four holes completed as follow-up drilling to previously announced hole BH3DD019 (see announcement dated 2nd March 2022), where four mineralised ‘zones’ were identified down-hole. The location of this drilling is shown at the top of the plan in fig 2 (linked above). To date, drilling and geological logging has been completed with assay results pending for complimentary adjacent drillholes BH3DD032, BH3DD033 and BH3DD035.

Hole BH3DD034 was drilled between the 4th and 11th of April 2022, and finished at a total drilled depth of 167.5m. Drilling was completed over six working days averaging 28m per day, which includes mobilisation and setup time. Progress was initially hampered by water loss and broken ground within the first 100m of drilling.

Visible gold was reported at a depth of 149.2m, hosted within a narrow bedded laminated quartz vein. Gold specks up to a particle size of 2mm are present. This vein resulted in an intercept of 0.25m @ 45.0 g/t Au. The immediate wall rock either side of this vein is supported by low, sub-gram gold grades representing a mineralised drilled interval of 6.7m @ 2.13 g/t Au from 146.3m. Three other mineralised zones have been identified further up-hole including 0.3m @ 20.34 g/t Au from 18.2m, 0.65m @ 13.02 g/t Au from 54.2m and 0.3m @ 10.59 g/t Au from 97.9m. Each mineralised zone is approximately spaced throughout the drilled hole depth (see fig 1).

Arsenopyrite (sulphide) crystals in the shape of small lathes and needles were seen within the high-grade interval at 97.9m. Sulphides crystallised in this manner are known to be associated with good gold values, such as those at nearby deposits located at Nagambie and the Fosterville Fault zone.

ECR Geologists have linked some of the four mineralised zones in BH3DD034 to similar zones in hole BH3DD019. Intercepts in hole BH3DD019 are within 50m to the south of intercepts in BH3DD034. Details of the link between mineralised zones can be seen in fig 1. In particular, we have noted the continuity of grade between Zone 2 in BH3DD019 and Zone 3 in BH3DD034. Due to the broken nature of these intercepts, a clear understanding of the dip of mineralisation is not well understood at this stage. The laminated texture of the quartz and the relationship of the angle of quartz intercepts to bedding planes infers that the mineralised zone is likely to be bedding parallel in nature. The veins reside in the hanging-wall of a narrow fault where bedding dip angles change dramatically. This fault contains low gold mineralisation.

LOOKING FORWARD STATEMENTS

With the results of BH3DD034 now received, the board eagerly awaits the results of adjacent holes BH3DD032, BH3DD033 and BH3DD035. Despite the narrow nature of the reported mineralised zones, there is high optimism for continuity of mineralisation as seen currently by the correlating intercepts between hole BH3DD019 and BH3DD034.

It is becoming clear the fold hinge (termed the ‘Maori Anticline’) hosts multiple narrow faults and bedded veins that host gold-antimony (stibnite) mineralisation. Heading south from BH3DD034 toward the intersection of the Maori Reef with the Hard-Up Reef, drilling is now complete for hole BH3DD038. Logging is nearly complete, with samples already in waiting for completion of assays at the laboratory. Similar mineralised zones as seen in BH3DD034 have been identified in the latest drilling and the Company is looking forward to publishing these results in due course. The mineralised system is open immediately to the north of BH3DD034 and it is with this understanding that a complimentary drillhole will be undertaken within this vicinity.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Andrew Scott talks to Andrew Haythorpe

ECR Minerals CEO Andrew Haythorpe talks to Andrew Scott. Andrew discusses the reasons behind the appointment of Adam Jones – his technical knowledge and attention to detail which has resulted in some science based breakthroughs. Andrew says the board are looking at projects wider afield, and discusses the Danglay gold project in the Philippines before returning to Bailieston and the challenges created by the COVID driven assay delays. Andrew looks at Blue Moon, where there are good grades over 2m and a strong antimony association. The drill collars have all been planned by Adam, now awaiting drilling permissions. Andrew then looks at Lolworth, where access agreements have been made with landowners, and with field crews all set they could be ready to go in 6-8 weeks. Andrew looks at the Queensland structure, a multiple host environment, including large porphyry / breccia structures similar to Mt Leyshon & Kitston, plus epithermal veins (similar to Hemlo in Canada) and the historic Charters Towers mine. He concludes with the value opportunity – a great believer in Warren Buffet’s philosophy – why now – GARP – Growth at the Right Price – lots of growth opportunity, good commercial business and jv opportunities with neighbours.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Adam Jones talks to Alan Green

ECR Minerals #ECR interview – Adam Jones talks to Alan Green. We discuss Adam’s site visit to Bailieston and Creswick with new CEO Andrew Haythorpe, before looking at plans to get boots on the ground at the recently awarded Lolworth Range license areas in N Queensland. Adam then discusses the latest developments at Creswick, including recently released LIDAR imagery, and we then look at the recent gold intercepts and developments through drilling at Bailieston, HR3 and the Maori Anticline. Adam talks through the correlation between stibnite and gold, before summarising upcoming developments and delayed assay results.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Drilling Identifies Further High Gold Grades at the Upper-Maori Anticline, Bailieston Victoria

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on gold exploration in Australia, is pleased to provide another update from drilling at HR3 with further high gold grades identified at the upper part of the Maori Anticline in hole BH3DD022.

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of the Bailieston Project (EL5433) which contains the gold prospects known as HR3, Cherry Tree, Blue Moon and Black Cat. The projects are operated by ECR’s Australian wholly owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

ECR Chairman David Tang commented: “Hot on the heels of our best HR3 gold grade yet, Adam Jones and the team have reported another high-grade gold find from the Maori Reef at hole BH3DD022. As the backlog of assay results continue to arrive, our Maori Anticline target model continues to evolve.”

“I know our new CEO Andrew Haythorpe is monitoring developments very closely, and we are very much looking forward to his input as he takes the helm.

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe added: “I am delighted to see that the drilling campaign initiated by my predecessor Craig Brown and capably managed by Adam Jones is bearing fruit. We are seeing a detailed model of the Maori Anticline and surrounding reefs emerging, and once we have the remaining assay results in, the next steps in developing our asset can be set in motion.”      

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Drillhole BH3DD022 has returned a result of 0.5m @ 12.74 g/t Au.
  • The Maori Reef is open for potential mineralisation further to the south-east of BH3DD022.

BH3DD022

Hole BH3DD022 was drilled into the upper part of the Maori Anticline at the point where our geologists had hypothesised the intersection of the Maori Reef and Hard-Up Reef. The Maori Reef was successfully intercepted at the shallow drilled depth of 49.5m, which included 0.5m @ 12.74 g/t Au. This intercept is supported by lower grades either side, making a total foot-wall to hanging-wall intersection of 3.5m @2.93 g/t Au. Although the intercepts are regarded as narrow, there is continuity of grades between previously reported holes BH3DD009, 010 and 011 (see RNS dated 26/11/2021 here and 22/12/2021 here). The Maori Reef system remains open and untested to the south east of BH3DD022 (see fig2).

CURRENT DRILLING PROGRESS

Drilling has now been completed into selected zones of both the upper and north end of the known Maori Reef. Geological logging is helping us to model the Maori Anticline and understand how the main Reef systems consist of narrow stibnite-sulphide veining propagating up through the fold. Recently drilled hole BH3DD034 suggests gold mineralisation is still open along strike to the north, while high grade gold mineralisation and highest grade Gold intercept yet confirmed at hole BH3DD027 (under Hard-Up Reef), along with the result from hole BH3DD022 toward the southern end of the Maori Reef today provide evidence of mineralisation to the south. Further assay results will assist in follow-up drilling as needed.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Result of AGM and Second Drill Rig

At the AGM held earlier today all resolutions were duly approved.

In addition, at the meeting the Company provided an update on the delivery of the second drill rig which the Company had confirmed it had purchased in the announcement on the 27th July 2021. The Directors confirmed there were delays in delivery from China due to high shipping costs and availability, but the Directors expect to have it on site and in use by the end of the summer.

Adam Jones, leading Geologist for ECR’s Victorian projects stated:The use of the second multi-purpose drill rig will be crucial for follow up drilling at projects such as Creswick. We can quickly switch between RC drilling (for bulk-samples and grade) and diamond core (for confirmation of structures) as needed.”

ECR Minerals #ECR – Highest grade Gold intercept yet revealed below Soil Anomaly at HR3, Bailieston

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on gold exploration in Australia, is pleased to provide an update on drilling at HR3 including the highest grade Gold intercept yet below the soil anomaly drilled by hole BH3DD027.

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of the Bailieston Project (EL5433) which contains the gold prospects known as HR3, Cherry Tree, Blue Moon and Black Cat. The projects are operated by ECR’s Australian wholly owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

ECR Chairman David Tang commented: “A significant amount of work has gone into the drilling programme at HR3, and I am delighted that having seen encouraging and consistent gold grades in the assay results to date, today’s result has provided our best intercept yet. Our team hoped that the ground under Hard-Up Reef would reveal a solid result – and it didn’t disappoint!”

“I look forward to working with our new CEO Andrew Haythorpe and Geologist Adam Jones as we build the results from BH3DD027 into the Maori Anticline target model.”

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe added: “As the new CEO my work for the next few weeks entails getting my feet under the proverbial desk. Regardless, given my previous experience as geologist and mining company CEO, along with David and Adam I am very pleased to see the HR3 prospect return the best assay result to date. I look forward to speaking with shareholders as the year progresses.”    

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • ECR Minerals has received the highest single assay result to date from the drilling at Bailieston with 0.2m @ 52.5 g/t Au from 126.3m depth in hole BH3DD027 (reported drilled thickness).
  • Hole BH3DD027 represents assays received from the first of two holes initially drilled into the Hard-Up Reef underneath a previously identified soil anomaly.
  • Drilling continues in HR3 (Bailieston) strengthening the Maori Anticline target model with multiple narrow mineralised structures observed.

The following statements can be referenced to the following link, a plan showing the location of hole BH3DD027 and recently drilled targets awaiting results;

BH3DD027

ECR Minerals announced the identification of four soil anomalies respectively named (A, B, C and D) in the vicinity of the projected Scoulers and Hard-Up Reef lines (see RNS dated 23rd December 2021 “Bailieston (HR3) Soil Sampling Strengthens Mineralisation Model”). Two initial drillholes (BH3DD026 and BH3DD027) were drilled underneath soil anomaly ‘A’. Results for hole BH3DD027 have now been received with the results pending for BH3DD026.

ECR is both pleased and proud to report the best gold intercept to date at Bailieston with 0.2m @ 52.5 g/t Au from 126.3m depth (BH3DD027). This intercept is supported by lower grade foot-wall and hanging-wall mineralisation located between 124 metres and 127 metres drilled depth. Geological interpretation confirms this mineralisation coincides with the Hard-Up Reef. Visible Antimony sulphide (Stibnite) is also present within the shear zone. The best intercept of 52.5 g/t Au ties in with a laminated quartz vein with a stibnite-sulphide shear zone grading at 1.76 g/t Au. All anomalous grades are reported in Table 1 below.

Although mineralisation between 124 metres and 127 metres has a represented drilled width of 3 metres, the low-dip angle of mineralisation to the drill core represents the true width of mineralisation at approximately 0.79 metres, demonstrating that at least some of the mineralisation at HR3 will likely be of a high-grade, narrow-vein style gold deposit.

CHANGE OF ASSAY METHOD

Visible Stibnite (Antimony Sulphide) has been observed to occur in some of the drillholes into the Maori Anticline. As gold has been the primary mineral of interest, earlier assay results from the drilling have not been analysed for the Antimony content. Until recently, the preferred assay method has been to leach the bulk 2 kg drill sample using a cyanide solution. This is followed by fire assay of the residual tails from the solution, thereby tracing any potential undissolved coarser gold particles. With the increasing importance of Stibnite, the Company has refined the assay method to include such metals as Antimony. Additionally, all samples will have an initial 50g fire assay with only bulk leaching amendable to samples that show trace gold levels. This will save costs and speed up results without compromising quality of the assay.

CURRENT DRILLING PROGRESS

Drilling has now been completed into selected zones of both the upper and north end of the known Maori Reef. Geological logging is confirming our understanding of the Maori Anticline and how the main Reef systems consist of narrow stibnite-sulphide veining propagating up through the fold. Recently drilled BH3DD034 suggests gold mineralisation is still open along strike to the north. Assay results from this drilling will assist in follow-up drilling as needed.

Currently, the drilling programme is designed to investigate Scoulers Reef and associated soil anomalies which run along strike, parallel to the Maori Anticline. Some of the drillholes will be extended to target the Maori Anticline at depth to aid geological interpretation.
