TNM Drill Down Sept. 23-30, 2022.

Nice Boulder Assets (ASX: GBR), Lumina Gold (TSXV: LUM) and Superior Gold (TSX: SGI) led the drilling assay outcomes for the week of Sept. 23 – 30 with tasks in Australia, Ecuador and Australia, respectively.

That gap 22MBR038, additionally within the excessive grade Mulga Invoice vein, minimize 15 metres of 35.8 grams gold per tonne from 88 metres for a grade x width of 537. 

The brand new holes are about 90 metres east of earlier drilling, the corporate stated in a information launch.

“Mulga Invoice is continuous to ship a string of extraordinarily high-grade gold intersections as we proceed defining the extent and orientation of those constructions,” Nice Boulder managing director Andrew Paterson stated in a launch. 

Diamond core drilling at Lumina’s Cangrejos challenge, returned the second finest gap of the week. Gap C22-239 minimize 453.7 metres of 0.64 gram per tonne gold from floor for a grade x width of 290, the corporate stated.
