St George Mining Updates on Drilling at East Laverton Property

St George has announced preparations for its high impact exploration program. It has completed two drill holes, WINRC021 and WINRC022, at Windsor and its plans to drill EM conductors at Desert Dragon are imminent.

Altogether, 12 holes have been made for the Windsor drilling campaign, totalling 3,743m of drilling.

WINRC021 has a completed depth of 307m, and intersects a 41m thick zone of anomalous zinc and copper in a footwall sediment. An XRF analysis has indicated zinc values average 3800ppm over a 41m interval, and copper values that average 800ppm over a 65m interval. The WINRC022 drill hole has a depth of 205m.

Drilling at Windsor North’s newly identified nickel sulphide target has commenced, with plans for a 350m RC hole to be drilled. Once drill hole WINRC023 is completed, the drill rig will be mobilised to Desert Dragon to begin testing EM conductors.  

John Prineas executive chairman of St George is pleased with the company’s program. “The downhole EM surveys are the next step in the systematic exploration at Windsor, and we expect some high quality targets to emerge from this work,” he said.

“At Desert Dragon, we have already completed the groundwork to define strong EM conductors in favourable geological positions.”

Downhole electromagnetic surveys of the Windsor drill holes are expected to start next week.
