Queensland Gold Hills (OZAU) has received final assay results from the recently completed inaugural drill campaign at the Big Hill property in Queensland, Australia.

The 11 hole (1,457m) reverse circulation drilling program targeted extensions to mineralization below historic underground workings at the Queenslander prospect, one of a number of high-grade historic mines in the Talgai Goldfield.

The drilling successfully demonstrated structural continuity of the mineralized vein system ~100m down dip from the base of historical workings. Assay results returned from ALS-Global Brisbane showed moderate-grade intercepts across the vein and altered wallrock, including 10m @ 0.49g/t Au from 97m (BH013), but this initial, modest program did not intersect the higher-grade shoots reported in historical production records.

Queensland Gold Hills CEO and Director, Blair Way, commented on the program’s success.

“While our first drill program at Big Hill did not intercept the grades we were targeting, we were successful in hitting the correct structures and encountered mineralization below the historic workings, as expected. The information provided will be extremely valuable as the team continues to analyze the multi-element geochemistry and vein geometry in order to key in on vectors to higher grade mineralization which will be drill-tested in subsequent programs at other targets on the property. We look forward to announcing upcoming plans and discussing our evolving strategies as we look to demonstrate the extraordinary potential we see in the Talgai Goldfields.”
