ASX Announcement 16 January 2019 


  • Strong gold in soil geochemical anomalies highlighted throughout Mt Ida Project 
  • Anomalies overlie known mineralized structures and favourable host lithologies 
  • Minimal follow up exploration undertaken on many of these geochemical anomalies 
  • Field reconnaissance to commence early 2019 
  • POW’s being prepared for first pass RC drilling

Alt Resources Ltd (ASX: ARS, Alt or ‘the Company’) is pleased to report collation and review of historical soil geochemistry over the Mt Ida Project has confirmed multiple untested gold in soil anomalies which warrant further investigation and follow up work.

Since the completion of phase 3 RC drilling at Bottle Creek and as part of the ongoing exploration and development of the Bottle Creek and Mt Ida Gold Projects during the later stages of 2018, the Company geologists spent several weeks digitising historical soil geochemistry sampling undertaken by previous exploration companies across the Alt Mt Ida tenement package. The historical reporting being obtained through the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) WAMEX Mineral Exploration Reporting website.

Significant gold in soil geochemistry suggests the Mt Ida Project contains multiple gold prospects outside of the Company’s known and defined resources. Much of the Mt Ida tenure has undergone surface geochemical sampling in particular by Newcrest, La Mancha and Wild Acre Metals who completed several large scale regional soil grids over much of the Mt Ida project which Alt has spent the past two months compiling into a regional soil survey map. The soil sampling has been completed at various grid spacing and is dominated by auger sampling, with selected areas using sieved soils and is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 2 shows the gold in soil trends and areas of interest by project area, being the Quinns, Mt Ida South and Bottle Creek South projects and have been highlighted in Figures 3-5 as areas highest priority for follow up exploration and potential new drill targets for the Company. Many of these areas have had limited follow up exploration work undertaken. Alt is currently preparing Program Of Works (POW’s) for drilling approval in order of priority on targets identified and have scheduled first pass RC drilling to commence in late April 2019

The gold in soil anomalies identified in the Mt Ida South and the Quinns project areas are associated predominantly with the Ballard Fault on the eastern margin being the dominant structure controlling the mineralisation and the Bottle Creek South anomalies are associated with the Mt Ida Shear on the western margin. The Mt Ida Shear being the dominant structure controlling known Au mineralisation at Bottle Creek 3km up strike from Bottle Creek South.

Alt Resources Ltd (ASX: ARS, Alt or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce the final results from the 3 rd stage of RC drilling undertaken at the Bottle Creek Gold Project. The Company has now completed infill drilling at the Southwark deposit, extension drilling at the southern end of the Emu deposit, new drilling at the northern end of the VB pit and between the mined VB and Boags pits (Figure 1)

The recent RC drilling program completed 74 RC drill holes for a total 5,560 metres at the Bottle Creek project covering ~500 metres of additional strike length further supporting the continuity and scale of this project.

All areas drilled are outside of previously mined areas; with Southwark and Emu located approximately 4 km up strike to the north of the VB and Boags open pits as shown in Figure 1. 

All gold and silver assays have now been received for these drillholes completing the latest round of RC drilling results for this 3rd stage drilling at the Bottle Creek Gold Project. All significant assayed results are listed in detail in Table 1. New results will be incorporated into mineralisation wireframes over the coming months and included in an updated Bottle Creek resource estimate in the first quarter of 2019.

Alt’s combined mineral resource Inventory now stands at 3.9 Mt @ 2.07 g/t Au, for 257,000 oz Au2 previously announced 18 October 2018. 

The 3rd stage RC drilling focused on four areas along the mineralised corridor; on the south end of the Southwark resource area, on the south end of the Emu resource area, at the north end of the VB Pit, and between the Boags and VB pits, (Figure 1). 

Part of the recent RC drill program was designed to test mineralisation between the Southwark and Emu ore bodies, with 6 fences drilled covering an additional 150 metres along strike from Southwark south towards Emu. The significant Southwark intercepts listed above support continuity of mineralisation in this area. South of the existing modelled Emu ore body, 12 holes were drilled over 100 metres of strike. All holes intersected mineralisation.

In the VB area 22 holes were drilled, with continuity of mineralisation to the north of the pit confirmed over 100 metres of strike.

  • High grade silver, up to 926 g/t Ag intercepted with gold 
  • Additional resource upgrade from Phase 3 drilling expected in 1st Quarter 2019

Alt Resources Ltd (ASX: ARS, Alt or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce initial results from the 3 rd phase RC drilling program undertaken at the Bottle Creek Gold Project. Recent RC drilling at the south end of the Southwark deposit covered 150 metres of additional strike length. With grades up to 21.1 g/t Au1 and 926.0 g/t Ag2 in individual samples, the results continue to support the continuity of gold + silver mineralisation between Southwark and Emu.

Southwark is un-mined gold deposit that lies approximately 4 km north along strike from the VB and Boags open pits (Figure 1). Alt recently drilled an additional 20 RC drill holes at Southwark (SWKRC045 to SWKRC064) as part of a third phase of resource drilling, for 1,559m. This completes the current round of resource drilling at the Southwark deposit. All significant assayed results are listed in detail in Table 1. Based on these and previous results for Southwark3 , mineralisation appears to be widening with depth, whilst maintaining medium to high grade gold values.
