    10.5 metres @ 2.3% Cu, 1.5% Pb, 18.0% Zn, 1.4g/t Au & 278g/t Ag (true width ~8 metres) of massive sulphide
    17 metres @ 1.9% Cu, 0.6% Zn & 15g/t Ag (true width ~13 metres) of footwall stringer Massive sulphide contains significant gold grades Higher grade, similar style, to the Jaguar & the Teutonic Bore Mine
    Follow-up diamond drilling has commenced

    Jabiru Metals Limited (Jabiru) is very pleased to advise that the Company has received assay results for the recently reported massive sulphide intersection at Bentley, which confirms that it is of comparable grade, style and tenor to both the Jaguar and the Teutonic Bore mineralisation.
    Diamond drill hole 08SWDD004 intersected 10.55 metres from 433.25 metres down-hole (inclusive of a 0.35 metres wide dolerite sill) (true width ~8 metres) of copper-zinc-richmassive sulphide at Bentley: 10.55 metres @ 2.3% Cu, 1.5% Pb, 18.0% Zn, 1.4g/t Au and 278g/t Ag
    (true width ~8 metres)

    Gold grades within the massive sulphide intercept at Bentley are of higher tenor than the Jaguar mineralisation, and occur in association with elevated copper and silver values.
    Within the massive sulphide an intercept of 5 meters @3.5% Cu, 2.4g/t Au and 422g/t Ag from 436.55 metres was returned.
    The massive sulphide intercept is immediately underlain by an adjacent 17 metres of footwall stringer mineralisation (from 443.8 metres) which returned an intercept of:
    17.0 metres @ 1.9% Cu, <0.1% Pb, 0.6% Zn, 0.2 g/t Au and 15g/t Ag (true
    width ~13 metres)
    Bentley is located approximately 4.6 km south of the Jaguar Mine and 6 km by road to the
    Jaguar processing facility (Figure 1: Project Location Plan).

    The sulphide intercept is at approximately 370 metres vertical depth, much the same depth as Jabiru’s Jaguar mine, and remains potentially open in all directions (Figure 2: Bentley Long Section & Figure 3: Bentley Cross Section).
    The location of Bentley, being only 6km south of the Jaguar plant by road, is particularly encouraging as any future development will be ideally situated to utilise the existing Jaguar processing plant and related infrastructure. The Jaguar concentrator has been intentionally designed to permit flexibility withregard to rates of throughput and head grade, which in turn would permit an aggressive development program of minable Bentley ore.
    Further drilling, which has now commenced, is planned to follow up the discovery
    intersection at Bentley with the aim of determining the size, grade and structure of the massive sulphide system.
