Indiana Resources Ltd. said Oct. 12 that it has intersected strong anomalous gold mineralization at two prospects during recent drilling at its Nachingwea copper-gold project in Tanzania.
Limited reconnaissance drilling has confirmed gold anomalism over 9.5 kilometers of strike at the Naujombo prospect and over 5.5 km of strike at the Kishugu prospect.
Managing Director Campbell Baird said the first round of drilling at the two prospects was designed to establish whether surface gold was present in the bedrock.
The levels of anomalism found in the bedrock reached a maximum of 1 g/t over 3 meters, but are typically in the range of 20 parts per billion to 200 ppb.
According to Indiana Resources, the quantity of gold in the system is substantial even at these relatively low levels.
The company now plans to review all of the data to determine priority drilling targets. Planning for a second stage of drilling at Naujombo and Kishugu is underway.
