Genesis Minerals Ltd.'s contained resource at its wholly owned Ulysses gold deposit in Western Australia increased 14% from the October 2018 estimate to 867,000 ounces.
The resource is hosted in 8.5 million tonnes of ore grading 3.2 g/t gold, according to a Dec. 19 news release.
A high-grade portion of the resource, which will be part of the evaluation for the project's feasibility study, was estimated at 4.8 Mt grading 4.5 g/t gold containing 695,000 ounces, at a 2 g/t gold cutoff.
The measured and indicated portion of the mineral resource increased 22% to 574,000 ounces.
The update follows four months of drilling at Ulysses that returned intersections that confirmed and extended a number of high-grade gold zones.
The resource remains open at depth and along strike, and drilling will continue in 2020 to test new areas for further resource expansion, the company said.
