PNX Metals begins diamond drilling at VMS deposit

Published on March 21st, 2019

The Fountain Head gold mineralisation is also being finalised with studies underway to inform the Hayes Creek DFS including those required for government and environmental approvals.

PNX Metals Ltd (ASX:PNX) has started diamond drilling at the Iron Blow volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit within its Hayes Creek Zinc-Gold-Silver Project in the Pine Creek region of the Northern Territory.

Drilling is designed to target the eastern and western massive sulphide zones with two diamond drill holes planned for about 500 metres.

The definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the project has also restarted following the successful completion of a pre-feasibility study (PFS) in July 2017, which confirmed the promising future of the project as a low-cost, high-margin zinc and precious metal mine.

Modelling of the newly delineated gold mineralisation is also being finalised.

The value of mining the gold mineralisation versus using the historic open pits as the (in-pit) tails location for the Hayes Creek project is being assessed, as well as whether the two strategies might be combined.

CSA Global is finalising a structural model that will help understand controls around the gold mineralisation at Fountain Head, Tally Ho and Banner for future drill targeting and mineral resource estimation.
