Yandal Resources Ltd announced results from a recently completed Sub Audio Magnetic survey at the Gordons Dam prospect within the Gordons gold project located in the highly prospective Kalgoorlie-Boulder Region of Western Australia. The survey was carried out in late July and was a direct follow-up to highly encouraging gold intercepts returned from reverse circulation and Air-core drilling completed in March and June 2019. The RC drilling included high grades up to 1m @ 47.96g/t Au within shallow palaeochannel sediments and broad primary intercepts within altered porphyry rocks at depth including 15m @ 0.95g/t Au with 8m @ 1.16g/t Au. The AC drilling returned multiple bottom of hole intercepts in bedrock covering an area of approximately 200m in diameter including 5m @ 2.44g/t Au.

Mr Lorry Hughes MD of Yandal Resources' commented "The first pass SAM survey appears to have delineated coincident structural and conductive targets in a number of positions along strike from gold mineralisation intersected in reconnaissance style drilling. SAM is a geophysical technique that allows for the simultaneous high definition mapping of both the magnetic and electrical properties in the ground and it is well suited to overcome the difficulties of highly conductive surface layers such as those contained in salt lake environments which occur in the Gordons prospect area. The new targets confirm the highly prospective mineral potential of the Gordons Dam prospect and the Company is advancing approvals and conducting preparatory activities ahead of RC drill testing in September".
