Coronation North: 91 holes for 10,247 metres completed with a 50 metre x 50 metre drilling pattern and investigating potential extensions to the gold mineralisation to the north and southeast; Coronation open pit: six holes for 814 metres to follow-up on previous intersections; Coronation South: seven holes for 847 metres to investigate the potential for ore shoot repetition between Deepdell North and Coronation; Horse Flat: five holes for 386 metres targeting the Horse Flat Fault for a repetition of fault drag mineralisation seen elsewhere in the Macraes Goldfield; and Frasers Underground: 13 holes for 1,850 metres testing down plunge extensions and a sheeted vein target.
Currawong has identified significant exploration potential for mesothermal quartz vein hosted gold and related placer-style 'deep lead' gold mineralisation at Avoca, and epithermal 'Carlin' style disseminated or sheeted vein hosted gold mineralisation at Bailieston
Drilling intersected a sheeted vein system with silica and carbonate alteration.
It is clear the narrow sheeted vein style of the gold mineralisation defeated the old timer.
Discovery of multiple exploration plays at or near surface including mineralised dykes many metres wide, mineralised structures several hundred metres long, sheeted vein deposits, high-grade narrow veins and shoots in granite and disseminated gold in granite, including:
Other assayed samples (Table 2) of disseminated and sheeted vein mineralisation came from pits along the line of lode.
