Subiaco, WA / January 8, 2018 / JMN Wire / Auroch Minerals Limited (ASX: AOU) (Auroch or the Company) advises that assay results from the final two (2) holes at Tisová (TIDD001 & TIDD004) have been received. While gold results were encouraging (up to 2.73/t Au) the cobalt and copper results are both: lower grade, and across narrower intervals than expected from the visual logging of the core. Results for target metals from all samples are presented in Table 2.
CHAIRMAN Mr Glenn Whiddon said. “While the results are not as hoped for, analysis of the drill core versus the previous grab samples suggest a different origin for the two sets of samples within the large Tisová deposit. We believe this to be a logical explanation for the drilling results based upon the historical mining, dating back to 1600’s. This implies that there remains a cobalt rich portion of the orebody that was not tested by our initial four drill holes and further investigation is warranted."
