Castle Minerals – Gold mineralisation identified at Wa South & new prospect identified

Castle Minerals Limited (ASX: CDT) is pleased to announce that RAB drilling at its Wa South prospect in north-west Ghana has confirmed two parallel trending gold zones approximately one kilometre apart.

This represents the first known gold mineralisation in the area and was discovered through soil sampling, auger drilling and RAB and RC drill testing. The east mineralised corridor is accompanied by a wide zone of pyrite alteration within the host sediments.
Castle Minerals Limited (ASX: CDT) is pleased to announce that RAB drilling at its Wa South prospect in north-west Ghana has confirmed two parallel trending gold zones approximately one kilometre apart.

This represents the first known gold mineralisation in the area and was discovered through soil sampling, auger drilling and RAB and RC drill testing. The east mineralised corridor is accompanied by a wide zone of pyrite alteration within the host sediments.
The gold mineralisation was discovered beneath a 2-3m blanket of transported gravels that covers much of the area.

In addition, regional auger drilling 5km north-west has defined the new 800m long Bundi prospect that is the strongest auger anomaly reported to date at Wa South. Further drilling at Wa South is planned to be completed in Q4 2012.
Castle’s Managing Director, Mr Mike Ivey, said; “These results confirm the strong prospectivity of this previously unexplored area. Wa South has always rated very highly in our prospect rankings being in an excellent geological and structural setting for gold and I am sure we will discover additional gold mineralisation as exploration continues.”
