A.I.S. Resources finds antimony at Fosterville-Toolleen

Mr. Phillip Thomas reports


A.I.S. Resources Ltd. has discovered elevated antimony levels in the eastern portion of the company’s Fosterville-Toolleen gold project.

AIS Resources CEO Phil Thomas emphasized, « This is a major breakthrough for our exploration team’s efforts at our Toolleen Fosterville Gold Project. It is well known that antimony is a key pathfinder for gold as is evident at the neighbouring Kirkland Lake Fosterville Gold Mine and the Mandalay Resources Costerfield Gold Project. Antimony was the biggest pathfinder element for the Kirkland Lake Fosterville Gold Mine discovery. Costerfield is producing both gold and antimony with a gold grade of 15 g/tonne. The Fosterville Gold Mine is only 10 km and the Costerfield Gold Mine is 31 km from our Fosterville Toolleen Gold Project. » We are very encouraged by an exceptionally high result of 510 ppm Antimony (Sb) returned from Drill Hole TRC017 in weathered Ordovician rocks located at the eastern end of the northern traverse. The Company has combined the RC drilling, soils and gravity structural geology to develop a robust rigorous exploration program for the coming months. We are planning follow-up drilling in the vicinity of the higher-grade Antimony (Sb) results continuing to the east and in the area of elevated gold in the southern traverse.

https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/b4791930-d73b-470f-b656-a6ecda733b15 The multi-element assays were conducted to test for pathfinder elements associated with local gold deposits such as at the Fosterville and Costerfield operations. Typically, pathfinders such as antimony and arsenic exhibit a greater footprint than the ore grade gold. Locating elevated areas of pathfinder mineralisation is very helpful in guiding the focus of exploration.
