Aton Resources Incorporation has drilled more high-grade gold-polymetallic sulfide mineralization at Rodruin, with returns of around 7.04 g/t gold, 47.2 g/t silver, 0.63% copper, and 7.18% zinc over 36.9 meters.
This comes as the company published the latest results of the Phase 2 diamond drilling program, conducted at the Rodruin gold exploration project, which is located in the company’s 100% owned Abu Marawat Concession in the Eastern Desert of Egypt.
“The mineralization at Rodruin is clearly unusual and is structurally complex, as we have appreciated since its initial discovery, and our exploration team is working to piece it together. As at the Hamama and Abu Marawat deposits the base metal credits are very significant, and we are assessing various options to see if the copper and zinc may also be viable to recover,” Tonno Vahk, Aton’s Interim CEO, commented.
“Meanwhile we are continuing to push ahead with drilling the nearer surface oxide material, with our efforts focused on the establishment of a maiden mineral resource estimate at Rodruin,” Vahk said.
