Alto Metals Ltd continues to expand Indomitable’s gold resources with promising latest assay results

The geology discovered in the area suggests a “vast and fluid-rich mineralized system”, which the company is eager to drill.

Alto Metals Ltd’s (ASX:AME) step-out drilling campaign at Indomitable, conducted late last year, returned significant gold results for the company.

The Indomitable deposit is part of the 900 square kilometer Sandstone Gold Project in Western Australia. It is part of the Indomitable Camp, which is currently defined over a length of 2 kilometers in the northwest, southeast direction Indomitable/Vanguard/Havilah which extends over 20 kilometers and is part of the priority area “Alpha Domain “. ‘ target area.

“At Indomitable, we have now defined mineralization over a strike length of 500 metres, with numerous wide intersections of strong gold mineralization, encountered at shallow depths, which remain open at depth and along strike,” said the general manager Matthew Bowles.

“Such an unusually deep alteration profile suggests that the structures of mineralization at the Indomitable deposit are long-lived and extensive, which is encouraging as it indicates the potential for a much larger system.”

The results will increase the overall resource

The new assay results come from 22 reverse circulation (RC) holes drilled at Indomitable over 3,074 meters drilled on 40 by 40 meter spacing at an average depth of 140 meters. Of the total 22 RC holes drilled, 21 intersected gold mineralization.

The company carried out the drilling to test the lateral extensions of the high-grade plunging shoots of the deposits and believe the results will extend the overall mineralization outside of the current resource, both laterally and at depth.

Significant historical core holes have been followed up with RC, for inclusion in future mineral resource work.

Camp Indomptable currently has an inferred mineral resource of 1.7 million tonnes at 1.5 g/t gold for 74,000 ounces. These resources remain open laterally and at depth.

Expansion Highlights

The company reports significant one-meter fire test results, including:

➢ 21 meters at 2.0 g/t gold at 46 meters, including 1 meter at 14.9 g/t at 61 meters and including 1 meter at 6.3 g/t at 66 meters, and 11 meters at 2 .5 g/t at 92 meters, including 2 meters at 7.0 g/t from 93 meters;

➢ 15 meters at 2.2 g/t from 44 meters, including 2 meters at 13.2 g/t from 45 meters, and 25 meters at 1.2 g/t from 65 meters, including 1 meter at 11.5 g/t from 71 meters;

➢ 16 meters at 1.1 g/t from 76 meters, including 2 meters at 5.3 g/t from 83 meters, which ended in mineralization;

➢ 24 meters at 0.7 g/t from 82 meters, including 4 meters at 2.2 g/t from 95 meters; and

➢ 29 meters at 1.0 g/t from 113 meters and 15 meters at 0.6 g/t from 154 meters, which ended in mineralization.

The step-out drilling also intersected a number of broad areas of low-grade ‘halo’ mineralization, which is encouraging as it further suggests that the indomitable camp is a large fluid-rich mineralized system. The results indicate that the mineralization continues to the northwest and remains open.

Extension drilling results include 27 meters at 0.7 g/t from 78 meters, including 6 meters at 1.8 g/t from 78 meters and 21 meters at 0.8 g/t from 125 meters, including 10 meters at 1.0 g/t. t from 136 meters.

“RC drilling is expected to begin in the coming weeks, we are eagerly awaiting IP and gravity survey results and our mineral resource update remains on track for this quarter,” Bowles said.

“Our systematic approach to exploration continues to pay off and we are excited about what the year ahead can bring to Alto shareholders.”
