Ardea produces gold resource at nickel project
Thewest - Ardea Resources has produced a gold resource at its Big Four project near Menzies that sits within the boundaries of its huge Goongarrie nickel-cobalt project. The maiden gold resource at the project now stands at 15,300 ounces grading a solid 2.7 grams per tonne gold which may be good enough to seek toll treating options in the area.
The resource model has been constructed over a relatively small footprint of 185 metres in strike length and importantly, the mineralisation is still open down plunge.
The Big Four gold deposit itself is a robust 13m wide and has currently been defined to about 190m below the surface, according to Ardea.
