Alex Scanlon, Managing Director and CEO of Barton Gold (ASX: BGD) (OTCQB: BGDFF), joins us to review the recent higher-grade gold drill intercepts from the Area 191 target, as well as more bulk tonnage mineralization exploration results from the Area 51 zone at the Tunkillia Project in South Australia.


We start off reviewing the news released on February 14th from the Area 191 target that returned a headline intersection of 3.83 meters @ 68.0 g/t Au from 104.1m depth. A few diamond core drill holes here are assisting in the structural analysis; where gold mineralization appears to concentrated around clusters of high-grade intercepts along a fault. (seen in Figure 3 below).


>> Other intercepts include:


  • LRC001: 10 meters @ 4.08 g/t Au from 109m
  • LRC218: 11 meters @ 6.24 g/t Au from 80m
  • LRC224: 2 meters @ 35.05 g/t Au from 68m
  • LRC514: 8 meters @ 2.16 g/t Au from 112m & 8m @ 5.99 g/t Au from 132m
  • LRC536: 16 meters @ 2.65 g/t Au from 108m


 Tunkillia JORC Resources recently grew to 1.38Moz Au during December 2023, and further resource modelling also underway at Area 51, where recent shallow high-grade results include 44m @ 1.81 g/t Au from 64m, incl. 6m @ 5.85 g/t Au (69m) & 1m @ 19.95 g/t Au (80m).


We discussed with Alex how these new areas could be incorporated into the upcoming resource updates, as well as how the higher-grade zone at Area 191, along with other high-grade resources from the nearby Tarcoola deposit, could eventually be used to increase the overall head grade if blended with the ore from Area 51, and the 223 deposit.
