Drilling has resumed at a central Queensland gold-silver project following encouraging maiden drill program results.

The new phase of drilling at the Orion Gold Aurora Flats Prospect, within the company’s 100 per cent-owned Connors Arc Epithermal gold-silver project, will test the epithermal system down-dip and along strike from hole AFRCD012.

“Based on the metal content returned and the epithermal textures seen within the vein and associated breccia, the company considers follow-up drilling at this prospect to be high priority,” the company said in a statement.

Drilling will also test a zone of veining to the north of the Aurora Flats prospect where AFRC002 intersected quartz veining with similar geochemistry to that observed in AFRC001.

“Given this hypothesis and the results from drilling beneath AFRC001, the company considers that testing of the epithermal system down-dip from AFRC002 to be a high priority target.”

Initial assay results from the drilling are anticipated to be received during April 2015.
