The company is aiming to define JORC-compliant resources over Mt Freda, Evening Star and Golden Mile including 8 historical high-grade gold prospects with more than 8 kilometres of outcropping mineralisation.

Ausmex also recently appointed Kieren Whittock as exploration manager, tasked with the role of supervising and managing the extensive drilling program.

Whittock said: “I am extremely excited to be involved with Ausmex and to lead the Queensland discovery team.

“Ausmex currently hold an exciting tenement package at Cloncurry and I look forward to delivering positive results for Ausmex shareholders through high-quality, targeted exploration.”

Whittock was previously responsible for on-site exploration at the Hastings Technology Metals Yangibana REE Project, where he supervised 80,000 metres of exploration drilling over 5 years.

The program defined a 22-million-tonne JORC resource which advanced the project through grassroots exploration to development.

The program will begin on the northern end of the conductor targeting IOCG mineralisation via scissor holes progressing south as it plunges towards Newcrest Mining’s (ASX:NCM) drilling targets south of the Mt Freda mine.

Newcrest has also begun drilling a tier-one IOCG target adjacent to the Mt Freda Complex, with the anomaly continuing into Ausmex’s tenements under a recently established farm-in agreement with Exco Resources Limited. 

The company has located drill pads within about 400 metres of Ausmex’s tenure and planned drill hole locations.
