Ausmex Mining Group Ltd (ASX:AMG) has received additional assay results from its 15,000-metre drilling program underway at the Mt Freda Complex in Cloncurry, Queensland.

Both reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drill rigs are currently on site targeting high-grade gold extensions to the historical resource.

RC results from the Shamrock Prospect include 5 metres at 8.0 g/t from 25 metres, 5 metres at 9.0 g/t from 27 metres and also 7 metres at 10.5 g/t gold from 23 metres was drilled at Falcon.

Shamrock and Falcon are both historical open pits in the Golden Mile area within Mt Freda.

Ausmex aims to define further high-grade gold resources and review the potential to recommence mining at Mt Freda. 

Diamond drilling continues to support IOCG porphyry system presence

Diamond drilling continues to follow up the November 2018 intersection of 67 metres at 1.33% copper and 0.47 g/t gold.

Drilling is targeting an iron-oxide copper-gold (IOCG) porphyry system at depth.

Notably, diamond drilling has discovered a mineralised Tuffisite Pipe stemming from a potential large porphyry source.
