Empire Metals Ltd (EEE.L) Initial Drilling Results at Eclipse Gold Project

Positive Initial Drilling Results at Eclipse Gold Project

Empire Metals Limited, the AIM-quoted resource exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the first reverse circulation (‘RC’) drilling assay results at the Eclipse Gold Project, located 55km north-east of Kalgoorlie, Western Australia (‘Eclipse’ or the ‘Project’).

The 2,300m drill programme has initially focused on the Eclipse target within the licence, where a total of 1,710 metres has been drilled to date. The first assay results returned are for drillhole ECRC20_039, which intersected the main vein at Eclipse at approximately 85m from surface: 14m @ 2.57 g/t gold (‘Au’) from 94m downhole (using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off), including 4m @ 4.98 g/t Au from 97m.

Site preparation is also underway at the second of three key targets, Houdini, approximately 1.2km north-west of Eclipse, where drilling is expected to commence shortly.

Mike Struthers, CEO, said: “These first results from the RC programme are encouraging. The drill programme at the Eclipse deposit itself is now nearing completion and we look forward to publishing further assay results and geological details as they become available. It will also be very interesting to see what we find from the first drilling at the Houdini target, which should commence shortly. I look forward to providing more updates in due course.”
