MinRex Resources Ltd (ASX:MRR) has received results from its fourth evaluation and sampling program at its 70% owned East Pilbara tenements in Western Australia.

A field team was mobilised in October 2018 to commence a metal detecting and sampling program, focussing on the gold potential and especially conglomerate-hosted gold potential.

East Pilbara projects

During this work, five small gold nuggets were recovered at the Marble Bar North Project area, adding to the six nuggets collected there in the previous December 2017 metal detecting exercise.

A buried basal gravel layer, about 30-35 centimetres thick was identified at Marble Bar North, which may be the source of the gold nuggets.

The other project areas were also visited and extensive metal detecting was conducted, but without the recovery of any further nuggets.

More exploration planned

Further exploration programs are due to commence at the East Pilbara Project areas as soon as possible after the summer months.
