Assay results are expected to be available from the end of October 2019

Rimfire Pacific Mining NL (ASX:RIM) has completed Phase I drilling at the Northern Gold, Northern Area and Southern Area within its Fifield exploration licences in central NSW.

Samples have been dispatched to the laboratory with results expected to be received by the end of October 2019.

The results of Phase I drilling will guide the final planning and drill hole locations for Phase II drilling activities that are expected to commence in November 2019 following completion of routine NSW Government drilling approval processes.

Northern Area and Southern Area drilling

The first phase of aircore drilling at the Northern Area consisted of 11 holes totalling 408 metres with an average depth of 37 metres.

At the Southern Area aircore drilling consisted of 14 holes totalling 634 metres with an average depth of 45 metres.

The aircore drilling for both areas is designed to obtain bedrock samples to provide lithological, geochemical and alteration information in areas which are buried beneath variable thickness of transported alluvial (not in situ) soils.

Northern Gold prospect drilling

The first phase of RC drilling at the Northern Gold prospect consisted of two holes totalling 165.5 metres.

The Northern Gold prospect is 2 kilometres north of Sorpresa, and drilling is designed to test the bedrock beneath a +400-metre-long x 80-metre-wide zone of historical mine pits.

Rimfire managing director Craig Riley said: “We are looking forward to the results from the first drilling of bedrock at the Northern Gold prospect.

“The results will undoubtedly significantly influence the next phase of work in this area.

“The results of aircore drilling from the Northern and Southern areas will provide significant insights into design of next phase of drilling activity and assessment of areas for large scale gold or copper gold mineralised systems such as the local Northparkes and Cowal mines.”
