Wishbone Gold Plc (AIM: WSBN, AQSE: WSBN), is pleased to update the market regarding the Wishbone II Gold-Copper drill program in Northern Queensland.


The drill programme is proceeding well and approximately 25% of the designed programme have been completed to date.


Initial Reverse Circulation (RC) drill samples have been transported back to the Terra Search office in Queensland and are undergoing tests prior to being sent to the lab for full analysis. The Initial tests confirm the presence of elevated copper, coincident with visible oxidised copper and primary chalcopyrite mineralisation.


Terra Search's logging of the RC chips confirms the presence of a felsic, high level, crowded porphyry intrusion often found associated with productive, high level gold systems in the Ravenswood-Charters Towers, district such as at Mt Wright and Mt Leyshon.


Wishbone Gold's QLD Exploration properties are situated in the highly prospective Charters Towers-Ravenswood district in north Queensland's premier gold province. They consist of 54 sub-blocks amounting to 174 km2 of wholly owned licences and located only 10km from 5 million Oz Ravenswood gold mine.


Richard Poulden, Wishbone Gold's Chairman, commented, "We are delighted that initial tests came back confirming copper is present in this current round of drilling and we await full results from the lab to confirm grades and thickness intercepts. The indication that a porphyry style intrusion is present is extremely good news and we look forward to continuing the drilling over the coming weeks."
