Remobilisation drilling update

Tectonic Gold plc (TDIM: TTAU), the Intrusive Related Gold System (“IRGS”) explorer, is pleased to report the recommencement of drilling at the Company’s flagship Specimen Hill project in Queensland, Australia, on the high grade Goldsmiths Reef mine.


  • 350m deep diamond core at Goldsmith’s Reef to be completed, targeting bullseye geophysical target below high-grade historic mine.
  • Assays returned grades of 8.17g/t Au over 1m in distal veins in the last ten meters before the hole was suspended due to bad weather
  • The primary target zone is at 200m+
  • Expect to complete drilling in two weeks with assays reported shortly thereafter
  • Will provide further updates at the VSA Capital – Aquis Investor Showcase on 29th November.

Mr. Brett Boynton, Managing Director – Tectonic Gold Plc

“Field reconnaissance during September confirmed the ground conditions were suitable to remobilise, however a general shortage of rigs delayed our restart until earlier this week. We began drilling yesterday and with a week of good weather forecast we expect to complete this final hole left over from the 2021 campaign and have samples off to the lab for assay in the next two weeks.

This is an exciting hole for the Company as we are chasing the extension of a known high-grade system that has been mined close to surface. The intersection of narrow, high-grade, veins just before we were forced to suspend the campaign is very encouraging. These veins are presenting at about 110m, well before the target zone and we hope to see convergence of these distal veins as we close in on the target zone.

This is a relatively quick campaign and we expect to have assays back within weeks of the completion.

These results will fill out our data package for discussions with potential joint venture partners and the recent corporate activity on the gold sector is encouraging.

We will have in-field geological analysis completed in time for the VSA Capital - Aquis Investor Showcase on the 29th of November and look forward to sharing the news then. Please join us via the link below.”
