King Solomon Mines (ASX: KSO) has resumed drilling with two rigs at the Mud-house gold prospect within the Sonid North gold project in Inner Mongolia, China.
A program of 11 diamond holes for 3,100 metres will follow-up the encouraging results announced last month including 21.4 grams per tonne (g/t) gold over 2 metres and widths averaging 1.9 metres (on a 1g/t Au cut-off).
The follow-up program is aimed at establishing grade of, and continuity between, the mineralised structures within the 750 metres strike of the package established to date, and continuing exploration along strike of the 1.8 kilometre Au-in-RAB anomalous zone hosting the package.
Drilling will also investigate the deeper levels of the system for a potentially larger scale source of the widespread low-grade gold enveloping the higher grade structures.
The company expects assay results over the next 3 months.
