Galileo’s Silverton gold project dishes up decent drill results
Nevada is highly prospective for gold

Initial results from a reverse circulation drilling programme currently being undertaken on the Silverton Gold project in Nevada have yielded promising results.

Silverton is held by Galileo Resources PLC (LON:GLR) but the work is being undertaken by joint venture partner Orogen Gold PLC (LON:ORE), which is hoping to earn in to an initial 51% interest by spending US$400,000.

So far, Orogen has completed 1,274 metres of drilling on five holes at two initial targets at Silverton, with the longest mineralised intercept running at over 70 metres and grading 0.2 grams per tonne gold.

The best grade occurred across a width of 1.52 metres and rang in at 1.33 grams per tonne of gold.

"The results from the initial test drilling showed gold mineralisation persists at depth along the Silverton Fault over a wide interval,” said Galileo director Andrew Sarosi. However, the company did concede that a search for high grade feeder zones had failed to bear fruit.
