Assays ranged between 4.6 grammes per tonne over 7.5 metres to 39 g/t gold in one narrow section.

Drilling was carried out over a strike length of 80 metres to a depth of 180m.

Eric Zurrin, chief executive, said the results were further evidence of high-grade extension at New Luika's Bauhinia Creek deposit.

“The mineralization is easily accessible from our existing underground operations and will require minimal capital investment.

“Proving the high-grade extensions has been a priority for Shanta as we continue to focus on adding to our current mine life."
