MinRex Resources Ltd (ASX:MRR) is preparing for the next phase of fieldwork in WA's East Pilbara, including exploration at all four of its gold project areas around Marble Bar -  Daltons, Bamboo Creek, Marble Bar North and Marble Bar South.

During the December 2018 quarter, extensive metal detecting was completed on all four East Pilbara project areas.

Marble Bar North

Five small gold nuggets totalling 1.5 grams in weight were recovered at the Marble Bar North project area, along with gold-bearing quartz rocks.

Two quartz rock specimens were also collected, which activated the metal detector, and upon close examination were seen to contain small particles of gold on their surfaces.

Mapping in this area also uncovered a layered, fine-grained basal gravel deposit under a surficial coarse-grained quartz scree deposit.

During 2019, the next phase of fieldwork in the East Pilbara will include further rock sampling, soil sampling and detailed geological mapping.

This will be used to better understand these complex gold, base metal and polymetallic mineralised systems.

MinRex’s work will aim to build on the results received from the previous four exploration programs completed in 2018.

The company plans to commence the new program in March or April 2019, after the current wet season in the Pilbara.

Deflector Extended Gold Project

The next stage of work at the Deflector Extended Gold Project will include collection of further surface rock and soil samples, along with the commencement of heritage survey activities.

The field sampling programs will aim to further pinpoint the most anomalous areas for the subsequent drilling.

This work will concentrate on the already defined anomalous zones, but will also include some further reconnaissance work elsewhere in the Deflector project.
