The AIM-listed precious and base metal-focused resource company said that at the Western Extension of the Double Event Prospect soil sampling has been completed on the gold mineralised trend.
The firm said a total of 424 soil samples and 12 rock samples have been within the last few weeks of field work and all the samples have been submitted to the laboratory for gold analysis, with results awaited.
Rockfire also said soil sampling has also been completed at the Cardigan Dam Prospect, which lies within the Lighthouse tenement and was explored in 1990 by Esso Australia, Aberfoyle and CRA Exploration.
The group noted that a total of 240 soil samples were recently collected and these have also been submitted to the laboratory for gold analysis with results awaited.
It added that further soil sampling has also now commenced at the Copper Dome Porphyry Copper Project in Central Queensland to extend the soil sampling completed in late March 2019.
As announced on 22 March 2019, strongly anomalous copper-in-soil was returned up to 779ppm (parts per million) of copper and the anomalism extends over the southern and western limits of the area surveyed in March.
The group said the soil sampling program currently underway is designed to adequately test areas of mapped porphyry outcrop, as well as areas which returned very high-grade rock samples of up to 23.4% Cu.
Rockfire has an option to acquire Copper Dome, which expires on 23 May 2019 and the ongoing soil sampling exploration program and its results will contribute towards a decision whether to exercise the option.
