The Auld Creek Prospect is contained within Siren’s Golden Point exploration permit and is situated between the highly productive Globe Progress mine, which historically produced 418koz @ 12.2g/t Au, and the Crushington group of mines that produced 515koz @ 16.3 g/t Au.
More recently OceanaGold Limited (OGL) mined an open pit and extracted an additional 600koz of gold from lower grade remnant mineralisation around the historic Globe Progress mine.
The Auld Creek mineralisation extends for over 2km. Auld Creek epizonal mineralisation contains high grade gold and massive stibnite veins similar to the Costerfield and Fosterville mines in Victoria, Eastern Australia.
The gold-antimony mineralisation extends from Auld Creek south through Globe Progress and the Cumberland prospects and on to Big River, a strike length of 12kms with 9kms in Siren’s permits and the remaining 3kms in the Globe Progress reserve area.
Siren’s first drillhole ACDDH004 at the Auld Creek prospect intersected both the Fraternal and Bonanza Shoots.
- The Fraternal Shoot intersected 20.8m at 5.9g/t Au, 2.6% Sb for 12.0g/t AuEq from 116.2m, including 4.6m @ 10.7g/t Au, 3.9% Sb for 19.9g/t AuEq.
- The Bonanza Shoot intersected 3.5m @ 4.3g/t Au from 53.3m.
Recent drill results confirm historic drill hole results.
