Omagh Minerals (OML), a 100% operating subsidiary of Galantas Gold, has discovered major gold intersections at its Omagh, County Tyrone property, through a drilling program.
The company has conducted the drilling campaign at OML’s Joshua vein. The location of the three holes is on the south of the vein and one hole to the northern part. Additional drill campaign along with channel sampling has been conducted at the Joshua vein and the results are pending. The company has drilled HQ sized holes by means of a triple tube technique for maximum upturn. Core loss was 49%, 47%, 49% and 30% correspondingly, as a result of the presence of friable material in the sampled mineralization segments. The company has assessed the true thickness of every intersection by considering the presence of a vertical vein having a vertical depth at the mineralised interval’s crest.
OML has extended the drill campaign to 15,000 m and is targeting primarily on the extension of the vein resources that are near to the operating, present open pit gold mine.
Geological personnel have taken the samples under the direction of R.Phelps, CEO and President. Ireland-based OMAC Laboratory has tested the samples for gold by using the fire assay method and other metals using the ICP-ORE technique.
