Centurion Minerals has reported considerable gold assays from the rock channel samples obtained from the Zulham prospect in the Banda Raya property, Indonesia. These results have shown large epithermal and near surface intrusion-related mineralized gold in the region.
The company has taken 105 rock samples from the Zulham prospect and encountered 10-14.5 g/t gold in four samples, 6-14.5 g/t gold in eight samples, 1-3.9 g/t gold in 18 samples, 0.1-0.9 g/t gold in 17 samples.
All the assays were taken from sawn rock channel samples of 1 m, except for four tests in the 1-3.9 g/t gold group of rock chip samples. At present, the company is preparing to start a phase I drill campaign in the region at the earliest.
The location of the Zulham prospect is in the Miwah-Menawan lineament’s east-west trending and around 1875 m above the sea level. The company has outlined the mineralization over an area of 2 to 7 m thickness and 300 m long and the mineralization stays open in every direction. Centurion has considered that gold occurs in comb textured sheeted veins, hydrothermal breccias having sulfide cements, sphalerite-galena-dominated stockworks and sulphide veins, and sulfide disseminated vuggy breccias.
Additionally, the location of the Zulham prospect is around 750 m to the northeast part of the formerly discovered Keladi prospect, wherein Highlands Pacific encountered 2-27 g/t of gold over 500 m from the nine rock chip samples in the vein system. Keladi and Zulham lie in a multiple-ring circular formation.
