Hillgrove confirms gold prospect in West Papua
Hillgrove Resources Limited has confirmed the presence of significant copper and gold mineralization within two prospects in the Delta Target Area, in north western West Papua, Indonesia.
Hillgrove told ASX this morning that the field work for the Bird's Head Project confirmed that the large copper signature from soil sampling is due to porphyry style mineralization. The work also confirmed peak assays oc 5.7 g/t gold and 3.7% copper and the presence of a structural corridor which strikes at least 4Km and hosts medium to high grade gold/copper mineralization. Peak assays include 33.5 g/t gold and 8.6% copper.
Hillgrove has 80% economic interest in the project, which is located 130 Km from Sorong, Papua. The license covers 181,500 hectares within the administrative districts of Tamrau and Manokwari.
