- At Lobo Project, channel sampling of outcrop and trenches at 1m intervals, in areas previously "bulk" sampled by Mindoro (Mindoro releases 2004-2005), above and southwest of the Southwest Breccia ("SWB") resource has produced results that include 9.50m at 13.53 g/t gold (Au) including 1m at 41.80 g/t Au; 6m at 23.55g/t Au including 1m at 30.79 g/t Au and 150m southwest of SWB, 4.00m at 12.23 g/t Au including 1m at 25.14 g/t Au.
- At Archangel Project, a high-grade gold drilling intersection in KTD 199-12 of 2.2m @ 36.53 g/t Au including 1.2m @ 62.09 g/t Au from 203m was produced to the northwest and at depth below the Kay Tanda Resources area. Other significant recent results from within the previously drilled resources area include KTD 196-12: 20.55m @ 1.66 g/t Au from 21.15m including 2m @ 5.03 g/t Au from 22.15m from the Chinese Tunnels area and KTD 195-12: 9.3m @ 3.55 g/t Au, 19.21 g/t Ag from 41.1m including 3.95m @ 6.27 g/t Au from 45.55m from the southwestern side of the resource area (formerly Pulang Lupa).
Drilling has also now commenced testing the West Drift "lode" on the Lobo project, where previous drilling by Mindoro indicates a potential target zone of >400 metres strike length, with increasing gold-grade with depth.
Mindoro President and CEO Jon Dugdale said, "We are very pleased with the initial high-grade results from the Red Mountain program at Batangas. The Batangas gold assets are now owned and operated by Red Mountain, a gold focussed exploration and Development Company in which Mindoro has a majority stake.
