Australia : Alt awarded $200,000 grant to drill Windy Hill gold prospect at Paupong Project in NSW.

Alt Resources Ltd is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the maximum drill funding of $200,000 for Round 2 of the NSW Governments New Frontiers Co-operative Drilling Program. The grant has been awarded for upcoming drilling at the Windy Hill Intrusion Related Gold (IRG) Prospect at the Companys flagship 70%-owned Paupong gold and base metals Project in southern NSW.

Alt will apply the funds to a 2,500m diamond drilling program at Windy Hill, where the Company has previously identified multiple Intrusion-Related Gold targets from an airborne magnetic survey, extensive soil sampling and Induced Polarisation chargeability data (see Alt Resources announcement: Major New Intrusion-Related Gold Targets Identified at Paupong Project, NSW, May 2016 via the link; Drilling will commence in November 2016.

Alt CEO James Anderson said: This grant will help Alt unlock the potential of the Paupong Project for a significant new gold discovery. This project epitomises the spirit of the NSW Governments New Frontiers program. It is highly prospective for a major intrusion-related gold system but has received little or no exploration attention. The Company would like to thank the NSW Government for continuing to support the New Frontiers Co-operative Drill Funding program and selecting the Paupong Project as a beneficiary.

The Paupong Project was also a recipient of the full A$200,000 funding amount in Round 1 of the New Frontiers program and is the only project to secure the maximum funding amount on two occasions. The grant was awarded to Alts Joint Venture partner, GFM Exploration, in 2014. This funding assisted in the discovery of vein-hosted Au-Cu-Ag mineralisation over a 1.5 km strike length at the Kidman Prospect, 3.5 km south west of Windy Hill. Since the success of initial drilling at Kidman, the Company has undertaken extensive regional exploration and believes that IRGS targets at Windy Hill represent the source of mineralising fluids throughout the Paupong Valley.

Windy Hill lies within Alt Resources Paupong Project in the southern Lachlan Fold Belt, NSW. Prior to GFM Explorations initial activities in the area from 2012, little or no mineral exploration had occurred beyond first pass stream sediment sampling in the 1970s. This historical sampling did not include gold analyses. Alt flew a 5,000line km aerial magnetic survey over the Paupong Project in January 2016, identifying possible buried intrusions, particularly beneath Windy Hill.

These targets have not been drilled. As part of the New Frontiers funding application, Alt has planned 8 diamond drill holes for approximately 2,500m, to test the geochemical, IP and deeper magnetic targets at Windy Hill. Drilling approvals are already in place, with work scheduled to commence in November 2016.
