Platina Resources (ASX: PGM) Taps Into New Gold Resource Potential With Hermes Discovery
Sharing is caring

According to a recent ASX announcement, Platina Resources has successfully identified a new gold exploration target, Hermes, within the Xanadu gold project. It shows promising potential for significant gold deposits. 

Sipa Resources NL first discovered the gold potential at Hermes in 1997. The mineralisation style of the Hermes deposit exhibits remarkable similarities to that of the Mt. Olympus gold project. Mt. Olympus is located around 10 kilometres to the northwest and shares the same underlying fault structure. Notably, the Hermes deposit spans an impressive 570 meters in strike length and measures 350 meters in width, indicating a substantial deposit of mineral resources. Sipa Resources collected 11 gold rock chip samples, with six samples containing less than 0.1 g/t and three containing more than 0.5 g/t (up to 1.96 g/t).

Platina’s most recent field trip revealed widespread outcropping gold mineralisation. Assays revealed elevated arsenic and copper values consistent with the Mt. Olympus style of mineralisation. Three of the nine rock chip samples that were taken had gold concentrations greater than 0.26 g/t and a maximum of 0.82 g/t.

The recent discovery of Hermes has greatly increased the company’s chances of success. This discovery offers the potential for a new supply of mineral resources, which can strengthen the company’s position in the mining industry. The Hermes deposit’s mineral resources might be developed and extracted to provide new revenue streams and diversify the company’s holdings.
