Integra Mining reports that infill drilling at the Majestic prospect in Western Australia, 22 km north of the company’s Randalls gold processing facility, has returned high-grade gold intercepts within very broad zones of gold mineralization. Intercepts have included 4.30 m at 15.16 g/mt gold within a broader zone of 70.55 m grading 1.75 g/mt gold and 7.5 m at 11.62 g/mt gold within a broader zone of 34 m at 4.46 g/mt gold.
The results at Majestic confirm the continuity of west-dipping, high-grade gold mineralization and derive from an on-going drilling campaign in support of mineral resources to ore reserves conversion expected to be completed by mid-year 2011. Integra currently anticipates that the Majestic project will make a material contribution to the extension of mine-life at Randalls, where it has initiated a 25% expansion in throughput capacity to 1 million mt/y.
The Majestic prospect is part of the Monger joint venture between Integra (85%) and Newcrest Operations Ltd. (15%).
