Talisman Mining drilling hits further high-grade copper-gold at Durnings

Talisman Mining Ltd (ASX: TLM) has revealed further significant copper and gold assays from Stage 2 follow-up drilling at the Durnings Prospect.

Durnings is part of Talisman’s 100%-owned Lachlan Project in central New South Wales.

Second high-grade mineralised zone

Diamond drilling in the northern Durnings area has identified a second significant zone of high-grade gold and copper mineralisation.

New highlight intersections include 4 metres at 12.6 g/t gold, 11.4g/t silver, 0.5% copper, 0.4% lead, 0.6% zinc from 90 metres, including 1 metre at 44.4g/t gold, 29.0g/t silver, 1.1% copper, 0.5% lead, 0.6% zinc.

Confirmation of a second high-grade mineralised zone further reinforces a major greenfields base and precious metals discovery at Durnings.

“Continuing to deliver excellent results”

Talisman Managing Director Andrew Munckton said: “Our Stage 2 drilling program at Durnings is continuing to deliver excellent results, with the discovery of a second high-grade zone of mineralisation in the northern part of the prospect area providing further evidence that we have a new greenfields discovery on our hands.

 “Importantly, the new copper-gold and base metal results in DRDD0023 are located 400 metres away from the original discovery hole DRRCD0006 and the spectacular intercepts in DRRCD0019.

 “This shows that we have several mineralised positions at Durnings with the potential for exceptional grades over a considerable area in multiple locations.

Next steps

Stage 3 exploration at the Southern Durnings area is planned to start in mid-June and will consist of step-out drilling.

Further drilling at Durnings North will aim to extend up-dip and along strike the recent high-grade intersections.

Planning and approval applications for Stage 3 drilling are underway.

“The Cobar Basin has been delivering significant exploration news at a number of locations lately and Talisman is pleased to be at the forefront of a new wave of discoveries for the region with our emerging discoveries at Durnings and Rip N Tear,” added Munckton.

 “The next few months should be an exciting time for our shareholders.”
