Goldstone Announces Positive Drilling Results


Stratex is pleased to report that Goldstone Resources Limited (“Goldstone”; AIM: GRL), in which it holds a 33.45% interest, has announced an update for its drilling programme at the Homase/Akrokerri gold exploration project in Ghana. 



· Assays from three diamond drill holes have returned encouraging results, including:

- 21.3 metres @ 1.98 g/t from 143.4 metres, including 7.4 metres @ 3.37g/t from 155.2 metres (16HMDD-0001);

- 23.3 metres @ 1.39 g/t from 170 metres, including 6 metres @ 4.44g/t from 187.3 metres and 3 metres @ 8.21g/t from 190.3 metres (16HMDD-0002);

· Drilling results have confirmed the continuity of the identified mineralised zone to vertical depths of between 120-180 metres beneath the base of the historic open pit;

· A deeper intersection from drill hole 16HMDD-0003 suggests the potential for parallel orebodies within the major structural corridor;

· The latest results underpin the current exploration programme focusing on the upper zones of the Homase mineralised corridor.

Stratex’s Chief Executive Officer, Marcus Engelbrecht, said: “The positive results of the current drilling programme at Goldstone continue to support our view that the Homase/Akrokerri project has the potential to deliver a significant increase in defined resources in a recognised gold district in Ghana.”
