Coffee with Samso Episode 154 is starring Brad Valiukas, Managing Director of Aurumin Ltd (ASX:AUN)
Aurumin Ltd (ASX:AUN) is listed on the ASX and has been developing the Sandstone project since our last coffee in January 2022.
When we last spoke to Brad Valiukas, they had just acquired the project. The strategy was to drill more to build a better database of the project. During this time, Aurumin has made good progress with four drill programs with extensive intersections of gold mineralization.
- 11/07/2022 – 344.00 m at 1.29 g/t Au
- 11/08/2022 – 224.00 m at 1.50 g/t Au
- 05/09/2022 – 352.80 m at 1.50 g/t Au
- 12/09/2022 – 242.70 m at 1.20 g/t Au
Looking at these drill holes, I see some hidden issues regarding the grades that will be included in the upcoming resource model. The overall length appears to be only slightly higher grade than the resource, but there are much better numbers within the section. With an average of 1.5 g/t Au you will definitely see much larger numbers down the length of the hole.
It is also important to realize that the potentially higher grades in the drill holes also allow for the flexibility to change the mining style. I see Sandstone’s potential as a matter of when, not if, it will be positive. The geology will create opportunities and recent drilling is a clear indication that my assumptions are not too far off target.
Another important point to consider is the potential lack of motivation of neighboring deposits to go into mining. If this were the case, Aurumin could consolidate its inventory and that would work perfectly for the model.
