Triton Minerals Ltd. (ASX:TON) announced that additional assay results from a reverse-circulation drill program have “verified newly identified high grade zones of the graphite mineralisation at Nicanda Hill.”

As quoted in the press release:

Selected significant interesections of weighted average graphite carbon (GrC), include:

  • 34m at 9.5% GrC in GBNC0005
  • 80m at 10.3% GrC in GBNC0006
  • 24m at 12.2 GrC in GBNC0006
  • 30m at 11.6% GrC in GBNC0006
  • 24m at 9.1% GrC in GBNC0007
  • 16m at 10.3% GrC in GBNC0009

Drilling is now focused on testing the continuity of the multitude of interpreted high grade zones.

Brad Boyle, Triton’s managing director, commented:

The identification of even more high grade zones to the west of the orginal HG1 zone, whilst maintaining an overall average of 11% graphite carbon, is a very encouraging result for the Company.

Further, the drilling has also expanded the horizontal width of the graphite mineralization zone to an exceptional 1,000m. These are very exciting results for Triton and they continue to show the world class potential of the Balama North project.
