Kitco News

Odyssey Gold (ASX:ODY) said today that it encountered significant visible gold while drilling the eastern extension of Bottle Dump, which is part of the Meekatharra-Cue belt in Western Australia.

Over the past five trading days, the stock has jumped 100% to 14 cents a share.

The company said that it was the first ever drilling in a previously untested area. The core has been sent to Perth for assaying.

“The impressive visible gold intersected at Bottle Dump confirms the strong potential of the Bottle Dump trend to host high-grade gold mineralisation. The visible gold in TCKDD0003 and the 13m at 3.9g/t in TKRC0014 have extended known gold mineralisation over 100m to the east of the Bottle Dump pit," said Executive Director, Matt Syme, in a news release.

“The potential extent of the Bottle Dump trend is up to 3km and the known gold mineralisation is open to the east and west and at depth. Odyssey has consolidated some of the best gold exploration ground in the Western Australian Goldfields and we are looking forward to applying modern exploration techniques to uncover the area’s outstanding potential."
