- Rockfire Resources said that soil and rock sampling at the Double Event prospect, which forms part of the Lighthouse tenement in Australia's Queensland state, had returned further strong gold anomalism.

In aggregate, 424 soil samples and 12 rock samples were collected during this field program.

The strike of surface gold-in-soils was extended by one kilometre, with 'extremely high' gold-in-soil results up to 3.86 grams per tonne of gold.

Results from rock samples came in at up to 58.5 grams per tonne of gold.

'To me, the important conclusion from this sampling is not so much the high-grade nature of the results, but the discrete, well-defined distribution of the anomalism,' chief executive David Price said.

'This demonstrates that the soil sampling is working well to define drill targets.'
