- Rockfire Resources said a reprocessing of historical geophysical data at its Plateau gold deposit in Australia's Queensland state had highlighted a number of prospects.

The prospects would be tested in a current drilling programme.

The current Plateau gold resource was 1,147,000 tonnes at 1.1 grams per tonne of gold, for 40,000 ounces of gold.

The data review found that multiple, high-chargeability zones occurred over a distance of more than 500 metres.

A single drill hole was planned as part of the current program to drill into the centre of one of the chargeable responses to test for gold mineralisation down to 200 metres.

'As we focus on Plateau, we're observing more evidence for a potentially large-scale gold deposit,' chief executive David Price said.
