Drilling by Robust Resources at the highly prospective Batu Hitam prospect within the Lakuwahi calder on Romang Island has returned the highest yet intersections of the exploration program.Best intersection was 9.2 metres of gold and silver @ 5.09 grams/tonne gold equivalent, including 1.5 metres @ 20.7 grams/tonne gold equivalent.Results from a further five diamond holes at Batu Hitam show that all holes intersected hydrothermally altered and mineralized volcanic rocks and four holes intersected values of potential economic significance.This mineralization extends the precious metal zone established in and around a hole drilled by Billiton in the late 1990s as well as two previous holes drilled by Robust.Further evidence of the continuity of the broad precious metal mineralization at Batu Hitam comes from one of the holes which was drilled as a pilot hole for the bulk sample shaft being excavated at this prospect. An intersection of 46 metres @ 1.4 grams/tonne gold equivalent was obtained.Robust also recognizes the potential for base metal mineralization in a geological horizon sitting just below the precious metal horizon at Batu Hitam. Results from the latest drilling have yielded graded such as 1 metres @ 1.3% copper, 2.6% lead and 1.51% zinc from 35.7 metres.www.robustresources.com.au
