Oro Verde has reported encouraging surface trench sampling results from two groups of trenches at the Topacio gold project in south-eastern Nicaragua.

Assays included 5.25m at 11.75 grams per tonne gold; 45m at 11.6gpt gold; 2.0m at 14.15gpt gold; 20.5m at 4.83gpt gold; and 3.6m at 7.18gpt gold.

Oro Verde chief executive officer Doug Bright said the excellent gold grades and good widths kept the company optimistic that the latest drilling program testing beneath the quartz vein outcrops would yield encouraging intercepts.

Mithril Resources has uncovered multiple bedrock conductors in an electromagnetic geophysical survey at its Kurnalpi nickel-cobalt prospect near Kalgoorlie.
