Catalyst Metals discovered high-grade gold near the Trident deposit, with intercepts including 35m at 7.6g/t Au and 43m at 2.9g/t Au.

The findings suggest the potential for a small open pit, reducing initial capital expenditures and development risks.

Exploration comprised 44 holes drilled above the Trident deposit, revealing near-surface mineralisation.

The discovery offers Catalyst a pathway to lower costs and risks associated with developing the Trident underground mine, potentially starting with an open pit.
