Riversgold advanced its Tambourah Project, located 160 km southeast of Port Hedland, Western Australia, with the identification of a high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide copper corridor.

The discovery spans a 12km strike length and includes historical drilling and rock chip results.

Historical exploration includes a key drill intersection from Hawkstone Minerals in 1970-71, revealing 30.5m at 1.1% copper, including a 4.6m section at 5.1% copper.

"We plan to have people back on the ground from the end of next week to continue with exploration," said David Lenigas, Chairman of Riversgold.

Further fieldwork will validate the historical rock chip results and determine additional exploration methods to advance the copper prospects.
