Southern Cross Gold reported results from its recent drilling activities at the Apollo prospect within the 100%-owned Sunday Creek Project, Victoria.

Drill holes SDDSC119 and SDDSC119W1 revealed high-grade gold and antimony mineralisation, extending the known resource area and reinforcing confidence in the continuity of the deposit.

Drill hole SDDSC119 identified extensions of mineralisation 200m eastward at Apollo East and infilled a 260m gap at Apollo Deeps.

Intercepts include 4.2m at 3.6 grams per tonne gold equivalent at Apollo East and 11.5m at 6 g/t AuEq at Apollo Deeps.

The company plans to increase site capacity with an additional rig, focusing on a 60 km drill program to build upon the existing deposit through volume increases and enhanced grade continuity.
