ALKANE Resources has found more gold at the site of its Tomingley Gold Project (TGP) as it waits for a mining lease.
The TGP received development approval from the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure in late July.
But construction cannot begin until the company receives the lease from the Division of Resources and Energy.
Alkane Resources has continued to search for gold on the project site, 50 kilometres south-west of Dubbo.
An announcement by the Australian Securities Exchange indicates that recent drilling provided detail of a strike 100 metres wide and 300 long at the Caloma Two deposit.
The TGP concentrates on three deposits called Wyoming One, Wyoming Three and Caloma.
Caloma Two is adjacent to the planned Caloma open pit mine.
Alkane Resources has scheduled further drilling before making a final resource estimation for incorporation into the development schedule.
A feasibility study on the TGP indicates that it will produce 50,000 to 60,000 ounces of gold annually.
As it waits for the mining lease, the multi-commodity miner and explorer is preparing an environmental impact statement seeking development approval for the Dubbo Zirconia Project at Toongi.
