The company said that the modelling indicated that Crown Ridge was above a potential 4km continuous intrusive with an extensive layer of weather rock, consistent with near-surface geology confirmed in bulk sampling pits.
 
Gold Mountain said that bulk sampling would be ramped up shortly with the aim of establishing a resource from the results.
 
"Gold Mountain's technical team believes that these soils will continue to host much more free gold and platinum, as has been proved by the bulk sampling to date," the company said.
