The Gold Links Mine is the most advanced development in the Gold Links Project and hosts several narrow, high-grade gold veins. Two veins (Sacramento and 2150) have been prospected and operated intermittently between 1885 and 1948. Approximately 50,000 ounces of gold was produced from the 2150 vein.
Numerous drill holes from the area have intersected gold mineralization grades of over 60 grams per ton and the channel sampling has returned similar grades. Recent high-grade assay results from the Gold Links site confirms the project as a mineable resource.
Assay results from 67 drill holes and 74 channel samples have been taken across the area, including:
- 37 were drilled to define the 9900-mineralised zone.
- 23 drill holes returned grades of more than 20g/t (0.6oz).
- 6 drill holes returned grades greater than 60g/t (~2oz).
- 1 drill intersection returned a grade of 223g/t (7oz+).
Drilling below the old workings has confirmed that gold mineralisation continues and is open at depth. Additional systematic drilling is planned.
The Sacramento Mine was discovered in the 1896 and mined by drifting directly on the vein over three levels. Historical production from the Sacramento was in excess of 17,500 ounces of gold.
The down dip extension of the Sacramento vein was successfully drilled by Dateline in 2019. The vein continues to be mineralised at depth and additional follow up drilling is planned.
The Raymond Mine is situated between the Carter Mine and the Gold Links Mine. Historical production was estimated at approximately 25,000 ounces of gold from above the adit. Horizontal development at Raymond totals 3.2 km over several levels however no mining or exploration has ever been done below the adit level.
The Carter Mine was the largest producer in the gold brick district. Like the Gold Links and the Raymond adits, multiple veins were intersected during its development. Recorded production is over 65,000 ounces of gold. No mining or exploration has been completed below the adit level.
