Perth, Australia, Nov 4, 2011 - (ABN Newswire) - Peel Mining Limited (ASX:PEX) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded EP 53088 and EP 53111 covering the Rise and Shine gold project.
EP 53111 was the subject of a competitive permit allocation process (NAA) by New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals initiated in late 2010 and encompasses the Rise and Shine Shear Zone and the Cromwell Lode within the historic Bendigo goldfield.
The Rise and Shine Shear Zone appears to be structurally similar to the Hyde Macraes Shear Zone, host to the multi-million ounce Macraes gold mine, and is located in a similar position in the Otago Schist.
Substantial amounts of exploration have previously been completed at Rise and Shine, however the majority of work has been directed at historic workings sited at the base of the Rise and Shine Creek Valley.
Peel's Managing Director, Mr Rob Tyson, said the Company was very pleased to add Rise and Shine to its exploration portfolio.
Peel was attracted to Rise and Shine because of its apparent similarities to Macraes and its large-scale potential if the Rise and Shine Shear Zone is flatter-lying than previously interpreted.
