The Zaphod Prospect is located within the southern part of the tenement package and within 10km of multi-million ounce Gold deposits.
Preliminary exploration conducted in February 2016 identified a major mineralised structure with rockchips from over 100m of strike returning high grade gold values of up to 200g/t Au. These structures were drill tested over 200m of strike and confirmed a major gold mineralised system exists.
Following this, a review of regional magnetics identified a conceptual target located 300m northwest of the Zaphod Prospect associated with a significant cross-fault.
Echo is continuing exploration activities at Zaphod.
