Shares of Oracle Power (LON: ORCP) are climbing on Monday after the company said its recent gravity survey conducted across the Jundee East Gold Project, located in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia, has confirmed the presence of a newly identified substantial greenstone belt located directly adjacent and east of the Jundee Gold Mine.
The natural resources firm said a newly identified substantial greenstone belt has been delineated within the Jundee East due to the latest gravity survey and processing undertaken.
The greenstone belt is located 9km due east of the Jundee Gold Mine, which has produced over 7Moz Au.

Follow-up activities are now being planned, including planning and permitting aircore drilling across the primary target areas.
