DRILLS 12.66 METRES OF 39.31 G/T GOLD AND 133.11 G/T SILVER AT SHOVELNOSE

 

Diamond Drill Core in Box

Westhaven Ventures Inc. (WHN.V)  has released drill results from its continuing drill campaign at its 15,542-hectare Shovelnose gold property, located within the prospective Spences Bridge gold belt (SBGB), which borders the Coquihalla Highway, 30 kilometres south of Merritt, B.C.

Highlights:

  • SN19-01:
    • (154.34 to 167.00m) 12.66 metres (m) of 39.31 g/t gold (Au) and 133.11 g/t silver (Ag).
    • (89.00 to 92.00m) 3.00m of 4.65 g/t Au and 10.86 g/t Ag.
    • (95.20 to 154.34m) 59.14m of 0.43 g/t Au and 2.79 g/t Ag.
    • (167.00 to 177.00m) 10.00m of 2.26 g/t Au and 15.13 g/t Ag.
  • SN19-02 (assays pending):
    • Approximately 137.00m to 177.00m, intercept of rhyolite breccia with sections of banded quartz, ginguro, pyrite and visible gold in veins.
  • The program is ongoing and currently drilling SN19-03, which is a step out ~70m to the northeast of SN18-18, targeting the 2nd vein zone as previously reported.

Drilling to date is limited so true widths cannot be definitively determined. However, based on the geology of the vein zone with a steep dip to the west, true widths are estimated to be about 80-90% of reported interval lengths. Please see the plan map and cross section below. For a table of assays from SN19-01 please visit the company's website.

Gareth Thomas, President & CEO of Westhaven stated, "SN19-01 contains the highest gram-metres (497.66 g-m) intercept to date on Shovelnose. It was drilled at 50-metre strike spacing between hole SN18-14 (435.36 g-m) and hole SN 18-15 (413.49 g-m). South Zone drilling continues to define the extent and demonstrate the continuity of this gold mineralized vein system. Drill intercepts of this grade and thickness strengthen management's belief that we're dealing with a large, high-grade gold system. The drill program is ongoing and all additional assays will be released regularly as the program progresses."

Peter Fischl, Exploration Manager, goes on to add, "Hole SN19-01 successfully tested the continuity of higher grade gold mineralization hosted in quartz-adularia veins first drilled last year at Shovelnose in the South Zone. In addition, lower grade gold mineralization has been identified in the hanging wall (0.61 g/t Au and 3.07 g/t Ag over 65.34m) and footwall (2.26 g/t Au and 15.14 g/t Ag over 10.0m) to Zone 1 veining. This broader envelope of gold mineralization is hosted in the silica-pyrite healed rhyolite breccia unit, which pre-dates the quartz-adularia veins, and is now considered a secondary target of interest at Shovelnose."

QA/QC

Core samples were prepared using the PREP-31 package in ALS's Kamloops facility each core sample is crushed to better than 70 % passing a 2 mm (Tyler 9 mesh, US Std. No.10) screen. A split of 250 g is taken and pulverized to better than 85 % passing a 75 micron (Tyler 200 mesh, US Std. No. 200) screen. 0.5g of this pulverized split is digested in aqua regia and analyzed via ICP-MS and ICP-AES (method code ME-MS41L), which reports a 53-element suite of elements. All results greater than 100 ppb gold were reanalyzed by ALS using their Fire Assay with an AAS finish, method code Au-AA23 (30g sample size). Additional Au screening is performed using ALS's Au-SCR24 method, select samples are dry screened to 100 micron. A duplicate 50g fire assay is conducted on the undersized fraction as well as an assay on the entire oversize fraction. Total Au content, individual assays and weight fractions are reported. All analytical and assay procedures are conducted in ALS's North Vancouver facility. A QA/QC program included laboratory and field standards inserted every 25 samples.

Shovelnose Gold Property Overview

There is strong evidence for a significant mineralized vein system within the property where float samples grading up to 119 g/t Au and 273 g/t Ag, veins exposed by trenching grading 66 g/t Au, and wide low-grade alteration zones typical of epithermal gold deposits have been located. Recent drilling intersected 17.77 metres of 24.50 g/t Au, including 6.78 metres of 50.76 g/t Au.

The Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB)

Westhaven owns a 100%-interest in 4 properties covering over 35,000 hectares within the prospective SBGB, which is situated within a geological setting like those which host other significant epithermal gold-silver systems. It is close to major transportation routes and infrastructure allowing for cost-effective exploration. The SBGB is a 110-kilometre northwest-trending belt of intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks dominated by the Cretaceous Spences Bridge Group. Sable Resources and Westhaven have a combined control of 86% of the SBGB (225,000ha). Any ground staked by Sable within 5-kilometre of Westhaven's existing projects will be subject to a 2.5% NSR.

Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (GYA.V) announced it has received the report on geophysical interpretation of the airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys on its Marudi Gold Project located in the Guiana Gold Belt, Guyana, South America.



REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

Direct measurement on drill core from previous campaigns correlates strongest magnetic susceptibility from quartzite-metachert, the primary host rock for mineralization

3D magnetic inversion confirms direct spatial association of known Au mineralization at Mazoa Hill and Marudi North with strong magnetic responses

Brownfields targets identified adjacent to and at depth at Mazoa Hill which could add to current mineral resource
Less than 10% of the strike length of the Mazoa Hill magnetic horizon has been drilled, the remaining ~5km strike length is considered underexplored

Magnetic anomalies along Toucan Ridge correlate to anomalous Au from surface trenching and offer additional drill targets
Numerous greenfield targets based on magnetic responses exist, recommended for surface trenching or shallow drilling to upgrade

Mr. Peter Berdusco, President and CEO states, “The geophysics interpretation has greatly advanced our understanding of the controls on gold mineralization on the Marudi Gold Project and identifies priority targets to both expand the known mineral resource and discover new occurrences."

The geophysical survey confirms the direct correlation at large scale of mineralization at Mazoa Hill with a band of strong magnetic susceptibility.

EXPLORATION GOING FORWARD

Three types of geophysical targets have been identified for further investigation: along strike and deeper than the known mineralization (Mazoa Hill and Marudi North), to expand the known mineral resource; under the anomalous Au assay results from trenching in the Toucan Ridge exploration area; and numerous magnetic anomalies of similar character across the Property. The targets near the known mineralization from previous drilling and trenching are ready for the next stage of detailed modelling to optimize logistics and trajectories for drilling, whereas targets farther afield would require trenching or shallow drilling to rank prospective targets.

 ANNOUNCES LWIR CORRELATES WITH GOLD BEARING CORRELATES AT CHOCO

Airborne Survey images

 

 

Max Resource Corp. (MXR.V) has released the results of a "cloud-stitched" long-wave infrared (LWIR) survey over a 1,000-square-kilometre area within the company's 1,757-square-kilometre Choco gold-bearing conglomerate project, located 100 kilometres southwest of Medellin, Colombia.

Highlights

  • The LWIR results appear to suggest a strong correlation between the gold bearing conglomerate Trial Pits and Outcrop sample sites and LWIR anomalies.
  • The LWIR survey area encompasses the previously reported 36 sq. km gold bearing zone and covers or is adjacent to historic production (1906 - 1990) of 742,308 oz. gold and 769,049 oz. of platinum and the 2006 ANM drill hole which identified conglomerates units down to 500m.
  • The LWIR identified anomalous zones interpreted to be conglomerates continue further to the northeast and southwest.

Brett Matich, MAX's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The LWIR has yielded responses throughout the 1000 sq. km survey area similar to responses over the 36 sq. km area of our concentrated exploration efforts to date." He continued: "The LWIR survey has also further increased our level of confidence in a possible link between overlying Choco Pacific production and underlying gold-bearing conglomerates."

LWIR Survey

Max conducted the cloud stitching Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey to investigate a potential correlation between conglomerate outcropping and areas of historic production. Historically, satellite imagery has been hindered because of year-round cloud cover. This survey sourced multiple bands through the gaps in the clouds over a 20-year period, stitching the imagery together.

LWIR analysis, through proprietary processing of Aster satellite data, has the ability to map or identify, through reflectance spectroscopy against a set of known standards, mineral distribution over extremely large areas covered by vegetation and shallow cover. The ground-penetrating nature of infrared radiation in the long-wave bands allows viewing of mineral spectra in the first 30 to 60 centimetres of the earth's surface through dense vegetation.

The Choco Gold Bearing Conglomerate Project

MAX has 100% ownership of 82 and 50% of 7 mineral license applications, totaling over 1,757 sq. km located within Choco Department approximately 100km SW of the city of Medellin, Colombia.

Compania Minera del Choco Pacifico ("Choco Pacific") produced 1.5 million ounces of surface gold and 1.0 million ounces of surface platinum from the "Choco District" between 1906 to 1990, largely limited to an average depth of 8 meters or less.

MAX's Choco Gold Project covers or is adjacent to much of Choco Pacific's historic exploration and production areas, in addition, an ANM hole drilled for hydrocarbons in the northern end of the current 1000 sq. km exploration area, that appears to have intersected zones of conglomerates through the top 500 metres according to the summary of drill log for hole Choco-1-ST-P. None of the conglomerate was sampled for gold as the target was deeper hydrocarbons.

MAX cautions investors it has yet to verify the historic information.

GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY OVER 1,000 SQ. KM AREA

 

Geophysics Heli. 1jpg

 

Max Resources Corp. (MXR.V) announced it has completed a Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey over an area of 1,000 sq. km within the Company’s 1,757 sq. km gold bearing conglomerate “Choco Gold Bearing Conglomerate Project”, located 100km SW of Medellin, Colombia.

Exploration Update

The Company expects to receive the interpreted LWIR survey results next week.

The survey encompasses or is adjacent to Compania Minera Choco Pacifico historic production of 742,308 ounces of gold 769,049 ounces of platinum and includes the previously identified 36 sq. km area of gold bearing conglomerates.

The survey also encompasses Agencia Nacional de Minera (ANM) hydrocarbon drill hole Choco-1-ST-P which identified conglomerate units through the upper 500 metres of the drill hole.

Source: R.J. Fletcher and Associates (2011) Review of Gold and Platinum Exploration and Production in Choco Province Colombia Part 3. Private Report for Condoto Platinum Ltd.)

Brett Matich, Max’s President and CEO, commented: “While the exploration to date appears to suggest a possible link between overlying Choco Pacific production and underlying gold bearing conglomerates, the objective of the LWIR survey is to survey the remainder of the 1,000 sq. km historical production area for similar LWIR responses to the previously defined 36 sq. km area.”

Continuing research in the region of the initial conglomerate discoveries has outlined an area of approximately 1000 sq. km. This area is defined largely by the historical production from Compania Minera Choco Pacifico. Max has been locating and testing the hard rock conglomerates beneath the areas of the historic production working on an exploration model where the presence of gold in the overlying alluvial is a potential indicator of gold in the underlying conglomerates. The centre of the areas of historic production and the recorded production from these areas is shown on the accompanying map.

In addition, an ANM hole drilled for hydrocarbons in the northern end of the 1000 sq. km area appears to have intersected zones of conglomerates through the top 500 metres according to the summary of drill log for hole Choco-1-ST-P. None of the conglomerate was sampled for gold as the target was deeper hydrocarbons.

Max conducted the Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey over the 1000 sq. km to see if a correlation between the conglomerate outcropping and the areas of historic production exists. LWIR analysis, through proprietary processing of Aster satellite data, has the ability to map or identify, through reflectance spectroscopy against a set of known standards, mineral distribution over extremely large areas covered by vegetation and shallow cover. The ground-penetrating nature of infrared radiation in the long wave bands allows viewing of mineral spectra in the first 30 to 60 centimetres of the earth's surface through dense vegetation.

Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (GYA.V) has released final assays from trench TTR-18-14 at the Toucan Ridge area on its Marudi gold project located in the Guiana Shield, Guyana, South America.

Trench TTR-18-14 final assay results from quartzite-metachert (host rock) have returned values of 1.46 g/t Au over 6.00 Metres within 9.60 Metres of 1.00 g/t Au .

The interval is located above a magnetic anomaly as determined from 3D inversion interpretation.

Trench TTR-18-14 is located approximately 1000 metres northeast of trench TTR-18-06 (the westernmost trench on the ridge) and was trenched for 178.70 metres with 88 samples taken. Four intervals have been identified as quartzite-metachert host rock.

The Toucan Ridge area of interest continues for more than 1.75 kilometres to the northeast of trench TTR-18-06.

Current Gold Zones and Mineral Resource Estimates at Marudi

The Mazoa Hill Zone contains the Company's current mineral resource estimate. The Toucan Ridge area is located approximately one kilometre north of the Mazoa Hill zone. Data analyzed suggests that the mineralized zone is open at depth and to the southeast. Mazoa Hill zone mineral resource estimates:

- 259,100 indicated gold ounces within 4,428,000 tonnes grading 1.80 g/t;

- 86,200 inferred gold ounces within 1,653,000 tonnes grading 1.60 g/t

TO PURCHASE 100% OF THE MAX RESOURCE CORP. GACHALA COPPER PROJECT NORTH BLOCK

 

Gachala copper project

 

Tasca Resources Ltd. (TAC.V) has signed a non-binding letter of intent with Max Resource Corp. to purchase a 100-per-cent interest in seven mineral licence applications comprising the North block of Max's Gachala copper project 60 kilometres east of Bogota, Colombia: The North block consists of seven mineral licence applications covering 48 line kilometres of the Devonian and Permian/Cretaceous contact believed to be highly prospective for sedimentary copper deposits. Two of the license applications are contiguous to areas where historical exploration returned rock sample values ranging from 1.6 to 7.82 percent copper. Tasca cautions investors it has not yet verified any of the historical data.

Clive Massey, chief executive officer, commented: "I am extremely bullish on the future price of copper. When Max Resource Corp.'s gold discovery in Choco unexpectedly made the Gachala project available I felt Tasca had to pounce on the opportunity." He added: "We are planning to implement an aggressive exploration programme for this year and are very fortunate to have Brett Matich, Max's President and CEO prepared to assist our technical team, as both the team and Mr. Matich are convinced a concentrated exploration effort in the underexplored Gachala region has the potential to define the world's next copper frontier."

Mr. Matich commented, "I am looking forward to assisting Tasca's technical team in advancing the Gachala project, as we see the region as a highly prospective area for a massive copper discovery."

Two of the seven mineral license applications comprising the 13,280 hectare North Block cover the western limb of the Anticlinal Montecristo in the area adjacent to and immediately north of the Sinai property where Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Ltd. completed stream sediment and limited rock sampling in 1999. Rio Tinto took a total of 47 rock samples with 12 returning values in excess of 1 per cent copper, ranging from 1.6 per cent to 7.82 per cent (source: E.E. Vargas Ruiz, 1999; Exploracion Geoquimica Chivor Colombia Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Ltd.). Tasca cautions investors that mineralization on the Sinai property is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on its licence applications. Another two of the license applications cover a 4 kilometre long cobalt anomaly identified by the Colombian Geological Survey. This metal is of extreme interest to the Company as cobalt is one of the key accessory metals for sedimentary copper deposits.

The 7 North Block mineral license applications form part of the 53,538 hectare Gachala sedimentary copper project. The Gachala project lies within a northeast trending 250km-by-120km belt of Devonian-through-Cretaceous-age rocks in a geological setting conducive to hosting sedimentary copper deposits. Research by Rodriguez and Warden has found similarities between the sedimentary basin in Colombia and the sedimentary basin hosting the Zambian copper belt of Africa (source: C. Rodriguez and A.J. Warden (1993); "Overview of some Colombian gold deposits and their development potential; Mineralium Deposita, Vol. 28, pages 47 to 57).

In total, the 30 mineral license applications of the Gachala Project cover an aggregate 107 line kms of the highly prospective contact between the Devonian-Permian red beds and overlying Cretaceous reducing black shales, one of the settings typical of these copper deposits.

ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL DRILL RESULTS FROM THE LAPON CANYON GOLD PROJECT

 

Gold drill core

Walker River Resources Corp. (WRR.V) has released drill results from the late 2018 reverse circulation drill program on the Lapon Canyon gold project, located approximately 60 kilometres southeast of Yerington, Nev.

RC drill hole LC18-28 returned 10.23 g/t Au (uncut) over 19.9 metres including 78.1 g/t over 1.5 metres at a depth of 50.3 metres and 221 g/t over 1.5 metres at a depth of 57.9 metres. RC drill hole LC18-30 returned 93.5 g/t Au over 1.5 metres at a depth of 42.7 metres.

Key Highlights:

  • To date, mineralization has been discovered in a broad, altered, fractured and brecciated NE trending structural zone termed the Lapon Rose Zone. Anomalous gold values are denoted in many areas within this zone, and significant higher-grade mineralization over significant widths is located within sub vertical en echelon zones of intense alteration and gold enrichment.
  • Walker's initial geological mapping and prospecting on the Project followed by its drill programs has demonstrated the potential for the emplacement of significant gold mineralization.
  • The 2018 drilling focused on infill and expansion drilling at the Lapon Rose zone, as well as exploration and drilling new targets including other fault alteration zones, which in some instances show evidence of previous workings.
  • Significantly in Hole LC18-30, drilling intersected 93.5 g/t Au immediately prior to encountering old mine workings. These workings were intersected over 9.1 metres at a depth of 44.2 metres. This continues to verify historical data of the positioning of previously reported workings, in presently inaccessible mined out areas.
  • Consistently, since the start up of drilling on the project, all holes drilled within the Lapon Rose zone returned gold values with the majority (80%) returning significant grades and widths in en echelon zones of gold enrichment.

*Grade cut to 34 g/t

**True widths approx. 80%

The Lapon Rose Zone has now been drilled over a strike length of some 365 metres. The width of the zone exceeds 150 metres, and the zone has been drilled over a vertical extent of 400 metres. The zone remains open along strike and depth.

The 2018 drill program was designed to expand gold mineralized zones discovered by the Company, to discover and delineate new gold mineralized zones. Further results from the 2018 drill program are expected to be released shortly.

Michel David, President states: "We are very excited and encouraged by the continuation of the results from the Lapon Canyon Project. Most of the holes drilled in the Lapon Rose zone have returned significant gold grades and widths. We have also extended the strike length and width of the gold mineralization in Lapon Rose and have also shown that the gold mineralization is present over 400 vertical metres. The zone is also open at depth and strike." Mr. David continues: "We are very encouraged by higher grade gold values in the zones but are also very encouraged by the presence of lower grade mineralization and anomalous gold present pervasively throughout the alteration fault zone and enveloping the higher grades."

About the Lapon Project

The Lapon Project consists of 96 claims (1,940 acres) situated in the Wassuk Range, easily accessible by secondary state roads from the main highway (25 kilometres). A state grid power transmission line passes within three kilometres of the Lapon Project. The Lapon Project is located within the Walker Lane shear zone, a 100-kilometre-wide structural corridor extending in a southeast direction from Reno, Nevada. Within this trend, numerous gold, silver, and copper mines are located, notably the historic Comstock Lode mines in Virginia City. Also, the past producing Esmeralda/Aurora gold mine, with reported production of some one million ounces and the Anaconda open pit copper mine in Yerington, Nevada.

The Lapon Project is cut by a series of steeply dipping cross fault structures cutting across the Walker trend, analogous to other cross fault structures responsible for many gold and base metal deposits in the world. These faults are heavily sheared and altered (sericite, iron oxides) with abundant silica, varying in width from 60 to 300 metres. Four of these structures have been discovered at Lapon, and at least two can be traced for over four kilometres.

Small-scale high-grade mining began on the project in 1914. Approximately 600 metres of drifts and raises were developed from two adits and a two-stamp mill was built. Further underground work was carried out, returning numerous assay values in the range of one ounce per ton, with a sample at the end of an adit returning 20.6 ounces per ton. (National Instrument 43-101, Montgomery and Barr, 2004). Additional work on the Project in the following years, included the installation of a ball mill and milling facilities.

Max Resources (MXR.V) announced it is receiving the initial sampling analysis results sometime next week for the Company’s 1,757 sq. km gold bearing conglomerate “Choco Gold Bearing Conglomerate Project”, located 100km SW of Medellin, Colombia. The MAX technical team have determined the best way to obtain the grade of the gold bearing conglomerates is to actually crush the conglomerate and then process the material to physically recover the free gold from the sample, rather than just assay the samples.
Brett Matich, Max’s President and CEO, commented: “We are all eagerly awaiting next week’s initial sampling results. Our sampling methodology allows the Company to calculate gold recovery, which is far more beneficial than simply determining the gold contained within the samples by conventional assay” Mr. Matich continued: “Our exploration program is in full force with the objective of expanding the current 36 sq. km exploration area.

FREE GOLD IDENTIFIED IN FIRST FIVE CONGLOMERATE BULK TESTS

 

MAX Gold photos

 

MAX Gold photos 1

 

Max Resource Corp. (MXR.V) has released test sample results from five conglomerate trial pits, located within the company's Choco precious metal project, 100 kilometres southwest of Medellin, Colombia.

Highlights

  • Free gold was observed in the test sample concentrates from each of the five hard rock conglomerate trial pits;
  • The objective was to process approximately 40kg of the 2,500kg of conglomerate collected from each of the 2m by 2m by 30 cm deep pits to gravity test for signs of free gold;
  • The initial test results suggest potential gold continuity throughout a surface area of approximately 8 square kilometers; open in all directions;
  • Identification of a conglomerate outcrop 1.5km south of Pit 5 indicates a vertical thickness of 12m; test samples are currently being processed;
  • The Company is developing a processing system to analyze the gold content of the 2,500kg of bulk sample collected from each of the five pits;
  • additional samples are currently being processed; and
  • The on-going conglomerate test pit program continues to branch out further and further with the objective of increasing the lateral extent of the gold mineralization.

The exploration strategy is to determine the full lateral extent and gold content of the underlying hard rock conglomerate hosted gold deposits throughout the Company's 89 mineral license applications totaling 1,757 square kilometres in Western Colombia.

Brett Matich, Max's President and CEO commented: "Our initial exploration results support the historic reports of free gold contained within the underlying hard rock conglomerates which are potentially the source of the 1.5Mozs of gold and 1.0Mozs of platinum produced during historic surface mining." (Source: R.J. Fletcher and Associates (2011) Review of Gold and Platinum Exploration and Production in Choco Province Colombia Part 3.

Exploration Program

The Company considers systematic bulk sampling at surface to be the most practical means of determining grade, processing characteristics and the lateral extent of the mineralization. Sampling the exposed face of outcrops will provide initial assessment of thickness, depth and gold content of this flat lying mineralized system.

The six 2m by 2m by 30cm deep test pits are excavated from surface by pneumatic hammer. A measured specific gravity of 2.2 indicates approximately 2,500kg to 3,000kg of hard rock conglomerate is collected from each pit.

The on-going exploration recently identified a 12m thick conglomerate outcrop approximately 1.5km south of the most southern test pit. Samples were taken down the face of the outcrop to determine gold distribution vertically through the conglomerate. Analytical results are pending.

Choco Precious Metals Project

MAX has 100% ownership of 82 and 50% of 7 mineral license applications, totaling over 1,757 square kilometres, located within Choco Department approximately 100km SW of the city of Medellin, Colombia.

Compania Minera del Choco Pacifico ("Choco Pacific") produced 1.5 million ounces of surface gold and 1.0 million ounces of surface platinum from the "Choco District" between 1906 to 1990, largely limited to an average depth of 8 meters or less.

Mineralization consists of both dissemination pyrite and chalcopyrite and stockwork vein to veinlet pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite.
 
 
The purpose of the 2018 program was to extend to depth and expand the known mineralization: 18-PC-126 extended PC-22 from 184.1 metres to 404.47 metres ending in mineralization; 18-PC-127 extended PC-24 from 214.6 metres to 270.36 metres ending in mineralization; 18-PC-127 extended PC-19 from 188.1 metres to 273.9 metres. These three widely spaced holes also provided material for future metallurgical sampling. 
 
These results further indicate the potential to significantly expand the area of known mineralization at Poplar Property. Based on the assays above an aggressive and extensive drill programme will be designed to continue to expand the size of the known deposit. Tasca plans to both continue to drill laterally and to depth to increase the main deposit and to systematically test the satellite zones. A permit for further drilling is in place.

INTERSECTS 129 G/T GOLD AND 1,154 G/T SILVER OVER 7.28 METERS 

 

Gold drill core

 

GGX Gold Corp. (GGX.V) has received drill core analytical results for drill holes COD18-65 to COD18-67 completed during the November, 2018, diamond drilling program at its Gold Drop property near Greenwood in Southern British Columbia. COD18-67 intersected near-surface high-grade gold and silver with significant tellurium in the COD quartz vein. COD18-67 tested the southwest region of the COD vein in an area of prior high-grade gold drill intercepts. The mineralized COD vein system has been traced by drilling and/or trenching for an approximately 400-metre strike length and is open to the northeast, at depth and possibly to the southwest. Highlights for COD18-67 include:

  • 129 grams per tonne gold and 1,154 g/t silver over 7.28-metre core length (majority of samples greater than the upper 50-gram-per-tonne analytical limit for tellurium);
  • High-grade quartz vein intersection is near surface (18- to 23-metre vertical depth);
  • Part of exploratory shallow drilling designed to define high-grade mineralization and expand the understanding of controls on mineralization;
  • Telluride mineralization is common in vein intersection; visible gold in one section.

The November, 2018, diamond drilling program (11 drill holes: COD18-61 to COD18-71) tested the southwest region of the COD vein in an area of high-grade gold and silver mineralization. The COD vein is located in the Gold Drop Southwest zone. Prior 2018 drill holes in this part of the COD vein intersected near-surface high-grade gold and silver mineralization (news releases of Aug. 15 and Aug. 22, 2018). These include (core length):

  • COD18-45: 50.1 g/t gold and 375 g/t silver over 2.05 metres (including 167.5 g/t gold, 1,370 g/t silver and greater than 500 g/t tellurium over 0.46 metre);
  • COD18-46: 54.9 g/t gold and 379 g/t silver over 1.47 metres (including 223 g/t gold, 1,535 g/t silver and greater than 500 g/t tellurium over 0.30 metre);
  • Approximate 20-metre (COD18-45) to 23-metre (COD18-46) vertical depth of high-grade gold and silver mineralization.

Drill holes COD18-45 and COD18-46 were drilled at 45- and 50-degree dips to the west from the same site to intersect the northeast-southwest-striking COD vein.

Intersections exceeding one g/t gold for drill holes COD18-65 to COD18-67 are listed in the attached table. Since true widths cannot be accurately determined from the information available, the core lengths (metres) are reported.

Samples of felsic intrusive wall rock adjacent to the high-grade vein in COD18-67 returned low-grade gold values of 0.77 g/t (22.00 to 23.19 metres) and 0.57 g/t (30.47 to 32.72 metres).

All of the November, 2018, drill holes were collared within 25 metres of holes COD18-45 and COD-46, the objective to define the high-grade mineralization in this part of the COD vein and to provide information on the controls on mineralization. Holes COD18-61 to COD18-66 were drilled to the west and slightly northwest at dips of 45 to 60 degrees to intersect the approximately northeast-striking vein(s). Holes COD18-67 to COD18-71 were drilled at dips of 45 to 60 degrees slightly northeast to intersect the vein(s) at a shallower angle, the objective being to test the continuity of the quartz veining and mineralization.

Analytical results for drill holes COD18-61 to COD18-64 were reported in a news release in January, 2018, the highlight being an intersection of 28.0 g/t gold, 424.7 g/t silver and 150.4 g/t tellurium over a 1.17-metre core length in COD18-63.

The drill core was split with half core samples securely packaged and delivered to ALS Canada Ltd. in Vancouver, B.C. The core samples were analyzed for gold by fire assay-atomic absorption and for 48 elements (including silver and tellurium) by four-acid-ICP-MS. Samples exceeding 100 g/t gold were reanalyzed for gold by fire assay -- gravimetric finish. Samples exceeding 100 g/t silver were reanalyzed for silver by four-acid-ICP-AES. Samples exceeding 1,500 g/t silver by four-acid-ICP-AES were reanalyzed for silver by fire assay-gravimetric finish. Quality control (QC) samples were inserted at regular intervals.

Gold- and silver-bearing quartz veins occur in multiple regions on the property with high-grade gold reported (samples exceeding one ounce per ton gold reported).

Historical gold and silver production occurred at the Gold Drop, North Star, Amandy and Roderick Dhu vein systems.

David Martin, PGeo, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the technical information contained in this news release.

"With each additional drill program, we are significantly improving the gold grade mineralization of the COD vein. We continue to expand the known strike length of the mineralized vein system, which remains open in several directions. With another new near-surface high-grade gold zone and increasing strike length, we are very satisfied with the results generated and optimistic on the gold potential of the Gold Drop project," commented Barry Brown, president.

COMPLETES PRINCETON GOLD PROPERTY AIRBORNE GEOPHYSICS AND REPORTS 66.2 g/t GOLD

 

Airborne Survey images

 

Tasca Resources Ltd. (TAC.V) has completed an airborne survey of its entire 14,650-hectare Princeton gold property. The survey was funded by joint venture partner Canarc Resource Corp. 

Tasca acquired the Princeton Gold Property in September 2016 to further explore 2010 and 2011 discoveries, where float grab and in-place quartz rock sampling documented 25 of 37 samples returning gold values in excess of 1,000 parts per billion with 13 of the 25 samples returning gold values in excess of 10,000 ppb gold, or 10 grams per tonne, to a maximum of 66,237 ppb or 66.2 grams per tonne gold.

Tasca subsequently completed a fall 2018 excavator trenching program tracing the 2010 and 2011 in place quartz veining and boulder over 120 metres along strike. Highlights from the program include:

  • The most significant result from this program is a quartz vein assaying 217 grams per tonne gold over 0.9 metre.A second sample three metres along the vein ran 99.7 g/t gold also over 0.9 metre.
  • Two angular quartz float samples assayed 115.5 g/t gold and 108.5 g/t Au.
  • The 2018 trenching program combined with the 2011 surface program has resulted in the collection of 53 in-place or angular quartz vein samples.Thirty-eight of the samples exceeded one g/t gold, with 24 of the 38 exceeding 10 g/t gold to a maximum of 217 g/t gold.
  • The zone was traced over 120 metres; overburden exceeded the six-metre reach of the excavator.

The Princeton Gold Property is underlain by both Eocene Princeton Group volcanics and Triassic Jurassic Nicola Group volcanics.While there is little historical evidence of mineral discoveries in the Princeton Group volcanics, recent mapping by the British Columbia Geological Survey and by Tasca geologists suggests the quartz vein mineralization is hosted or intimately related to the Princeton volcanics.
