This pilot survey discovered a distinctive alteration mineral assemblage associated with higher gold values and therefore useful as an exploration pathfinder at Golden Trail.
The Company is now planning to conduct an airborne hyperspectral survey over the Golden Trail and other areas of interest. In addition, the Company plans to apply hyperspectral technology in the logging of all drill core as drilling of the property proceeds. An application for a drilling permit at Golden Trail is well advanced and an announcement will be made upon receipt.
The 44 samples used in the pilot survey were rock-chip line samples taken over five-foot continuous intervals at surface. The hyperspectral study established that the highest gold values are within hydrothermally altered and replaced marble/limestone that is little distinguished in outcrop from adjacent altered limestone with significant but lower values.
These original samples were taken to establish a better understanding of the controls on gold mineralization and found that the highest values are along the contacts between solution collapse breccia and hydrothermally altered marble and an overlying and shallowly dipping jasperoid horizon. The distinctive mineral assemblage discovered by the hyperspectral pilot study distinguishes the zones of high gold values from zones of lower gold values.
Results from the original surface sampling program included one continuous five-foot line sample that returned 13.7 grams gold with 36.2 grams silver and a second five-foot line sample returned 3.49 grams gold with 105 grams silver. The largest identified vein at surface is over 1,200 meters long, and has an associated alteration zone that averages about 30 meters wide.
