Initial assay results from the Delhi Pacific showing indicate up to 0.89% copper, 0.5 grams per ton gold and 2.42 grams per ton silver.
Delhi Pacific Showing
An inferred extension related to the Delhi Pacific trend mineralized structure was intersected in a drill hole on the Chibtown area, 2 kilometres south-southeast of the Delhi Pacific showing. The results from that intersection were reported on
Drilling of the Delhi Pacific showing was undertaken to both confirm the extent and grades of the historically reported mineralization and to extend the mineralization at depth and along strike. The Delhi Pacific mineralized trend forms a 3 kilometre long geophysical anomaly and remains open at depth and along strike. The polymetallic signature (copper, silver, and gold) of the Delhi Pacific mineralization is further evidence of the interpreted IOCG model across the Sagar property.
New Lode Gold Showing at Sagar
The summer exploration program traced magnetic anomalies of various sizes throughout the property. Approximately 1.7km northwest and along strike of the Delhi Pacific showing a series of oxidized quartz veins were observed. These quartz veins consisted of iron carbonates, calcite, milky quartz, pyrite and chalcopyrite.
The veins vary from 0.3 metres to greater than 2 metres in thickness and are on surface. The vein system exists in a shear zone that was traced on surface for over 130 metres and is visible in air photos for over 700 metres. The quartz veins have a magnetic signature that was mapped continuously over 330 metres using a ground magnetometer.
A number of samples were taken both along strike and from different veins. X-ray fluorescence ('XRF') and X-ray diffraction ('XRD') measurements were taken on all samples and indicate intense chloritic and iron carbonate alteration.
This sample has the highest gold values observed at the Sagar property to date (61.57 ounces/ton). Currently the sample is being re-assayed for precious metals and complete mineralogy. Additional samples from the new zone will be sent for assay during the anticipated fall drill program.
This bedrock sample was a selective sample chosen to test for the presence of gold as neither the XRF nor the XRD are considered reliable for this metal. The grades and mineralization present are not necessarily representative of other mineralization that may be identified on the property.
Quartz carbonate vein deposits are one of the most significant sources of gold worldwide (cf. Barley and Groves, 1992;
Groups of samples were then placed into durable rice bags that were shipped out when ready. The remaining coarse reject portions of the samples will remain in storage at the ALS in
Independent Quality Assurance and Quality Control ('QA/QC') Protocol
A QA/QC program is implemented to monitor all assays from the Summer drilling program. Samples were assembled in batches and were continuously leaving the site for immediate testing. Included in each batch of samples are certified reference standards every 20 samples and blank samples comprised of sterile drill core inserted randomly (approximately every 20-30 samples).
