Intersects 2.5 g/t Au Over 151m, Including 25 g/t Au Over 8.7m
Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE:FMAN) has drilled highest grade intercept ever drilled at its Lemhi Gold Project in Idaho from the remaining 20 diamond drill holes of the 2020 35-hole drill programme
The objective of the 2020 Phase 1 drill programme was designed to confirm historical mineralisation and allow the use of over 355 historical drill holes in a maiden National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate. The programme focused on infill and step-out drilling within the known mineralised body to increase confidence and maximise the potential resource.
President and CEO, Will Randall, said the drilling completed by Freeman successfully confirmed historically defined mineralisation and provided valuable infill drilling to increase confidence levels of the upcoming resource estimate.
All holes drilled to date have intersected high-grade shallow oxide gold mineralisation. Drill hole FC20-017C intersected 2.5 g/t Au over 151m, representing the highest gold content in any single hole drilled at Lemhi based on a gold times core length metric.
Selected highlighted results from the 13 holes are 2.5g/t Au over 151m, including 25 g/t Au over 8.7m; 1.2 g/t Au over 42.6m; 0.9 g/t Au over 72.4m, including 2.1 g/t Au over 21.1m; and 1.4 g/t Au over 48.4m, including 2.1 g/t over 22m.
“The 2020 diamond drill programme at Lemhi not only confirmed the vast and comprehensive historical database, but also added confidence,” Mr Randall said.
“This gives us an excellent basis upon which to complete our maiden compliant resource estimate, with the joint objective of maximising the resource count, increasing the resource confidence categories, and identifying areas for future growth.
“Our team is working on the interpretation and modelling and we will have further updates as these results come in.”
