Latest Results Confirm Historical Mineralisation At Idaho Project
Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN)has received promising assay results from the core of four of 34 diamond drill holes on Freeman Gold’s 100% owned Lemhi Gold Project located in Idaho.
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.
President and CEO, Will Randall, said the drill programme focused on infill and step-out drilling within the known mineralised body to increase confidence and maximise the potential resource.
All four holes intersected high-grade shallow oxide gold. Selected highlighted results from these first holes are:
- 3.3 g/t Au over 25m, including 5.4 g/t Au over 7m;
- 3.4 g/t Au over 51.6m, including 14 g/t Au over 10m;
- 3.2 g/t Au over 14.6m; and
- 1.8 g/t Au over 92m, including 8.7 g/t Au over 7.7m and 15.1 g/t Au over 4.3m.
“These initial results clearly demonstrate the high-grade nature of the Lemhi gold project, including project enhancing thick shallow high-grade oxide gold zones,” Mr Randall said.
“This is a great start to the drill campaign confirming historically defined mineralisation as well as providing a more comprehensive understanding of the gold mineralisation and its controls.”
