Promising Preliminary Results From High-Grade Domino Zone
Scottie Resources Corp. (TSXV: SCOT) has returned promising grab sample results and preliminary results from an induced polarisation survey carried out over the Domino Zone in British Columbia.
Numerous high-grade surficial samples (up to 81 g/t gold) have increased the strike length of the mineralised zone to 900 metres, and the width to 450 metres. The Domino Zone was discovered in 2019, when high-grade surficial samples (up to 536 g/t gold) were collected in an area of recent glacial retreat.
CEO, Bradley Rourke, said the zone is located on strike, two kilometres west of the known high-grade deposit of the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine located in the southern area of BC’s Golden Triangle.
“Our detailed mapping and sampling this year has shown that the structure discovered in 2019 is much more extensive than originally thought, and the high-grade mineralisation is widespread and continues underneath the glacier to the south,” Mr Rourke said,
“Results from the IP survey suggest that there are highly prospective drill targets along the structure, just west of our 2020 drilling.
“The size and grade distribution of this mineralising system indicates that it may host a significant gold deposit, and Scottie will continue to drill the expanding zone in 2021.”
Located ~2 km due west of the Scottie Gold Mine, the Domino Zone exhibits similar mineralization style, grade, and orientation to the past-producing mine. Glacial retreat has only recently exposed this area, leading to the 2019 discovery of multiple large (10+ m long) massive sulphide lenses.
During the 2019 programme, first pass surficial sampling returned 9 samples over 5 g/t gold, including a 5.3 m long chip sample averaging 10.5 g/t gold, with the highest-grade grab sample graded 536 g/t gold and 129 g/t silver.
