Intersects 12.4 g/t Gold And 8.7 g/t Silver Over 2.69M
Scottie Resources Corp. (TSXV: SCOT) has unveiled promising assay results for the first ever drill programme at the new Domino Zone near the Scottie Gold Mine in the Golden Triangle area of British Columbia.
The results include a high-grade intercept of 12.4 g/t gold and 8.7 g/t silver over 2.69m in which the hole ended in mineralisation at a depth of 121.5m.
Drilling also revealed near surface mineralization grading 19.9 g/t gold and 71.6 g/t silver over 0.94 metres hosted in a wider zone of moderate mineralisation grading 2.48 g/t gold and 8.63 g/t silver over 15.46 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. The zone is located on strike, two kilometres west of the known high-grade deposit of the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine.
“These drill results confirm our hypothesis of a high-grade gold mineralising system occurring along strike from the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine,” CEO, Bradley Rourke, said.
“The 900m strike length of the Domino zone, combined with the two km separation from the mine provides exceptional potential to host a large high-grade deposit.
“Drilling in 2021 will continue to target large high-grade dilatational zones, similar to the Scottie Gold Mine throughout the length of this structure.”
The 2020 field season marked the first ever drill programme at the Domino Zone with a total of 18 holes.
Preliminary mapping and sampling of the Domino Zone indicate that mineralization is linked to two intersecting sets of discreet shear structures. Drilling was done with an oriented core setup in order to provide maximum value from the data collected.
The information garnered from the 2020 drill programme will be combined with newly acquired geophysics and detailed structural mapping to drill target structurally controlled high-grade ore shoots in this mineralized corridor during 2021.
