Lahontan Gold Corp. (TSX.V: LG) has begun its 2022 exploration program at its 9.2km² Moho Project in Nevada’s Walker Lake, U.S. Previous exploration started in 2018 includes almost 2,000 metres of core drilling, over 370 underground and surface rock-chip and channel samples, and a project-wide ground magnetic survey.
Highlights of the 2018 drilling programme include:
- Drill hole MOH-002C: 1.4 metres grading 12.8 g/t Au, 312 g/t Ag, 10.2% Pb (20.7 g/t Au Eq), (150.0 – 151.4 metres down-hole)
- Drill hole MOH-005C: 1.2 metres grading 9.6 g/t Au and 4.1 g/t Ag (75.6 – 75.8 metres downhole)
- Drill hole MOH-006C: 0.4 metres grading 6.2 g/t Au, 123 g/t Ag, 3.9% Pb (9.2 g/t Au Eq), (154.9 – 155.3 metres down-hole)
The company states that the Moho Project explores a series of en-echelon, parallel, precious and base metal vein systems that are exposed over a strike length in excess of 2,500 metres, and drilling to date has been very shallow. Based on drilling and underground sampling, the Moho system remains unconstrained.
“Moho is the most underexplored high-grade vein camp in the Walker Lane. Given the strike length of the multiple parallel veins, the vertical range of precious metal mineralization, and the scant shallow drilling to date, Lahontan views Moho as an exploration asset with considerable upside and we look forward to drilling at Moho later this year,” said Kimberly Ann, CEO, president, director, and founder of Lahontan Gold.
