Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK | FRA:M1C1) has announced a new gold discovery while mechanical surface trenching on the Shabaqua Corners Gold Property.
The property is located within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, approximately 54km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario near Shabaqua Corners and on trend to Delta Resources Delta 1 project. The property has seen very little exploration work.
Most of the company’s summer trenching programme was focused primarily on recently discovered gold mineralization at the Echo Zone, East Zone, and Main Zone, with some additional trenching on some highly prospective peripheral areas with encouraging gold assays and alteration.
The new discovery called the Western Shear Zone was the result of a trenching programme following up on a recce soil grid laid out on the western claim block which returned a soil assay of 715ppb, which was the highest assay returned for this summer’s soil sampling programme.
Subsequent trenching in the area uncovered a narrow shear zone where a grab sample returned 18.5g/t gold. Metals Creek has stated that there is gold mineralization associated with an east-west trending highly weathered very rusty friable shear zone with strong pervasive iron carbonate alteration and hosted within mafic volcanics.
This assay is Metals Creeks furthest western result to date located approximately 935m west of the main zone and the only known gold occurrence to date on the western claim block. Numerous other soil sample anomalies were trenched and the results from these and from this summer’s trenching programme will be released as assays are received and compiled.
The eastern boundary of the property is located 1.57km west of Delta Resources (DLTA) drill hole DL-22-18 which returned an intercept of 5.92g/t Au over. Trenching conducted on Delta’s ground 390m east of the property boundary, returned an interval of 2.22g/t Au over 8m.
