Highest-Grade Gold Interval To Date Intersected At Enchi
Newcore Gold Ltd (TSXV: NCAU, OTCQX: NCAUF) has received additional high-grade drill results from the 66,000m programms underway at the company’s 100% owned Enchi Gold Project in Ghana.
Drilling at the Boin Gold Deposit at Enchi has intersected the highest-grade interval to date of 95.16 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) over 2.0m from 109 m in RC hole KBRC250. Drilling also continues to encounter wide zones of mineralisation, with results intersecting 1.28 g/t Au over 74.0 m from 121 m in diamond hole KBDD064.
Drilling on the central portion at Boin has extended the drill tested mineralisation down dip, encountering wide zones of higher-grade gold mineralisation.
Diamond hole KBDD064 intersected a wide zone of gold mineralisation of 1.28 g/t Au over 74.0 m from 121 m to 195 m (sulphide zone), including a series of higher-grade structures including: 2.65 g/t Au over 6.4 m from 122 m to 128.4 m; 9.93 g/t Au over 1.4 m from 136.0 m to 137.4 m; 2.24 g/t Au over 6.1 m from 149.3 m to 155.4 m; 4.04 g/t Au over 6.4 m from 170.6 m to 177.0 m; and 2.41 g/t Au over 4.0 m from 189.0 m to 193.0 m.
Drilling on the southern portion of the Boin Gold Deposit continues to intersect multiple wide zones of gold mineralisation.
RC hole KBRC264 intersected three gold mineralised zones with results including: 0.50 g/t Au over 9.0 m from 33 m to 42 m (oxide zone); 0.39 g/t Au over 30.0 m from 72 m to 102 m (oxide and upper sulphide zone); and 0.51 g/t Au over 53.0 m from 177 m to 230 m, including 1.17 g/t Au over 9.0 m from 187 m (sulphide zone).
RC hole KBRC268 intersected two principal gold mineralised zones: 0.79 g/t Au over 25.0 m from 60 m to 85 m (upper sulphide zone); and 0.54 g/t Au over 13.0 m from 108 m to 121 m (sulphide zone).
President and CEO, Luke Alexander, said approximately 50% of the Boin gold-in-soil anomaly remains untested by drilling.
“The ongoing 66,000m drill programme continues to deliver strong results, with this set of results encountering the highest-grade gold intercept to date at Enchi with 95.16 g/t Au over 2.0 m from 109 m in shallow sulphide mineralisation,” Mr Alexander said.
“These results complement other higher-grade gold mineralisation discovered on the Project, with wide zones of gold mineralisation encountered that also include a series of higher-grade gold structures.
“Drilling at Boin continues to highlight the open-ended nature of the deposit, as well as the potential for higher grade sulphide mineralisation at depth, which is consistent with our geological model.
“90% of the holes drilled to date as part of the current drill programme have encountered gold mineralisation, with approximately 46,000m of the drill programme yet to be incorporated into the current 1.41 million ounce Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate, underscoring the resource growth potential across the district scale property.”
