Drills 109.37 g/t Gold Over 2.68m
Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSXV: RPX) has obtained notable results from its 2021 drilling programme at the Wawa Gold Project in Ontario.
The results include the discovery of high-grade gold mineralisation in the Minto Vein 30 metres down-dip of the current boundary of the Minto Mine Deposit inferred resource.
- Intersection in SD-21-298A of 109.37 g/t gold (un-cut) over 2.68m true width (TW) in the Minto Vein, including 314 g/t gold over 0.84m (TW) and 26.93 g/t gold over 0.95 metre (TW), 30m away from the current boundary of the resource.
- Extension of high-grade gold mineralisation in SD-21-298A in the newly identified Sadowski Gold Zone with the intersection of 24.8 g/t gold over 1.15m core length (CL).
- Visible gold has been observed in three different veins in the Jubilee Shear Zone in SD-21-298A (results pending).
“The confirmation that high-grade gold mineralisation extends down-dip of the current resource of the Minto Mine deposit is a significant development for the Wawa Gold Project,” President and CEO, Quentin Yarie, said.
“With the overlapping relationship between the Minto Mine and the Jubilee Shear Zones, we have two exploration targets that are testing concurrently with the same drill hole. Additionally, the extension of high-grade gold mineralisation in the Sadowski Gold Zone continues to show that the property has significant greenfield exploration potential.
“Red Pine has two active drill rigs on-site that are concurrently testing the Surluga deposit to the North and South, and the Minto Mine Deposit. A third drill is on site waiting for a crew with which the company will test some of the greenfield targets near the historic Darwin Grace mine.”
As part of its on-going 2021 exploration drilling programme, Red Pine is testing the northern and southern depth extensions of the Surluga Deposit and the Minto Mine South Deposit.
One drill rig is active at the northern end of the Surluga Deposit and one drill rig is active at the southern end of the Surluga Deposit. The southern drill is also testing the Minto Mine South Deposit.
At the southern end of the Surluga Deposit, in holes SD-21-296A, 297A and 298A, the Jubilee Shear Zone was successfully intersected up to 400 metres away from the current boundary of the Surluga Deposit resource. Results in the Jubilee Shear Zone for holes SD-21-296A and 297A have been released, whereas those for 298A remain pending (bottom half of hole 298A). Visible gold has been observed in three different veins in the Jubilee Shear Zone in SD-21-298A.
Drilling at the southern end of the Surluga Deposit also resulted in the discovery of the down-dip extension of the Minto Vein in the Minto Mine Shear Zone in SD-21-297A, and to the discovery of significant mineralisation in the Minto Vein in SD-21-298A. Additional drilling is necessary to define the size and extent of this new zone of high-grade gold mineralisation in the Minto Vein.
Hole SD-21-298A also continues to expand the potential of the newly discovered Sadowski Gold Zone, a new near-surface high-grade zone of mineralisation. The Sadowski Gold Zone is formed by a network of quartz veins variably transposed in superimposed shearing.
At the northern end of the Surluga Deposit, drilling indicated that the Jubilee Shear Zone extends down-dip of the current limit of diamond drilling in the area. In hole SD-21-301 (assay results pending), visible gold has been observed in two quartz veins in two separate domains of the Jubilee Shear Zone.
