Rokmaster Resources Corp. (TSXV: RKR) commenced a surface diamond drill programme at its Revel Ridge Project in British Columbia, Canada.
Drilling will additionally test the Zinc Creek Showing, which occurs approximately 920 m to the southeast of the southernmost 1991 surface drillholes 91-73 and 91-74.
Rock samples collected in 2021 from the massive sulphide portion of the Zinc Creek Showing assayed up to 7.20 g/t Au, 121.0 g/t Ag, 6.55 % Pb, and 12.99 % Zn. This style of mineralisation is highly characteristic of the RRMZ and is located on strike at a significant distance from previous drilling.
The drill programme will total approximately 5,000 metres and is designed to expand the volume of the RRMZ as defined in the updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate filed on SEDAR on January 17, 2022:
- Measured & Indicated (M&I): 1.36 million gold equivalent (“AuEq”) ounces contained within 6.73 million tonnes with an average grade of 6.27 g/t AuEq.
- Inferred (Inf): 1.22 million AuEq ounces contained within 6.00 million tonnes at an average grade of 6.33 g/t AuEq.
Many other prospective targets within the Project and surrounding Revelstoke properties will be advanced using mapping, prospecting, and geochemical sampling. The extensive field programs completed by Rokmaster over the past two years produced significant rock sample results to revisit and potentially expand upon.
The full assay results from the spring 2022 drill program are expected to be received by the Company in the coming weeks and will be published shortly after.
“The entire Rokmaster team is excited to be back at Revel Ridge for the surface drill programme. We have multiple targets to test with drilling, geological mapping, prospecting, and geochemistry within Revel Ridge Project and our surrounding Revelstoke properties,” President and CEO of Rokmaster, John Mirko, said.
“The ongoing drill programme will principally test the RRMZ at depth to the northwest with broad, approximately 100 m step-outs. These large drillhole step-outs will further test the remarkable continuity and homogeneity of the mineralisation in this area. The results of this programme will be included in the next resource update, which is planned to be complete in 2023.
“We are also eagerly anticipating the results of the updated PEA, which is scheduled to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2022. This update will apply the 2021 resource estimate in addition to recent metallurgical advancements to the already positive 2020 PEA.”
