Continues To Expand High-Grade Yukon Find
Snowline Gold Corp. (CSE: SGD) has drilled multiple high-grade intersections in its initial drill programme at the Jupiter Zone on its Einarson project in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
The company intersected 7.05m at 3.96 g/t Au, including 0.7m at 10.65 g/t Au and 4.00m at 4.10 g/t Au, including 0.5 metres at 17.95 g/t Au in the maiden campaign.
Assays from hole J-21-006 & 007 confirm the presence of near-surface gold mineralisation along a covered, regional scale structure. The company has intersected mineralisation associated with this structure in all 15 holes drilled to date.
Step-out drill holes up to 930 metres along the trend continue to hit mineralisation, with even wider mineralised intervals.
“This blind discovery at the Jupiter Zone in our first-ever drill campaign is a remarkable achievement for the Snowline geology team,” said Nikolas Matysek, Director and CEO.
“We have consistently intersected mineralisation in all 15 holes drilled to date and these initial assay results are a strong indication of the high-grade gold potential at Jupiter. The programme will now focus on extending the yet unknown limits of this structure with immediate follow up drilling.”
In hole J-21-006, a significant mineralised zone was intercepted between 41.2 – 48.3m within a 15m highly deformed and fractured fault zone. This zone is characterised by disseminated to locally massive arsenopyrite & pyrite within siltstone overlying a mineralized faulted vein. Holes J-21-005 and J-21-008 were drilled from the same pad, with assay results pending.
A 710m along-strike step-out to the south for holes J-21-010, 011, 012 and 013 brings the total tested strike length to 930m and demonstrates the potential scale of the mineralized system at Jupiter.
Holes J-21-010 and J-21-011 encountered localised zones of disseminated and vein-hosted arsenopyrite mineralization along 121.2 metres and 133.9 metres of core length, respectively. Hole J-21-013 was drilled from the same pad but oriented away from the main target area at 090 azimuth degrees, and nonetheless also encountered zones of arsenopyrite mineralization thought to be associated with gold.
