Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX: TMR, TSXV: TMRR) has obtained further very high-grade assay results from the Elizabeth Gold Project in southern British Columbia.
The latest seven drill-holes are the final assays from the 2022 drill programme and include intersections of No.9 Vein (EZ-22-23, EZ-22-26, EZ-22-28, EZ-22-35, EZ-22-36), Blue Vein (EZ-22- 34, EZ-22-35, EZ-22-36), and the West HW Vein (EZ-22-24).
“The final drilling results from the 2022 drilling programme released today provide further evidence of the extension of the high-grade gold zone associated with the No.9 Vein to over 250m and the Blue Vein to over 285m,” President and CEO, Jason Bahnsen, said.
“In addition, we are extremely pleased to announce the potential discovery of a new vein set located midway between the SW Vein and the West Vein evidenced by drill hole EZ-22-24 that intersected high-grade gold, 14.3g/t over 1.10m.”
The No. 9 vein is a vein for which its north-eastern extent was mapped and initially explored via an underground adit in the early 1940’s and was subject to a limited amount of historic drilling in the 1980s.
During the 2022 drill programme, Tempus completed 10 drill-holes targeting a potential strike extension from the historical workings to the southwest. Several of the No.9 Vein drill-holes intersected wide zones of quartz veining including three drill-holes reporting the presence of visible gold.
Drill-hole EZ-22-28 is the most northern hole drilled on the No.9 Vein in 2022. On 26 September 2022,
Tempus announced that visible gold was observed in multiple locations over approximately 2m of the drill core. Assays for EZ-22-28 confirmed the presence of high-grade gold mineralisation with an intersection of 5.2g/t gold over 6.60m from 214.10m including a subsection with “Bonanza” grades of up to 35.0g/t gold over 1.63m from 216.75m.
Drill-hole EZ-22-23, located approximately 40m south of EZ-22-28, returned wide zones of high-grade mineralization including 5.6g/t gold over 13.70m from 141.1m, including 5.4g/t gold over 0.70m from 144.00m, and 24.0g/t gold over 2.78m from 152.02m.
Drill-hole EZ-22-26 intersected 1.4g/t gold over 3.79m from 173.09m.
Drill-holes EZ-22-35 and EZ-22-36 are located in the southern strike extension zone of the No.9 Vein and the Blue Vein.
– Drill-hole EZ-22-35 intersected the No.9 Vein and the Blue Vein. The EZ-22-35 No.9 Vein intersection assayed 9.5g/t gold over 1.28m from 129.18m.
– Drill-hole EZ-22-36 intersected the No.9 Vein and the Blue Vein. The EZ-22-36 intersected the No.9 Vein assaying 0.5g/t gold over 1.17m of quartz veining from 173.09m.
With today’s No.9 Vein assays, “bonanza” and high-grade gold mineralization has now been demonstrated over a strike length of more than 250m.
