Expands Multiple High Grade Gold Zones With Phase 2 Sampling
Trailbreaker Resources Ltd (TSXV:TBK) has identified a range of gold zones with results from the Phase 2 exploration at its 100%-owned Atsutla Gold Project located in northern British Columbia.
Assay results indicate widespread high-grade gold values across all previously defined zones as well as the expansion of known gold mineralisation at the Highlands zone. Assay results from the Phase 2 programme include:
Highlands Zone: Gold values in excess of 100 g/t gold (Au) have been returned from a 750 m x 600 m area with values as high as 222.05 g/t (6.48 oz/ton) Au at the newly discovered visible gold showing and 165.4 g/t (4.82 oz/ton) Au with 1,894 g/t (55.25 oz/ton) silver (Ag) from an area 430m to the south.
New – Christmas Creek Zone: High grade mineralisation has been discovered 2.0 km east of the Highlands zone. A 30 cm-wide galena-rich quartz vein in bedrock returned assay values up to 102 g/t Au and 524 g/t Ag.
Willie Jack Trend: The source of the 1.2 km-long Willie Jack gold-in-soil trend has been confirmed. A series of metasediment-hosted quartz veins along the boundary of the Christmas Creek batholith have returned assay values up to 9.89 g/t Au from in-situ bedrock and proximal float. The veins have been traced for at least 700m.
Swan Zone: High-grade gold has been discovered at the Swan zone; a 900 m x 700 m Au-Ag-arsenic (As)-antimony (Sb)-copper (Cu)-molybdenum (Mo)-lead (Pb) soil anomaly, with soil samples assaying up to 406 ppb Au. Grab samples from bedrock, proximal float, and talus have returned grades up to 11.5 g/t Au in bedrock and 175 g/t Ag in float.
“We have now proved the existence of widespread, high-grade gold across all explored areas of the Atsutla Gold project,” CEO, Daithi Mac Gearailt, said.
“The spatial extent and high-grade nature of mineralisation found at surface at the Highlands and Christmas zones has again exceeded our expectations. Confirming the bedrock source of the extensive gold-in-soil anomalies at the Willie Jack and Swan zones has moved this project into the drill planning stage. We are very excited for next season!”
With the addition of recent staking, the Atsutla Gold Project now covers 37,727 hectares and spans 36 km. The project area is located 70 km south of the Yukon-British Columbia border and 130 km northwest of the community of Dease Lake, BC.
The 2021 exploration programme involved the collection of 2,100 soil samples and 532 prospecting rock grab samples, as well as geological mapping and an airborne magnetic and radiometric survey.
