Expands Discovery To Over 750m In Strike Length
Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX-VGCX) has successfully expanded the Raven prospect to over 750m in strike length, tripling the extent of known mineralisation as part of its 2020 Dublin Gulch Camp exploration campaign in Canada’s Yukon Territory.
Drillhole NG20-033C, a 250m step out hole to the east returned 2.77 g/t Au over 65.7m.
President and CEO, John McConnell, said gold assay results from an additional 2,162 samples have been received representing 13 new drillholes from the 2020 Raven drill campaign. Multiple, long intersections of gold, typical of Raven-style mineralization, have been identified, including:
- 1.01 g/t Au over 19.8 m in hole NG20-024C
- 1.24 g/t Au over 4.7 m in hole NG20-026C
- 1.02 g/t Au over 21.1 m in hole NG20-027C
- 1.47 g/t Au over 5.5 m in hole NG20-031C
- 2.77 g/t Au over 65.7 m in hole NG20-033C
- 2.31 g/t Au over 16.0 m in hole NG20-034C
“We are very excited with the grade and scale Raven continues to return,” Mr McConnell said.
“Of particular note, is hole NG20-33C; a significant step-out hole 250m east of any previous drilling which returned 2.77 g/t Au over 65.7m.
“Raven remains open in all directions and to depth, representing a highly prospective target as we continue to define the Dublin Gulch Camp.”
Raven, Victoria’s newest gold discovery, was the focus of these 13 drillholes which were designed to test the extent of the newly discovered gold mineralisation at Raven through grid-based drilling to the north, south and east of the previously defined Raven mineral trend. Raven is open to the north, south, east, west and at depth.
The recently completed 2020 Dublin Gulch Exploration Programme culminated in:
- 35 diamond drill holes totalling over 8,040m;
- over 3,000m of surface trench construction;
- the collection of 3,700 soil samples; and
- the shipment of more than 6,000 core and trench samples.
In addition to Raven, another high priority, intrusive related and hosted gold system, Lynx, has been tested with over 590m of diamond drilling, 720m of trenches and over 1,600 soils samples
