On the Predominant zone, gap DO-21-304 returned 15 metres grading 1.5 g/t gold from 428 metres downhole, a sediment-hosted intercept. The opening additionally intercepted 5 metres grading 4 g/t gold from 143 metres downhole, inside a broader intersection of 15 metres at 1.6 g/t gold.
Maple Gold plans to launch an up to date Douay useful resource estimate by the tip of the yr. This may embrace outcomes from 19,000 metres of further drilling because the useful resource was final up to date in 2019.
“Encountering a number of bonanza grade gold zones flanking both facet of the Casa Berardi North fault highlights the numerous exploration potential for the sparsely drilled northern flank of the Porphyry zone. The deeper bonanza grade gold mineralization in gap DO-21-295 stays open to the east, with only a single drill gap over greater than 600 metres, which gives a compelling exploration goal for comply with up drilling,” stated Maple Gold’s VP exploration Fred Speidel. “We’re excited to construct upon the spectacular outcomes from the JV’s preliminary drill marketing campaign, with drilling anticipated to renew within the Nika and 531 zones within the fourth quarter of 2021.”
The earlier estimate included 8 million indicated tonnes grading 1.52 g/t gold and 65.8 million inferred tonnes grading 0.97 g/t gold throughout the proposed pit shell. The underground portion included 5.4 million tonnes grading 1.52 g/t gold.
