Canadian explorer Evergold (TSXV: EVER; US-OTC: EVGUF) owns precious-base metallic initiatives in Nevada and the Toodoggone and Golden Triangle areas of British Columbia.
The Toronto-headquartered junior is concentrated on advancing its 100%-owned flagship Golden Lion gold-silver-zinc-lead venture in north-central B.C., about 360 km northwest of the city of Mackenzie.
The property covers 5,099 hectares of extremely potential rocks within the Toodoggone district of the prolific metal-endowed Stikine terrane, an space that hosts a number of porphyry and epithermal mineralised programs and high-grade past-producing mines and is presently seeing a resurgence of exploration and growth exercise. Vital initiatives within the area embrace Benchmark Minerals’ (TSXV: BNCH; US-OTC: CYRTF) Legal professionals gold-silver venture, about 25 km south of Golden Lion, and the Ranch gold-copper venture owned by Thesis Gold (TSXV: TAU), 15 km to the southwest.
Evergold just lately accomplished its 2021 drill program on Golden Lion. The drilling comprised 9 holes (1,811 metres) and focused the GL1 Fundamental zone.
Kevin Keough, Evergold’s president and CEO, says the “last three holes of the drilling marketing campaign intercepted by far the best grades of gold, silver, zinc, and lead ever achieved on the property in what we at the moment are calling our first high-grade area.”
“The drilling established that this high-grade area happens inside a broad envelope of reasonable grade mineralisation, with the excessive grades beginning at floor and increasing to not less than 190 metres down-dip to the northeast.”
The three drill holes had been GL21-025, which returned 40.31 metres grading 1.99 grams gold per tonne, 23.7 grams silver per tonne, 1.2% zinc, and 0.5% lead from 119.69 metres downhole, together with 2.81 metres of 10.35 grams gold, 651.3 grams silver, 10.9% zinc, and three.7% lead.
Gap GL1-024 intersected 66 metres of 1.36 grams gold, 11 grams silver, 0.3% zinc, and 0.2% lead ranging from 43 metres, together with 3.3 metres of 11.3 grams gold, 12 grams silver, 1.9% zinc, and a couple of.3% lead; and GL1-023 hit 40.88 metres of 0.98 gram gold, 1.8 grams silver, 0.4% zinc, and 0.5% lead from 82.12 metres, together with 1.16 metres of 10.91 grams gold, 5.5 grams silver, 1.4% zinc, and 0.2% lead.
In response to Keough, earlier sampling and mapping by Evergold mixed with the corporate’s 2020 drill program (16 holes totalling 2,988 metres) confirmed the presence of an in depth valuable and base metals-enriched epithermal system at floor that consisted of a broad mineralised envelope outlined by bulk tonnage-style intercepts.
“Geophysical surveys performed on the identical time prompt the potential for system strengthening at depth, which we opted to check with the 2021 drill program. Whereas the excessive grades are actually there at depth, one optimistic shock of the 2021 program is that in addition they come proper to floor between the broadly area earlier drilling,” he stated.
Geological modelling by the corporate signifies that GL1 Fundamental is a big, shallow, steeply northeast-dipping, northwest-southeast trending gold-silver plus zinc and lead zone that is still open alongside strike and at depth.
The zone is located “in proximity to a fault contact and mineralisation is traceable with sampling alongside some 2,700 metres of strike, with our broadly spaced drilling thus far testing solely alongside about 500 metres,” Keough stated.
He added that the 2021 drill outcomes recommend vital potential for a number of high-grade domains to emerge as drill density is elevated and exploration pushes into untested areas down-dip in addition to alongside adjoining areas of the key fault related to the zone.
Evergold is modelling mixed soil, drill assays, and geophysical datasets for GL1 Fundamental with a view to releasing imagery from the modelling train early in 2022. Keough says these fashions will information the following drill program and, now that the corporate’s first high-grade area has been recognized, it ought to be “very effectively positioned to quickly advance the GL1 Fundamental prospect in 2022, and ship superior, high-grade drill outcomes.”
The corporate can also be “well-financed with about $3 million within the treasury,” he stated.
Evergold’s different properties in B.C. embrace the high-grade gold-silver Snoball venture within the Golden Triangle and the drill-ready Holy Cross gold-silver-copper venture, about 60 km north of Artemis Gold’s (TSXV: ARTG) Blackwater venture. It additionally owns the high-grade past-producing Rockland gold-silver venture within the Walker Lane Development in Nevada.
