The drilling was highlighted by gap PB21-02, which returned 173.3 g/t silver-equivalent over 50.1 metres from 67.9 metres, together with 220.32 g/t silver-equivalent over 18.9 metres and 278.62 g/t silver-equivalent over 6.4 metres, and together with 393.52 g/t silver-equivalent over 6.4 metres.
“We’re very inspired by the grade and measurement implications of this silver-rich mineralization system and its coincidence with the lately outlined soil and geophysics anomalies,” Don Dudek, VP of exploration for Wolfden, stated.
“Our purpose is to find and delineate an underground useful resource of 20 million tonnes or extra, which seems achievable with the sort of mineralized system. The hydrothermal system seems to be very sturdy, properly endowed and each structurally and stratigraphy managed.”
The core of the Huge Silver undertaking is a 1,500-by-2,000-metre space of historic silver, zinc, lead, copper and gold mineralization, with historic drill intercepts together with 530.2 g/t silver-equivalent over 15.2 metres and 14.63 g/t gold and 1.07% copper over 7.0 metres.
The excessive treasured metallic polymetallic mineralization is hosted by sediments, mafic volcanics and hydrothermal breccias. By drilling, soil sampling, and induced polarization and floor magnetic geophysical surveys, Wolfden has to date outlined and expanded the footprint of the mineralized zones, with the brand new knowledge offering prioritized goal areas for future drilling.
Elsewhere in Maine, Wolfden is seeking to advance its wholly owned Pickett Mountain undertaking in Penobscot county, thought-about one of many highest-grade undeveloped polymetallic large sulphide deposits in North America. In November, the corporate offered an up to date useful resource for the undertaking, totalling 2.7 million indicated tonnes averaging 8.91% zinc, 3.83% lead, 1.22% copper, 97.2 g/t silver and 0.8 g/t gold (17.72% zinc-equivalent).
Wolfden additionally has two nickel sulphide deposits in Manitoba, the place an enlargement drill program lately kicked off at its Rice Island nickel-copper-cobalt undertaking.
