Drilling campaigns since 2020 have persistently intersected broad new zones of mineralization, with step-out drilling most well-liked because the workforce tries to ascertain the lateral footprint of the Buck Primary mineralized construction.
“We’ve got confirmed that Buck Primary hosts these massive intercepts of near-surface mineralization. We’ve got intercepts of as much as 300 metres from floor of 0.5 gram gold per tonne, as much as 1 gram. And if you work in a gold-equivalent calculation, which incorporates gold, silver, and zinc, have been have greater than a gram per tonne over 300 meters proper from floor,” says Alexander.
