Blackrock Gold Corp has presented an update on its Victor vein target (a.k.a. Murray vein) at the Tonopah West project. Recent developments along the eastern border of the Tonopah West project show the Victor vein extends 480 metres to the east. Core drilling along strike of the Victor/Murray vein adjacent to Blackrock's eastern border returned 1,079 g/t AgEq (5.19 g/t Au and 560 g/t Ag; Au/Ag=100/1) over a 0.9 metre interval in SUM20-17. Additional reported intercepts in the Victor/Murray zone included 582 g/t AgEq (2.41 g/t Au and 341 g/t Ag) over 0.7 metres and 6.8 metres grading 212 which included a high interval 0.8 metres of 727 g/t AgEq (3.56 g/t Au and 371 g/t Ag).
These drill intercepts confirm the Victor/Murray vein system extends to the eastern border of the Tonopah West project giving an additional 480 metres of strike on the Company's project. Blackrock is awaiting additional assays from further drillholes from this target area.
