Rokmaster Resources Update on Revel Ridge Yellowjacket Zone
Rokmaster Resources Corp has presented assay results of diamond drill holes RR21-34 to RR21-40 and wedge drillholes RR21-28a and RR21-28b. The assay results presented in these drillholes once again conclusively demonstrate the strong lateral and vertical continuity of gold enriched massive sulphides in the Revel Ridge Main Zone and silver-zinc mineralization hosted within the Revel Ridge Yellowjacket Zone and related mineralized zones. The results of these drillholes demonstrate:
The potential onset of mineralogical zonation, with the development of strong gold mineralization effectively occurring in the absence of arsenical sulphide phases within the Revel Ridge hydrothermal and structural system, suggested by drillhole DDH RR21-40.
Higher grade mineralized zones are forming strongly consistent, predictable mineralized shapes or solids at production stope scale (validated by the use of controlled drilling practices and wedged drillholes).
A third mineralized silver-zinc rich sulphide zone is developing in the southeastern deposit area between the RRMZ and Revel Ridge Footwall Zone (RRFZ). This mineralized solid is currently identified as the Revel Ridge 28 Zone (RR28Z). In the RR28Z, silver-zinc mineralization may occupy much of the interval between the RRMZ and RRFZ which effectively merges the two zones and produces a thick, precious metals enhanced sulphide intersection.
Significant gold intersections have also been obtained from the RRFZ which are typically cored 20 to 30 m below the RRMZ.
John Mirko, President and CEO of Rokmaster commented, "The nine drillholes in this news release compile the final results of 42 underground drillholes of the 16, 400 metre Phase 1 underground drill program conducted at Revel Ridge. Over a short nine-month period, underground drilling at Revel Ridge continues to establish this gold-rich, polymetallic sulphide resource as one of the premier undeveloped gold deposits within the Western Cordillera. Within this large-scale structural and hydrothermal system spanning several kilometres, we have discovered the development of a previously undiscovered mineralized zone – the RR28Z – in addition to new southeast extensions to the RRYZ, and have the first indications for the development of gold mineralization within the RRMZ with a greatly reduced association with arsenical sulphides. As we move into the first phase of the surface drill program, we begin to target new gold mineralized zones at very shallow depths with full knowledge that mineralization in this environment extends at the kilometre scale, both along strike and at depth. We have high confidence that our surface drilling program will meet with the same remarkable success as our recently completed Phase 1 underground program. Rokmaster looks forward to joining that exclusive group of explorers who have, on every occasion, significantly expanded the Revel Ridge resource."
