Talisker Resources Ltd announced assay results from holes SB-2020-010, SB-2020-017A, SB-2020-107AW1, SB-2020-018 and SB-2020-019 from its ongoing drill program at the Bralorne Gold Project in British Columbia. Talisker President and CEO Terry Harbort said "We are very pleased with today's results that clearly highlight the high-grade nature of the Bralorne Gold Project and continue to confirm our geological model, the accuracy of our targeting system and the extensive structural continuity of the veins. Together with the progress we have made validating the historic database we can now implement our planned 2021 resource definition drill program with confidence."
Latest results confirm structural continuity of the 51, 52, 53, 55, 55 Splay, 55HW, 79 vein targets.
Total of 25 vein targets validated (on 10 historical veins) and three new vein discoveries confirmed in 2020 program, four additional vein targets to be validated by end of 2020.
Multiple intercepts further confirm the recently discovered, close to surface Charlotte (four intercepts).
Drilling intersected another broad zone of gold mineralization (Knight Zone).
18,750m of 23,000m 2020 program completed, 6,870 samples currently at assay lab.
Resource drilling initiated on Charlotte Zone, planning for 2021 resource program nearing completion.
995 g/t gold over 0.5m from 1,196.85m to 1,197.35m within 227.55 g/t gold over 2.25m
12.75 g/t gold over 0.6m from 688.80m to 689.40m
13.05 g/t gold over 0.5m from 478.00m to 478.5m
62.70 g/t gold over 0.6m from 730.6m to 731.20m
16.15 g/t gold over 0.5m from 754.45m to 754.95m
Results were also received for the Charlotte Zone, an extensive near-surface gold-bearing zone of quartz veining and brecciation. The Charlotte zone represents broader, lower-grade style of gold mineralization not previously recognised at Bralorne. More drilling is required to determine the potential for near-surface bulk mining potential at Charlotte and other near surface zones recently identified.
To date, Talisker has completed 18,750 metre of its current 23,000 metre drill program, results of which continue to verify and prioritize the interpreted expansion and continuity of targeted vein corridors. A further 6,879 core samples are currently at the laboratory pending release. Today's results are highlighted by a bonanza-grade intersection of 995 g/t gold over 0.5m from the 79 vein (Figures 1, 2, 3). Since initiating drilling in February 2020, exploration has focused on verification of the continuity of high-grade gold-bearing vein targets developed from historic drift samples and level plans.https://taliskerresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Site-infrastructure-photo-1-scaled.jpg
