Elissa Resources Achieves Final Drilling Preparation Phase for Sage Creek Gold Project

Elissa Resources has reached the final preparation phases for a 600 m drilling at its Sage Creek Gold Project, in east-central Idaho, U.S.A. The company will begin the drilling program immediately when the snow cover at the project moves away and permits the drill crews to operate.

The company has considered that the Sage Creek’s tabular gold-bearing unit, which is a soft dipping unit of banded iron and chert structure that can be analyzed through shallow diamond core holes program for potential targets. The occurrence of extensive gold mineralization at the property is shown by the data from sampling, mapping, and geophysical surveys. Elissa found 30 g/t gold in the gold-bearing rock float all through the region and cut up to 3.0 g/t gold over 10 m. The area of property is part of the wide Belt Supergroup sedimentary rock series of the Proterozoic period. It has several significant metal mining districts all over western Montana, southern British Columbia and northern Idaho. This unit lies beneath the shallow region and sub-parallel to the hill slants. So, numerous historical gold mines at this property were explored through the open-pit processes.

Also, the company is planning to test the property area for potential rare earth elements (REE) mineralization. There are numerous REE deposits near the surrounding regions of Sage Creek project.
