Ashburton Ventures Nearing Drilling Completion at Deep Creek Project

Ashburton Ventures is nearing the completion of the drill campaign at its Deep Creek Project, which is situated 112 km north of Elko in Nevada.

The company has drilled 27 core holes, totaling 3,178 m, in the current program. It has intersected approximately 57% of the core and sent it for assaying. The results for 20% of the drill core have been obtained. The company has intersected the drill hole DC-11-C-5 and returned 3.67 g/t gold over 6 m in the Waterfall Vein region. It has also encountered 6.94 g/t gold over 1.2 m in the hole DC-11-C-13 and 2.54 g/t gold over 1.5 m in the hole DC-11-C-10, which are in the Upper Vein area.

The inconsistent intervals are connected with the breccias in the Proterozoic McCoy group’s variably silicified limestones in the Upper Vein and Waterfall Vein areas. The company is of the view that the mineralization may be occurring in the breccias until validated by exploration.

The company has cut all the cores by means of saws positioned at a facility situated in Utah and on the site in Nevada. It has submitted half of the HQ drill core for treatment at the ALS Chemex Lab in North Vancouver, Elko, Nevada and British Columbia. The Au-AA24 protocol has been used for assaying the samples for gold and the Au-GRA22 protocol is used for re-testing the overlimit values.

The company will develop an entire interpretation and summary results as further assays in the coming weeks.
