Troymet Exploration has completed the induced polarization (IP) campaign at its Golden Eagle project and has moved a diamond drill to the project for starting the analysis at the Skarn and West Gully zones for epithermal gold mineralization. It has discovered 10 individual drill targets.
This IP survey that has been limited to the West Gully zone has found many drill testing targets. Troymet has drilled only one hole at the zone, which has returned 0.11 g/t gold over 86.84 m and it was closed down in anomalous gold mineralization. Additionally, the ongoing drilling will examine the freshly discovered IP targets and the mineralization cut in this hole.
The company will examine the targets located in the Skarn zone through the ongoing program, where partial drilling performed previously has yielded 1.28 g/t gold over 6.0 m, 7.64 g/t gold over 3.45 m. It has not yet analyzed the region extensively.
The location of the project is in northwest BC, which is the present southern part of the BC-Yukon boundary. Good road access is provided at the property’s centre by means of the South Klondike Highway. The project is located at the Tintina Gold Belt’s south end.
The stream sediment sampling program by the British Columbia Geological Survey has revealed the property’s north part to have gold indicator metals, remarkably anomalous gold values and base metals. Several antimony-arsenic-gold-silver mineralization zones that contain the Skarn and West Gully and gold-in-soil anomalies are present in this approximately 5 x 5 km region, called the North prospect.
