Comstock Metals has obtained partial results of the phase II soil sampling campaign conducted at the QV Claims, Yukon. The company took 2,974 soil samples totally during 2011. The results from 1,200 further soil samples are pending.
Grid soil sampling, spur and ridge are included in this phase II soil sampling campaign. North parts of the Claims were enclosed by the ridge and spur, and the focus of grid soils were on the gold anomalies identified in southern region during the phase I soil-sampling. Comprehensive grid soil sampling campaign will be conducted after receiving positive results from ridge and spur. The company sampled two gridded regions at the QV claim’s south portions at line spacings of 100 m and took the soil samples from 50 m apart along the lines.
The concentrations of anomalous gold, mercury, arsenic and barium have outlined the two soil geochemical anomalies, in which the primary is 2,500 x 500 m and the next is 1,300 x 350 m.
The company has discovered two clear anomalous trends of gold mineralization by means of the grid soil sampling program. The area of one trend is 2,500 x 500 m and is located in the north-east direction. The trends in the northeastern part carry ore-grade gold mineralization, at Coffee and the Golden Saddle project. The area of the second anomalous zone is 1,300 x 350 m and is situated in the northwest trend.
Comstock has received positive soil samples results and is scheduling for drilling and trenching program for the targets found during 2011 soil sampling.
