Choice Gold has announced the new results from the phase 1A drill program conducted at its Sugarloaf Peak gold project, west Arizona.
The company has encountered multiple anomalous gold intervals in the hole SGL-11-03 and has agreed for the estimation of the three major mineralized zones. During 2009, Riverside Resources drilled the diamond drill hole SLP-09-02 and had not assayed till it returned .73g/t gold.
The company has cut 0.407 g/t gold over 9.63 m, 0.441 g/t gold over 10.64 m and 0.352 g/t gold over 14.33 m in the hole SGL-11-03 and 0.730 g/t gold over 11.42 m in the hole SLP-09-02.
Choice Gold drill tested only a small part at the property during the phase 1A program. The company has formed numerous fresh targets for additional appraisal, depending on the structural information, surficial gold anomalies, Titan 24 survey analysis, wide distribution of sericite-silica-pyrite alteration and aeromagnetic study. The expansion of the high-grade mineralization laterally in the hole SGL-11-04 will be one of the goals of the follow-up drill work. The company is waiting for the latest mapping campaign results that are not sampled early and may possibly include several drill targets.
The company drilled 2,012 m, totaling six holes. It complied 1,561 samples, in which 500 samples has yielded equivalent to 100 ppb of gold. 68 fresh samples were gathered additionally from the SLP-09-02 core in order to attain the constant sampling. Quality control samples have shown 10% of the sampling.
