Harvest Gold, a mineral exploration company, has announced that the company has completed the diamond drill core and is currently undergoing sampling program at the CUD property. This property lies 8 km towards the eastern part of the operating gold mine of San Gold in Manitoba.
The company’s management has announced the extension of the primary drilling program, depending on geological inspections from the drill core. Quartz veins together with dispersed specks and mineralized pyrite in sericitized rhyolite that was located in a high strain deformation zone were included in the program. This accelerated a third hole drilling on the IP target areas.
Harvest Gold drilled 418 m, totaling three holes, at the CUD property. The company had already planned to drill two holes at the property. The third hole was specifically designed for intercepting the IP target, located around 100 m towards the western part of hole CUD-12-002. The occurrence of mineralized pyrite in an altered rhyolitic tuff influenced the company to deepen the second drill hole. The strong IP anomalies that were discovered during the fall survey were explained by mineralized sulphide intervals in quartz veins and in nearby sericitization and silicification alteration zones. The core will be tested by assays for the presence of gold and associated metals.
Abitibi Geophysics conducted IP surveys and found resistivity and chargeability anomalies, which further outlined the drill targets. The samples will be assayed by TSL Laboratories.
