Metals Creek Resources has released further assays of the ongoing diamond drilling program at the Ogden gold project, located in Ontario.
The assay results are obtained from two diamond drill holes, which targeted the shallow gold mineralization located at the Thomas Ogden Zone (TOZ). The company intersected two mineralized zones in the hole TOG-12-03, wherein the upper zone returned 1.14 g/t gold over 27.50 m and the lower zone returned 5.73 g/t gold over 23.3 m. The zone conglomerates with connected arsenopyrite, pyrite, visible gold and strong silicification, and is defined as strongly altered porphyry. The company drilled this hole 20 m below the hole TOG-11-011, returning 1.94 g/t gold over 94.0m.
Two mineralized zones were intersected in the second hole, TOG 12-04, wherein the upper zone yielded 2.02 g/t gold over 14.90 m and the lower zone returned 8.26 g/t gold over 3.00 m. The company continues drilling at the property and is waiting for the assay results from further three holes drilled at the Thomas Ogden Zone.
The company’s management is supported highly through its continuous success in outlining the down plunge expansion and geometry of mineralized gold in the TOZ.
The Ogden project encloses 8 km of the Porcupine-Destor Break’s strike between the West Timmins development project of Lake Shore Gold and Dome Mine Complex of Goldcorp. The company sent all split core samples to Ontario-based Accurassay.
