Pretium Resources Confirms Continuity of High-Grade Gold Mineralization at Brucejack project

Pretium Resources (Pretivm) has announced that the company has validated the continuity and projection of high-grade mineralization present in the Valley of the Kings, through the drilling results obtained from the company’s Brucejack project located in North British Columbia. The company encountered 1,855 g/t gold over 0.54 m in hole SU-316 and 1,590 g/t gold over 0.59 m in hole SU-325.

The company’s formerly unreported high-grade intercept obtained from hole SU-316 specifically cut 566 m down-hole in the projected inferred mineral resource area, and around 264 m down-hole from the early holes SU-316, including 9,110 g/t gold over 0.5 m. Currently, Pretivm has announced the assays for hole SU-316.

The high-grade intercept encountered from the hole SU-325 was specifically collared in the Valley of the Kings’ east region that is near the holes SU-230 and SU-237. The hole SU-325 returned 169.1 g/t gold over 9.13 m. The company drilled the step-out holes SU-312 and SU-321 at the Valley of the Kings’ east border, and has validated that the high-grade mineralization is exposed down plunge towards the eastern area.

The company intersected 64.3 g/t gold over 5.7 m in hole SU-322. This hole is 30 m up dip from the high-grade intercept in hole SU-115, including 18,755 g/t gold over 0.6 m. Pretivm encountered 27.2 g/t gold over 20.57 m in hole SU-314, which has shown the addition potential towards the West Zone mineralization at depth.
