Evolving Gold has declared that drilling at the Carlin-Humboldt project has intercepted high-grade gold. The company encountered 9.85 g/t gold over 17.2 m in diamond wedge hole CAR-016.1.1. This hole interval also includes 23.46 g/t gold over 4.7 m and 37.00 g/t gold over 1.2 m, 16.67 g/t gold over 1.8 m, 6.26 g/t gold over 6.1 m and 4.06 g/t gold over 9.1 m.
Wedge core hole CAR-016.1.1 was drilled from hole CAR-016.1. This hole reported high-grade intervals, which are situated about 18 m towards the northern part of identical mineralization intercepted in CAR-016.1. Depth to the mineralization surface is nearly similar to holes CAR-016.1 and CAR-010, which are approximately 70 m towards the southwestern part of CAR016.1.1. The high-grade gold zone indicated through this relationship is exposed towards the eastern, northern and southeastern part.
Core hole CAR-019 focused on the expansions of the high-grade mineralization containing gold and intercepted highly altered, thick igneous and sedimentary rock zones, which include locally high values of arsenic and lamprophyre. This hole seems to penetrate a low-grade section of this high-grade gold system, which returned anomalous gold mineralization.
The company is now drilling a core hole CAR-020, which is specifically designed to examine expansions of high-grade intervals of gold in hole CAR-002. It has collared hole CAR-020 40 m towards the northwest part of hole CAR-002. The geological series was consistent with CAR-002 as anticipated.
These encouraging results strongly impact drill targeting. The company is arranging for wedges from CAR-019 and CAR-016 in order to continue testing of mineralization that extends around the mineralized hole area from CAR-010 to CAR-016 and towards east, north and southeast.
