Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 14, 2020) - Bayhorse Silver Inc. (TSXV: BHS) (the "Company" or "Bayhorse") is pleased with the initial results of the recent due diligence sampling at the Harrison Gold Project, Harrison, BC.
The Company is now conducting a larger metallurgical sampling program from the RN Zone under the supervision of John Jewitt, P.Eng., Dr. Stewart Jackson, P.Geol, and Carl Von Einsiedel, P.Geol. The samples will be submitted to Met-Solve Metallurgical Labs, Langley, BC for gravity recovery tests.
The Harrison gold recovery work is being conducted in parallel with the ongoing production of silver rich concentrate at the Bayhorse Silver Mine flotation facility, Idaho, USA.
The objectives of the proposed metallurgical work will be to confirm the gravity recoverable gold (GRG) test results reported by Bear Mountain from the RN Zone, where the RN composite responded well to gravity concentration with a recovery of 90.7% with a final concentrate grade of 1,088 g/t Au from a calculated head grade of 43.2 g/t Au. (BMGM, 2020).
Mineralization at Harrison consists of free milling gold, (0.2 to 2.0 mm sized grains) within quartz veins ranging from less than a cm to several tens of cm in width. The testing will provide the information required to design a pilot plant that could be used to process the mineralized rock that will be obtained from the permitted bulk sampling program and off-site processing program currently being planned for the historic RN mine workings.
The first Harrison diamond drill program is anticipated to commence the first week of November and will be targeting the reported historic drill holes to confirm their intersections and gold grades.
The Company's Independent Geological Consultant, Dr. G.E. Ray, P. Geol., who has authored five geological papers on gold mineralization in the Harrison Gold District will be conducting independent due diligence as part of the sampling program.
The recent due diligence sampling, as reported in the Company's news release BHS2020-22, was conducted by Bayhorse senior consulting geologist, Dr. Clay Conway. Nine quartz vein chip samples were taken from the Jenner Adit where the highest grade sampled was 414.2 g/t (12.11 opt) Au. Full results are tabulated below.
