Metallic Minerals Announces 2018 Exploration Program at Keno Silver Project in the Yukon Territory
TSX VENTURE: MMG
- Resource Delineation-Stage Targets – A top priority for 2018 will be to complete step out drilling on the three identified resource delineation targets at Caribou, Homestake and the recently acquired Formo target to determine the potential scale of the mineralized systems. The well-mineralized structures at each of these targets have been defined by trenching, channel sampling and shallow drilling that is open at depth and along strike, allowing for further expansion and the potential to define new silver resources;
- Advanced Surface Targets – Our second priority will be the first phase drill testing of up to six advanced surface targets, which have returned high-grade values from surface sampling - Gold Hill, Bounty, Duncan, Silver Basin, Vanguard and Silver Queen. Drilling on these targets will be designed to test vertically under the known surface mineralization to demonstrate the potential of these targets to move to a resource delineation stage; and
- Earlier Stage Targets – The Company has prioritized 20 earlier stage targets in the less explored parts of the property that show potential to host significant high-grade Keno-type silver mineralization along recognized mineral trends. These targets will see follow-up work including drone-based geophysics, soil sampling, detailed stratigraphic mapping and trenching with the objective to advance the most prospective areas to a first phase drill testing stage.
