Revival Gold intersects 1.88 g/t Au over 115 meters and 1.74 g/t Au over 49 meters at Beartrack
TSX VENTURE: RVG
TORONTO, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQB: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the "Company"), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, announces additional results from its 2018 core drilling program at the former producing Beartrack gold project (“Beartrack”) located in Lemhi County, Idaho.
- 1.88 g/t Au over 115.0 meters1 from 358.1 meters to 473.1 meters in BT18-217D
- 1.74 g/t Au over 49.4 meters1 from 451.1 to 500.5 meters and 2.03 g/t Au over 17.6 meters from 531.3 meters to 548.9 meters in BT18-213D
1 Drilled width; true width estimates are presented in the table below.
“Today’s results continue to build on both the strike and depth extent of mineralization at Beartrack”, said Hugh Agro, President & CEO. “We are getting significant intercepts well outside the existing Beartrack mineral resource, including at Joss where Revival Gold has intercepted robust mineralization 700 meters south of the existing resource. Drilling continues with two rigs at Beartrack and one rig on the neighbouring Arnett project”.
Drill holes completed and released to date in 2018 (BT18-207D through BT18-214D) were targeted to expand the current open pit-constrained National Instrument 43-101 Beartrack mineral resource (“Mineral Resource”). Targets tested were below, and on strike from, both the North and South Pit areas and at Ward’s Gulch and Joss.
Results released today (BT18-213D and BT18-215 through 218D) further tested opportunities outside the Mineral Resource in the South Pit, Ward’s Gulch and Joss areas. Additionally, drilling tested the previously unexplored area between the South Pit and Joss which are located approximately 700 meters apart along strike.
BT18-217D successfully extended mineralization at depth in the South Pit area and BT18-213D builds on the good results obtained in BT18-211D in the Joss area. BT18-215D intercepted modest grades over good widths in a gap in the block model in the Ward’s Gulch area.
BT18-218D, which was drilled in the previously untested area between the South Pit and Joss, encountered encouraging grade over a good width, indicating that the structure is present and mineralized between the two areas. The area tested by hole BT18-218D covers over 300 meters of strike between holes BT12-176D, which intersected 30.5 meters from 299.3 meters to 329.9 meters averaging 3.0 g/t Au, and BT18-221D, which is currently underway.
Mineralization at Beartrack remains open to the south of Joss, north along strike between the South Pit and Ward’s Gulch area and into the North Pit.
To date in 2018, thirteen core holes have been completed at Beartrack for approximately 6,500 meters. Beyond the holes for which results have been released, additional holes have been completed in the South Pit area and south of Joss. Drilling is currently underway in the South Pit and Joss areas.
Summary assay results from holes released today are presented in the table below:
|BT18-216D||Joss||Abandoned at approximately 95 meters.|
1 True width estimates in the South Pit and Ward’s Gulch areas, as well as the area between the South Pit and Joss, are based on a vertically dipping mineral zone. True width in the Joss area is unknown (n/a). Drill holes typically steepen during drilling so the inclination of the drill hole at depth may not be the same as the inclination in the mineralized zone.
2 Recoveries for the intervals 506.0 meters to 507.5 meters, 508.9 meters to 509.6 meters and 510.5 meters to 511.2 meters were 44%, 0% and 50%. The interval with 0% recovery was included at zero grade.
3 Recoveries for the intervals 358.4 meters to 359.4 meters and 366.2 meters to 366.5 meters were 23% and 50% respectively. Recovery for the intervals 364.2 meters to 364.7 meters and 365.2 meters to 365.9 meters was 0%. The intervals with 0% recovery were included at zero grade.
Figure 1 illustrates a north-west facing long-section view at Beartrack from the north end of the North Pit Zone to the south end of the Joss Zone (approximately 4.5 kilometers) with the current Mineral Resource block model and the location of all eleven holes completed and released to-date this year. An additional four drill holes are noted on the figure for which results are pending.
In addition to drilling at Beartrack, four core holes have now been completed at Revival Gold’s neighbouring Arnett Project and a further three core holes are planned for this year. Initial results from the Arnett program are expected in early December.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of duplicates, blanks and certified reference standards into the sample stream. Check samples will be submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program. Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated. Samples are submitted to the ALS Minerals sample preparation facility in Elko, Nevada. Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Reno, Nevada and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals is an ISO 17025:2005 accredited lab.
Gold assays are determined by Fire Assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA25). For shallow holes targeting leachable mineralization, gold is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13). Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61 method.
