Revival Gold Intersects 2.35 g/t Au over 70 meters including 4.55 g/t Au over 21 meters at Beartrack
TSX VENTURE: RVG
TORONTO, July 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQB: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the "Company"), a growth-focused gold exploration and development company, announces results from the first three holes of it’s planned 2019 5,000-meter core drilling program at the former producing Beartrack Gold Project (“Beartrack”) and the adjacent Arnett Gold Project (“Arnett”) located in Lemhi County, Idaho.
- 3.44 g/t Au over 13.8 meters1 including 5.04 g/t Au over 3.0 meters1 in BT19-223D
- 2.35 g/t Au over 70.3 meters1 including 4.55 g/t Au over 21.0 meters1 in BT19-224D
- 1.70 g/t Au over 66.3 meters1 including 4.24 g/t Au over 4.4 meters1 in BT19-225D
1 Drilled width; true width estimates are presented in the table below.
“Results from this year’s limited drilling in the Joss area at Beartrack verifies the presence and expands the scale of higher-grade mineralization in this location,” said Hugh Agro, President & CEO. “Revival Gold’s focus to-date has been on near-surface mineralization but the presence of higher-grade intercepts over 600 meters of strike within the Panther Creek Fault at Joss suggests underground potential as well.”
Revival Gold initiated it’s 2019 core drilling program at Beartrack with one rig in late May and added a second rig at Arnett in early June. Drilling this year is intended to continue to build on the scale of the known gold system at Beartrack and to advance toward a preliminary resource estimate of leachable gold material at Arnett. An updated resource estimate for Beartrack-Arnett is expected in the first quarter of 2020.
The three drill holes released today (BT19-223D, BT19-224D and BT19-225D) targeted mineralization in the Joss area at Beartrack. All three drill holes intersected good grades and confirmed the extension of gold mineralization at depth. Mineralization in the Joss area is not included in the current NI 43-101 Beartrack mineral resource estimate (“Mineral Resource”).
Summary assay results from drill holes released today are presented in the table below:
|From (m)||To (m)||Drilled Width (m)||Est. True Width1
|Fire Assay Gold Grade (g/t)|
|1||True width estimates based on a vertically dipping mineral zone. 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||Recovery for the interval 353.1 meters to 353.2 meters was 33%.|
|3||Recovery for the interval 286.2 meters to 287.1 meters was 33%.|
Figure 1 illustrates a plan view of the footprint of the current Mineral Resource with the location of holes drilled in 2018 and 2019, subsequent to completion of the Mineral Resource.
No further drilling is planned for Beartrack in 2019 as both rigs are currently at Arnett. Drilling will continue at Arnett until the Fall with all results expected to be released over the course of the next two quarters.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of duplicates, blanks and certified reference materials 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.
Sample preparation for Beartrack consists of crushing the sample to 70% less than 2mm and pulverizing 250 grams to better than 85% passing 75 microns (PREP-31) while sample preparation for Arnett consists of crushing the sample to 70% less than 2mm and pulverizing 1,000 grams to better than 85% passing 75 microns (PREP-31B). Gold assays are determined by Fire Assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24). 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.
