Teuton Resources: Drilling Begins on Del Norte Property in the Golden Triangle - New Mineralized Zones Found on Del Norte West, Fiji
TSX VENTURE: TUO
Vancouver, Canada - TheNewswire - August 19, 2019 - Teuton Resources Corp. ("Teuton" or "the Company") (TSXV:TUO) (OTC:TEUTF) (Frankfurt:TUC) is pleased to announce that the crew for the 2019 Del Norte drill program has arrived and that drilling is expected to commence within two days. The Del Norte property is situated 30 km east of Stewart within the Golden Triangle region of north-western British Columbia.
The principal target of the 2019 program is the "A-2" anomaly identified by Geotech during a comprehensive ZTEM survey flown in 2018 (cf: http://teuton.com/Fig1DNTargets). The Geotech anomaly overlies a previous large and intense EM anomaly defined by an earlier 2005 VTEM survey. Streams draining the area of the anomaly flow southerly into Nelson Creek, where Cominco carried out a placer gold operation in the 1930's. Two structures, the LG vein and the K zone, lie close to the anomaly but not within it. Both have returned high gold and silver values in previous drilling (cf. http://teuton.com/Fig2DNDrilling).
Geotech's geophysicists stated: "This target lies at the contact volcanics/sediments of the Hazelton group and it is stretching in the NS direction over a distance of >3 km. It has an estimated resistivity of < 30 ohm-m at a depth of 300m, coincides with a strong Aerotem conductor and occurs within a zone of complex structural pattern. It is affected by a system of north-west striking faults."
Profiles provided by Geotech, both along the axis of the target in the vicinity of the Aerotem conductor and across it, suggest that the source begins at a depth 200m below surface in the area targeted by the 2019 drilling (cf. http://teuton.com/Fig3-A2Slice).
Del Norte West Gossans
A reconnaissance of areas of glacial meltback has identified two previously unknown gossans in a locale now referred to as "Del Norte West" (Photographs of the zones: http://teuton.com/Fig4Gossan1DNW and http://teuton.com/Fig5Gossan2DNW). Prospecting of a small portion of both gossanous zones has identified widespread pyrite mineralization with local concentrations of chalcopyrite and sphalerite in a silicified hostrock (cf http://teuton.com/Fig6SamplingDNW). It is possible that both gossans are connected beneath an intervening icefield. Samples have been sent for assay and work is continuing in an effort to cover as much of the gossanous region as possible.
A helicopter survey of the northern part of the Fiji property has disclosed a mineralized structure which can be followed uphill for at least 300m before disappearing under a blanket of snow and ice (http://teuton.com/fijivideo). This new zone appears to have been very recently exposed by retreating icefields. Samples have been taken and sent for assay. Teuton owns the Fiji property jointly with Silver Grail Resources. The property abuts to the west and northwest of Auryn's Homestake gold-silver property.
Permitting for the Fiji project is in place. If results of the sampling are positive and weather conditions allow, the property will be drilled this year.
Teuton owns interests in more than thirty properties in the prolific "Golden Triangle" area of northwestern British Columbia and was one of the first companies to adopt what has since become known as the "prospect generator" model. Eight of these properties are currently under option to third parties. Properties presently under option (including properties where optionees have already earned their interest) have generated cash proceeds of a little under $2.4 million since 2015, not including the value of shares received from the optioning companies.
Teuton was the original staker of the Treaty Creek property assembling the core land position in 1985. It presently holds a 20% carried interest in Treaty Creek (carried until such time as a production decision is made) as well as a 0.98% NSR in the claims covering the Goldstorm zone. A 0.49% NSR is owned in the peripheral claims.
