Serengeti Resources Outlines Exceptional Drill Target at Croy-Bloom Property, North-Central British Columbia
TSX VENTURE: SIR
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) ("Serengeti" or "the Company") reports that geophysical surveys at the 100% owned Croy-Bloom property have resulted in the discovery of a strong Induced-Polarization (IP) target. A total of 11.5 line-kilometres of IP were completed over the Croy-Bloom property in 2018. Croy-Bloom lies immediately east and south of Centerra Gold’s Kliyul Gold Copper property and is road accessible, 85 kilometres southeast of the Kemess Mine.
The 2018 IP program, the first such survey at Soup Ridge, resulted in the discovery of a large chargeability and coincident resistivity anomaly beneath where shallow historical drilling completed by Vital Pacific in 1997 intersected several mineralized intercepts, including 47 metres grading 0.27 g/t gold and 0.61% copper in VP-97-02. Relogging of VP-97-01 by Serengeti Resources in 2014 discovered a previously unsampled diorite porphyry hosting disseminated chalcopyrite grading 3.1 g/t gold and 0.97% copper. Additionally, soil geochemical values from extensive prior sampling outline a very strong copper-gold geochemical anomaly along the entirety of Soup Ridge. Below the geochemical anomaly and depth extent of historical drilling lies a strong chargeability (>15 mV/V) and coincident resistivity (> 10,000 ohm-m) target starting approximately 250 metres below surface extending to depth and measuring roughly 500 metres in width.

Croy-Bloom is host to numerous high-grade mineral occurrences including the Croy Vein located 2.5 kilometres east southeast of the new target area measuring 106 x 0.84 metres with prior samples grading 15.7 g/t gold and 10.5% copper. The Kli Cu-Ag Skarn zone is also notable and yields encouraging grab sample results including 0.93% copper and 3.9 g/t silver two kilometres south of the 2018 Soup Ridge target.
David W Moore, President & CEO of Serengeti Resources stated, “The new IP geophysical data coupled with a strong geochemical target and respectable historical drill results identifies a multi-parameter gold-copper drill target at Soup Ridge, and when combined with the numerous other mineralized occurrences on the property, demonstrates that Croy-Bloom is an outstanding property with high potential for discovery of a porphyry system.”
