Metallis Resources commences 2019 drill program starting at Cole/Etta high-grade gold targets
TSX VENTURE: MTS
VANCOUVER, Sept. 6, 2019 /CNW/ - Metallis Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTS; OTCQB: MTLFF) (the "Company" or "Metallis") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 4,000 meter Phase 1 drill program at its 100%-owned Kirkham Property in northwest British Columbia's prolific Eskay Camp.
High-grade gold targets are the initial focus of Phase 1 drilling, following up on a discovery late last season when drilling intersected 137 g/t gold (Au) over 0.6 meters within 7.7 meters grading 11.2 g/t Au starting just 57.3 meters downhole at the Cole target (KH-18-19, refer to Nov. 29, 2018 news release).
Extensive mapping, VLF surveys, trenching, rock and soil sampling this summer, along with structural modeling at the adjoining Cole and Etta targets, have outlined a strongly altered 1,000 meter long by 300 meter wide zone of northeast oriented sub-parallel faults that appear to control the high-grade gold-bearing quartz sulphide veins. The zone is open for further expansion. (Click Here to View Map).
Fiore Aliperti, Metallis President and CEO commented: "From high-grade gold to nickel sulphide to gold-copper porphyry, the 106 sq. km Kirkham Property has advanced remarkably over the past two years and features strong potential to host multiple deposit types. We are vigorously testing exciting target areas covering each of those deposit types and we look forward to providing steady news flow with progress updates and results."
The Company also announces the extension of its investor relations contract with Nicosia Capital Corp. expiring February 1, 2020. All terms and conditions remain the same.
