#PistolBayMining $PST Plans 2018 #Drilling #Program in Confederation Lake

Pistol Bay (TSX.V-PST) announced that it plans to commence a 2018 drilling program on it’s Confederation Lake greenstone belt in the very near future.

Charles Desjardins, President and CEO of Pistol Bay, commented, “After the company’s very encouraging VTEM plus survey in 2017, we are excited to commence the next stage of development of Confederation Lake volcanic massive sulphide belt.”

Three drill holes of at least 500 metres each are planned to further test the Arrow Zone, and to retrieve core for preliminary metallurgical testing.  The Arrow Zone was the subject of a 43-101 report in 2017 that presented an inferred mineral resource of 2,100,000 tonnes grading 5.78% zinc, 0.72% copper, 0.60 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 19.5 g/t silver. (8.42% zinc eq.)

Additionally, the Company plans to survey the older drill holes on the Arrow Zone, which were drilled by Noranda in 1997 and 1998, using a gyro or similar method, to accurately determine hole deviation.  Collars of all holes on the Arrow zone will be surveyed by differential GPS to determine their precise location and the initial azimuth.  These new and precise measurements will allow more precise positioning of drill intercepts and will ultimately lead to a higher level of confidence in the mineral resource.

Approximately 10 diamond drill holes totaling approximately 2,000 metres will test the Fredart “A” zone (also referred to as the Copperlode “A” zone).  A historical resource estimate made in 1971 for the Fredart “A” zone, based on diamond drilling in the 1960s, was 386,000 tonnes grading 1.56% copper and 33.6 g/t silver, or alternatively 219,500 tonnes at 1.95% copper and 41.8 g/t silver.  Neither of these estimates conforms to any class of mineral resource or mineral reserve defined by the 2014 CIM guidelines.

Although the first five holes in 1965 were assayed for gold with results up to 1.2 g/t Au, the remaining 76 holes were not assayed for gold.  Four of the highest grade and widest drill intercepts on the Fredart “A” zone were:

DDH 65-03: 1.83 metres @ 5.24% Cu and 170.45 g/t Ag

DDH 66-11: 6.61 metres @ 3.37% Cu and 159.52 g/t Ag

DDH 66-15: 17.53 metres @ 2.54% Cu and 45.72 g/t Ag

DDH 66-18: 46.21 metres @ 1.18% Cu and 51.11 g/t Ag

Intersection lengths are core lengths; true widths are not known.  Sampling, assaying, security and QC protocols are unknown.

#TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $TIGCF #Discovery of Two New #Gold Showings on 100% Owned Andalusite Peak #Property, #BritishColumbia

Triumph Gold reports results of prospecting and geological mapping on the Andalusite Peak property. Highlights of exploration include:

  • Discovery of two new gold-silver-copper occurrences, the Julep and the Gentleman vein:
      • The Julep showing consists of a feldspar porphyritic mafic intrusion with disseminated clots and veins of tetrahedrite, chalcocite and secondary malachite and azurite.  It was grab sampled in two locations 21 metres apart.  Sample E446453 graded 1.18 grams/tonne (g/t) Au, 11.2 g/t Ag and 1.135% Cu, sample E446454 graded 21.1 g/t Ag and 2.72% Cu. The size and geometry of the showing was not fully mapped, and it remains open.
      • The Gentleman vein consists of an up to 20 cm thick chalcopyrite rich quartz-carbonate-magnetite-sulfide vein, with strongly altered and mineralized selvages.  The vein was grab sampled in two locations 17 metres apart: Sample I044403 graded 1.84 g/t Au, 17.3 g/t Ag and 2.25% Cu, Sample E446455 graded 0.459 g/t Au, 2.4 g/t Ag and 0.163% Cu.  The vein was identified where it crosses a mountain-top saddle.  It remains open to the northwest and southeast.
  • Alteration mapping, aided by the collection and analysis of 67 near-infrared reflectance (TerraSpec) samples, verified that the property has been affected by intense phyllic to advanced argillic alteration over an approximately 2 X 2 km area, constituting one of the largest and most intense alteration zones in northern British Columbia.

#TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $TIGCF Reports #Results from #Drilling at Nucleus #Gold #Silver #Copper #Deposit #Yukon

  • Results from 4,685 metres of diamond drilling in sixteen holes targeting the Nucleus Au-Ag-Cu deposit area:
  • Three high-grade gold intersections:
  • 5 g/t Au over 1.5 metres in N17-02 (174.50 – 176.00m).
  • 35 g/t Au and 7.3 g/t Ag over 1.44 metres in N17-07 (132.46 – 133.90m)
  • 2 g/t Au over 1.1 metres in N17-12 (111.00 – 112.10m)
  • Six infill drill holes tested underexplored portions of the Nucleus resource area where there are significant gaps in the current resource block-model. Each intersected zones of gold mineralization with grades that exceed the deposit average (0.544 g/t Au at a 0.3 g/t AuEq* cutoff), including:
    • 9 meters of 1.545 g/t Au in N17-02 (173.1 – 195.00m)
    • 14 meters of 0.799 g/t Au and 0.137% Cu in N17-03 (47.86 – 90.00m)
    • 14 meters of 2.696 g/t Au in N17-07 (126.86 – 138.00m)
    • 73 meters of 1.797 g/t Au in N17-12 (99.00 – 116.73m)
    • 00 metres of 0.701 g/t Au also in N17-12 (212.00 – 242.00m)
  • Five step-out drill holes that tested for extensions of Nucleus mineralization to the north, south and east of the current resource area intersected zones of gold mineralization that exceed the 0.3 g/t AuEq* cutoff grade of the deposit including:
    • 00 metres of 1.005 g/t Au in N17-01 (165.00-177.00m)
    • 20 metres of 0.485 g/t Au and 0.185% Cu in N17-06A (66.80 – 96.00m)
  • N17-10, which tested a previously undrilled 1.0 X 0.7 kilometre chargeability anomaly that lies north of the current Nucleus resource, bottomed in mineralization:
    • 53 metres of 0.513 g/t Au (453.00 – 474.53m) including 9.53 metres of 1.089 g/t Au (465.00 – 474.53m).
  • Paul Reynolds, Triumph Gold Corp.’s President and CEO, comments: “Drilling at Nucleus in 2017 established the potential for increasing the size and grade of the Nucleus resource through infill and step out drilling. Every hole that was drilled within the resource shell intersected broad zones of gold mineralization with grades that exceed the deposit average. In addition, six new drill holes in the underexplored southern portion of the resource demonstrated remarkable continuity of previously poorly understood gold-bearing structures, which we now feel confident and excited, to drill in broad step outs beyond the current resource shell.”

#TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $TIGCF Definition of a 1.8 x 0.75 km Soil #Anomaly along #Strike of the #Tinta Au-Ag #Deposit and #Discovery of #Gold Bearing #Quartz #Veins in Six #Trenches Over 700 metres #Strike Length within the #Anomaly

Summary of November 20, 2017 Press Release for @TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $TIGCF  

  • Recent soil sampling defined a 1.8 x 0.75 km multi-element (Au, Cu, Pb, Zn, As, Bi, Sb) soil anomaly.

Highlights of exploration at Tinta include:

  • A 1.8-km-long multi-element soil anomaly, open to the northwest, along strike of the Tinta Au-Ag deposit has been defined.
  • The anomaly has a higher concentration of samples with elevated pathfinder elements (As, Sb, Bi) than the area surrounding the Tinta vein deposit and a similar concentration of samples with elevated gold, but over an area twice the size.
  • Within the 1.8-km-long soil anomaly, a 700-metre-long section was tested with seven trenches. Six exposed multiple clay-altered or silicified zones with mineralized quartz-chalcedony-carbonate-sulphide vein networks.
  • The Tinta Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn deposit has an inferred resource of 2.16 million tonnes grading 1.89 g/t Au, 54.9 g/t Ag, 0.27% Cu, 0.99% Pb and 1.41% Zn (December 15, 2014). Follow-up exploration in 2017 included:
  • an expanded soil geochemistry grid with 993 samples collected over 8 sq. km, and
  • 560 metres of excavator trenching within the coincident anomalies defined by the 2016 survey.
    • The 2017 soil grid expanded the length of the 2016 soil anomaly from 900 to 1,800 metres. In addition, the 2017 soil survey covered the area around the Tinta vein to provide a better basis for comparison between geochemistry of soils in the new anomaly and soils surrounding the existing deposit.

Discussion of Results:

Results from the 2016 and 2017 soil sampling survey show a strong multi-element anomaly along strike of the Tinta vein deposit, with an approximately 500 metre gap between the vein and the newly defined 1.8-km-long anomaly.  The geological model of a pinching and swelling vein structure may adequately explain the absence and then re-occurrence of the soil anomaly along strike of the Tinta vein.  The new soil anomaly covers twice the area of the one defined around the Tinta vein.

Trenching within the soil anomaly tested less than half of the total length of the anomaly, and uncovered altered, veined and mineralized rock in six of seven trenches.

  • Paul Reynolds, Triumph Gold Corp.’s President and CEO comments: “The Tinta Au-Ag deposit is one of Triumph Gold’s higher grade and underexplored resources. Identifying an along-strike soil anomaly that is twice the size of the anomaly surrounding the current resource area is very exciting.  If it is an extension of the Tinta vein system, it could dramatically affect the size of the resource.  We look forward to testing the new anomaly with more trenching and follow-up drilling in 2018 and exploring to the northwest where the anomaly remains open.”

#TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $TIGCF #Discovery of High-Grade #Gold in Least-Explored Portion of the Revenue #Deposit Including a 7-metre Interval Grading 15.0 g/t #Gold

Summary of November 15, 2017 Press Release for #TriumphGoldCorp:

Triumph Gold Announces Discovery of High-Grade Gold in Least-Explored Portion of the Revenue Deposit Including a 7-metre Interval Grading 15.0 grams/tonne Gold

  • Exploration drilling in an underexplored portion of the Revenue soil anomaly intersected high-grade gold mineralization in granite south of the Revenue diatreme.
    • Visible gold over a 5-metre interval (129 – 134 m).
    • Contained within a 7-metre interval (129 – 136 m) of gold-silver-copper mineralization with a length*** weighted grade of 15.0 grams/tonne (g/t) gold (see below).
    • Including a 1-metre interval (129 – 130 m), re-assayed three times, grading between 45.0 and 81.3 g/t gold.
    • The 1.2 X 0.5 km soil anomaly between Whirlwind Pup and Revenue Creek has seen less drilling that any other area near the Revenue diatreme. Limited historical exploration documented significant concentrations of gold in the Klaus and Guder zones, including:
      • Trench samples in the Klaus Zone grading up to 32.98 g/t Au over 20 cm; 14.3 g/t over 1 m, and 3.67 g/t over 1 m;
      • Trench samples in the Guder Zone grading up to 20.24 g/t Au over 6.1m.
    • Other Notable Intersections in RVD17-14
      • In addition to the high-grade gold intersection in RVD17-14 there were also two other notable mineralized intervals:
  • 79 m of 0.46 g/t AuEq in rocks and polyphase porphyry veining and potassic alteration at the contract between granite country rock and the Revenue diatreme.
  • 6 m of 0.73 g/t AuEq in sulfide-matrix hydrothermal breccia within the Revenue diatreme.
  • Paul Reynolds, Triumph Gold’s President and CEO comments “We have only just begun to explore this highly prospective area, which hasn’t been drilled since 1984, and with our very first hole we intersected the highest-grade gold ever found at Revenue. The discovery of coarse gold in RVD17-14 is especially compelling because of its location in the headwaters of Revenue Creek, one of the Dawson Range’s most renowned placer creeks.

@TriumphGoldCorp TSXV$TIG $NFRGF Announces Multiple Diamond Drill Hole Intersections of Au-Cu Mineralization on Eastern Margin of The Revenue Diatreme including 58.65m of 1.48 g/t #Gold Equivalent* @ 0.971 g/t Au & 0.22% Cu

Highlights of Press Release:   Triumph Gold Logo

  • Triumph announces that diamond drilling along the relatively underexplored eastern margin of the Revenue diatreme has been rewarded with multiple intersections of copper, gold, silver +/- molybdenum mineralization. Recent geological reviews of mineralization in the Revenue area, aided by development of a 3D geological model of the 1,300 X 400 metre elliptical Revenue diatreme, targeted the eastern portion of the diatreme as most prospective for gold and copper mineralization.  The 2017 exploration program at Revenue was designed to test the eastern area with five drill holes totaling 2,032 metres.
  • Geological highlights of the drill program include:
    • Identification of an oxidized breccia/deep-weathering zone with significant gold from the bedrock surface to 68m depth (RVD17-10; 68m @ 0.64 g/t Au). This intersection is in an area that has not been explored for near surface mineralization, in part due to absence of a gold in soil anomaly, which is now attributed to thick overburden.  Samples from this interval are being sent for metallurgical testing to determine if gold can be extracted via cyanide leach.
    • In RVD17-12, a broad intersection (approximately 180 metres long) of porphyry style stockwork veining with potassic and phyllic alteration, adjacent to, and beneath the surface expression of, the Revenue diatreme.
    • The intersection of a high-grade breccia zone in RVD17-12 (58.65m @1.48 g/t Au eq.), which is interpreted to be a continuation of hydrothermal breccias encountered in RVD11-22 and RVD11-28, defining at least 120 meters strike-length of high grade mineralization that is open at depth and contained within a broad lower grade envelope.
    • At least three types of superimposed mineralization, including:
    • Early porphyry style mineralization;
    • Late hydrothermal breccias and replacement style mineralization; and
    • Near surface enrichment of gold.
  • Paul Reynolds, Triumph Gold’s President and CEO, states: “We are very encouraged by these results. Each of the styles of mineralization encountered at Revenue could be a stand-alone target, but along the eastern margin of the Revenue diatreme, where we have discovered that they are superimposed, there is an exceptional opportunity to explore for a high-grade, near-surface Au-Cu resource.”
