Triumph Gold Corp. (TSXV:TIG, OTC:TIGCF) President & Director Tony Barresi joined the Investing News Network at #PDAC2020 conference to discuss the progress his company has made exploring its properties in the Dawson Range, #Yukon. #gold
Barresi believes the action in the price of gold recently has created increased interest in the resource space, especially for those seeking a safe haven in an asset like gold. “It was good timing for us to be able to release some new results. We have a flagship property in Yukon, the Freegold Mountain property. We’ve been having some incredible success over the last three years with drilling that property. While we’ve been doing the drill program, we’ve been advancing a bunch of other pipeline projects as well. The property itself is district in scale, it’s 200 square kilometers, 34 kilometers from end to end. We’ve had some great results and that’s what we released today.”
On March 3rd Triumph Gold released results from rock sampling and trenching at one of their pipeline projects, the Irene-Goldstar epithermal gold-silver corridor, with samples grading up to 93.8 g/t gold and 1108 g/t silver. The mineralized corridor has a 3.7-kilometre-long strike-length, that has been defined with historical drilling over 450 meters at the top of Freegold Mountain, and over a similar length two kilometres away in a gold-rich placer creek at the bottom of the mountain. There, in 2017, “we drilled over a 450-meter section and got multi-gram gold over multiple meters in every hole,” said Barresi.
Until 2019 a two-kilometre-long area between the drill-tested areas, had not been sampled due to heavy vegetation and overburden. Then in 2019 “we went along the top of the mountain to the edge of what had previously been explored and dug trenches over an additional 600 meters. Again, we ended up with multi-gram gold over multiple meters in those trenches. We ended up with a sample that was 96 grams gold and over 1100 grams silver along with a whole bunch of other multi-gram gold samples” noted Barresi. Moving forward, Triumph Gold intends to follow up on the success of the 2018 and 2019 exploration seasons on the Freegold Mountain property.
“We’re looking at doing another season of very aggressive drilling, probably thousands of meters,” said Barresi. “We’re following up on the discoveries that we made in the Revenue-Nucleus area. Revenue and Nucleus are two pre-existing resources on our property, they amount to about 2 million gold equivalent ounces.”
Over the past few years the company has conducted extensive drilling within a six-kilometre-long area that surrounds the resources, discovering new high-grade, gold-rich porphyry copper-gold related mineralization.”
