#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.

  • 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 #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.

Triumph Gold LogoTriumph Gold Corp. TSXV$TIG $NFRGF announced that prospecting and step out drilling to the east and west of the Revenue diatreme have been rewarded with significant new discoveries including:

  1. High-grade gold-rich porphyry mineralization in multiple drill holes in the Blue Sky Zone (Figure 1, Table 1, Table 2), east of the Revenue diatreme, including identification of visible gold in RVD17-01, and 57m of 1.72 grams/tonne (g/t) AuEq* at 1.08 g/t gold and 0.285% copper in RVD17-13.
  2. A corridor of high-grade, gold-rich, porphyry style mineralization over a strike length of 450m (including RVD1-13, previous bullet point) that extends from the eastern edge of the Revenue diatreme northeast into the Blue Sky Zone. Mineralization is open to depth and to the northeast where it appears to increase in grade.
  3. Identification of a robust porphyry related hydrothermal system responsible for dense stockwork veining, phyllic and potassic alteration and copper-gold mineralization from surface to 603m depth in a single drill hole collared 1.4 km west of the Revenue diatreme in the Keirsten Zone.
  4. Discovery of a new gold showing (Happy Creek showing) on the far eastern side of the Revenue/Nucleus 5.5 X 2.0 km soil/geophysical anomaly, 400m east of any historical drilling and over 1 km east of the Revenue diatreme.  The showing is defined with surface grab samples that grade up to 5.77 g/t gold and a 236m drill intersection with a length*** weighted average gold grade of    0.238 g/t.

Triumph Gold completed 12,904m of diamond drilling in 35 holes during 2017.  Results from 17 holes totalling 7,632m have been released to date.  The remaining results will be released in the coming weeks.

 Motivation for Step Out Drilling

A primary objective of the 2017 drill program near Revenue was to demonstrate through systematic step outs that the Revenue diatreme is part of a larger porphyry system.  The idea was tested with drilling at the Blue Sky and Keirsten Zones which extend approximately 1 km to the east and west of the Revenue diatreme, respectively (Figure 1).  The motivation for the broad expansion of the exploration target at Revenue was identification of porphyry style high-grade copper-gold-silver and molybdenum mineralization that predates diatreme emplacement, in drill holes adjacent to the Revenue diatreme (noted below and Figure 1).

  • RVD11-019: 70.48m (179.25 – 249.73m) 1.489 g/t Au, 0.219% Cu
  • RVD11-022: 55.45m (86.75 – 142.20m) 0.418 g/t Au, 0.191% Cu
  • RVD11-028: 162.36m (84.79 – 247.15m) 0.446 g/t Au, 0.218% Cu, 0.085% Mo.

While the diatreme is recognized as an exploration target itself, the possibility that it is surrounded by a porphyry with significant gold and copper grades remained largely untested until the 2017 drill program.

Porphyry Mineralization in the Blue Sky Zone

The Blue Sky Zone encompasses a multi-element soil anomaly that extends up to 1.5 km east of the Revenue diatreme (Figure 1).  Relogging of core from RVD11-019, 022 and 028 in 2016 identified two stages of mineralization, including an early stage of classic porphyry related stockwork veining with potassic alteration with good gold-copper-molybdenum grades (see above). Step out drilling in 2017 was designed to test for eastward extensions of that mineralization within the Blue Sky Zone soil anomaly.  Three drill holes that tested the Blue Sky Zone intersected significant porphyry style mineralization (Figure 1, Table 1, 2).

  • RVD17-013 was collared 350 metres northeast of drill holes RVD11-019, 22 and 28, and intersected 119m of copper-molybdenum-gold-silver porphyry style mineralization grading 0.60% CuEq*, with a 57m thick high-grade, gold-rich core grading 1.09% CuEq* at 1.083 g/t gold and 0.285% copper (Table 2).
  • RVD17-01 was collared 100 metres east of drill holes RVD11-19, 22 and 28 and intersected 148.58m of copper-molybdenum-gold-silver porphyry style mineralization. Average grades within the intersection include 39.58m of 0.40% CuEq* and 94.38m of 0.48% CuEq* (Table 2).
  • RVD17-03 was drilled from the same setup as RVD17-13 but in the opposite direction. It is interpreted to have just skimmed the edge of the mineralized zone, intersecting multiple short domains of porphyry style mineralization and alteration including 18.60m of 0.423 g/t gold and 0.105% copper (Table 2, 4).

Together with results from RVD17-12 (PR#17-12, October 19, 2017: 245m of 0.37 CuEq* with a 58.65 metre high-grade core grading 0.971 g/t Au and 0.218% Cu), and historical drill holes RVD11-19, 22 and 28, a corridor of high-grade, gold-rich, porphyry style mineralization is now demonstrated over a strike length of 450m. The geometry of the mineralized zone is not well understood, but at minimum it is open at depth and to the northeast where, based on results from RVD17-13, it appears to be increasing in grade.

Porphyry Mineralization in the Keirsten Zone

The Keirsten Zone is a newly identified target area within the roughly 5.5 X 2.0 km soil and geophysical anomaly that encompasses the Revenue and Nucleus areas (Figure 1). The area was targeted for exploration in 2017 to test an intense chargeability and resistivity high at depth. KZ17-01 was drilled near the center of the chargeability high. The top 193 metres of bedrock are phyllic altered quartz-feldspar porphyry, with textures identical to the dykes that are responsible for high-grade gold mineralization at the Nucleus deposit 1 km to the west.  Beneath the quartz-feldspar-porphyry, to the end of hole at 603.50 metres, strongly veined and altered granite with complex overprinting propylitic, phyllic and potassic alteration assemblages was intersected. The granite is identical in texture and composition to granite in RVD17-12 and RVD17-13 up to 2.85 km to the east, and despite the lower grades of copper and gold in KZ17-01 (Table 4) compared to RVD17-12 and RVD17-13, the stockwork veining is more intense. It is of particular note in KZ17-01 that mineralization extends from the bedrock surface to the bottom of the hole at 603.50m depth.  This is indicative of a large mineralized system, yet the Keirsten Zone is virtually unexplored in every direction.  Encouraging results from surface samples collected from a new drill road within the zone are suggestive of nearby higher grade gold-rich domains (Table 3).

E446476 380609 6914511 0.461 2.1

Tony Barresi, Triumph’s VP Exploration, comments: “Geological results from drilling in the Keirsten Zone are encouraging. While the copper and gold grades in KZ17-01 are low, the continuity of mineralization and alteration and intensity of the veining are suggestive of a large and vigorous hydrothermal system that we are eager to continue to explore in 2018.”

Discovery of New Gold Showing – The Happy Creek Showing

A new zone of gold mineralization was discovered during reconnaissance prospecting and drilling within the Blue Sky Zone soil anomaly.  RVD17-09, which represents a 1.1 km eastward step out into the Blue Sky Zone (Figure 1), intersected a broad zone of gold mineralization associated with a swarm of aplite, pegmatite and lesser quartz-feldspar-porphyry dykes.  The upper 29 metres of core in RVD17-09 is strongly fractured and oxidized and grades 0.510 g/t gold; it is contained within a 269m intersection of 0.238 g/t gold, with ten longer than 1-meter samples grading over 1 g/t gold (Table 5).  Two surface grab samples of bull quartz collected from regolith returned gold grades of 5.77 and 3.76 g/t (Table 6).  The location of the Happy Creek showing, and the collar of RVD17-09 represents the farthest step out east of the Revenue diatreme to date.  The showing is 1.1 km east of the Revenue diatreme and 400 metres east of any other drill holes.  It is the only drill hole that has ever tested the Happy Creek drainage and mineralization is considered open in every direction.

Tony Barresi, Triumph’s VP Exploration, comments: “This new showing, which lies in the completely untested-by-drilling catchment of Happy Creek, a known placer creek, represents an exciting new exploration target.  The tenor of gold mineralization encountered so far is similar to what was seen in some of the early drill holes and surface samples at Nucleus.”

Summary of Revenue Geology

Porphyry mineralization at Revenue extends from at least the Keirsten Zone to the Blue Sky Zone, and was encountered in the farthest step out holes both east and west of the Revenue diatreme.  The mineralizing system is composed of a large porphyry, at least 2.85 km in strike length, with a mineralized diatreme in its center and the Nucleus gold deposit off its western flank. If gold mineralization encountered in the newly discovered Happy Creek showing is also porphyry related then the strike length of porphyry mineralization is increased to 3.6 km.  Within the diatreme and surrounding granite there are numerous drill intersections of good copper-gold, silver and molybdenum grades, however, now with the results of 2017 drilling, there is a demonstrated zone of high-grade, gold-rich, porphyry style mineralization that extends at least 450 meters from the eastern margin of the Revenue diatreme eastward into the Blue Sky Zone, where it appears to be increasing in grade, and remains open to the northeast and depth.

President’s Comment

Paul Reynolds, Triumph’s President & CEO, comments: “New drilling in 2017 has demonstrated a vast area of porphyry style mineralization extending at least 2.8 km from the Keirsten Zone to the Blue Sky Zone, both of which are new discoveries this year. In addition to defining a very large porphyry footprint we have also made numerous intersections of gold-rich high-grade porphyry mineralization (see this NR and NR17-12 dated October 19, 2017).  The elements of size and grade are beginning to stack in our favour and the possibility that a very large porphyry deposit underlies what had previously appeared to be separate showings, is becoming more and more compelling as we continue to explore.”

Methods and Qualified Person

Drill core samples ranged between 1 and 2m length and were cut at Triumph’s core logging facility on the Freegold Mountain Property (Revenue Camp; Figure 1).  The samples were analyzed by ALS Global of North Vancouver, British Columbia.  They were prepared for analysis according to ALS method PREP35: each sample was crushed to 70% passing 2mm and a 250g split was pulverized to better than 95% passing 106 micron mesh.  Gold was tested by fire assay with atomic absorption finish on a 30g nominal sample (method Au-AA23), and samples that tested over 10 g/t Au were retested using fire assay with a gravimetric finish (method Au-GRA21).  An additional 35 elements were tested by ICP-AES using an Aqua Regia digestion (method ME-ICP41), over limit samples for copper were retested using the same technique but with assay grade Aqua Regia digestion and a higher range of detection (method ME-OG46).  Quality assurance and control (QAQC) is maintained at the lab through rigorous use of internal standards, blanks and duplicates.  An additional QAQC program was administered by Triumph Gold: at minimum one in ten samples submitted by Triumph Gold was a blank or certified reference standard.  QAQC samples that returned unacceptable values triggered investigations into the results and reanalyses of the samples that were tested in the batch with the failed QAQC sample.

Revenue Nov2_2017_Landscape V3

@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.”

@TriumphGold $TIG $NFRGF 13,000 Metre #Drill #Program Underway at #Freegold #Mountain #Project, #Yukon

Triumph Gold TSXV.TIG commenced a 13,000 metre diamond drill program at its road accessible Freegold Mountain project in the Dawson Range, Yukon. The program will test several new drill targets identified during 2016 field exploration and data review.  The 2016 work focused on identifying geological controls on mineralization at the Revenue and Nucleus porphyry deposits on the Freegold Mountain Property.  These studies recognized an early stage of porphyry-style mineralization that was not targeted during past exploration.  The work defined three new exploration targets, one each at Revenue and Nucleus, and a newly identified porphyry target at the Generation Zone.

Triumph Gold Logo

  • Drilling is now underway at the Generation Zone, a newly recognized porphyry Cu-Au system. The identification of high density stockwork with multiple vein events, high temperature alteration, and associated copper and gold mineralization indicates that the Generation Zone represents a high-temperature core to a porphyry Cu-Au system.  Triumph plans 2,000 metres of drilling to test this zone.
  • A second drill will be mobilized within a week and begin drilling at the Revenue and adjacent Blue Sky Zones.  At Revenue, past exploration focused on the mineralized margin of an approximately 1 km long elliptical diatreme.
  • Other areas that will be drill tested include the Nucleus Zone (4,000m) and a soil and geophysical anomaly that extends 2 km along strike between the Nucleus and Revenue deposit areas (2,000 m).
