@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.

  • 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).

Triumph intends to execute a $4 million exploration program on the Freegold Mountain property, as well as smaller reconnaissance mapping and sampling projects on Tad/Toro and Severance properties in Yukon and Andalusite Peak in northern British Columbia.

Exploration on the Freegold Mountain property will commence in late May and extend until early October.  The work will include approximately 13,000 m of diamond drilling, seven line km of trenching, geological mapping, prospecting and a soil geochemistry survey.

Drilling will be focused on four areas:

  1. Nucleus (4,000 m). The Nucleus deposit involves several superimposed deposit types and contains 1.3 million Ozs gold within 74.7 million tonnes in the indicated category (0.30 g/t AuEq1 cut-off).  2017 exploration drilling will comprise broad step outs that target areas prospective for extensions of one or more of the deposit types.
  2. Revenue and the adjacent Blue Sky Zone (5,000 m). Revenue is a porphyry style deposit that contains 1.0 million Ozs gold, 8.98 million Ozs Ag, and 241 million lbs copper within 80.8 million tonnes in the inferred category (0.5 g/t AuEq1 cut-off).  2017 drilling near Revenue will focus on the Blue Sky Zone, a 2.3 square km area to the east of Revenue, with coincident soil and chargeability anomalies that are adjacent to and along strike of some of the longest and best drill intersection within the main Revenue Zone (e.g. 16% Cu, 0.66 g/t Au over 196.02 m [RVD11-019 368.88 – 476.94m]).
  3. The newly discovered Generation Zone (2,000 m). The Generation zone is a porphyry copper gold target identified in 2016.  It consists of strongly altered granodiorite exposed over 80 meters that contains a high density of mineralized quartz +/- magnetite veins. The mineralized outcrops are centered approximately 150 meters above the modeled depth of a strong 2.9 X 1.3 km chargeability high.
  4. A soil and geophysical anomaly that extends 2 km along strike between the Nucleus and Revenue deposit areas (2,000 m).

Drilling at the Nucleus and Revenue deposit areas will constitute significant step outs, up to 1.5 km from the current resource areas, to test new exploration targets developed during a thorough data and drill core review conducted in 2016.

Exploration at the property’s third resource area, the Tinta polymetallic vein deposit, will include broadening of the existing soil geochemistry survey area with approximately 1,200 samples over 7 km2.  This will complement the ground magnetic and VLF-EM survey that was conducted in 2016, which defined several strong conductors that parallel the Tinta vein deposit and are coincident with Au, Ag, Pb, Bi in soil anomalies over the limited existing soil grid.  Once results are obtained, trenching will be conducted over coincident anomalies.

A number of less developed prospects on the Freegold Mountain property, including the Nitro, Castle, and Stoddart porphyry prospects and Goldy, Ridge, and Irene epithermal gold prospects, will be the subject of focused data, drill core, and field studies/reviews by Triumph’s senior geologists in order to evaluate exploration potential.

NI 43-101 Disclosure

  1. AuEq is based on metal prices of $1,250/oz for gold, US$22.00/oz for silver, US$2.90/lb for copper and US$10.00/lb for molybdenum. The AuEq calculations reflect gross metal content and do not apply any adjustment factors for difference in metallurgical recoveries of gold, copper, silver and molybdenum.
  2. Mineral resources do not demonstrate economic viability, and there is no certainty that these mineral resources will be converted into mineable reserves once economic considerations are applied.

Goldstrike “GSR”: New Gold Discovery Extends Yellow Giant Trend to 25km, Remains Open

Goldstrike “GSR” has discovered a new zone of gold mineralization in a newly staked extension to the Plateau South property which assayed 4.738 g/t gold and 6,852 parts per million arsenic from a rock grab sample taken from outcrop/subcrop.  The gold-mineralized sample of grey quartz was taken during expansion staking by Yukon prospector Tom Morgan, in a newly identified 2 km by 600m area with massive quartz veining and stockwork that remains open.  This showing further confirms the significant gold potential within a west-northwest to east-southeast corridor referred to as the Yellow Giant trend.  This trend extends for at least 25 km, is largely unexplored along its entire length and remains open.

“The Plateau area as a whole has many indications of a new emerging gold district,” said Goldstrike president Terrence King.  “The results from the 2011 exploration season far exceeded our expectations with nine new gold discoveries made including Plateau, Summit, Big One, Livingston and Lucky Strike, to name a few. Goldstrike looks forward to a busy 2012 as it works to exploit the full potential of the Plateau area, as well as its other eight stand-alone new gold projects.”
