Vancouver, B.C., September 8, 2021 – Triumph Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TIG | OTCMKTS: TIGCF) (“Triumph Gold” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of a 19 hole, 6,615 metre diamond drilling program (“the Program”) focused on the Nucleus and Revenue areas of the Freegold Mountain Project (“the Project”) located in Yukon, Canada (Figure 1). All of the drill core has been cut, sampled, and submitted to ALS Global for analysis. Final assay results are expected to return in regular batches throughout September and October.
Initial highlights of the Program include:
- Confirmation of two styles of overlapping mineralization forming the Nucleus gold-silver-copper deposit with flat-lying skarn mineralization cut by epithermal mineralization associated with steeply-dipping fault zones within schists and gneiss of Yukon Tanana Terrane (“YTT”) and felsic intrusive rocks (Photos 1 and 2).
- Intersection of sulphide-replacement and epithermal mineralization proximal to the regional South Big Creek Fault within YTT and felsic intrusive rocks in step-out drilling south of the Nucleus gold-silver-copper Deposit (Photo 3). New mineralization was also intersected southeast of the Nucleus resource area (Photo 4).
- Expansion of porphyry-related and epithermal mineralization at the WAu and Blue Sky Zones hosted in the Revenue gold-silver-copper-molybdenum-tungsten Deposit (Photo 5). Drilling also expanded a zone of porphyry-style mineralization proximal to the southern contact of the WAu Zone. (Photo 6).
Additional exploration activities have advanced mineral prospects on the Freegold Mountain Project outside of the Nucleus and Revenue Deposit areas. This portion of the 2021 exploration season is ongoing and includes geological mapping and prospecting, 37 line-kilometres of soil geochemical surveying, 100 line-kilometres of ground magnetic surveying, and 6 line-kilometres of HLEM surveying, all of which are expected to be completed by mid-September.
“Triumph Gold has used improved deposit and geophysical modeling along with AI vectoring to identify and target underexplored areas of the Freegold Mountain Project. We are very excited to receive assay results to confirm drillcore observations from all areas, including newly identified mineralization intersected south and east of Nucleus.” says Jesse Halle, VP Exploration for Triumph Gold. Halle adds “Work on our pipeline prospects is ongoing and preliminary results from these efforts are very encouraging.”
