The SD 009 core hole
targeted at an area of sulphide mineralisation where reverse circulation drilling has been unable to fully cross the mineralised zone due to difficult ground conditions.
HSP-C1 was a 783 meter test of a deeper resistivity zone with high chargeability and intersected numerous carbon-rich quartz veined breccias and fuchsite (chrome mica) - listwanite (nickel mica) altered mafic intrusions indicative of a Carlin Gold System (green alteration mineral in photo, (press release dated July 3, 2019).
This exploration drilling program is expected to consist of an initial phase of 9 reverse circulation holes and 1 core hole
for a total of approximately 20,000 feet.
According to the company, the rotary hole, which is located 15 meters east of the core hole
currently underway, is now at 309 meters, with an expected target dept of 400 meters.
Thread-forming taps cold-form the metal in the core hole
into final thread form without cutting.
Third, further evaluation of the Quebrada de la Mina (QDM) prospect, a low grade gold discovery located adjacent to the Altar porphyry deposit and recognized in previously reported 2010 reconnaissance drilling which included a 224 meter drill intercept averaging 0.925 g/t Au in core hole
08CBN-008 has intersected 80.8m grading 1.23 g/t Au including 20.11m of 0.90 g/t Au.
Gold Standard Ventures reported Phase 2 results from 18 reverse-circulation drill holes and one core hole
at the Dixie Deposit and the Arcturus target on its 100%-owned/controlled Railroad-Pinion Project in Nevada's Carlin Trend.
This drilling programme was extended to include a third core hole
to test the Red Cloud vein which has also been completed, added the company.
Diamond core hole
with RC pre-collar BCRD100005 testing the south western margin of the Buccaneer Porphyry Deposit returned:
Gold Standard Ventures reported results from one core hole
and one reverse-circulation, or RC, hole at the Dark Star deposit on its 100%-owned/controlled Railroad-Pinion Project in Nevada's Carlin Trend.
The firm found 191.5 m of 1.46 g/t gold beginning at a depth of 4.5 m in core hole
BC11-226, 40.3 m of 1.21 g/t gold beginning at a depth of 13.2 m in core hole
BC11-229 and 24.0 m of 1.65 g/t gold from a depth of 62.5 m in core hole
