Goldseek Resources Inc (CSE:GSK) told investors its maiden drill program at its Southern Arm project at the Detour trend in Quebec will comprise 51 till sample holes and four diamond drill holes.
The company owns contiguous claims covering 8,000 acres in the Fenelon Gold camp, 10km south of Wallbridge Mining Company Ltd’s (TSE:WM) Fenelon asset. Goldseek has three targets, all related to the Bapst fault, where the firm has 7.3km of strike length.
"For our maiden program in early 2021, we look forward to doing a combination of till percussion drilling and diamond drilling," said Goldseek CEO Jon Deluce in a statement.
"The Fenelon camp has large depths of overburden, which has limited discoveries in the past and is why we believe till percussion drilling is an effective way to create strong targets along our 7 Km conductive trend. The targets that are currently drill-ready will be tested by diamond drilling during the same program."
Deluce said this strategy would increase the firm's chances of making a discovery in this very "active gold camp that has seen very impressive high-grade intercepts" by neighbor Wallbridge.
Goldseek highlighted that previous till sampling, using reverse circulation drilling had been successful in defining gold anomalies, with finds including 4,790; 4,690 and 7,110 parts per billion (ppb) gold in three different holes located respectively 250m; 2 km and 4.7 km away from the property's boundary.
The till drill program will follow up on these historical results, while also sampling till down-ice from the Bapst fault, of which the firm owns more than 7.3km of strike length, it said.
Goldseek will also be testing drill-ready targets, including the so-called Target 1, which has never been drilled and contains multiple features that indicate gold mineralization potential.
The company wants to make the next major discovery in the mining camps of Urban Barry, Quevillon, Val D'Or and Detour Gold Trend in Quebec and Hemlo in Ontario.
