GGX Gold Corp. (CVE:GGX, OTCQB:GGXXF) reported on more details of exploration at its Gold Drop property in British Columbia, where it discovered an extension of the geological vein system.
The extension was discovered via a combination of a 2017 soil geochemical survey and follow-up trenching during the 2018 summer exploration programme.
A quartz vein was exposed over a 20-metre length in a 2018 trench south of the Gold Drop underground workings.
Historic production from this vein system is reported to be 335 tonnes, produced during 1926 to 1988 (mainly during 1933 to 1941) with 5,020 grams of gold (14.99 grams per tonne (g/t) gold) and 35,894 grams of silver (107.1 g/t silver) recovered.
The Gold Drop vein system, in the east region of the property, had previously been traced in underground workings for a strike length of around 160 metres.
The quartz vein has so far been traced for 20m. The vein pinches and swells within the trench exposure with measured widths of around 0.6 m to around 2m. The vein trends around north-south.
