The 2018 drilling program also tested the continuity of the Everest vein, which is located south-west of the COD vein worksite.

The Everest vein 2018 drill holes are located roughly 350 to 800 metres south of the area of the 2017 and 2018 COD vein drill holes.

High gold intersections (core length) from the 2018 winter drill program at the Everest Vein include:

  • EVE18-5: 10.55 g/t gold (Au) over 0.45 metres

  • EVE18-12: 12.45 g/t Au over 0.85 metres

In addition to the gold discovered by the company at the COD and Everest veins, gold mineralization is reported in quartz veins in the east and north regions of the property. These include the Gold Drop, North Star and the Silent Friend quartz veins in the east region of the property and Amandy, Roderick Dhu, Lady of the Lake, Lake View and Moonlight in the northern region of the property.

High-grade gold has been reported for historic samples at some of these veins with samples reported to exceed 1 oz. / ton gold. Historic gold production occurred at the Gold Drop, North Star, Amandy and Roderick Dhu veins, GGX said.

Drill core from the 2018 winter program was geologically logged and sampled. Samples exceeding 100 g/t gold were re-analyzed for gold by Fire Assay – Gravimetric Finish. The samples were also analyzed for 48 Elements by Four Acid ICP-MS. Samples exceeding 100 g/t silver were re-analyzed for silver by Four Acid ICP-AES. One sample from COD18-46 exceeded 1500 g/t silver and was re-analyzed for silver by Fire Assay – Gravimetric Finish.
