OUTCROP OF 19.65 G/T GOLD LEADS TO NEWLY EXPOSED VEIN OVER 80 METERS
GGX Gold Corp.’s excavator trenching program, which was initiated after the discovery of new anomalous quartz outcrop exposed by logging, has unearthed over 80 metres of vein on both sides of the COD shaft. Samples taken from the new outcrop, returned up to 19.65 g/t gold.
“I am more than encouraged by the excavator trenching program on the Gold Drop which has recently exposed over 80 metres of vein adjacent to the C.O.D shaft. As trenching progresses, and new assays from the channel sampling program are reported, I expect we will gain a much better understanding of the mineralized vein structures which are prevalent on the property. “
Says Barry Brown President GGX Gold Corp.
The vein remains open at both ends and the new Clare Extension, which is immediately NE of the COD shaft, is on strike with a recently discovered outcrop that is located over 680 meters away, that returned 14.1 g/t gold. The Company is continuing the excavator program on the Clare Extension and has initiated a channel sampling program that will test the vein every 1.5 meters. The first batch of samples from this program have been delivered to ALS Lab for assaying.
The program is being conducted at the Gold Drop Southwest Zone formerly the reverted C.O.D. Grant, where the shaft was sampled in the early 30′s and returned a sample reported to be 0.75 oz. / ton Au.
The Gold Drop property covers geologically prospective ground in the well-mineralized Greenwood Mining Division in BC. The property hosts numerous low-sulfide, gold and silver bearing quartz veins or vein systems, four of which were previously mined (Gold Drop, North Star, Amandy and Roderick Dhu veins).
This historic C.O.D. shaft is reported to be approximately 21 metres deep, and reported to have been sunk around 1900 on a gold bearing quartz vein (C.O.D. occurrence). The shaft was reported to have been de-watered in 1983. Historic 1980s trenches reportedly traced the vein to the southwest to the Tel 2 occurrence. The quartz vein in the shaft (C.O.D occurrence) is reported to be 1.22 metres wide, striking northeast – southwest. A 1988 diamond drill hole reported adjacent to the shaft was reported to intersect 7.4 g/t Au and 86.8 g/t Ag over 0.75 metres (true width of mineralization not reported). Chip samples during 1983 from the vein were reported to average 10.3 g/t Au and 102.6 g/t Ag over a length of 1.2 metres. A 1988 quartz vein grab sample from a trench southwest of the C.O.D. shaft was reported to return 20.8 g/t Au and 115.6 g/t Ag (Tel 2 gold and silver occurrence). This 1988 sample was reported as banded chalcedonic quartz.
