TORONTO, June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the “Firm”) is happy to announce it has commenced diamond drilling on the Ryan’s Shock goal (“Ryan’s”) and northern extent of the Ulli’s Ridge goal positioned roughly 2 km west of its flagship Golden Saddle and Arc deposits and 11 km south of the Firm’s VG deposit. The Golden Saddle and Arc deposits have a mixed mineral useful resource of 1,139,900 ounces Indicated at 2.28 g/t Au and 402,100 ounces Inferred at 1.39 g/t Au(1) and the VG deposit hosts a historic Inferred gold useful resource of 230,000 ounces at 1.65g/t Au(2). This exercise marks the initiation of the Firm’s 2021 exploration program on its intensive 420,000 hectare land bundle within the rising White Gold District, west-central Yukon, Canada.
The Ryan’s and Ulli’s targets are located on a 6.5 km lengthy x 1.0 km extensive, north-south pattern of anomalous gold and arsenic in soils, which extends from the Ulli’s Ridge goal within the south to the Instructor’s displaying within the north (Determine 1). The shut proximity of Ryan’s and Ulli’s Ridge to the Firm’s current mineral sources at Golden Saddle and Arc makes these extremely strategic targets. With solely restricted exploration to this point, these targets provide the potential for added gold discoveries exterior the present useful resource areas.
- Ryan’s is located on a 6.5km lengthy x 1.0km extensive north-south pattern of anomalous gold and arsenic in soils, which hosts a number of different targets together with Ulli’s Ridge, Minneapolis Creek, Principal Ridge and Academics.
- 2021 diamond drilling contains 2,500 m in 8 holes to observe up on a number of high-grade gold intercepts from the 2020 diamond drilling program, which included 17.4 g/t Au over 3.47 m in gap WHTRS20D013, 10.96 g/t Au over 3.76 m in gap WHTRS20D017, and eight.69 g/t Au over 12.3 m in gap WHTRS20D018
- Gold mineralization on the Ryan’s has been encountered in a number of zones which stay open alongside strike and down-dip.
- 2021 diamond drilling will even check the northernmost a part of the Ulli’s Ridge goal, which would be the first-ever diamond drilling of this goal to observe up on encouraging 2020 GT probe outcomes, which encountered a 25m extensive zone (6 samples) averaging 2.119 g/t Au with a most worth of 8.516 g/t Au.
“We’re anticipating one other thrilling and profitable season in 2021 with discipline applications now underway.” said Terry Brace, Vice President of Exploration. “The diamond drilling program at Ryan’s Shock is the primary scheduled drilling of the season, and we’re wanting to observe up on encouraging high-grade gold outcomes from final 12 months’s program. We’ve a busy exploration season deliberate throughout the district and will probably be offering particulars within the close to future.”
2021 Diamond Drilling Program
Deliberate 2021 exploration diamond drilling at Ryan’s Shock and Ulli’s Ridge contains 2,500 m in 8 holes (Determine 2). A number of holes are designed to check for western strike and down-dip extensions of mineralization encountered in 2019 and 2020 drilling. The 2021 program will check the mineralized zones a further 200 m to the west and to a vertical depth of roughly 425m. Deliberate holes to the southwest will check for near-surface mineralization indicated by soil and GT Probe anomalies which kind the northernmost extent of the Ulli’s Ridge goal. In 2020, GT Probe sampling on this space at Ulli’s Ridge returned extremely encouraging outcomes, with the northern portion of line WHTGTP20-003 having 6 samples (25m extensive) that averaged 2.119 g/t Au together with a most worth of 8.516 g/t Au (see Firm Information Launch dated February 09, 2021). Of be aware, this a part of the Ulli’s Ridge goal has not been beforehand examined by trenching or drilling.
Ryan’s Shock Goal
Gold mineralization was initially found at Ryan’s Shock by Kinross Gold Corp. (TSX: Okay, NYSE: KGC) in 2011 with diamond drill gap WGRS11D0003 returning 6.33 g/t Au over 6.56 m from 159.44 m downhole. Subsequent drilling by the Firm in 2018 by 2020 has continued to come across gold mineralization in a number of zones which stay open alongside strike and down-dip. Diamond drilling in 2020 returned a number of high-grade gold intercepts together with 17.4 g/t Au over 3.47 m in gap WHTRS20D013, 10.96 g/t Au over 3.76 m in gap WHTRS20D017, and eight.69 g/t Au over 12.3 m in gap WHTRS20D018 (see Firm Information Launch dated October 14, 2020).
The geology of the Ryan’s Shock space consists of two major lithological packages, an higher mafic to ultramafic bundle comprising amphibolite and pyroxenite, and an underlying metasedimentary sequence of metaquartzite, biotite-quartz-feldspar gneiss and minor biotite schist. The contact between the 2 packages strikes northwest, is comparatively flat-lying, and seems to be a thrust fault (Determine 3). Gold mineralization is structurally managed by brittle breccia and fracture zones with minor late quartz veining predominantly within the metaquartzite alongside a 100 m to 125 m extensive east-west trending structural hall. There’s a sturdy affiliation with anomalous arsenic, hydrothermal graphite and sooty pyrite. Up to now, 18 drill holes totalling 4,406 m have examined the Ryan’s Shock goal alongside an roughly 300 m strike size and to a vertical depth of 300 m.
Ulli’s Ridge Goal
The Ulli’s Ridge goal space is positioned instantly south of Ryan’s Shock and is characterised by a big northwest-southeast trending coincident gold and arsenic soil anomaly measuring some 1,500 m lengthy by 600 m extensive with gold values as much as 1585 ppb Au and arsenic values as much as 2484 ppm As. Earlier trenching and drilling at Ulli’s Ridge have encountered vital gold mineralization together with 1.38 g/t Au over 20m in trench WGUR12TR01, 2.58 g/t Au over 3.05m and 6.27 g/t Au over 1.52m in gap WHTULR17RC-001, 9.70 g/t Au over 1.52m in gap WHTULR17RC-002, and 1.40 g/t Au over 7.62m in gap WHTULR19RAB-001. In 2020, GT Probe sampling on this space at Ulli’s Ridge returned extremely encouraging outcomes, with the northern portion of line WHTGTP20-003 having 6 samples (25m extensive) that averaged 2.119 g/t Au together with a most worth of 8.516 g/t Au.
