K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (FSE: 5GP) (OTC Pink: WDFCF) (“K9” or the “Firm”) is happy to report that soil sampling, trenching and mapping packages have commenced on its Stony Lake undertaking in central Newfoundland. The soil sampling survey will likely be carried out by Floor Reality Exploration of Dawson Metropolis, YK. The trenching will likely be carried out by a neighborhood contractor from Grand Falls – Windsor.
The soil sampling survey will cowl six grids and whole roughly 4000 samples. The target of the survey is to establish areas of anomalous gold focus and related “pathfinder” parts alongside interpreted structural options and to supply data to permit a greater interpretation of the geochemical circumstances over the property. Using constant sampling and analytical methods will allow K9 geologists to carefully consider the historic geochemical knowledge and establish the geochemical traits of the property, thus resulting in simpler exploration.
Trenching of beforehand recognized areas of gold mineralization within the Botwood sandstone/Quartz Feldspar porphyry/mafic dikes will happen at 5 websites, two within the Jumper’s Pond space and three within the space coated by the Moonlight grid. Contingent on the trenching outcomes and compilation of the geophysical (floor and airborne surveys) these space could be included within the upcoming drill program (beginning in early June).
Massive areas of the undertaking stay to be explored. The mapping program is a continuation of the two-week program accomplished in October 2020, with each detailed mapping/prospecting in goal areas outlined final yr, in addition to protecting areas not beforehand mapped.
K9 has now mobilized its geological crew to Grand Falls – Windsor to start the summer time program which is deliberate to incorporate drilling, trenching, intensive soil sampling and mapping/prospecting. A core logging facility is beneath development in Grand Falls – Windsor.
K9 CEO Jeff Poloni states, “Our exploration staff is targeted on persevering with a scientific method in creating an in depth knowledge base to assist outline the geological, geophysical and geochemical traits of the property. We’re excited to get the drilling underway in June. “
Information Releases from different firms energetic within the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt proceed to extend the profile of this newly rising gold district. For instance, on April 28, 2021 Sokoman Minerals introduced a brand new discovery at South Pond on their Moosehead undertaking, instantly adjoining to K9’s Stony Lake property. On Could 4, 2021, New Discovered Gold introduced an intercept of 124.4 g/t Au over 17.7 m in gap NFGC-20-59 at their close by Queensway property.
K9 Gold acknowledges the monetary help of the Stony Lake undertaking by the Authorities of Newfoundland and Labrador, by means of the Division of Business, Vitality and Expertise Junior Exploration Help Program.
About Stony Lake Challenge
The Stony Lake undertaking lies inside the Cape Ray/Valentine Lake structural development in Central Newfoundland, mendacity parallel to that of New Discovered Gold’s Queensway undertaking, alongside the prolific Canine Bay Line. The undertaking covers 13,625 ha and 27 kilometers of favorable development between Sokoman’s Moosehead discovery to the northeast and Marathon’s Valentine Lake deposit to the southwest.
At Stony Lake, giant areas of serious gold mineralization happen primarily in altered Botwood sediments and quartz-feldspar porphyry intrusives related to intense silicification, sericite-chlorite-carbonate alteration and a powerful pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralogical affiliation. These options point out epizonal/mesozonal temperatures for the hydrothermal fluids and help the exploration mannequin of hydrothermal fluids leaking upwards into the Botwood sediments from a deeper igneous intrusive supply. This space is now known as the Exploits Subzone gold district which basically covers the Silurian-age clastic sediments surrounding the Mount Peyton intrusive.
Previous to the 2020 subject season, airborne geophysical protection, with follow-up floor prospecting and sampling, has led to the identification of eight space of extremely anomalous to excessive grade gold mineralization. The gold mineralization is hosted in quite a lot of environments, together with quartz-feldspar porphyries, lowered sandstones, quartz stockworks and quartz veins. The property hosts each widespread low grade mineralization (as much as 4.0 g/t Au) inside the Botwood Formation and excessive grade veins (>4.0 g/t Au) within the basement rocks beneath the Botwood, much like the close by New Discovered Gold Queensway undertaking, and the instantly adjoining Sokoman Minerals Moosehead discovery.
On-going interpretive work on the Stony Lake property has yielded a number of direct comparisons with the Sokoman Minerals Corp Moosehead discovery, instantly to the northeast of Stony Lake’s Jumper’s Pond space (notice – this space was beforehand named “Flyers Grid,” and since important parts of the historic Flyers Grid lie off K9’s property, K9 has renamed the world to keep away from confusion).
Revealed data on the Moosehead discovery signifies that the mineralization is spatially associated to transforming of a significant basement construction which is probably going the principle pathway for the mineralizing fluids. The spatial affiliation of the faulting with mafic intrusives seems to be extremely important. The Moosehead mineralization is hosted by N to NW trending and east dipping faults, which seem like associated to meso-scale anticlinal folding. A lot of these mineralizing programs usually have nice lateral and depth extents (measured in kilometers).
Latest (2019) and historic (2001) geophysical work on the Jumper’s Pond space strongly suggests the presence of a giant fold construction that plunges to the NE in direction of Moosehead, in addition to a number of NW-trending structural options. The presence of mafic rocks can be indicated for this space. The main fault construction associated to the Mooseheads discovery can clearly be traced by regional magnetics for five – 6 km onto the Stony Lake property. These similarities improve K9’s confidence within the prospectivity of the Jumper’s Pond space.
