Riley Gold Corp. is happy to report extra high-grade gold and silver samples from the systematic sampling and exploration program at its Tokop Gold Mission positioned in Esmeralda County, Nevada.
Riley Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RLYG) (OTCQB: RLYGF) (“Riley Gold” or the “Firm”) is happy to report extra high-grade gold and silver samples from the systematic sampling and exploration program at its Tokop Gold Mission (the “Mission” or “Tokop”) positioned in Esmeralda County, Nevada.
Thus far, Riley Gold’s 2020/21 exploration program has included mapping, sampling and geological overview and interpretation of earlier work performed on the Mission. Preliminary floor rock samples introduced on December 17, 2020, included as much as 16.1 grams per tonne (“gpt”) gold and 105 gpt silver. The remaining floor rock samples (extra 116 samples) taken by Riley Gold have returned assays, from hint to vital high-grade materials as much as 19.3 gpt gold and 970 gpt silver (see under for highlights and Determine 1). Moreover, and after additional overview of earlier work performed on the Mission, together with reviewing logs and chip samples pertaining to earlier drilling on the Mission, the Firm recognized seen gold (“VG”) from its panning of some samples taken in outcrops or dumps (Determine 2).
Todd Hilditch, President and CEO of Riley Gold commented, “We’re more than happy with the extra outcomes of our floor pattern program at Tokop. These outcomes show grade potential for each gold and silver at Tokop, in addition to measurement potential of the mineralized system with floor rock samples extending 1.83 km from NW to SE and three.62 km SW to NE. The outcomes from the sampling program have confirmed the places for our drilling marketing campaign which is because of begin inside the subsequent 7 days.”
Tokop Rock Geochem and Assay outcomes:
Gold assay outcomes for a complete of 125 rock samples have been acquired as a part of a preliminary mapping and sampling program centered on new structural (Determine 4) and geologic interpretations of the intrusive-hosted gold mineralization on the Mission. As effectively, new sampling has confirmed historic floor pattern outcomes and, in some locations, found new areas requiring extra work.
Floor Rock Sampling Highlights:
- Spot pattern of 19.3 gpt gold & 104 gpt silver (Determine 2 VG picture)
- Spot pattern of 14.75 gpt gold & 179 gpt silver
- Spot pattern of 8.06 gpt gold & 728 gpt silver
Chip channel Sampling Highlights:
- 5.0 meter (“m”) of 5.4 gpt gold (common of two contiguous samples)
- 3.0 m of 5.97 gpt gold (Determine 3 picture)
- 1.0 m of seven.32 gpt gold
- 0.5 m of 9.45 gpt gold
- 0.7 m of 12.0 gpt gold
- 1.0 m of 1.565 gpt gold & 970 gpt silver

Further geochem analyses included silver and multi-element analyses, the place samples returned seem to point out correlation between gold and bismuth, tellurium, arsenic, mercury, and a few base metals. These outcomes echo prior sampling and reinforce our preliminary idea of Tokop being a Decreased Intrusion-Associated Gold System (“RIRGS”), genetically just like Fort Knox in Alaska (>8.0 M oz gold produced via 2020) and Dublin Gulch/Eagle Mine, within the Yukon Territory of Canada (M & I useful resource of ~2.98 M oz gold, 2011 Feasibility Report).
At Tokop, gold mineralization happens inside veins, stockworks and shears in an apophasis of the Sylvania Inventory, a late Jurassic to early Cretaceous multi-phase, decreased, calc-alkalic granitic pluton. The inventory intrudes carbonate sediments of the Pre-Cambrian Wyman formation. Close to the intrusive contact, skinny zones of garnet/pyroxene skarn and hornfels are widespread. Faults, veins, and jasperoids might comprise a number of gpt gold within the altered carbonates as much as a number of lots of of meters away from the intrusive contacts.

Tokop Gold Mission
The Mission probably hosts a RIRGS, just like massive mines within the Tintina Gold Belt of central Alaska and contiguous elements of the Yukon. The perfect identified and most economically vital of those embody the Fort Knox and Pogo gold mines in Alaska and the Eagle Mine of the Dublin Gulch Properties within the Yukon. At Tokop, equally to these mines, sheeted quartz veins in a multi-phase, decreased, calc-alkaline granitoid intrusive, coupled with widespread hydrothermal alteration, might host gold mineralization of great potential. Shear-hosted veins have been famous to increase for almost two kilometers alongside strike at Tokop. Thus far, grades inside the vein programs sampled ran as excessive as 34.4 gpt gold and 970 gpt silver (historic and present sampling).
