VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 19, 2021 /CNW/ – Etruscus Assets Corp. (CSE: ETR) (OTC: ETRUF) (FSE: ERR) (the “Firm” or “Etruscus”) is happy to announce substantial rock sampling outcomes from the “Thunderstruck” goal newly found throughout its 2020 summer time exploration program within the Eskay Camp of BC’s resource-rich Golden Triangle. The Thunderstruck goal is situated 1.5 km southeast of the Hurricane Goal (introduced January 13, 2021), each situated on the lately staked prolonged Rock & Roll claims, and 13 km northwest of the Black Canine Deposit.
Like Hurricane, the Thunderstruck goal was instantly upgraded to high-priority as a result of robust geochemistry returned from the high-grade samples. The realm contained a number of quartz calcite veins of cm scale that unfold over an space of tons of of meters. Iron carbonate weathering and gossanous patches had been seen by the deposited glacial moraine. The veins confirmed polymetallic signatures excessive in components anticipated in epithermal environments equivalent to Pretium’s high-grade Brucejack deposit.
- Seize pattern* # B0026845 assayed 7,013 g/t silver, 12.7 g/t gold, 3.9% zinc, 2.4% lead, and 0.2% copper;
- One other seize pattern taken 85 meters (“m”) away additionally had very spectacular silver outcomes with 1,017 g/t silver, in addition to vital gold, copper, lead and zinc;
- Historic work from this space in 1983 counsel it was fully underneath ice at the moment;
- The close by Argentina vein 1,800 m northwest sampled 555 g/t silver;
- The close by Heather vein 1,500 m southeast sampled 25 g/t gold, 332 g/t silver and 5.1% lead in 2019 and soil sampled** 9.5 g/t gold and >100 g/t silver in 1983; and
- Additional rock sampling to the south alongside the sting of the glacier, 200 m and 700 m south additionally returned rocks with elevated silver and gold (Click Here to View Map).
By way of an intensive 20-day geological mapping and sampling program accomplished on the prolonged Rock & Roll claims this previous summer time, the workforce found quite a few veins at or close to the Thunderstruck goal. These veins seem to point out potential for treasured metallic mineralization together with high-grade silver and gold, and sometimes exhibit elemental signatures consultant of an epithermal system. They happen in a fine-grained sedimentary sequence of siltstones and calcareous sediments tentatively assigned to be Higher Stuhini Stratigraphy.
The Firm remains to be ready for extra sampling outcomes from its 2020 exploration program. Nevertheless, inspired by outcomes thus far, the Firm is already planning a bigger, extra outlined sampling, mapping and prospecting program of the realm for 2021. With lately unglaciated terrain, the realm is generally unexplored and has turn out to be very potential for high-grade mineralization.
Dr. Dave R. Webb, Vice President, Exploration, feedback on Thunderstruck, “As we seek for extensions to our Black Canine Deposit, we have now found a brand new space of high-grade mineralization that seems to have an epithermal signature just like Pretium’s Brucejack deposit. There’s an abundance of high-grade samples and veins on this space that has barely seen any exploration. With new VTEM knowledge and geological mapping finished in 2020, we’re trying ahead to advancing this goal shortly, together with a plan to drill it this yr.
Gordon Lam, President and CEO of Etruscus additional feedback, “To say we’re enthusiastic about these outcomes is an understatement. We have now now been in a position to strategically establish key areas for additional exploration which we’re assured will present proof of serious mineralization of high-grade silver and gold.”
Technical facets of this information launch have been reviewed and permitted by Dr. Dave R. Webb, Ph.D., P.Geo., who’s a Certified Individual as outlined underneath Nationwide Instrument 43-101.
QA/QC and Analytical Procedures
The Firm has adopted a rigorous high quality assurance and high quality management (“QA/QC”) program to make sure greatest practices in sampling each diamond drill core and floor rock chip samples of roughly 1 kg in weight. The Firm’s samples and drill core are being assayed by MSA LABS which has services in Terrance and Langley, BC. and is unbiased of the Firm. Core is flown from drill websites to the core shack facility the place it was sampled at 1-3m intervals. The samples had been then half minimize with one half despatched to the lab and the opposite half saved on website. As soon as on the lab, samples had been crushed to 70% cross 2mm fraction, after which a 250g break up was pulverized to raised than 85% handed a 75-micros display. The geochemical analyses had been carried out by MSA LABS utilizing multi-element aqua-regia digestion ICP-MS package deal (IMS-111). Gold was analyzed by fireplace assay method FAS-114. Larger gold grades (>3 g/t) had been analyzed by fireplace assay. MSA LABS is a supplier of geochemical laboratory providers for the exploration and mining industries is an ISO 17025 (Testing and Calibration) and ISO 9001 (High quality Administration System) accredited laboratory. Along with the lab’s inside QA/QC program, the Firm inserted 10% lab licensed requirements, blanks and subject duplicates into the general sampling stream.
* Seize samples are selectively collected and are subsequently not consultant of all mineralization hosted on the property.
** Historic samples can’t be verified by Etruscus however are deemed to be correct to the most effective of our data.
Etruscus Assets Corp. is a Vancouver-based exploration firm centered on the event of its 100%-owned Rock & Roll and Sugar properties comprising 27,880 hectares close to the previous producing Snip mine in Northwest B.C.’s prolific Golden Triangle.
