Might develop sources at Rockhaven’s southern Yukon challenge North of 60 Mining Information – January 15, 2021
Rockhaven Assets Ltd. Jan. 13 introduced the invention of a brand new vein advanced at its Klaza gold-silver property in southern Yukon.
Positioned on placer gold mining roads about 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Carmacks, Klaza is an advance staged exploration challenge that hosts 4.46 million metric tons of indicated useful resource averaging 4.8 grams per metric ton (686,000 oz) gold and 98 g/t (14.1 million oz) silver; plus 5.71 million metric tons of inferred useful resource averaging 2.8 g/t (507,000 oz) gold and 76 g/t (13.9 million oz) silver. These sources additionally include a small quantity of zinc and lead.
This useful resource was the premise for a 2020 preliminary financial evaluation for an economically strong mine at Klaza. Detailed drilling of different recognized mineralized buildings on the Klaza property to construct further mineral useful resource was among the many enhancement alternatives outlined within the PEA.
Additional particulars on the Klaza PEA will be learn at Robust PEA for Klaza mine in the Yukon within the July 17 version of North of 60 Mining Information.
Rockhaven’s 2020 program included 6,042 meters of diamond drilling in 22 holes that targeted on the analysis of targets that lie outdoors of the Klaza deposit.
This consists of ten holes at Rusk, a beforehand undrilled goal about 3,000 meters south of the Klaza deposit that’s delineated by a big geochemical anomaly that’s transected by linear magnetic lows and really low frequency electromagnetic geophysical conductors just like these marking the principle mineralized zones that make up the Klaza deposit.
As well as, Rusk lies alongside the most important placer gold mine within the Mount Nansen gold camp.
Rockhaven says all eight holes that reached focused depth lower gold-silver-zinc-lead mineralization at Rusk. Highlights from these holes embody:
• One meter averaging 2.1 g/t gold, 657 g/t silver, 12.98% lead, and 6.17% zinc from a depth of 82.6 meters in gap KL-20-469.
• 9.8 meters averaging 1.42 g/t gold, 30.7 g/t silver, 0.48% lead, and 0.60% zinc from a depth of 35.4 meters in gap KL-20-470.
• 0.63 meters averaging 16.35 g/t gold, 321 g/t silver, 1.98% lead, and 1.01% zinc from a depth of 123.9 meters in gap KL-20-470.
• 0.5 meters averaging 7.08 g/t gold, 884 g/t silver, 5.37% lead, and 5.79% zinc from a depth of 61 meters in gap KL-20-471.
• 5.65 meters averaging 2.05 g/t gold, 129 g/t silver, 2.29% lead, and 4.67% zinc from a depth of 201 meters in gap KL-20-471.
• 0.7 meters averaging 4.43 g/t gold, 1,230 g/t silver, 0.51% lead, and 0.41% zinc from a depth of 53.5 meters in gap KL-20-473.
“The invention of a wholly new vein system in a beforehand undrilled space is a game-changer and demonstrates the distinctive exploration potential at Klaza,” stated Rockhaven Resources President and CEO Matt Turner.
Primarily based on the outcomes from this preliminary section of drilling at Rusk, the corporate is planning for added drilling at this goal in 2021. This systematic drilling will primarily deal with increasing the very best grade zones, particularly these lower by holes KL-20-469, -470, -471 and -473. This space is roofed by a skinny layer of overburden, which can assist in each drill efficiencies and allow using excavator trenching, an efficient exploration software at Klaza.
“Systematic drilling of the comparatively close-spaced Rusk veins ought to quickly construct on the recognized gold and silver sources already established on the property,” stated Turner.
Outcomes from twelve further holes drilled in the course of the 2020 drill program at Klaza are pending.
