Bluestone Announces Additional Drill Results

Bluestone Resources Inc. (TSXV:BSR | OTCQB:BBSRF) ("Bluestone" or the "Company" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298837 ) is pleased to announce additional infill drill results from resource conversion drilling underway at its high-grade Cerro Blanco Gold project. The focus of the ongoing infill drill program is to upgrade the Inferred Resources into Measured and Indicated Resources.

Bluestone recently announced results of a Feasibility Study on the high-grade Cerro Blanco Gold project (see press release January 29, 2019) where one of the principle recommendations for optimizing and further enhancing the project was through potential conversion of a portion of the 360,000 ounces of Inferred Resources to Measured and Indicated Resources through infill drilling (currently ongoing), which will be followed by an updated mineral resource and mine plan.

Two LM-75 diamond drill rigs are currently situated within the North Zone of the Cerro Blanco underground workings and are targeting specific veins in the upper part of the Cerro Blanco resource that can be converted to the Indicated Resource category by infill drilling.

The primary focus of the program is to upgrade the Inferred Resources identified during the previous infill drill program completed in 2018. In addition, this program is also designed to define new resources along known veins in the mine plan that extend outside of the current resource envelope.

David Cass, Vice President of Exploration commented, “The infill drilling program has been designed to strategically target key veins with upgrading resource categories. To date, the program has had an excellent success rate with every key intercept expected to have a positive impact on future project economics, with intercepted veins showing remarkable consistency and continuity, validated by optimum hole orientations reflected in the drilled true widths.”

Hole UGCB18-109 and UGCB18-110 were both drilled from the same underground platform at a positive angle (+35 and +51 degrees respectively). The principle objective of these holes was conversion or extension of veins VN_01, 02 and 03 from Inferred to Indicated Resources. UGCB18-109 intercepted all targeted veins as planned with VN_02 assaying 3.3 meters at 27.9 g/t. Hole UGCB18-110 intersected veins VN_02 and VN_03 with the former assaying 2.0 meters at 10 g/t Au (see table).

Additionally, a new vein, located in the footwall of vein VN_01 was intercepted at 33.7 meters in both holes ( 1.0 meter at 8.5 g/t Au and 1.0 meter at 19.9 g/t Au) and correlates with intercepts drilled in holes UGCB18-101 and UGCB18-106 that assayed 1.95 meters at 12.6 g/t Au and 1.0 meter at 12.4 g/t Au respectively (see press releases January 9th and January 24th, 2019). This new vein is outside of the current resource and will be referred to as VN_18 in future updated resource models.

Drilling is continuing and further results will be reported as received. A plan view showing drill hole locations can be accessed by clicking HERE.

(“Bluestone” or the “Company”) believes, expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future including, without limitation: the conversion of the inferred mineral resources; increasing the amount of measured mineral and indicated mineral resources; the proposed timeline and benefits of further drilling; the proposed timeline and benefits of the Feasibility Study; statements about the Company’s plans for its mineral properties; Bluestone’s business strategy, plans and outlook; the future financial or operating performance of Bluestone; capital expenditures, corporate general and administration expenses and exploration and development expenses; expected working capital requirements; the future financial estimates of the Cerro Blanco Project economics, including estimates of capital costs of constructing mine facilities and bringing a mine into production and of sustaining capital costs, estimates of operating costs and total costs, net present value and economic returns; proposed production timelines and rates; funding availability; resource estimates; and future exploration and operating plans are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations or beliefs of the Company based on information currently available to Bluestone and often use words such as “expects”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “estimates”, “intends”, “may” or variations thereof or the negative of any of these terms.

All forward-looking statements are made based on the Company’s current beliefs as well as various assumptions made by them and information currently available to them.  Generally, these assumptions include, among others: the ability of Bluestone to carry on exploration and development activities; the price of gold, silver and other metals; there being no material variations in the current tax and regulatory environment; the exchange rates among the Canadian dollar, Guatemalan quetzal and the United States dollar remaining consistent with current levels; the presence of and continuity of metals at the Cerro Blanco Project at estimated grades; the availability of personnel, machinery and equipment at estimated prices and within estimated delivery times; metals sales prices and exchange rates assumed; appropriate discount rates applied to the cash flows in economic analyses; tax rates and royalty rates applicable to the proposed mining operation; the availability of acceptable financing; anticipated mining losses and dilution; success in realizing proposed operations; anticipated timelines for community consultations and the impact of those consultations on the regulatory approval process.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual results of the Company to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements and, even if such actual results are realized or substantially realized, there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, Bluestone. Factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things: risks relating to variations in the mineral content within the mineral identified as mineral resources from that predicted; risks and uncertainties related to expected production rates, timing and amount of production and total costs of production; risks and uncertainties related to ability to obtain or maintain necessary licenses, permits, or surface rights; risks associated with technical difficulties in connection with mining development activities; risks and uncertainties related to the accuracy of mineral resource estimates and estimates of future production, future cash flow, total costs of production and diminishing quantities or grades of mineral resources; risks associated with geopolitical uncertainty and political and economic instability in Guatemala; risks and uncertainties related to interruptions in production; the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations; uncertain political and economic environments and relationships with local communities; variations in rates of recovery and extraction; developments in world metals markets; risks related to fluctuations in currency exchange rates; as well as those factors discussed under “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Amended and Restated Annual Information Form.

Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it was made, and except as may be required by applicable securities laws, Bluestone disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise. Although Bluestone believes that the assumptions inherent in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and accordingly undue reliance should not be put on such statements due to their inherent uncertainty.  There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.

Non-IFRS Financial Performance Measures

The Company has included certain non-International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) measures in this new release. The Company believes that these measures, in addition to measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, provide investors an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company and to compare it to information reported by other companies. The non-IFRS measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

All-in sustaining costs

The Company believes that all-in sustaining costs (“AISC”) more fully defines the total costs associated with producing gold.

The Company calculates AISC as the sum of refining costs, third party royalties, site operating costs, sustaining capital costs and closure capital costs all divided by the gold ounces sold to arrive at a per ounce amount. Other companies may calculate this measure differently as a result of differences in underlying principles and policies applied. Differences may also arise due to a different definition of sustaining versus non-sustaining capital.

Total cash costs

Total cash costs is a common financial performance measure in the gold mining industry but has no standard meaning. The Company reports total cash costs on a gold ounce sold basis. The Company believes that, in addition to measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, such as revenue, certain investors can use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to generate operating earnings and cash flow from its mining operations. Management uses this metric as an important tool to monitor operating cost performance.

Total cash costs include (cost of sales such as mining, processing, maintenance and site administration, royalties, selling costs and by-product credits) to arrive at total cash costs per ounce of gold sold. Other companies may calculate this measure differently.

AISC and total cash costs reconciliation

ASIC and total cash costs are calculated based on the definitions published by the World Gold Council (“WGC”) (a market development organization for the gold industry comprised of and funded by 18 gold mining companies from around the world). The WGC is not a regulatory organization.

Bluestone bohrt 3,0 m mit 16,3 g/t Au und findet neue Adern auf Cerro Blanco im Rahmen des Infill-Bohrprogramms zur Umwandlung und Aufstufung der vorhandenen Ressourcen

Bluestone Resources Inc. (TSXV:BSR | OTCQB:BBSRF) ("Bluestone" oder das "Unternehmen" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298725) gab heute die ersten Ergebnisse des laufenden 3.500 m Infill-Bohrprogramms bekannt, das auf dem hochwertigen Cerro Blanco Gold-Projekts durchgeführt wird. Der Hauptfokus des Programms liegt auf der Verbesserung der abgeleiteten Ressourcen, die während des im letzten Jahr abgeschlossenen Bohrprogramms identifiziert wurden, und der Definition neuer Ressourcen entlang von Adern im Minenplan, die sich außerhalb der aktuellen Ressourcenhülle erstrecken.

Darüber hinaus wurde eine neue mineralisierte Vene in Loch UGCB18-101 gebohrt, die 2,7 m von 12,6 g/t Au ergab. Diese neue Ader befindet sich in der nördlichen Zone und wurde von der Positivrampe unter Tage gebohrt.

Zwei LM-75-Bohrgeräte befinden sich in der nördlichen Zone des Untertagebaus von Cerro Blanco  im Einsatz und zielen auf bestimmte Aderbereiche im oberen Teil der Ressource Cerro Blanco ab, die durch Infill-Bohrungen in die Kategorie Angezeigte Ressourcen umgewandelt werden können.  Zusätzlich wird erwartet, dass bestimmte Venen mit angezeigten Ressourcen in gemessene Ressourcen umgewandelt werden, wenn die Bohrdichte ausreichend ist.

"Erste Ergebnisse aus diesem Programm bestätigen unseren Glauben an das Explorations- und Wachstumspotenzial von Cerro Blanco, fördern unser kurzfristiges Ziel, Ressourcen von abgeleiteten Ressourcen in angezeigte Ressourcen umzuwandeln und möglicherweise neue Unzen außerhalb des Gebiets, in dem sich die aktuelle Ressourcenschätzung befindet, hinzuzufügen", sagte Darren Klinck, President und CEO von Bluestone. "Die im September 2018 angekündigte Ressourcenschätzung definierte 360.000 Unzen in der Kategorie[1]Abgeleitete Ressourcen. Die Umwandlung eines großen Teils dieser Unzen in die Kategorie Angezeigte Ressourcen stellt eine bedeutende Gelegenheit dar, einen Mehrwert für die Wirtschaftlichkeit des Projekts zu schaffen. Die Mehrheit der derzeit abgeleiteten Ressourcenunzen befindet sich auf Adern, die bereits gemessene und angezeigte Ressourcen mit ausreichenden Gehalten und Breiten für den Bergbau aufweisen. Diese abgeleiteten Ressourcen sollen nach der Aufrüstung in einen Minenplan aufgenommen werden. Das aktuelle Programm soll die höhere Bohrdichte bieten, die erforderlich ist, um diese Ressourcen auf den Status der gemessenen und angezeigten Ressourcen zu bringen."

Loch CB-409 wurde von der Oberfläche gebohrt (Abbildung 3) mit dem Hauptziel, einen abgeleiteten Ressourcenabschnitt der Ader VN_10 abzufangen, der insgesamt 32.215 Unzen in der abgeleiteten Ressourcenkategorie (87.367 Tonnen mit 11,5 g/t Au bei einem Cutoff von 3,5 g/t Au) gemäß der aktuellen Ressourcenschätzung, Stichtag 6. August 2018 gemäß der Pressemitteilung vom 11. September 2018, enthält. Das Ziel wurde wie erwartet 226 m im Bohrloch abgefangen und  zeigte 3,0 m mit 16,3 g/t Au und 15,1 g/t Ag, etwa 62 m im Gefälle seiner Exposition innerhalb des North Ramp Untertagebaus, wo vier 1,0 m Kanalproben, die über die Ader entnommen wurden, durchschnittlich 34,5 g/t Au erreichten. Das Loch durchteufte erwartungsgemäß alle anderen angrenzenden Adern, einschließlich einer neuen Erweiterung der Ader VN_07, die diese Struktur um 52 m nach unten erweitert.

Die Löcher UGCB18-100 und UGCB18-101 wurden aus den unterirdischen Gruben gebohrt (Abbildung 4 & 5), mit dem Ziel, eine primäre Ader mit insgesamt 46.800 Unzen in der abgeleiteten Ressourcenkategorie (154.500 Tonnen mit 9,4 g/t Au) gemäß der aktuellen Ressourcenschätzung, Stichtag 6. August 2018 gemäß der Pressemitteilung vom 11. September 2018, zu verfüllen. Das Ziel wurde wie erwartet in beiden Löchern abgefangen. Wichtig ist, dass UGCB18-100 die Erweiterungen der Venen VN_01, VN_03 und VN_05 geschnitten hat, die außerhalb des aktuellen Ressourcenumfangs liegen und in Zukunft möglicherweise neue Ressourcen hinzufügen könnten.

White Gold Corp. Makes New Discovery on Betty Property Along the Extension of the Coffee Creek Fault

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company” – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298689 ) is pleased to announce Rotary-Air-Blast (“RAB”) drill results from its Betty property located in Yukon, Canada, with numerous drill holes across several target areas encountering near surface gold mineralization. The gold mineralization was encountered along the eastern extension of the Coffee Creek fault which hosts the adjacent Coffee deposit owned by Goldcorp Inc. (TSX: G, NYSE: GG) currently being developed as an open pit and heap leach gold mine with commercial production anticipated to begin in 2021. These results represent a new discovery on a previously undrilled target, discovered through the Company’s systematic and data driven regional exploration program backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC). 

Maps to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

Highlights Include:

  • At the Betty Ford target, BETFRDRAB18-002 returned 1.08 g/t Au over 50.29m from 4.57m depth, including 2.24 g/t Au over 9.41m from 19.81m depth with the top 25.91m of the hole showing oxidized mineralization and additional shallow mineralization encountered in other holes along trend.
  • At Betty White target, gold mineralization was intersected in every hole with individual results ranging from trace to 3.61 g/t Au.
  • Gold mineralization encountered across multiple target areas highlights the large-scale potential of the mineralized system, with additional targets remaining undrilled.
  • The Betty property is contiguous to the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp and hosted in the same regional structure, with very limited drill testing performed on the Betty property to date.
  • Additional results from the JP Ross and White Gold properties are in progress and will be announced in due course.

“The discovery on the Betty Ford target is a very significant finding, intersecting over 50 meters of near surface gold mineralization at grades comparable to the adjacent Coffee project, along trend and with structural similarities. We are also very encouraged with the discovery of gold mineralization encountered on other targets across the Betty property which indicates the presence of a broader gold system,” stated Jodie Gibson, VP Exploration. “The Betty property remains underexplored and we believe that this preliminary shallow drill program has just scratched the surface of the mineral potential along the very prospective Coffee Creek fault. Furthermore, this marks the fourth new discovery by our team this season, further increasing confidence in our exploration methodology and providing greater understanding of the regional geology and the prospects for additional discoveries. We look forward to applying our effective and efficient exploration techniques across our land package which now totals over a million acres in the White Gold District.”

Betty Property

The Betty Property is located 58km SW of the Golden Saddle deposit and 62km SSW of the Vertigo discovery along the continuation of the Coffee Creek fault. 145km SW of Dawson City, the property is contiguous to both Goldcorp’s Coffee and Western Copper and Gold’s Casino properties to the east. The property consists of a 12km trend of anomalous gold in soils (trace to 7,288 ppb Au) associated with both intrusion-related and structurally controlled style gold targets. Historic RC drilling from the property include results(1) of 7.1 g/t Au and 209 g/t Ag over 13.7m from hole BETR12-022, 29.8 g/t Au over 3.1m from hole BETR12-012, and 1.5 g/t Au over 21.3m from hole BETR12-007.

2018 Exploration

The 2018 drill program on the Betty property consisted of 1,827m drilled over 28 holes on 6 target areas. Additional exploration work included the collection of 916 soil samples, 103km2 of LiDAR surveys and geologic mapping and prospecting. Results ranged from trace to 4.59 g/t Au, with the most significant results encountered on the Ford and White target areas.

Ford Target

The Ford target is located in the centre of the Betty property, near the crest of an E-W oriented ridge and consists of a 950m x 200m zone of strongly anomalous gold in soils ranging from trace to 1,962 ppb Au. Drilling on the Ford target consisted of 504m of shallow (<100m) RAB drilling over 6 holes covering a 220m x 160m area within the central portion of the soil anomaly and was designed to follow up on a series of interpreted E-W trending structures in the area. The most significant results were returned from the southern end of the anomaly in drill holes BETFRDRAB18-001 to 003.

BETFRDRAB18-001 – Az: 180, Dip: -60o, Depth: 100.58m

BETFRDRAB18-001 was the eastern most hole drilled in the area and returned 24.39m of 0.94 g/t Au from 19.81m depth; including 10.67m of 1.26 g/t from 19.81m depth. The hole was drilled based on an interpreted E-W oriented structure in the area based on soil geochemistry and historic geophysical surveys.

BETFRDRAB18-002 – Az: 180, Dip: -60o, Depth: 100.58m

BETFRDRAB18-002 was drilled 103m to the west of BETFRDRAB18-001 and was targeting the same interpreted structure. The hole returned 50.29m of 1.08 g/t Au from 4.57m depth; including 19.81m of 1.63 g/t Au from 10.67m depth.

BETFRDRAB18-003 – Az: 000, Dip: -60o, Depth: 100.58m

BETFRDRAB18-003 was drilled to the north from the same drill site as BETFRDRAB18-002. The hole appears to have intersected the edge of the mineralized zone intersected in holes 001 & 002 above, returning 13.72m of 0.75 g/t Au from surface.

Mineralization in all three holes consists of strongly quartz-sericite altered biotite gneiss with quartz veining and is strongly oxidized to approximately 26m depth; transitioning to disseminated pyrite at depth.  The mineralization is currently interpreted to occur along an E-SE trending, steeply dipping, structure that is open along strike in both directions and at depth. Individual assays from the Ford ranged from trace to 4.59 g/t Au, and is “gold only” with no significant geochemical associations. 

White Target

The White target is located approximately 730m downhill to the south of the Ford target and consists of a 150m x 2,000m, NE trending zone of strongly anomalous gold in soils ranging from trace to 1,266 ppb Au. Drilling on the White target consisted of 605m of shallow (<100m) RAB drilling over 7 holes covering 670m of strike length within the central portion of the soil anomaly. Anomalous gold mineralization was intersected in every hole with individual results ranging from trace to 3.61 g/t Au.

The mineralization is hosted within quartz-biotite schist and is associated with a NE-SW trending, steeply south dipping, fault zone and adjacent fractures interpreted as a splay of the Coffee Creek Fault; located 800m to the north. Individual structures are associated with silicification, brecciation, and minor quartz veining within a broader halo of pervasive sericite alteration. The gold mineralization correlates with strongly elevated arsenic and antimony; has been traced from surface to 90m depth; and is open along strike and at depth. Strong oxidation is noted up to 50m depth, with partial oxidation extending to over 90m depth. 

About White Gold Corp.

The Company owns a portfolio of 21,218 quartz claims across 34 properties covering over 423,000 hectares representing over 40% of the Yukon’s White Gold District. The Company’s flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 282,490 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold as set forth in the technical report entitled “Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada”, dated March 5, 2018, filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company’s claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. with a M&I gold resource (2) of 3.4M oz and Western Copper and Gold Corporation’s Casino project which has P&P gold reserves(2) of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu.

White Gold Corp. Extends Discovery Hole to 22.5 g/t Gold and 154.0 g/t Silver over 30.5m, New Trench Results of 66.39 g/t Gold and 302 g/t Silver over 5m, including 109.9 g/t Gold and 486.4 g/t Silver over 3m Confirm Zone Continuity on Vertigo, JP Ross

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company) is pleased to announce additional Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drill results and trenching results from the Vertigo target on the JP Ross property, Yukon, Canada. These results included a significant extension of the discovery Reverse-Air-Blast (“RAB”) drill hole which extended the mineralization at depth and encountered a deeper zone of high-grade gold. The trenching performed further defined the mineralization at Vertigo and will allow the previously identified gold zones to be extrapolated to additional drill targets.

Maps to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/

Highlights Include:

  • JPRVERRC18-013 returned 18.59 g/t Au and 188.8 g/t Ag over 6.10m from 24.38m depth, including 59.5 g/t Au and 439 g/t Ag over 1.52m from 27.43m depth. The hole also encountered an additional zone of mineralization at 44.2m depth, returning 6.82 g/t Au over 4.57m, including 18.5 g/t Au over 1.52m from 44.2m depth. Drilled as a continuation of previously announced RAB hole JPRVERRAB18-0014, the overall intercept is 22.47 g/t Au over 30.46m from surface with individual samples ranging from 2.00 to 60.4 g/t Au and trace to 388 g/t Ag.
  • 3 trenches completed, each encountering significant mineralization, including trench JPRVERTR18-002 which returned results of 66.39 g/t Au and 302 g/t Ag over 5m, including 109.93 g/t Au and 486.4 g/t Ag over 3m.
  • Trenching has identified a continuous body of high-grade mineralization that has been traced over 55m strike length which extends to a minimum of 30m depth based on drill testing conducted. This structure is one of at least 12 mineralized structures identified on the Vertigo target to date within a 1,500m x 650m target area.
  • Additional drilling, prospecting and soil sampling has also been conducted along the 14km structural trend that hosts the Vertigo discovery with the goal of identifying similar high-grade gold mineralization. Results for this exploration work will be released in due course.

“Spectacularly high-grade gold values are consistently being obtained from the Vertigo Trend and these trench results confirm our model of strong structural control. We have successfully defined the trend and dip of the gold-bearing zones only a few months after initial discovery. These results provide further understanding of the Vertigo and show that the mineralization is more extensive than previously understood.” stated Rob Carpenter, Director of the Company. “The trenching has given us key insights into the direction and orientation of the high-grade mineralization which we have leveraged to complete prospecting work outside of the main target area and we look forward to presenting these results in due course. Our 2019 program will aim to extend the geometry of these shallow gold zones with our ultimate goal being to illustrate the continuity of grade and trend. The scale and footprint of the Vertigo zones and alteration haloes suggest the system may represent the most robust gold system discovered to date in the White Gold District.”

Extension of Discovery Drill Hole

Discovery hole JPRVERRAB18-014 intersected 23.44 g/t Au and 144.75 g/t Ag over 24.38m from surface, ending in mineralization and was extended with an RC drill to 79.25m. JPRVERRC18-013 (Az: 180, Dip: -60, Depth: 24.38 – 71.63) was drilled as the continuation of previously announced RAB hole JPRVERRAB18-014. The hole returned 6.10m of 18.59 g/t Au and 188.80 g/t Ag from 24.38m depth; including 59.5 g/t Au and 439.00 Ag over 1.52m from 27.43m depth. Combined with JPRVERRAB-014 the overall intercept is 22.47 g/t Au and 154.00 g/t Ag over 30.46m from surface with individual 1.52m samples ranging from 2.00 – 60.4 g/t Au.

Additionally, there is a second zone of mineralization within JPRVERRC18-013, returning 6.82 g/t Au and 6.80 g/t Ag over 4.57m from 44.20m depth; including 18.5 g/t Au and 12.90 g/t Ag over 1.52m from 44.20m depth. A summary table of holes RAB14/RC13 is presented below:

Interpretation of the results is ongoing and there is not currently enough information to estimate true thickness of the mineralized zones.

Trenching Results

A program consisting of 3 trenches covering 63m was conducted on the Vertigo to follow up on near surface, high-grade gold mineralization intersected in previously reported RAB (JPRVERRAB18-014) and RC (JPRVERRC18-006) drill holes. All the trenches were excavated to bedrock using a low impact, heliportable, excavator. Bedrock depths ranged from approximately 1 – 1.5m depth, and continuous 1m channel samples were collected from bedrock at the bottom of the trenches. Individual assays for trench samples ranged from trace to 157.7 g/t Au and from trace to 718 g/t Ag. Highlights are summarized below:

Mineralization within the trenches consists of a series of lode style quartz veins, up to 1m thick, with disseminated to massive arsenopyrite-galena-pyrite and, locally, visible gold. These occur within a broader zone of brecciation and strong sericite alteration over 5-7m thickness and form a continuous body of high-grade mineralization that has been traced over 55m strike length and to minimum of 30m depth in RAB/RC drilling conducted in the area. Additional, subparallel zones of fracture -controlled mineralization, quartz veining, and/or brecciation extend up to 30m beyond the “high-grade core.” Overall, the mineralization is interpreted to occur along a NW striking, steeply south dipping structural zone that is open along both strike and dip. This structure is one of at least 12 mineralized structures identified on the Vertigo to date within a 1,500m x 650m WNW trending area and additional trenching and follow up diamond drilling will be conducted across all known target structures in 2019. 

JPRVERTR18-001:

JPRVERTR18-001 is located 5m west of JPRVERRAB18-014 and its continuation RC18-013, and is oriented to the south. The trench was 12m in length and returned 16.94 g/t Au and 67.9 g/t Ag over 7m from 1m down the trench; including 23.29 g/t Au and 113.7 g/t Ag from 2m down the trench.

JPRVERTR18-002:

JPRVERTR18-002 is located 6m east of Trench 1 and oriented to the south. The trench was 22m in length and returned 66.39 g/t Au and 302 g/t Ag over 5m from 4m down the trench; including a 3m core of 109.93 g/t Au and 486.4 g/t Ag from 5m down the trench. An additional zone of mineralization was also intersected 11m south of the upper intercept and returned 50.5 g/t Au and 80.6 g/t Ag over 1m from 20m down the trench.

JPRVERTR18-003:

JPRVERTR18-003 is located approximately 40m to the southeast of JPRVERTR18-003 and oriented to the south. The trench was 29m in length and returned 20.79 g/t Au and 107.1 g/t Ag over 8m from 15m down the trench; including 32.28 g/t Au and 157 g/t Ag over 5m from 18m down the trench. An additional zone of mineralization was also intersected 9m south of the upper intercept returning 7.05 g/t Au and 48.9 g/t Ag over 2m from 27m down the trench.

Vertigo Target – JP Ross Property

The Vertigo Target is on the JP Ross property which is comprised of 2,850 quartz claims covering over 57,000 hectares with at least 14 known target areas and numerous placer gold bearing creeks.  Previously announced drill results on the Vertigo target range from trace to 56.25 g/t Au over 3.05m within a broader intercept of 17.34 g/t Au over 10.67m from 3.05m depth (JPRVERRAB18-001); 45.00 g/t Au over 3.05m from 1.52m depth, within a broader intercept of 9.65 g/t Au over 15.24m (JPRVERRAB18-011); and 23.44 g/t Au over 24.37m (JPRVERRAB18-014). Additional exploration in the area also encountered multiple high-grade grab samples including 139.9 g/t, 135.6 g/t and 132.9g/t Au defining a strike length of approximately 1.5km on the Vertigo target along a 12km mineralized trend. The Vertigo Target is located approximately 25km north of the Company’s flagship White Gold property and is within 2km of an existing road accessible from Dawson City. Recently staked and acquired claims adjacent to the property are situated within a prolific placer mining camp where coarse placer gold is common.

To date, at least 12 mineralized structures are recognized on the Vertigo target over a 1,500m x 650m area, and consist of W-NW trending, steeply dipping zones of quartz veining, brecciation, and fracture-controlled mineralization with disseminated to vein-controlled pyrite-arsenopyrite-galena and, locally, visible gold mineralization. Drill testing to date has validated the mineralization over 500m of strike length which is open along strike and at depth.

White Gold erweitert Discovery Hole auf 22,5 g/t Gold und 154,0 g/t Silber über 30,5 m, neue Schürfe mit 66,39 g/t Gold und 302 g/t Silber über 5 m, einschließlich 109,9 g/t Gold und 486,4 g/t Silber über 3 m bestätigen die Kontinuität der Zone auf Vertig

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (das "Unternehmen" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298689 ) freut sich, zusätzliche Reverse Circulation ("RC") Bohrergebnisse und Grabungsergebnisse vom Vertigo-Ziel auf dem Grundstück JP Ross, Yukon, Kanada, bekannt zu geben. Diese Ergebnisse beinhalteten eine signifikante Erweiterung des Bohrlochs Reverse-Air-Blast ("RAB"), das die Mineralisierung in der Tiefe erweiterte und auf eine tiefere Zone mit hochwertigem Gold traf. Die durchgeführte Grabung definierte die Mineralisierung bei Vertigo weiter und ermöglicht die Extrapolation der zuvor identifizierten Goldzonen auf weitere Bohrziele.

Karten zu dieser Pressemitteilung finden Sie unter:  http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/

Zu den Highlights gehören:

  • JPRVERRC18-013 ergab 18,59 g/t Au und 188,8 g/t Ag über 6,10 m aus 24,38 m Tiefe, einschließlich 59,5 g/t Au und 439 g/t Ag über 1,52 m aus 27,43 m Tiefe. Das Bohrloch stieß auch auf eine zusätzliche Mineralisierungszone in 44,2 m Tiefe, die 6,82 g/t Au über 4,57 m ergab, darunter 18,5 g/t Au über 1,52 m aus 44,2 m Tiefe. Der gesamte Abschnitt, der als Fortsetzung des zuvor angekündigten RAB-Bohrlochs JPRVERRAB18-0014 gebohrt wurde, beträgt 22,47 g/t Au über 30,46 m von der Oberfläche entfernt, wobei die einzelnen Proben von 2,00 bis 60,4 g/t Au und Spuren bis 388 g/t Ag reichten.
  • 3 Schürfgräben abgeschlossen, von denen jeder eine signifikante Mineralisierung aufweist, einschließlich des Schürfgrabens JPRVERTR18-002, der Ergebnisse von 66,39 g/t Au und 302 g/t Ag über 5 m lieferte, einschließlich 109,93 g/t Au und 486,4 g/t Ag über 3 m.
  • Grabenarbeiten haben einen kontinuierlichen Körper mit hochgradiger Mineralisierung identifiziert, der über eine Streichlänge von 55 m verfolgt wurde, die sich bis zu einer Mindesttiefe von 30 m erstreckt, basierend auf durchgeführten Bohrversuchen. Diese Struktur ist eine von mindestens 12 mineralisierten Strukturen, die bisher auf dem Vertigo-Ziel innerhalb eines Zielgebiets von 1.500 m x 650 m identifiziert wurden.
  • Zusätzliche Bohrungen, Prospektionen und Bodenproben wurden auch entlang des 14 km langen Strukturtrends durchgeführt, der die Entdeckung von Vertigo beherbergt, mit dem Ziel, eine ähnlich hochgradige Goldmineralisierung zu identifizieren. Die Ergebnisse dieser Erkundungsarbeiten werden zu gegebener Zeit veröffentlicht.

"Spektakulär hochwertige Goldwerte werden konsequent aus dem Vertigo-Trend gewonnen, und diese Grabenergebnisse bestätigen unser Modell einer starken Strukturkontrolle. Nur wenige Monate nach der ersten Entdeckung haben wir den Trend und das Eintauchen der goldhaltigen Zonen erfolgreich definiert. Diese Ergebnisse liefern ein besseres Verständnis von Vertigo und zeigen, dass die Mineralisierung umfangreicher ist als bisher angenommen," so Rob Carpenter, Direktor des Unternehmens. "Der Schürfgraben hat uns wichtige Erkenntnisse über die Richtung und Ausrichtung der hochgradigen Mineralisierung gegeben, die wir genutzt haben, um die Prospektionstätigkeit außerhalb des Hauptzielgebiets abzuschließen und wir freuen uns darauf, diese Ergebnisse zu gegebener Zeit vorzulegen. Unser Programm 2019 zielt darauf ab, die Geometrie dieser flachen Goldzonen zu erweitern, wobei unser oberstes Ziel darin besteht, die Kontinuität von Grad und Trend zu veranschaulichen. Der Umfang und die Grundfläche der Vertigo-Zonen und der Änderungshalos deuten darauf hin, dass das System das robusteste Goldsystem darstellen könnte, das bisher im White Gold Bezirk entdeckt wurde.”

Erweiterung des Discovery-Bohrlochs

Das Entdeckungsloch JPRVERRAB18-014 durchschnitt 23,44 g/t Au und 144,75 g/t Ag über 24,38 m von der Oberfläche entfernt, endete in einer Mineralisierung und wurde mit einem RC-Bohrer auf 79,25 m verlängert. JPRVERRC18-013 (Az: 180, Dip: -60, Depth: 24.38 – 71.63) wurde als Fortsetzung des bereits angekündigten RAB-Lochs JPRVERRAB18-014 gebohrt. Das Bohrloch ergab 6,10 m mit 18,59 g/t Au und 188,80 g/t Ag aus 24,38 m Tiefe; einschließlich 59,5 g/t Au und 439,00 Ag über 1,52 m aus 27,43 m Tiefe. In Kombination mit JPRVERRAB-014 beträgt der Gesamtabscheidegrad 22,47 g/t Au und 154,00 g/t Ag über 30,46 m von der Oberfläche, wobei die einzelnen 1,52 m Proben von 2,00 – 60,4 g/t Au reichen.

Zusätzlich gibt es eine zweite Mineralisierungszone innerhalb von JPRVERRC18-013, die 6,82 g/t Au und 6,80 g/t Ag über 4,57 m aus 44,20 m Tiefe zurückgibt; einschließlich 18,5 g/t Au und 12,90 g/t Ag über 1,52 m aus 44,20 m Tiefe. Eine zusammenfassende Tabelle der Bohrungen RAB14/RC13 ist nachstehend aufgeführt:

Die Interpretation der Ergebnisse ist im Gange und es gibt derzeit nicht genügend Informationen, um die tatsächliche Dicke der mineralisierten Zonen abzuschätzen.

Grabungsergebnisse

Auf Vertigo wurde ein Programm mit 3 Schürfgräben über 63 m Länge durchgeführt, um die oberflächennahe, hochgradige Goldmineralisierung zu verfolgen, die in zuvor berichteten Bohrlöchern RAB (JPRVERRAB18-014) und RC (JPRVERRC18-006) durchschnitten wurde. Alle Schürfgräben wurden mit einem schlagarmen, heliportablen Bagger in den Fels gehoben. Die Gesteinstiefen liegen bei ca. 1 – 1,5 m Tiefe, und es wurden kontinuierliche 1 m Kanalproben aus dem Untergrund am Boden der Gräben entnommen. Die einzelnen Assays für Grabenproben reichten von Spuren bis 157,7 g/t Au und von Spuren bis 718 g/t Ag. Die Highlights sind im Folgenden zusammengefasst:

Die Mineralisierung innerhalb der Gräben besteht aus einer Reihe von bis zu 1 m dicken Quarzadern, die mit Arsenopyrit-Galenat-Pyrit und lokal sichtbarem Gold durchsetzt sind. Diese treten innerhalb einer breiteren Brekzienzone und einer starken Serizitumwandlung über eine Dicke von 5-7 m auf und bilden einen kontinuierlichen Körper mit hochwertiger Mineralisierung, der über eine Streichlänge von 55 m und eine Tiefe von mindestens 30 m bei den in diesem Gebiet durchgeführten RAB/RC-Bohrungen verfolgt wurde. Zusätzliche, subparallele Zonen frakturkontrollierter Mineralisierung, Quarzvenenneigung und/oder Brekzien erstrecken sich bis zu 30 m über den "hochgradigen Kern" hinaus. Insgesamt wird die Mineralisierung so interpretiert, dass sie entlang einer nordwestlich markanten, steil nach Süden abfallenden Strukturzone auftritt, die sowohl entlang des Streichs als auch entlang des Dip offen ist. Diese Struktur ist eine von mindestens 12 mineralisierten Strukturen, die bisher auf Vertigo innerhalb eines 1.500 m x 650 m WNW-Trendgebiets identifiziert wurden. Im Jahr 2019 werden zusätzliche Graben- und Folgebohrungen über alle bekannten Zielstrukturen hinweg durchgeführt.

JPRVERTR18-001:

JPRVERTR18-001 befindet sich 5 m westlich von JPRVERRAB18-014 und seiner Fortsetzung RC18-013 und ist nach Süden ausgerichtet. Der Graben war 12 m lang und lieferte 16,94 g/t Au und 67,9 g/t Ag über 7 m aus 1 m Tiefe; einschließlich 23,29 g/t Au und 113,7 g/t Ag aus 2 m Tiefe.

JPRVERTR18-002:

JPRVERTR18-002 befindet sich 6m östlich von Graben 1 und ist nach Süden ausgerichtet. Der Graben war 22 m lang und lieferte 66,39 g/t Au und 302 g/t Ag über 5 m aus 4 m Tiefe; einschließlich eines 3 m langen Kerns mit 109,93 g/t Au und 486,4 g/t Ag aus 5 m Tiefe. Eine zusätzliche Mineralisierungszone wurde ebenfalls 11 m südlich des oberen Abschnitts durchschnitten und lieferte 50,5 g/t Au und 80,6 g/t Ag über 1 m aus 20 m Tiefe des Grabens.

JPRVERTR18-003:

JPRVERTR18-003 befindet sich ca. 40m südöstlich von JPRVERTR18-003 und ist nach Süden ausgerichtet. Der Graben war 29 m lang und lieferte 20,79 g/t Au und 107,1 g/t Ag über 8 m aus 15 m Tiefe; einschließlich 32,28 g/t Au und 157 g/t Ag über 5 m aus 18 m Tiefe. Eine zusätzliche Mineralisierungszone wurde ebenfalls 9 m südlich des oberen Abschnitts durchschnitten, die 7,05 g/t Au und 48,9 g/t Ag über 2 m von 27 m unterhalb des Grabens zurückgab.

Vertigo Target – JP Ross Vorkommen

Das Vertigo Target befindet sich auf dem Grundstück JP Ross, das sich aus 2.850 Quarz-Claims zusammensetzt, die über 57.000 Hektar mit mindestens 14 bekannten Zielgebieten und zahlreichen goldhaltigen Bachläufen umfassen.  Zuvor angekündigte Bohrergebnisse im Vertigo-Zielbereich von Spuren bis 56,25 g/t Au über 3,05 m innerhalb eines breiteren Abschnitts von 17,34 g/t Au über 10,67 m aus 3,05 m Tiefe (JPRVERRAB18-001); 45,00 g/t Au über 3,05 m aus 1,52 m Tiefe innerhalb eines breiteren Abschnitts von 9,65 g/t Au über 15,24 m (JPRVERRAB18-011); und 23,44 g/t Au über 24,37 m (JPRVERRAB18-014). Bei weiteren Explorationen in dem Gebiet traten auch mehrere hochgradige Greifproben auf, darunter 139,9 g/t, 135,6 g/t und 132,9 g/t Au, die eine Streichenlänge von etwa 1,5 km auf dem Vertigo-Ziel entlang eines 12 km langen mineralisierten Trends definieren. Das Vertigo Target liegt etwa 25 km nördlich des Flaggschiffs Weißgoldgrundstücks des Unternehmens und ist nur 2 km von einer bestehenden Straße entfernt, die von Dawson City aus zugänglich ist. Kürzlich abgesteckte und erworbene Claims angrenzend an das Grundstück befinden sich in einem produktiven Placer Mining Camp, in dem grobes Placer Gold üblich ist.

Bis heute sind auf dem Vertigo-Ziel über ein Gebiet von 1.500 m x 650 m mindestens 12 mineralisierte Strukturen erkannt worden, die aus W-NW-tendierenden, steil abfallenden Zonen von Quarzadern, Brekzien und frakturkontrollierter Mineralisierung mit einer Verbreitung auf aderkontrollierte Pyrit-Arsenopyrit-Galena und lokal sichtbarer Goldmineralisierung bestehen. Bisherige Bohrversuche haben die Mineralisierung über 500 m Streichenlänge bestätigt, die entlang des Streichs und in der Tiefe offen ist.

Über White Gold Corp.

Das Unternehmen besitzt ein Portfolio von 21.218 Quarzforderungen auf 34 Grundstücken mit einer Fläche von über 423.000 Hektar, was über 40% des Weißgoldbezirks des Yukon entspricht. Das Flaggschiff der Liegenschaft White Gold des Unternehmens verfügt über eine Mineralressource von 960.970 Unzen, die mit 2,43 g/t Gold und 282.490 Unzen, die mit 1,70 g/t Gold abgezogen wurden, wie im technischen Bericht "Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada" vom 5. März 2018 dargelegt, der unter dem Profil des Unternehmens auf SEDAR hinterlegt wurde. Die Mineralisierung auf Golden Saddle und Arc geht bekanntlich auch über die Grenzen der aktuellen Ressourcenschätzung hinaus. Regionale Explorationsarbeiten haben auch mehrere andere potenzielle Ziele für die Claims des Unternehmens hervorgebracht, die an beträchtliche Goldfunde grenzen, darunter das Kaffeeprojekt von Goldcorp Inc. (TSX: G, NYSE:GG) mit einer M&I-Goldressource(1) von 4,1 Mio. Unzen und dem Casino-Projekt der Western Copper and Gold Corporation, das P&P-Goldreserven(1) von 8,9 Mio. Unzen Au und 4,5 Mrd Pfund Cu aufweist. Für weitere Informationen besuchen Sie www.whitegoldcorp.ca.

U.S. Gold Corp. is about to conclude late Autumn 2018 drilling program at the Keystone Project, Cortez Trend, Nevada

U.S. Gold Corp. is approaching completion of a 6-hole, target-test, reverse circulation drilling program of approximately 10,000 feet (approx. 3,500m)
The drill program is testing a number of important target localities that were previously inaccessible because of permitting limitations
– Drill samples are being sent to Bureau Veritas Laboratories, Reno, NV for assay and detailed geochemical analyses.  Results from all the holes are expected by mid to end January, 2019

U.S. Gold Corp. (NASDAQ: USAU – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298678  ), a gold exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the pending completion of the late Autumn 2018 drilling program at its 20 square mile, Keystone project, in Nevada’s Cortez Trend.  This drill program is testing several quality drill targets in areas of completed detailed geology, surface geochemistry, geophysics, and target synthesis.  Up to this point in time, the bulk of the Keystone project area was inaccessible to drilling exploration because of severely limited surface disturbance restrictions of about 5 acres per 4 square miles of area.  The Keystone Environmental Assessment (EA) and Plan of Operation (POO) were approved by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on September 7, and subsequent archeological surveys preparatory to road and site building were signed off by the BLM and Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (NDEP).  Access and the drill sites were constructed, and drilling the six new sites is in progress. 

Dave Mathewson, U.S. Gold Corp.’s Vice President of Exploration, states: “Our Autumn 2018 Keystone drilling program is moving along.  The weather has started to change at Keystone in Nevada and the snows have made us call a pending end to the program.  We are pleased to likely complete the drill testing of 6 target sites in this late Autumn program (see attached map: https://www.usgoldcorp.gold/keystone-autumn-drilling.jpg).  We will be eagerly awaiting the assay results and are hopeful to have all of them by mid to late January, 2019.  We will keep the market updated as soon as results are in and analyzed.”

White Gold Corp. Drills 103.9 g/t Gold & 400.0 g/t Silver over 1.52m from Surface within a Broader Intercept of 31.4 g/t Gold over 6.1m and Identifies New High-Grade Gold Zones at Vertigo Target on JP Ross Property

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company” – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298556) is pleased to announce additional Rotary-Air-Blast (“RAB”) and Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drill results from the Vertigo target on the JP Ross property, Yukon, Canada. Assays for 3 additional RAB holes and 11 additional RC holes have been received, returning additional high-grade mineralization in multiple zones. The RC drilling further validated the previously announced RAB drill results and identified new zones of high-grade gold mineralization along strike and at depth, which remain open in all directions. Drilling and other geological testing has also been conducted along the 14km structural trend that hosts the Vertigo and other similar targets.

Maps to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

Highlights Include:

  • JPRVERRC18-006 returned 3.21 g/t Au over 82.3m, including 31.4 g/t Au over 6.1m, including 103.9 g/t Au and 400.0 g/t Ag over 1.52m from surface and three deeper mineralized zones including 4.92 g/t Au over 6.1m from 36.58m.
  • JPRVERRC18-009 returned 14.23 g/t Au over 6.1m, including 38.56 g/t Au over 3.05m from surface and 6.1 g/t Au over 4.57m from 41.5m. This is the most eastern drill intercept of the gold zones on the Vertigo target and mineralization remains open along strike and at depth.
  • JPRVERRC18-003 returned 30.7 g/t Au over 1.52m from surface and 3.98 g/t Au over 7.62m, including 7.14 g/t Au over 3.05m from 65.53m.
  • A total of 17 RAB holes and 21 RC holes have been drilled on the Vertigo target, increasing strike length of high-grade mineralization to over 305m x 250m. Additional assay results are pending for RC holes within and beyond this strike length, within the newly expanded target area.
  • The target area of mineralization and alteration has been expanded to a footprint of 1,500m x 650m, hosting at least 12 individual zones and remains open in all directions.
  • Additional prospecting and geological evaluation have been conducted along the 14km trend which hosts the Vertigo discovery with the goal of identifying similar gold zones nearby. Assays are pending and will be released in due course.

“We are continuing to encounter high-grade gold mineralization at or near surface on the Vertigo target and have now encountered multiple additional high-grade zones at depth and along strike,” stated Jodie Gibson, VP Exploration. “These new results have provided further understanding of the geological model and show the potential for a large high-grade mineralized system.”

Drill Results

A total of 917.45m of RAB drilling over 17 holes was completed on the Vertigo target. Several of the RAB holes failed to reach full depth due to difficult ground conditions adjacent to or within the mineralized zones. The RAB was converted to an RC system to maximize recoveries and 1,491 m of RC has been drilled over 21 holes. Some of the RC holes are within close proximity to previously reported RAB holes to test for mineralization at depth beyond the limits of the RAB drilling, up to 100m depth, and to evaluate the geometry of the mineralized structures. The remainder step out along strike and on additional structures along the Vertigo target.

Results for 3 additional RAB holes and 11 RC holes from the Vertigo target have been received and are discussed below. Individual assays for the reported holes range from trace to 103.9 g/t Au and trace to 400.0 g/t Ag; with significant zones of alteration and anomalous mineralization noted in all holes except one. The most significant results were obtained from holes JPRVERRC18-001, JPRVERRC18-003, JPRVERRC18-06, JPRVERRC18-07 & JPRVERRC18-09.

Interpretation of the results is ongoing and there is not currently enough information to estimate true thickness of the mineralized zones.

JPRVERRC18-001 – Az: 000, Dip: -60o, Depth: 76.2m

JPRVERRC18-001 is located 109m to the SE of RAB hole JPRVERRAB-014. The hole returned a 15.24m intercept of 1.01 g/t Au from 39.62m depth. Anomalous (>100 ppb Au) zones of mineralization occur above and below the reported intercept. Additionally, this is the western most hole received to date and expands the drilled footprint of mineralization to 305m strike length.

JPRVERRC18-003 – Az: 000, Dip: -60o, Depth: 96.01m

JPRVERRC18-003 was drilled to the north from the same location as RAB hole’s JPRVERRAB18-001 & 002. The hole returned two significant intercepts including 1.52m of 30.7 g/t Au from 19.81m depth, and 7.62m of 3.98 g/t Au from 65.53m depth; including 3.05m of 7.14 g/t Au from 65.53m depth.

JPRVERRC18-006 – Az: 180, Dip: -60o, Depth: 86.87m

JPRVERRC18-006 was collared 5m to the south of JPRVERRAB18-014/RC-013 and intersected 4 zones of mineralization with additional mineralization distributed between the zones. This includes a 6.10m zone from surface averaging 31.4 g/t Au, including 1.52m of 103.9 g/t Au from surface; a 9.14m zone averaging 2.02 g/t Au from 13.72m depth; a 6.10m zone averaging 4.92 g/t Au from 36.58m depth, including 1.52m of 14.4 g/t Au from 39.62m depth; and a 3.05m zone averaging 2.92 g/t Au from 70.10m depth. Combined, the zones average 3.21 g/t Au over 82.30m from surface. Excluding the upper 1.52m of 103.9 g/t Au; the combined intercept averages 80.77m of 1.3 g/t Au from 1.52m depth. 

JPRVERRC18-007 – Az: 180, Dip: -60o, Depth: 88.39m

JPRVERRC18-07 is located 23m to the north and drilled subparallel to JPRVERRAB18-014. The hole returned two significant intercepts including 1.52m of 6.88 g/t Au from 10.67m depth, and 1.52m of 9.40 g/t Au from 30.48m depth.

JPRVERRC18-009 – Az: 180, Dip: -60o, Depth: 91.44

JPRVERRC18-009 was drilled 8m to the NE of previously reported hole JPRVERRAB18-011 and was drilled to evaluate the area at depth. The hole returned 3 zones of mineralization with additional mineralization distributed between the zones. Results include a 6.10m zone of 14.23 g/t Au from surface, including 3.05m of 38.56 g/t Au from surface; a 3.05m zone of 2.11 g/t Au from 15.24m depth; and a 4.57m zone of 6.10 g/t Au from 41.15m depth, including 1.52m of 14.80 g/t Au from 41.15m depth. Combined, the zones average 2.70 g/t Au over 45.72m from surface.

Vertigo Target – JP Ross Property

The Vertigo Target is on the JP Ross property which is comprised of 2,850 quartz claims covering over 57,000 hectares with at least 14 known target areas and numerous placer gold bearing creeks.  Previously announced drill results on the Vertigo target range from trace to 56.25 g/t Au over 3.05m within a broader intercept of 17.34 g/t Au over 10.67m from 3.05m depth (JPRVERRAB18-001); 45.00 g/t Au over 3.05m from 1.52m depth, within a broader intercept of 9.65 g/t Au over 15.24m (JPRVERRAB18-011); and 23.44 g/t Au over 24.37m (JPRVERRAB18-014). Additional exploration in the area also encountered multiple high-grade grab samples including 139.9 g/t, 135.6 g/t and 132.9g/t Au defining a strike length of approximately 1.5km on the Vertigo target along a 12km mineralized trend. The Vertigo Target is located approximately 25km north of the Company’s flagship White Gold property and is within 2km of an existing road accessible from Dawson City. Recently staked and acquired claims adjacent to the property are situated within a prolific placer mining camp where coarse placer gold is common.

To date, at least 12 mineralized structures are recognized on the Vertigo target over a 1500m x 650m area, and consist of W-NW trending, steeply dipping zones of quartz veining, brecciation, and fracture-controlled mineralization with disseminated to vein-controlled pyrite-arsenopyrite-galena and, locally, visible gold mineralization. Drill testing to date has validated the mineralization over 305m of strike length and it is open along strike and at depth.

About White Gold Corp.

The Company owns a portfolio of 21,218 quartz claims across 34 properties covering over 423,000 hectares representing over 40% of the Yukon’s White Gold District. The Company’s flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 282,490 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold as set forth in the technical report entitled “Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada”, dated March 5, 2018, filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company’s claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. (TSX: G, NYSE:GG) with a M&I gold resource(1) of 4.1M oz and Western Copper and Gold Corporation’s Casino project which has P&P gold reserves(1) of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu.

(TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298556 ) is pleased to announce that a new shallow zone of gold mineralization has been discovered on trend with the Golden Saddle deposit at the Golden Saddle West (“GS West”) target on its White Gold property, Yukon. The GS West target is located approximately 750m west of the Golden Saddle deposit, along a structural trend containing several other targets, including the high-grade Ryan’s Showing discovery announced September 6, 2018.

Step out and infill drilling at Golden Saddle has also continued to return significant results, expanding the footprint and definition of the deposit. Maps to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

The Company is also currently drilling at its JP Ross property to follow up on the high-grade Vertigo discovery as part of its fully funded regional exploration program backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC). Additional results will be released in due course, along with further results from the additional testing performed along trend with the Golden Saddle Deposit on its White Gold property including the Ryan’s Showing discovery.

Highlights Include:

  • WHTGS18D0194 intersected 6.90 g/t over 23.64m from 427.11m depth, within broader mineralization of 3.76 g/t Au over 66.2m from 385.2m depth and 2.32 g/t Au over 115.61m from 346.24m depth extending the GS Main Zone and high-grade core of the Golden Saddle deposit by 60m (14%) down-dip in the area.
  • GS West: A new shallow mineralized zone open at depth and along strike was discovered 750m to the west of the Golden Saddle deposit along the structural trend, intersecting Golden Saddle style mineralization in all three holes, including 1.92 g/t Au over 24m from 117m depth WHTGS18D0184 within broader mineralization of 2.97 g/t Au over 10m from 118m depth.  
  • WHTGS18D0193 intersected 3.95 g/t Au over 68m from 210m depth, including 5.42 g/t Au over 47.3m from 225.7m depth, and 9.55 g/t Au over 11.9m from 256m depth infilling a 70m gap in the GS Main Zone and extending mineralization towards surface. This intercept represents one of the strongest and most consistent intercepts of high-grade (>5 g/t Au) mineralization to date for the Golden Saddle.
  • WHTGS18D0191 extended the projection of the GS Main Zone approximately 200m (69%) down dip in the area, intersecting 4.87 g/t Au over 6.3m from 362m depth within broader mineralization of 1.95 g/t Au over 22.3m from 347.6m depth.
  • The Company continues to test additional targets along trend with the Golden Saddle deposit as part of the program designed to expand the existing resource on the White Gold property, with only limited historical exploration having been performed in these areas.

“We are very pleased with these results from our 2018 program on the White Gold property. Making up approximately half of our 2018 budget, the goal of this program was to grow the Golden Saddle deposit through expansion along strike and down dip as well as through the discovery of new mineralization within close proximity to the deposit.” stated Jodie Gibson, VP Exploration of the Company.  “Our program has done just that – making meaningful step outs to the deposit and also making two significant discoveries this year along trend with Golden Saddle. With only limited exploration performed in the area, we are very optimistic about the potential for additional mineralization in close proximity to the Golden Saddle deposit.”

GS West Target, White Gold Property

The GS West is located approximately 750m west from the western edge of the Golden Saddle. Drilling on the target area consisted of 3 wide spaced holes testing over 350m of strike length. The purpose of the drilling was to evaluate the area for Golden Saddle style mineralization based on a revised geologic interpretation and projection of the Golden Saddle structural system. All three holes hit Golden Saddle style alteration and mineralization with the most significant results from WHTGS18D0184. Individual assays ranged from trace to 9.7 g/t Au.

WHTGS18D0184 returned 1.92 g/t Au over 24m from 117m depth, including 2.97 g/t Au over 10m from 118m depth and 8.12 g/t Au over 1.95m from 121.05m depth. The mineralization is associated with a strongly sericite altered, coarse grained, augen orthogneiss with pyrite and molybdenite filled fractures, quartz veining, and localised brecciation. The zone occurs along the projection of the GS Main structure to the west and highlights the significant potential for additional zones of near surface mineralization in close proximity to the Golden Saddle deposit.

The newly discovered zone was targeted with a revised geologic modeling based on DIGHEM, IP-Resistivity and historic drilling. The holes were targeting the interpreted intercept of the GS Main structure with a favorable felsic gneiss unit that hosts the majority of the resource in the adjacent Golden Saddle deposit. The discovery highlights the potential for additional, new surface, zones of mineralization adjacent to the Golden Saddle. Detailed geological modelling is in progress and will form the basis of follow up drilling in 2019.

Golden Saddle Deposit, White Gold Property

A total of 8,745m of diamond drilling over 18 holes was conducted on the Golden Saddle. The drilling included infill drilling for advanced metallurgical testing; aggressive step-out drilling down dip to assess continuity of the mineralized structures to depth and a series of holes for geologic modelling and to assess the continuity of mineralized zones within the hanging wall of the deposit. Results for the infill/metallurgical holes were previously released and include 6.89 g/t Au over 32.0m from 171m depth, including 11.08 g/t Au over 18.4m from 188m depth. Results for 10 additional holes are presented in the table below. Highlights include holes WHTGS18D0191, WHTGS18D0193 and WHTGS18D0194. Individual assays for the released results range from trace to 37.5 g/t Au and reported intercepts are estimated to range from 65 – >95% true thickness.

WHTGS18D0194

WHTGS18D0194 returned 2.32 g/t Au over 115.61m from 346.24m depth, including 3.76 g/t Au over 66.23m from 385.23m depth, including 6.90 g/t over 23.64m from 427.11m depth, including 14.21 g/t Au over 10.55m of from 440.2m depth. The hole was drilled from the same site as holes 189/190/191, but at an azimuth 80o and -68o dip, and was targeting the down-dip intersection of the GS Main and a cross-cutting thrust fault that hosts lenses of ultramafic rocks (serpentinite) within the core of the Golden Saddle. This intersection appears to be a significant control on high-grade (>3 g/t Au) mineralization within the deposit, and the intercept extended the GS Main, and high-grade core of the deposit, an additional 60m down-dip in the area.

WHTGS18D0193

WHTGS18D0193 is located 360m east of WHTGS18D0194 and was drilled at an azimuth of 225o and -50o dip. The hole was designed to drill across host lithologies in the Golden Saddle, which are oblique to mineralization, for geologic modelling purposes. Additionally, the hole would test for mineralization associated with lithologic contacts in the hanging wall of the deposit and infill the GS Main at depth. The hole returned 3.95 g/t Au over 68m from 210m depth, including 5.42 g/t Au over 47.3m from 225.7m depth and 9.55 g/t Au over 11.9m from 256m depth. The intercept corresponds to the GS Main infilling a 70m gap between holes WD-070 and WHTGS17D0170.

WHTGS18D0191

WHTGS18D0191 is located on the NW portion of the Golden Saddle and was drilled to assess the down dip potential of the GS Main Zone. The hole was drilled at a 160o azimuth and -85o dip and returned 1.95 g/t Au over 22.27m from 347.63m depth, including 4.87 g/t Au over 6.33m from 362m depth. The intercept extends the projection of the GS Main approximately 200m down dip from historic hole WD-053.

Two additional holes were drilled on the same section as WHTGS18D0191, WHTGS18D0189 and 190, at dips of -65o and -75o; respectively. WHTGS18D0189 is a 75m step-out to WD-053 and returned 0.32 g/t Au over 14.6m from 227m depth. While WHTGS18D0189 and WHTGS18D0190 are lower in grade due to the intersection of less favorable schistose lithology, they confirmed the extension of the GS Main structure. WHTGS18D0190 is a 55m step-out to hole 189 and returned 3.07 g/t Au over 7.65m from 309.35m depth, including 5.1 g/t Au over 3.75m from 312.25m depth. WHTGS18D0191, detailed above, was a further 70m step-out to hole 190. Together the GS Main has been traced from surface to 490m down-dip, and is open at depth, in this area of the deposit.

Interview with MotherlodeTV and CEO David D’Onoforio

On September 6, White Gold Corp. (V.WGO) put out a press release detailing the new discoveries at it’s “Ryan’s Showing” target. MotherlodeTV recently interviewed White Gold Corp. CEO, David D’Onofrio, about this satellite deposit in the White Gold District, Yukon.

Why is this Ryan’s Showing discovery so significant?

The high grades seen at the Ryan’s Showing are very exciting – the first hole intersected 20.64 g/t Au over 6.10m with individual assays ranging from 7.07 g/t to 39.8 g/t Au. This high grade combined with the fact that the mineralization is just 83.82m from surface and 2 km from our existing Golden Saddle deposit with a 1.2 M oz high-grade resource, makes this target very interesting. This is one of many targets on the White Gold property that has the potential to be a satellite deposit to the Golden Saddle deposit. As they say, the best place to find a deposit is near an existing deposit. Furthermore, the 2km of land on trend between the Golden Saddle and Ryan’s Showing has only had very limited historical exploration. We have identified several targets in this area and are testing some this year. Lidar imagery, DIGHEM and IP-Resistivity has shown this structure to be open along strike and at depth, and demonstrates the potential for multiple mineralized structures.

What is reverse circulation drilling and why do you use it to test new targets?

Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling is a fast, light-weight and cost-effective method of generating high quality samples which are eligible for inclusion of a resource calculation. RC drilling achieves better penetration than Rotary Air Blast (RAB) drilling, but is cheaper than diamond drilling, allowing us to complete more drill holes within a given time and monetary budget. Additionally, the environmental impacts of RC drilling are minimal as the drill is mounted on rubber tracks that do not disturb the ground.

How did you select “Ryan’s Showing” for drill testing. What features did it have before you brought in the drills? (And, yes, I did read the paragraph on Ryan’s Showing. Could we go even more basic?)

Rather than jump directly to costly drilling, our team uses a systematic approach to exploration. Given our massive land package this is critical; it’s simply not feasible to drill every target on each of our properties. Ryan’s Showing had all of the positive indicators, including geophysical structure as mapped with Lidar, geochemical soil anomalies and rock samples with high-grade gold. The presence of all of these characteristics made the Ryan’s Showing a viable drill target and the drill results confirmed this. This measured approach allows us to stretch exploration dollars further and test more targets each season.

In the release, Jodie (Jodie Gibson, P.Geo. and Vice President of Exploration) mentions “satellite deposits”. How many of these have you identified and, ballpark, what size are you looking for?

There is an old adage, “The best place to make a new discovery is near an existing discovery”.  We have seen this proven to be true over and over again, and we believe this to be the case on our White Gold property. One of the key ways we’re working to grow our existing 1.25M oz gold resource is through the exploration of the land surrounding the Golden Saddle for satellite deposits. There are 5-6 targets we are actively exploring right now, with many more in the queue. With the planned infrastructure improvements, including roads built directly to the White Gold property, even deposits of 250k-500k ounces become viable that are not very close to our existing resource. There are also opportunities to share infrastructure with nearby mines, such as Goldcorp’s mine which is scheduled to be in production by 2021, making satellite deposits more economical.

At this point, are you viewing Ryan’s Showing as part of the Golden Saddle “system” or are you considering it a “stand-alone” occurrence?

Ryan’s Showing is located 2 km away from the Golden Saddle deposit but is along the same trend, and while we believe it to part of the same system, it is a completely new mineralized zone. Ryan’s Showing is characterized by particularly high grades from shallow depths, with the discovery hole returning grades ranging from 7.07 g/t to 39.8 g/t Au, some of the highest ever in the Yukon. What is also very exciting is that the system is wide open and only very limited historical work has been done between the Golden Saddle and the Ryan Showing before this year. Additional results from this year’s exploration are pending and will be released in due course.

How much longer will White Gold be able to continue with this season’s exploration program – weather? Daylight? 

Drilling was well ahead of schedule which allowed us to expand our budget and get more exploration work done than originally planned. This is well timed as it will avoid scrambling to finish the program as the days get shorter and temperatures drop. Having achieved our exploration goals we are looking forward to taking the winter to digest this season’s results and sharper our plans for next season. With that said, however, we are set up to and will continue to work as long as it makes economic sense to do so as we are following up on a number of exciting opportunities.

White Gold Makes New High-Grade Gold Discovery Along Trend with Golden Saddle Deposit Including 20.64 g/t Au Over 6.1m & 5.02 g/t Au Over 13.2m at Ryan’s Showing Target on White Gold Property, Yukon

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the "Company" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298556) is pleased to announce that high-grade gold mineralization has been discovered at shallow depths on multiple drill holes on the Ryan’s Showing Target, located along trend with the Company’s flagship Golden Saddle deposit 2 KM to the west. The drill holes were completed using Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drilling which is used by the Company to drill shallow, sub-200m holes more cost efficiently than traditional exploration. The drilling was part of the Company’s 14,500m drill program focused on expansion of the existing gold resource on the White Gold property. This program includes expansion of the Golden Saddle deposit and exploration of nearby targets such as the Ryan’s Showing. A diamond drill will be moved to the discovery site to perform additional exploration. Images to accompany this news release can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

Highlights Include:

  • Discovery hole WHTRYN18RC0001 intersected 20.64 g/t Au over 6.10m from 83.82m depth, with individual assays ranging from 7.07 g/t to 39.8 g/t Au.
  • WHTRYN18RC0002 intersected 5.02 g/t Au over 13.17 from 121.92m depth, including 9.25 g/t Au over 4.57m from 123.44m depth 100m to the west of the discovery hole.
  • Newly discovered mineralized zone is associated with an east-west oriented, north dipping, structure as shown in Lidar imagery, DIGHEM and IP-Resistivity, which remains open along strike and at depth, and demonstrates the potential for multiple mineralized structures.
  • Discovery situated on 800m x 115m soil anomaly with values from trace up to 1576 ppb Au, on trend with the Golden Saddle with the area between Ryan Showing and Golden Saddle deposit historically unexplored.  
  • Historic drill hole(1) in the area (WGRS11D0003) which was drilled subparallel to the structural trend returned 6.34 g/t Au over 6.56m from 159.44m depth
  • The Company continues to test similar targets as part of the program designed to expand the existing resource on the White Gold property.

“We are very excited about the discovery of a significant new high-grade gold zone 2 KM from the Golden Saddle. We have recognized the potential of satellite deposits near the Golden Saddle which would have the potential to greatly increase the size of the Company’s resource,” stated Jodie Gibson, VP Exploration of the Company.  “This is one of many promising targets on the White Gold property tested this year and we are looking forward to the additional results in due course.”

Ryan’s Showing Target, White Gold Property

The Ryan’s Showing is located approximately 2km west of the Golden Saddle deposit on the White Gold property and consists of gold in soil anomalies (trace to 1576 ppb Au) associated with a distinct east-west oriented, north dipping, structure visible in Lidar imagery, DIGHEM, and IP-Resistivity. One historic drill hole(1) in the area (WGRS11D0003) was drilled subparallel to the structural trend approximately 200m north west of WHTRYN18RC0001 which returned 6.34 g/t Au over 6.56m from 159.44m depth; indicating the potential for high grade mineralization in the area which has been confirmed by holes WHTRYN18RC0001 and WHTRYN18RC0002. The area along trend from the Golden Saddle deposit to the Ryan Showing has been historically unexplored. In 2018, the Company has performed some additional exploration along trend and results will be released in due course.

Discovery Drill Holes

Four drill holes totalling 681.22m were completed on the Ryan’s Showing this year. WHTRYN18RC001 returned 6.10m of 20.64 g/t Au from 83.82m depth, with individual assays in the zone ranging from 7.07 to 39.8 g/t Au. WHTRYN18RC002 is located 100m west of WHTRYN18RC001 and returned 13.72m of 5.02 g/t Au from 121.92m depth; including 4.57m of 9.25 g/t Au from 123.44m depth. The current geologic interpretation indicates that neither WHTRYN18RC003 & 004, located approximately 150m to the west and northwest of WHTRYN18002, respectively, were drilled deep enough to intersect the mineralized structure(s). The reported RC holes were drilled at a 180o azimuth and -60o dip.

Follow-up diamond drilling is planned for the target and will be commenced during the 2018 season.

Significant drill results from the Ryan Showing are detailed in the table below.

There is not currently enough information to estimate true thickness of the mineralization at this time.

The White Gold Property is located 95km south of Dawson City, Yukon. The property’s 1,792 claims totaling 34,951 hectares are 100% owned by the Company. The property has an airstrip, barge access, and a fully operational 100-person camp. The Yukon Resource Gateway Project funded by the federal and territorial governments will provide year-round road access to the property.

About White Gold Corp.

The Company owns a portfolio of 19,606 quartz claims across 30 properties covering over 390,000 hectares representing approximately 40% of the Yukon’s White Gold District. The Company’s flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 960,970 ounces Indicated at 2.43 g/t gold and 262,220 ounces Inferred at 1.70 g/t gold as set forth in the technical report entitled “Independent Technical Report for the White Gold Project, Dawson Range, Yukon, Canada”, dated March 5, 2018, filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company’s claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. (disclosed M&I gold resource of 4.1M oz) and Western Copper and Gold Corporation’s Casino project (disclosed P&P gold reserves of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu). The Company has outlined an aggressive exploration plan to further explore its properties. For more information visit www.whitegoldcorp.ca.

QA/QC

The analytical work for the 2018 program has been performed by Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd., an internationally recognized analytical services provider, at its Vancouver, British Columbia laboratory.  Sample preparation was carried out at its Whitehorse, Yukon facility. All GT Probe, RAB, RC, and diamond core samples were prepared using procedure PRP70-250 (crush, split and pulverize 250 g to 200 mesh) and analyzed by method FA430 (30g fire assay with AAS finish) and AQ200 (0.5g, aqua regia digestion and ICP-MS analysis). Samples containing >10g/t Au were reanalyzed using method FA530 (30g Fire Assay with gravimetric finish). Metallic-screen analysis may also be utilized if coarse gold mineralization is encounter (FS600).

The work was completed using industry standard procedures, including a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program consisting of the regular insertion of certified standards and blanks into the sample stream. The qualified person detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.
