Jet Gold Corp. – Drilling program committed for Big Hammer
Equipment mobilized & activated for immediate start
VANCOUVER, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Jet Gold Corp. (TSX-V: JAU) today announced the commencement of drilling on their Big Hammer gold
property near Terrace, BC. The company has retained Orofino Drilling
Ltd. to manage a drilling program of up to 3500m and drilling equipment
is now being moved on-site. Donald G. Strachan (M.Sc, CPG, QP),
JetGold’s Consulting Geologist, will oversee and direct the program.
Recent positive assay results (see September 20, 2011 release) on Big Hammer’s best exposed 380 vein have triggered the drilling
program. The number of assays with gold values above 10 grams per tonne
– some as high as 93 grams per tonne – indicated grades of gold that
warranted further and immediate drilling and exploration.
The 380 vein, which produced the high grade values, is a low-angle
quartz sulfide-telluride vein that ranges up to approximately 1.5
meters in thickness with up to 2.0 meters of mid and low-grade. The
drilling program will focus on the strike and dip of this vein, as well
as probable shoots along this vein, to determine the extent of economic
Drilling Program Summary
The best grade mineralization now in sight in both the high-graded and
representative channeled roadcrop and trenchcrop samples, if continued
at underground along strike and dip, is suggestive of
underground-mineable grades. The Phase One drilling pattern is
designed to infer this mineralization to depth and along strike to
develop tonnage. Phase One will consist of a series of closely spaced,
shallow development grid drill holes at 20-meter spacings followed by a
series of wider-spaced exploration/development holes at wider spacings.
The low-angle, dilational thickness and continuity of these multiple,
well-mineralized veins are the subject of the Phase One drill holes.
The geologic character of these veins implies continuity and
multiplicity between whatever structural and lithologic controls are
present at Big Hammer. In essence, we have shown that
gold-silver-tellurium mineralization is intense along the exposed
portions of these structures.
The 380 vein is only one of several low-angle veins seen in the few
roadcuts made so far on this large property. The other roadcrops
higher up the mountain (at 615 and 630 elevation) are also mineralized
with gold, silver and tellurium, and represent additional exploration
targets. Trenching will be conducted on these higher elevation veins to
further expand and provide new drill targets.
