Jet Gold Corp. – Big Hammer Completes Phase-one Drill Plan
VANCOUVER, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Jet Gold Corp. (TSXV: JAU) today announced the completion of the phase-one drilling program at its
Big Hammer property near Terrace, BC. Mineralized core from the
830-meter Big Hammer gold drilling program has been shipped to AGAT
Laboratories’ facility in Missassuga, ON for assay. Results are
expected by mid-November.
Trench samples at the original “380″ roadcrop with up to 93 g/t gold
(see September 28(th) press release) were followed up in October by seven close-spaced drill
holes (20-meter centers) and four step-out holes at the Big Hammer gold
property. Quartz -sulfide-telluride vein and shear mineralization
within quartz-chlorite alteration envelopes the low-angle “380 Fault”
at Big Hammer, extending 260 meters horizontally and at least 120
meters down structural dip from outcrop.
Five new surface grab samples 200 meters east of the original “380″
roadcrop returned the following results – Gold: 29.9 g/t, 20.9 g/t,
17.7 g/t, 9.9 g/t and 0.2 g/t; Silver: 429 g/t, 284 g/t, 335 g/t, 174
g/t and 15.7 g/t; Tellurium: 314 g/t, 213 g/t, 145 g/t, 104 g/t and 5.2
Donald G. Strachan, JetGold’s Consulting Geologist and QP at Big Hammer,
says ” I am grateful for the geologic continuity of structure,
alteration and mineralization seen in every hole to date, and am
confident this structural horizon will be extended by future drilling
phases. Banded quartz-sulfide-telluride vein intercepts up to one
meter are present in seven of the 11 holes drilled through the
quartz-chlorite-flooded 380 Fault. Multiple quartz-sulfide-telluride
vein intercepts within the 380 Fault were encountered by four of the 11
holes. Substantial vein thicknesses and grades are reasonable
expectations along the 380 Fault at Big Hammer.”
Further information, including assay results, will be provided upon
receipt from AGAT.
