WHITE METAL 3D-IP GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY CORRELATES WITH NEW ELLEN ZONE GOLD DISCOVERY AND PROVIDES MULTIPLE TARGETS FOR PHASE 2 DRILLING PROGRAM AT TOWER STOCK GOLD PROJECT, ONTARIO
White Metal Resources Corp. has received the final report in regards to the DasVision 3-D induced polarization survey completed by Abitibi Geophysics on the Tower Stock gold project. The property, which until now has not seen any exploration activity for more than eight years, is located approximately 40 kilometres west-northwest of the port city of Thunder Bay, Ont., and covers approximately 1,968 hectares.
The 3-D IP survey revealed a number of anomalies with the most notable anomaly, TS-02, encompassing the area of the newly discovered Ellen zone (see company news release dated April 20, 2021). This anomaly exhibits a broad arcuate shape covering approximately 750 by 300 metres and appears to flank the western edge of the Tower Mountain intrusive complex (TMIC). It can be traced as far north as the southeast end of the U-V zone and encompasses the A zone and the Bench zone to the south and east, respectively. The Ellen zone appears to flank the western edge of the IP anomaly and results returned from drill hole TM-21-94 and a number of gold-bearing surface samples suggest a direct correlation with gold mineralization. This anomaly also correlates with a high gold index according to the interpretation completed by Abitibi (gold index equals (chargeability times resistivity) divided by 1,000). The TS-02 anomaly is ranked as a high-priority target due to the inclusion and proximity of known gold occurrences and will require extensive surface work and follow-up drilling.
Another high-priority anomaly, TS-04, is located about 300 metres northeast of the eastern end of the U-V zone, exhibiting a combination of high changeability/resistivity and is traceable for about one kilometre to the southeast. The northern extent of the anomaly underlies the area of historical diamond drill hole TM-02-05, completed by ValGold Resources Ltd., which intersected six metres grading 2.4 grams per tonne gold.
Michael Stares, president and chief executive officer of White Metal, commented: "We are very pleased with the outcome of the 3-D IP survey; it has added to our already expanding data base and will give us additional targets for follow-up in order to explain the sources of the anomalies. It is particularly exciting to see that one of the anomalies, TS-02, covers the area of the new Ellen zone and I look forward to following up on this particular anomaly. I am very confident that our exploration work will continue to enhance the property and advance our understanding of the new and known gold targets within the Tower Stock gold project."
In fall 2020, White Metal personnel prospected the Ellen zone area, which is largely covered by overburden, and returned anomalous gold values in rock grab samples ranging from weakly anomalous (greater than 50 parts per billion Au) to 1,300 ppb Au (1.3 g/t Au). Discovery drill hole TM-21-94 was set up approximately 70 metres west of the surface rock grab samples and drilled in a northeast direction at a 60-degree dip. The dip and strike of the Ellen zone is not precisely known but based on historical data and information, it is thought that this zone may strike roughly in a southeast-northwest direction.
