Tempus Resources drills more visible gold at Elizabeth

2022-09-26 08:40 ET - News Release

Mr. Jason Bahnsen reports


Tempus Resources Ltd. has intersected quartz veining containing visible gold in drill hole EZ-22-28, targeting the No. 9 vein at the Elizabeth gold project in Southern British Columbia, Canada.


  • Drilling has identified visible gold in several locations in quartz veining over a length of approximately two metres in drill hole EZ-22-28.
  • Tempus has completed nine holes targeting the No. 9 vein, with visible gold identified in three holes (EZ-22-19, EZ-22-20 and EZ-22-28). Assays are pending.

Tempus Resources president and chief executive officer Jason Bahnsen commented: "We now have nine drill holes into the No. 9 vein, located 120 metres northwest of the Blue vein. This is the third drill hole reporting visible gold in the core. We are encouraged by the wide zones of mineralization we are seeing in the previously unexplored No. 9 vein. Assays are pending for all nine holes."

The No. 9 vein is a previously mapped vein located approximately 120 metres northwest of the Blue vein. Some limited exploration had been performed on the No. 9 vein in the 1940s and 1950s.

Diamond drill hole EZ-22-28

EZ-22-28 intersected the No. 9 vein approximately 100 m to the north of previously announced drill holes EZ-22-19 and EZ-22-20, which contained wide zones of quartz with visible gold.

EZ-22-28 intersected quartz veining over approximately two metres from 117.5 m depth that contained multiple specks of visible gold. Nine drill holes targeting the No. 9 vein have been completed. Visible gold has been reported in three of the nine drill holes completed to date. Assays are pending on all holes.

With reference to the AIG 2015 guidance for visual reporting of massive sulphide mineralization, the company has not encountered any massive sulphide mineralization in drill hole EZ-22-28. While it is not possible to accurately estimate the percentage of visual gold present throughout the drill core, the company suggests that the percentage would be less than 0.01 per cent. The company cautions that visual observations of visible gold are not a proxy or substitute for laboratory analysis. Laboratory assays and analysis will be required to confirm the visual interpretations presented in this news release.

Competent person statement

Information in this report relating to exploration results is based on information reviewed by Sonny Bernales, who is a member of Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia, which is a recognized professional organization, and an employee of Tempus Resources.
