Delta Samples up to 8.66 g/t Gold, 190 g/t Silver and 3.94% Copper at Delta-2 – Chibougamau, Quebec
CHIBOUGAMAU, QC / ACCESSWIRE / July 28, 2020 / Delta Resources Limited (« Delta » or the « Company ») (TSXV:DLTA) (OTCBB:GOLHF) (Frankfurt:6G01) is pleased to announce initial results from a rock sampling program at the Snowfall Gold Discovery (see Delta press release November 26, 2019).
In June 2020, Delta geologists with the help of a team of consultants from Laurentia Exploration and local prospectors, carried-out a bedrock mapping and sampling program coupled with boulder tracing at the Delta-2 property in Chibougamau, Quebec. Part of the program covered the site of the Snowfall Gold occurrence, a discovery made through prospecting in November 2019 (see Delta press release November 26, 2019). Two additional mineralized outcrops have been located at the site and assay results are as follows:
|Easting||Northing||Gold g/t||Silver g/t||Copper %||Material Sampled|
|*Snowfall Outcrop:||549 944||5 496 974||11.45||n/a||n/a||Composite vein-host|
|10.10||n/a||n/a||Host rock gossan|
|5.62||n/a||n/a||Host rock material|
|AB-05 Outcrop:||549 856||5 496 922||5.59||7.6||n/a||Altered basalt|
|**007 Outcrop:||549 987||5 496 790||8.66||190||3.94||Quartz-sulphide vein|
|007 Boulder:||549 980||5 496 780||2.70||47.7||n/a||Quartz-sulphide vein|
*Previously reported November 26, 2019.
**Grab sample from initial trench July 2020.
Mineralized samples have now been discovered over a north-south direction of 184 metres and 131 metres in the east-west direction. Also new at Snowfall are the high copper and silver values.
In addition to sampled outcrops, two mineralized boulders of quartz vein with trace disseminated chalcopyrite have also been discovered at the site; pointing to a nearby source to the north-northeast of the gold occurrence. Assays values of these boulders are as follows:
|Easting||Northing||Gold g/t||Silver g/t||Copper %||Material Sampled|
|AT-116.f||549 980||5 496 909||0.44||17.7||n/a||Quartz vein Boulder|
|AT-116.g||549 984||5 496 917||1.25||5.6||n/a||Quartz vein Boulder|
Michel Chapdelaine, Vice-President of Exploration commented as follows:
« This is a totally new discovery in a well-known mining camp. The target area surrounding the Snowfall Gold-Copper occurrence covers an area well over 5 square kilometers and not one historical drill hole is reported in the area. »
André Tessier, President and CEO commented as follows:
» We have a tremendous opportunity to make a significant discovery in a mature camp where multiple deposits already exist. Our team of geologists is extremely excited and motivated by this new discovery. We’re looking forward to receiving the results of our channel sampling shortly. »
As reported on July 9th, 2020, Delta is currently carrying out a mechanical trenching program at Delta-2, which includes the Snowfall Gold occurrence. Mechanical trenching at Snowfall uncovered strong and pervasive alteration zones hosting different mineralized quartz veins at the contact of the La Dauversière Pluton. Three (3) trenches were completed spaced by more than 150 meters from each other. Channel sampling work has been completed and assays are pending.
Targets at the Delta-2 project consist of magmatic-hydrothermal gold deposits related to the La Dauversiere Pluton, such as the Joe Mann past producer (1956-2007: 1.173 million ounces of gold at a grade of 8.26 g/t Au, 607,000 ounces of silver at 5 g/t Ag and 28.7 million pounds of copper at 0.25% Cu) (Source: Technical Report on the Joe Mann Mining Property dated January 11, 2016, prepared by Geologica Inc.). In addition, Delta is targeting VMS mineralization similar to the Lemoine Mine which is located 1.5 kilometre north of the property. Between 1975 and 1983, the extraordinarily rich Lemoine Mine produced 757,585 tonnes of ore grading 9.52% Zn, 4.18% Cu, 4.56 g/t Au and 82.26 g/t Ag (Source: www.sigeom.mines.gouv.qc.ca).
Analytical Protocol and Qualified Person
Geochemical analyses were performed by Laboratoire Expert Inc, Rouyn-Noranda. Gold geochemical analyses were performed by fire assay with finish by Atomic Absorption. For samples grading over 3 g/t Au, the sample was re-analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Silver and base metal assays were analyzed by aqua regia (ICP).
The quality assurance and quality control protocol include insertion of blank or standard in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate, and standard samples accredited by Laboratoire Expert during the analytical process.
Michel Chapdelaine, P.Geo. and Vice-President of Exploration at Delta Resources Limited is a Qualified Persons as defined by NI-43-101 and is responsible for the technical information presented in this press release.
