Three-year drilling permit application will allow for multiple potential drill programs
Spring/Summer 2023 program to confirm mineralization and provide modern data sets for structural analysis and understanding of mineralization distribution
Calgary, AB - TheNewswire - May 2, 2023 - Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE:ASHL) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) has advanced planning and permitting of the Tabor Lease drill program. Proposed locations will test mineralization intersected by historical drilling and underground work. Conceptual targets to be tested are as follows:
Above the 125ft level to test main mineralized zone and previously identified “greenstone” facies;
Between the 125ft and 250ft historic shaft levels to test main mineralized zone and potential of high-grade intersection in the shaft; and
Below the 250ft level to test deeper mineralization intersected by historical DDH-8
Potential step-out targets to be confirmed with upcoming inversion of drone magnetics
The acquisition of modern data will provide the following:
Historic drilling is from the 50’s to 80’s and most data including core is missing; historical assays are non-compliant from a NI-43-101
Testing extent of ‘known’ mineralization both in the veins as well as “Wall Rock”
Core measurements are needed for structural understanding
Mineralogical analysis to determine timing of mineralization with comparison to structural timing
Data will be used to refine geological and structural model and plan upcoming exploration programs
Darcy Christian, President commented “We are working hard to safely provide the core data needed to highlight the potential of the Tabor Lease. A large amount of historical mineralization is documented around the Tabor shaft however the written documents are incomplete and the physical core is destroyed or missing. If successful this program could be transformational for Ashley and provide the understanding to unlock the potential of the greater area.”
