Vtem Conductor Leads To Large New Surface Discovery At Garibaldi's E&L Project As Drilling Nears
|Vancouver, British Columbia, July 27, 2017 - Garibaldi Resources TSX.V: GGI) (the "Company" or "Garibaldi") is pleased to report that crews at the company's 100%-owned E&L Project at Nickel Mountain in the heart of the Eskay Camp have made an important new surface discovery following up on the first of four major VTEM conductor targets.|
Widespread pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite mineralization has been identified on surface in gabbroic rocks that outcrop over a broad area at previously unexplored "Anomaly A", approximately 6 km north-northeast of the historic E&L nickel-copper-rich mineralized zones where drilling commences shortly.
Geologists have not yet sampled the "hot zone" of the conductor, where it is strongest, but initial field examinations covering ground on the periphery of the conductor are extremely encouraging:
The top of the strong, broad conductor beneath E&L "Anomaly D" is estimated to be at a depth of 140 meters, approximately 20 meters below the deepest hole drilled by Silver Standard in the 1960's. A total of 12 shallow holes defined a nickel-copper-rich massive sulphide system extending 175 m east-west, highlighted by DDH-4-1966 which returned 37.8 meters grading 1.3% nickel and 0.79% copper with 5.9% nickel and 1.7% copper over 2.74 meters near the bottom of the hole (see July 17 GGI news release).
Regoci adds, "The 'Anomaly A' surface discovery featuring mineralized gabbro is extremely exciting and we look forward to much more mapping and sampling there. Successful ground-truthing of that VTEM target also suggests that the E&L nickel-copper-rich magmatic massive sulphide occurrence is indeed part of a much larger system than originally outlined from the only surface drill program ever carried out at the property in the 1960's. We're eagerly anticipating the start of drilling at the E&L as this has all the earmarks of a game-changing discovery for our shareholders."
Anomalies "B" and "C" are also being investigated. The north-northeast alignment of the four major anomalies ("A" through "D") indicates a potential corridor prospective for a cluster of deposits.
