Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE: “ASHL”) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce initial results of the Tabor Lake high resolution magnetic survey. Data quality is good and outlines multiple magnetic responses that show similar character to the mineralized Tabor Lake anomaly. Quartz Feldspar Porphyry outcrops mapped in the 1980’s correlate well to the first vertical derivative of the new magnetic survey. In addition, several structural lineaments are interpreted across the area that correlate with known vein systems that have been historically assayed showing presence of gold mineralization.
Update on Drilling Program
Permitting for the Tabor Mine drill program is under way with drill date expected to be in June. The intent of this program will be to confirm mineralization between the 125 and 250 foot levels of the historical underground workings. In addition, sampling of the quartz feldspar porphyry “wall rock” outside of the vein system will be critical to understand bulk tonnage potential. Previous resampling within the historical workings shows a non-compliant average grade of 0.59 g/t Au within samples described as “wall rock”.
Darcy Christian, President commented “I am very excited to move our understanding of the Tabor Mine mineralization forward with our first drill program. If the upcoming program confirms mineralization in the wall rock and historical vein grades of up to 838 g/t Au, it could be quite a compelling story for Ashley and the Tabor property”
Application for drilling is underway and tendering for drilling contractors is commencing. The Tabor Lake Mine is located on a Mineral Lease which should allow for a timely turn around of exploration permits. Drilling is expected to commence in June subject to permitting and rig contract.
The Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this press release is Shannon Baird, P.Geo, Exploration Manager of Ashley Gold Corp.
