Ashley Gold Samples 82.3 g/t Au at Sakoose Property During Initial 2024 Prospecting

Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE: “ASHL”) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) has sampled the main Sakoose vein kicking of the start of the 2024 exploration season. Two samples were taken with one across the Sakoose vein and another adjacent to the vein in wall rock grading 82.3 g/t and 0.99 g/t Au respectively.  The sampling confirms the high-grade nature of the Sakoose vein with historical production averaging 11.9 g/t Au


Darcy Christian, CEO of Ashley comments “Initial scouting of the historic Sakoose area was performed to GPS locate historical shafts and workings.  As part of this our team has sampled the north-east end of a 90m open cut with excellent gold assays.  We are excited to continue to explore the area in a busy 2024 exploration season.”

Figure 1. Location of Open Cut and Samples


Historically a 90m cut was taken across the surface expression of the Sakoose vein.  Samples were taken on the northeast side of the cut where the vein begins to trend back under ground.  The 82.3 g/t Au sample was taken in a blue-grey quartz vein with the 0.99 g/t Au sampled adjacent to the blue-grey quartz in altered mafic wall rock. Samples sent to Actlabs in Dryden, Ontario for Fire Assay, Additionally the quartz vein sample had metallic screens performed due to the nuggety nature of the Sakoose vein.

About the Sakoose Property

The Sakoose Mine is located 7.5km south of Highway 17 on the Sandy Point Road providing year-round access. The mine produced from 1897 until 1902 when the milled burned down. Total production is reported at 8828 tons with average grade of 11.9 g/t Au*. Historical drilling reporting is incomplete however in 1988 a drill program was completed testing below the known workings.  Many of these intercepts showed continuation of mineralization down to 200m (Figure 2). Potential for an additional trend is seen from the SAK-18 intercept.
