Ashley Gold Discovers New Vein at Alto-Gardnar Assaying 106 g/t Au

Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE: “ASHL”) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) is please to announce initial sampling on the Alto-Gardnar Property.  A previously unsampled vein was assayed returning 106 g/t Au and 54.2 g/t Au.  In addition, a historic open cut was sampled with assays returning 0.46 g/t Au up to 5.47 g/t Au.  

Darcy Christian, CEO of Ashley comments “This was our first prospecting trip out to Alto-Gardnar and it did not disappoint. 2006 sampling shows a potential increase in grade and continuity to the southwest with our new sampling confirming this.  We are currently out at Alto focusing on the southwest looking for additional indications to support this.”

Figure 1. Location of Open Cut and Samples


Historically a 350m area was stripped at Alto-Gardnar with the most recent sampling performed by Gossan Resources in 2006.  Figure 2 shows the newly discovered vein samples taken just north of Gossan samples.  All samples were white-grey quartz with fine chlorite and tourmaline partings.  The quartz is mineralized with up to 1% fine pyrite with trace chalcopyrite and sphalerite.  Visible gold is prevalent when chalcopyrite and sphalerite are present. Samples were sent to Actlabs in Dryden, Ontario for Fire Assay, Additionally the new vein samples had metallic screens performed due to the nuggety nature of the vein mineralization.
