Ashley Gold Kicks off Induced Polarization Survey and Defines Burnthut Drill Locations

Ashley Gold Corp. (CSE: “ASHL”) (“Ashley” or the “Company”) is currently acquiring the Gradient  Induced Polarization survey at Howie to determine potential drill targets.  In addition, Ashley has preliminary drill locations defined for the Maiden Burnthut drill program.   


Darcy Christian, CEO of Ashley comments “The acquisition of IP over Howie will be a fantastic tool to understand the deeper mineralization at Howie.  We are optimistic that this survey will lead to an intelligent drill-program this year.  Burnthut continues to shine and we are ready to test this with a maiden drill program this summer.  With over 175m of mineralized potential we are optimistic this program will open-up a new discovery for Ashley.” 



  • Induced Polarization Survey Commenced  
  • Final deliverables estimated for early July 
  • Burnthut maiden drill locations defined for summer drill program

About the Howie Gradient Induced Polarization Survey 

Abitibi Geophysics has begun the survey with installation of the AB current line and have completed over two line kilometers of the survey.  Progress is on estimate and initial data quality is very good. Acquisition should conclude within the next week.   

The acquisition of data from this gradient IP survey will be extremely beneficial in our drill targeting strategy. There have been no previous ground geophysical surveys of any kind carried out on the Howie Property.  The gradient IP survey will aid in the delineation of mineralized bodies to a depth of 300 m from surface.  

The company believes the felsic intrusive dykes that have intruded gabbroic rocks on the Howie Lake property played a crucial role in the emplacement of gold enriched mineralized fluids. To date the highest-grade gold values on the Howie Property are found in highly mineralized silicified gabbroic rocks in contact with these felsic intrusive dykes that stem from the Thundercloud unit next door. (Dynasty Gold -Pelham Deposit).

About the Burnthut Drill Program 

Last week the resident geologist from Kenora Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) was onsite to sample the newly discovered Oro Grande West as well as various other showings on the property.  Multi-element assays and thin section analysis will be performed by the OGS to better understand the mineralization and timing.  Numerous gold bearing deformation zones up to 30 m in width occur in close proximity to one another over a 175 m wide corridor.  Individually a number of these prominent shear zones host numerous newly discovered high grade stacked veins. As none of these parallel zones have ever ben drilled, the company is optimistic on defining a new discovery in the area. Three holes are planned in a fan configuration to test the continuity and grade of the system at depth. Holes will be drilled at 45-degree dip and will be between 150-200m in length. 

The Burnthut Property is situated in the Central Volcanic Belt and along strike of the Goldlund and Miller gold deposits currently being explored by Treasury Metals.
