TerraX winter drilling extends Sam Otto confirming mineralized zone open along strike and at depth
9 March 2018
TerraX Minerals Inc. is pleased to announce assay results from the first 5 holes (2,003 m) of its 2018 winter drill program now underway on the Yellowknife City Gold project. Two of these holes (688 m) tested the Sam Otto South extension, confirming a 2.2 km mineralized zone that remains open along strike and at depth. These holes were drilled as a follow up to our surface sampling program done in 2017. That program indicated the Sam Otto zone may extend for 3.5 kilometers south of the main zone which was drilled over 750 m of strike length in 2016. Hole TSO18-035 was collared 1.5 kilometer south of the Sam Otto main zone and intersected a broad zone of deformation and alteration (150 m wide) that contained a mineralized zone assaying 2.16 g/t Au over 27.16 m, including 1 m of 23.1 g/t Au, and 2.44 m at 7.44 g/t Au. The second hole, TSO18-037, drilled 377 m north along strike from TSO18-035 also intersected a broad deformation and alteration zone (231.5 m wide), and contained a mineralized zone assaying 1.92 g/t Au over 11.52 meters, including 2.89 g/t Au over 3.64 meters.
