Sabina Gold & Silver is pleased to announce final exploration results from 2018, including the down plunge expansion of the Nuvuyak discovery at Sabina’s 100% owned Back River gold project in Nunavut Canada.
In 2018, the company completed 22,500 m of diamond drilling including 16,500 m of drilling during the summer exploration program. The summer program largely focussed on the new high-grade discovery at Nuvuyak as well as advancing additional high priority targets for the Goose Property which includes the Llama Extension (see press release Sept 18, 2018), Hook, Umwelt, and Echo zones.
Summer program results are highlighted by the rapid expansion of the Nuvuyak discovery where a strong down plunge extension of approximately 50 m is confirmed by new results (hole 18GSE559 returning 8.17 g/t over 13.00 m and drill hole wedge cut 18GSE559W1 returning 12.41 g/t over 8.70 m (see Table 1)).
