Sabina Gold & Silver reports continued high grade results at Nuvuyak discovery
6 August 2019
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp is pleased to announce the final results from the remaining four drill holes from this year’s spring drilling program at its 100% owned Back River Gold Project in Nunavut Canada. Three drill holes targeted the emerging Nuvuyak gold zone while the fourth drill hole targeted a section of the Hook gold structure, just west of the Goose Main deposit (see Figure 1 in the full release).
Results from drill hole 19GSE566W2, a wedge hole off previously announced hole 19GSE56 (July 18, 2019), continue to return multiple high grade values over significant widths within a broadly mineralized envelope of iron formation at Nuvuyak. Significant values, within a +150 m section of alteration and mineralization include 10.15 g/t Au over 6.95m, 14.70 g/t Au over 9.25m and 10.52 g/t Au over 8.60m. Drill hole 19GSE566W2 is wedged off 40 m up-plunge of the portion of high grade intercepts encountered in previously released drill hole 19GSE566 which returned 18.71 g/t Au over 3.5 m and 10.04 g/t Au over 18.00 m. See Table 2 for full listing of significant assays over the broader interval of iron formation.
An additional two drill holes, 19GSE564 and 19GSE568, were completed at the Nuvuyak target in a down plunge section of the gold structure. This drilling is located 320 m down plunge from wedge hole 19GSE566W2 giving the Nuvuyak gold zone a tested strike length of 370 m (Figure 2). Holes 19GSE564 and 19GSE568 were designed to target a down plunge and down dip extension of the discovery. The drill holes were successful in expanding the known zone which remains open in all directions. Drill hole 19GSE564 extended mineralization vertically down the west limb of the mineralized antiformal structure by over 100 m (returning 11.97 g/t Au over 2.85 m). Drill hole 19GSE568 targeted down plunge of the discovery hole, 18GSE545, returning 8.36 g/t over 4.10 m from a strong zone of alteration and mineralization.
