Auryn advances high-grade gold targeting at Committee Bay
20 May 2020
Auryn Resources Inc. is pleased to announce a significant advancement in targeting high-grade gold mineralization at the 100% owned Committee Bay gold project in Nunavut.
Auryn’s technical team analyzed recent and historical drill results from across the 300-kilometer greenstone belt and differentiated the geophysical conductivity responses between high-grade and low-grade mineralization. This led to revisiting a number of high potential targets across the belt that are characterized by strong gold-in-till anomalies and high-grade gold in outcrop or boulder trains, where historical drilling has not yet explained the extensive high-grade occurrences. In addition, undrilled targets were identified that have both high-grade boulder and outcrop rock samples as well as conductivity responses that are consistent with observed high-grade mineralization in other areas of the belt.
