Silver Range Resources Ltd. samples 10.6 g/t Au from bedrock and defines an extensive gold soil geochemical anomaly at Loner Property, Nevada
17 November 2020
Silver Range Resources Ltd. is pleased to provide results from recently completed geophysical and geochemical surveys at its high-grade Loner Property in Pershing County, Nevada.
The Loner Property is located 35 km south of Winnemucca in the southern Sonoma Range and currently consists of 16 Federal Lode Claims covering historic workings and exposed low-sulphidation gold mineralization. Bedrock grab sampling to date has returned a peak value of 16.6 g/t Au while chip sampling in old workings assayed up to 25.7 g/t Au over 1.83 m. (Silver Range news release dated October 30, 2018) Prospecting during 2020 identified additional workings on the expanded claim block, returning grab samples up to 10.6 g/t Au.
A soil geochemical survey was completed over an 1100 x 400 m grid centred on the historic workings and exposed mineralization. The survey identified a strong gold-in-soil anomaly with associated arsenic response, which extends to the edge of the grid in three directions. Principle component analysis (PCA) of the soil response indicates that bedrock gold mineralization at Loner is associated with a PCA factor defined by key low-sulphidation epithermal deposit pathfinder elements (Au, Hg, Sb and As).
