- Drilling Highlights
Gold mineralization was encountered along multiple drill holes. Drilling completed on the eastern extension of the Coffee Creek fault which hosts the adjacent Coffee deposit owned by Goldcorp Inc. currently being developed as an open pit and heap leach gold mine with commercial production anticipated to begin in 2021. These results represent a new discovery on a previously undrilled target.
At the Betty Ford target, BETFRDRAB18-002 returned 1.08 g/t Au over 50.29m from 4.57m depth, including 2.24 g/t Au over 9.41m from 19.81m depth with the top 25.91m of the hole showing oxidized mineralization and additional shallow mineralization encountered in other holes along trend.
At Betty White target, gold mineralization was intersected in every hole with individual results ranging from trace to 3.61 g/t Au.
The Betty Property is located 58km SW of the Golden Saddle deposit and 62km SSW of the Vertigo discovery along the continuation of the Coffee Creek fault. 145km SW of Dawson City, the property is contiguous to both Goldcorp’s Coffee and Western Copper and Gold’s Casino properties to the east. The property consists of a 12km trend of anomalous gold in soils (trace to 7,288 ppb Au) associated with both intrusion-related and structurally controlled style gold targets.
