Anaconda Mining intersects 21.05 g/t over 11.5 metres and 17.41 g/t over 7.5 metres at the Goldboro Gold Project

 

 

 

 

 

Anaconda Mining Inc. (TSX: ANX) (OTCQX: ANXGF) is pleased to announce assay results from six drill holes (695 metres), as part of 11,588 metres of diamond drilling completed since October 2017 at the Company’s Goldboro Gold Project in Nova Scotia. The six drill holes (BR-18-35 to BR-18-40) targeted two specific areas of the Boston-Richardson Gold System (“BR Gold System“) as a potential site for a future underground bulk sample and to confirm the existing geological modelling in the area within, and adjacent to, an open pit outlined within a recent Preliminary Economic Assessment filed on March 2, 2018, and available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www.anacondamining.com.

 

 

Highlights of the composited assays from the Drill Program on sections 8725E and 8775E include:

 

  • 21.05 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 11.5 metres (77.5 to 89.0 metres) in hole BR-18-37;
  • 17.41 g/t gold over 7.5 metres (93.5 to 101.0 metres) in hole BR-18-39;
  • 2.73 g/t gold over 15.0 metres (106.0 to 121.0 metres) in hole BR-18-36 including 9.3 g/t gold over 1.0 metres;
  • 23.74 g/t gold over 1.5 metres (104.0 to 105.5 metres) in hole BR-18-37;
  • 3.69 g/t gold over 9.0 metres (38.0 to 47.0 metres) in hole BR-18-40 including 32.09 g/t gold over 0.5 metres; and
  • 64.08 g/t gold over 2.6 metres (44.4 to 47.0 metres) in hole BR-17-03 (previously reported*).

 

 

The holes were drilled from surface to intersect several previously modelled zones of mineralization adjacent to existing underground exploration drifts, and along cross sections 8725E and 8775E (Exhibits A, B and C). Previous exploration work and results from Historical Workings indicated the presence of high-grade mineralization in these areas, though the core was no longer available to observe the mineralization or to confirm its exact location relative to the Historical Workings.

 

 

The Drill Program was successful in confirming mineralization modelled from previous drilling as well as repeating observations of the geological setting as outlined in previous exploration efforts and in Historical Workings. The drilling also intersected several broad zones of moderate to high-grade mineralization, many of which are within or immediately adjacent to the current open pit design outlined in the recent PEA. Five occurrences of visible gold were also observed.

 

 

Select highlights of composited assays from historic drilling on sections 8725E and 8775E include:

 

  • 14.86 g/t gold over 17.5 metres (169.0 to 186.5 metres) in hole BR-08-02;
  • 16.02 g/t gold over 10.8 metres (39.9 to 50.6 metres) in hole 90-U-104;
  • 7.44 g/t gold over 14.0 metres (3.7 to 17.7 metres) in hole 89-U-05;
  • 9.51 g/t gold over 5.0 metres (65.0 to 70.0 metres) in hole BR-05-15; and
  • 5.55 g/t gold over 7.5 metres (64.0 to 71.5 metres) in hole BR-08-01.

 

 

A full table of composited assays from recent drilling is presented below as well as intervals from select historic drill holes for sections 8725E and 8775E.

 

 

“We continue to get tremendous results from our drill program at Goldboro, demonstrating the significant upside potential of what is already an attractive, profitable development project. The results of the Drill Program validate the resource model in this area of the BR Gold System and demonstrate that the mineralization has significant, double-digit grade and thickness associated with the modelled zones. Of greater consequence is the fact that the multiple, thick zones of mineralization encountered in this Drill Program fall within or near a designed open-pit outlined within the Preliminary Economic Assessment published last winter. Furthermore, the drilling adjacent to the Historic Workings provides the direct observation and information required to complete engineering designs for a future bulk sample at Goldboro, as part of ongoing work towards feasibility.”

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Paul McNeill, P. Geo., VP Exploration with Anaconda Mining Inc., a “Qualified Person”, under National Instrument 43-101 Standard for Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

 

 

All samples and the resultant composites referred to in this release are collected using QA/QC protocols including the regular insertion of standards and blanks within the sample batch for analysis and check assays of select samples. All samples quoted in this release were analyzed at Eastern Analytical Ltd.(“Eastern”) in Springdale, NL, for Au by fire assay (30 g) with an AA finish.

 

 

 

Samples analyzing greater than 0.5 g/t Au via 30 g fire assay were re-analyzed at Eastern via total pulp metallic. For the total pulp metallic analysis, the entire sample is crushed to -10mesh and pulverized to 95% -150mesh. The total sample is then weighed and screened to 150mesh. The +150mesh fraction is fire assayed for Au, and a 30 g subsample of the -150mesh fraction analyzed via fire assay. A weighted average gold grade is calculated for the final reportable gold grade.  Anaconda considers total pulp metallic analysis to be more representative than 30 g fire assay in coarse gold systems such as the Goldboro Deposit.

 

 

Reported mineralized intervals are measured from core lengths. Intervals are estimated to be approximately 80-100% of true widths of the mineralized zones, with the exception of some intervals reported from historical drill holes where the drill trace crosses to the northern limb of the host fold structure near the bottom of the hole.  In these areas reported intervals may be less than 50% of true width.

 

 

*Hole BR-17-03 was previously reported in a press release on July 27, 2017. The reported results were based on fire assay alone.  Since then the same sample pulps were reprocessed using total pulp metallic analysis and it is these values that are reported in this press release to be consistent with all other gold analysis conducted by the Company since October of 2017.

 

 

A version of this press release will be available in French on Anaconda’s website (www.anacondamining.com) in two to three business days.
