Anaconda Mining intersects 752.54 g/t gold over 0.5 metres and 56.67 g/t gold over 1.0 metre; initiates further drilling to test high-grade mineralized zone

 

 

 

 

 

Anaconda Mining Inc. (TSX: ANX) (OTCQX: ANXGF) is pleased to announce assay results from four drill holes (1,900 metres), as part of 9,753 metres of diamond drilling completed since October 2017 at the Company’s Goldboro Gold Project in Nova Scotia. The four drill holes (BR-17-12 to -13 and BR-18-24 to -25) targeted cross section 9250E located near the centre of the Goldboro Deposit, within both the East Goldbrook andBoston-Richardson Gold Systems (Exhibit A and B). 

 

 

The Drill Program has successfully extended known mineralization down-dip approximately 100 metres within the EG Gold System at cross section 9250E. The drilling also extended three zones of mineralization within the southern limb of the fold structure that were recently discovered east of section 9250E and are above previously modeled zones of the EG Gold System as reported on April 5, 2018(Exhibit A and B). These three new zones have expanded the overall width of the Goldboro Deposit from 200 metres to 350 metres and expanded the strike of the deposit, eastward by 100 metres (Exhibit A). Drilling also intersected several broad zones of mineralization within the EG Gold System indicating that broad mineralized zones, like those found in the BR Gold System, can be found within the EG Gold System. At depth, mineralized intersections within the BR Gold System successfully extended the depth of the deposit in section 9250E by 150 metres to approximately 500 metres (Exhibit B).

 

 

Highlights of recent assays from the Drill Program on section 9250E include:

 

  • 752.54 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 0.5 metres (145.0 to 145.5 metres) in hole BR-18-25;
  • 56.67 g/t gold over 1.0 metre (132.5 to 133.5 metres) in hole BR-18-25;
  • 17.00 g/t gold over 1.0 metre (39.0 to 40.0 metres) in hole BR-18-25;
  • 6.55 g/t gold over 2.5 metres (84.5 to 87.0 metres) in hole BR-18-24;
  • 12.29 g/t gold over 1.0 metres (321.0 to 322.0 metres) in hole BR-17-13; and
  • 49.61 g/t gold over 0.5 metres (342.8 to 343.3 metres) in hole BR-17-12.

 

 

Highlight assays from historic drilling on section 9250E include:

 

  • 4.36 g/t gold over 9.0 metres (127.0 to 136.0 metres) in hole BR-08-20A, including 9.02 g/t gold over 1.0 metre;
  • 2.72 g/t gold over 20.0 metres (118.5 to 138.5 metres) in hole BR-08-21;
  • 6.43 g/t gold over 1.5 metres (144.5 to 146.0 metres) in hole BR-08-20A;
  • 5.97 g/t gold over 1.5 metres (89.5 to 91.0 metres) in hole BR-08-21; and
  • 5.19 g/t gold over 1.5 metres (69.5 to 71.0 metres) in hole BR-08-20A

 

 

A full table of composited assays is presented below.

 

 

“We continue to receive exciting results from our Goldboro drill program. To date, we have been able to demonstrate the continuity of mineralization within the overall deposit structure and proven that the mineralized zones exist along strike, down-dip and down the plunge of the current resource model. The results encountered in section 9250E are typical of those expected in this section, with the added bonus of broader zones of mineralization within the EG Gold System.  With the success of the drill program to date, we have extended the current drill program to begin testing new concepts, such as a relationship between faults and broader, high-grade zones as encountered in section 9100E, while continuing to move the project towards more advanced feasibility studies. Drill results to date indicate the potential for further deposit expansion and an extended project life.”

~Dustin Angelo, President and CEO, Anaconda Mining Inc.

 

 

Anaconda has initiated a further 2,000 metres of diamond drilling to follow up on the success of the Drill Program to date. The primary purpose of the additional meterage is to drill adjacent to section 9100E from which the BR Gold System contained broad zones of high-grade mineralization associated with displacement of the existing deposit along a fault system. The Company will test the hypothesis that it has encountered a new, fault related setting for gold mineralization within the Goldboro Deposit as has been observed in similar deposits within the Victoria Gold Fields of Australia.

 

 

As reported on April 19, 2018, drill results from section 9100E included the following highlights:

 

  • 11.27 g/t gold over 13.5 metres (201.0 to 214.5 metres) in hole BR-18-22, including 15.63 g/t gold over 1.4 metres and 44.33 g/t gold over 2.5 metres;
  • 4.13 g/t gold over 20.5 metres (324.5 to 345.0 metres) in hole BR-18-23, including 9.93 g/t gold over 7.5 metres and 79.34 g/t gold over 0.5 metres;
  • 10.55 g/t gold over 6.1 metres (223.0 to 229.1 metres) in hole BR-18-22, including 18.78 g/t gold over 3.1 metres;
  • 5.10 g/t gold over 9.6 metres (116.0 to 125.6 metres) in hole BR-18-22, including 25.82 g/t gold over 1.5 metres;
  • 7.22 g/t gold over 6.5 metres (310.5 to 317.0 metres) in hole BR-18-23, including 16.00 g/t gold over 2.0 metres; and
  • 9.29 g/t gold over 2.1 metres (420.6 to 422.7 metres) in hole BR-18-21.

 

 

As part of the extended drill program, Anaconda will allocate approximately 500 metres to infill certain areas of the Mineral Resource that form part of the Company’s planned underground bulk sample, which is expected to occur later in 2018.

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 Goldborodeposit.

 

 

Reported mineralized intervals are measured from core lengths. Intervals are estimated to be approximately 90-100% of true widths of the mineralized zones, with the exception of historical intervals below 100 metres within hole BR-08-20A which are estimated at 50% of true width.

 

 

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