Dalradian intersects 1.05 metres at 53.64 g/t gold from infill drilling at Curraghinalt

 

 

 

 

 

Dalradian Resources Inc. (TSX:DNA) (AIM:DALR)  is pleased to report results from 16 drill holes from infill drilling at the Curraghinalt gold deposit in Northern Ireland. The drill program is ongoing, with five drill rigs working on surface and two drill rigs underground.

 

 

Highlights

 

  • 44 m of 318.00 g/t gold from the Bend vein in hole 17-CT-445
  • 34 m of 216.00 g/t gold from the No. 1 vein in hole 17-CT-452
  • 14 m of 45.54 g/t gold from the T17 vein in hole 17-CT-459
  • 73 m of 49.80 g/t gold from the V55 vein in hole 17-CT-459
  • 86 m of 41.85 g/t gold from the 106-16 vein in hole 17-CT-459
  • 05 m of 53.64 g/t gold from the Mullan-S vein in hole 17-CT-470
  • 70 m of 73.89 g/t gold from the Crow vein in hole 17-CT-471         

 

 

Patrick F.N. Anderson, Dalradian’s President and CEO, commented:

 

“These high-grade infill drill results support delivery of a positive resource update in Q2 2018, which will then feed into an updated feasibility study planned for Q3 2018.”

 

 

Details of drilling at Curraghinalt
 

Results are being reported for 16 drill holes for a total of 6,798 metres. 13 holes were drilled from underground and are in the central part of the Curraghinalt deposit (see plan map and cross section at http://www.dalradian.com/news-and-events/news-releases/news-releases-details/February-20-2018-News-Release-Figures). These holes were drilled at varying intervals targeting some of the veins included in the last mineral resource estimate (see the Company’s Technical Report, as defined below, dated January 25, 2017) in zones where increased drill hole density will likely result in the conversion of resource ounces from the Inferred to the Indicated category.

 

 

These intercepts correlate with and improve the current geological model with respect to the continuity and smoothness of the individual vein wireframes.

Notes

 

  • True widths vary depending on the vein zone intersected but generally average 80% of the down hole interval
  • Intercepts are calculated using samples greater than or equal to 2.0g/t Au, and contain no more than 1.0m of internal dilution
  • Only those mineralized intercepts exceeding 10 gram-metres have been included in the table. Accordingly, there are two drill holes, 17-CT-458 and 17-CT-460, that are not listed in the above table even though they intercepted the projected veins

 

 

Qualified Person

 

 

Eric Tremblay, P. Eng., Chief Operating Officer and Greg Hope, MSc, MAIG, Exploration and Geology Manager, are the Qualified Persons who supervised and reviewed the preparation of the technical data in this news release.

 

 

Drill core was halved with samples (averaging between 0.25 m and 0.50 m in mineralized material and up to 1 m in wall rock) submitted to ALS Laboratories in the Republic of Ireland. Rigorous quality assurance and quality control procedures, including the use of blanks, standards and duplicates, identified no material issues. Core samples were analyzed by a 50 gram gold fire assay with either an atomic absorption, or a gravimetric finish for samples initially reporting over 100.0 g/t gold.

 

 

ALS Laboratories is accredited by the Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB) to undertake testing, including for Ores and Minerals (INAB P9 703), as detailed in the Schedule bearing the Registration Number 173T, in compliance with the International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 2nd Edition “General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories”.
