E79 Resources Drills More Visible Gold at the Happy Valley Gold Prospect, Victoria, Australia

 

 

 

 

 

E79 Resources Corp. (CSE: ESNR) (OTCQB: ESVNF) is pleased to provide an update on drilling at the Happy Valley Gold Prospect in Victoria, Australia.

 

Rory Quinn, E79’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Significant visible gold has been observed in two recently completed drill holes in ongoing drilling at Happy Valley. While assays are pending, and drilling continues, we feel that we are beginning to get a better understanding of the mineralization.

We have now observed visible gold in 5 out of 7 deep exploration drill holes completed at Happy Valley.”

 

Highlights

  • Visible gold observed in drill holes HVD004, HVD006 and HVD007 (in addition to HVD002 & HVD003)
  • Modelling appears to show a high-grade quartz vein extends at depth below the old Happy Valley Mine workings

 

Drill holes HDV006 & 007 have now been completed. Visible gold has been observed in HVD006, in two separate locations, and also in HVD007. These zones have been preferentially sampled and dispatched (Figures 1-10). All assay results are still to be received.

 

HVD008, drilled on the same sectional line as HVD005 but at a steeper inclination (-65o compared to -55o), intersected several zones containing minor quartz veining and occasional sulphide mineralization was observed.

 

HVD009 has been designed to target the structures midway between the two existing drill sections (HVD002-007 and HVD005-008). At the time of reporting drilling is ongoing.

 

Preliminary modelling is appearing to show the high-grade quartz vein Porepunkah extends at depth below the old Happy Valley Mine workings (Figure 12).

 

The presence of mineralization located in HVD003, and now a further intersection containing visible gold within HVD006 below the New Happy Valley Reef may indicate a steep south-easterly plunge on mineralization (Figure 13) which is consistent with historic reports.

 

Happy Valley Gold Prospect

 

The Happy Valley Prospect is situated in the south eastern portion of the Company’s Exploration Licence EL006724 in Victoria, Australia (Figure 14). It lies within a 7km long trend of historical workings. The Happy Valley Mining Center has a documented historical production of 34,200 ounces* of gold predominantly between 1866 – 1875. The Happy Valley Mining Center produced at an average grade of ~31g/t Au*, which presents E79 with an extremely attractive target. To date, only limited modern exploration has been conducted at this prospect.

 

Gold mineralization at Happy Valley occurs as quartz infill fractures and spurry formations within carbonate altered sedimentary units of Lower Ordovician age (448 – 443MA). Regionally mineralisation appears to be proximal and related to the emplacement of several major regional Devonian age granitic plutons. The gold can occur as free particles within the quartz veins and can also be also associated with sulphides, including pyrite and to lesser degrees arsenopyrite and galena.

Next Steps

  • Additional targeted drilling to test structural interpretations
  • Continued Assessment of geological and structural data collection, assessment of hydrothermal alteration to aid in defining new target areas
  • Continued application of observations from all drilling results to develop a comprehensive structural model for the Happy Valley target area

About E79 Resources Corp.

 

E79 Resources is focused on exploring for high-grade gold at its properties in the Victorian Goldfields, Australia. The Myrtleford property represents the consolidation of an entire historic gold camp with over 70 past producing gold mines on the property, where the bulk of historic mining stopped at the water table. At Beaufort, an opportunity exists to explore for a hard rock source of a major alluvial goldfield along a structure that is known to host gold in the region.
