Hanstone Announces an Expanded Mineralized Zone at the Doc Property in BC’s Golden Triangle, Reporting 1.03 g/t Au over 35.92 meters including 12.14 g/t Au over 1.41 meters

 

 

 

 

 

Hanstone Gold Corp. (TSX-V: HANS) (FSE: HGO) is pleased to provide an update on recently received gold assays results from the 2021 drilling program completed in September, at the company’s 100% owned DOC property located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle Mining District.   The Golden Triangle has been reported to account for an estimated 44% of the $422 million in mineral exploration expenditures in British Columbia, currently hosting three of Canada’s largest gold mines.

 

The program consisted of 23 diamond core drillholes totaling 2,852.04 meters. The drill program focused on investigating and verifying historic drill-indicated gold mineralization, while expanding the known mineralization zones along strike.

 

Drilling result highlights from the 2021 drilling program include:

  • Hole DC-21-025 intersected 5.83 m grading 2.86 g/t Au, 23.25 g/t Ag and 1,721.20 ppm Cu including 3.32 m grading 4.89 g/t Au, and 38.77 g/t Ag, and 1920.73 ppm Cu 
  • Hole DC-21-026 intersected 6.47 m grading 1.13 g/t Au, and 4.15 g/t Ag and 17.59 m grading 0.46 g/t Au and 2.54 g/t Ag including 6.14 m grading 1.07 g/t Au and 5.47 g/t Ag 
  • Hole DC-21-027 intersected 1.18 m grading 24.67 g/t Au, and 65.20 g/t Ag, and 35.92 m grading 1.03 g/t Au, and 4.44 g/t Ag including 1.41 m grading 12.14 g/t Au, and 49.10 g/t Ag

DC-21-027 intersected low-grade mineralization over a 35.92 m within a fault zone with moderate to strong hematite and sericite alteration, and 1-5 cm quartz veining. The mineralization style indicates a potential continuation of the DOC epithermal vein system, heavily influenced by structure. The hole confirms mineralization from a historic hole and expands the mineralization footprint.

 

Based on the results from DC-21-025 to DC-21-027, further investigations into the area will be completed in 2022, including prospecting, mapping, with potential for follow up drilling. Another focus for the 2022 will be the location in and around the area to which DC-20-04 to DC-20-06 intersected high-grade mineralization reported in a previous release. The focus will be to use a combination of geophysics, along with a structural interpretation of the area to focus on a potential splay off the main DOC vein system. The geophysics and structural interpretations will aid in determining the future drilling plans in the area for 2022.

 

An updated 2021 diamond core drillhole collar map can be found in figure 1, and a map location of DC-20-04 to DC-20-06 can be found in figure 2.
