Irving Resources Inc. (CSE:IRV) (OTCQX: IRVRF) is pleased to announce that diamond drill holes completed at the Nanko vein target have encountered high grade gold-silver vein intercepts. Nanko is one of two robust vein targets at the Omui Mine Site, part of the Company’s 100% controlled Omu Gold Project, Hokkaido, Japan,
Summary of all 2020 drill results from Nanko:
|Hole||From (m)||To (m)||Length (m)||Gold (gpt)||Silver (gpt)||Gold eq (gpt)||Silver eq (gpt)|
|Au eq (gpt) = Au (gpt) + Ag (gpt)/67 (this formula is modified from previous news releases)|
|* Previously reported in Company news releases dated August 13, 2020 and November 13, 2020
The 2021 drill campaign has recently been initiated by mobilization of Rodren’s drill crews to Japan immediately following the lifting of COVID19 travel restrictions by the Japanese government. Drillers arrived in Japan a few days ago and are going through 14-day self-quarantine. Drilling will recommence at Omu Sinter once the quarantine period is complete. The plan over the next few weeks is to complete three of the four holes at Omu Sinter to follow up on targets generated by the Company’s CSAMT geophysical surveys.
“Remarkably, all eight diamond drill holes completed at Nanko during the latter half of 2020 returned multiple vein intercepts,” commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, director and technical advisor to Irving. “To see a hit rate like this in an epithermal vein system in early stage drilling is a good sign that we have discovered a robust, well-preserved vein system at Nanko. The vein network is wide open in all directions, and we see evidence in our CSAMT data that Nanko connects with the Honpi vein network 600 m northwest. We are pleased that Omui Mine Site continues to show a positive exploration and discovery trajectory. We are also pleased that our drill team has been able to enter Japan and will soon be gearing up our 2021 drill campaign.”
The Omu region continues to have very few cases of COVID-19, and Irving continues to operate under strict Company guidelines.
All samples discussed in this news release are ½ split sawn diamond core samples. Irving submitted rock samples to ALS Global, Vancouver, Canada, for analysis. Au and Ag were analyzed by fire assay with AA finish. Overlimit samples were assayed by fire assay with gravimetric finish. Multielements were analyzed by mass spectrometry following four acid digestion. Irving staff and personnel from Mitsui Mineral Development Engineering Co., Ltd. (MINDECO) are responsible for geologic logging and sampling of core. Au equivalent is calculated by adding Au (gpt) to Ag (gpt)/67.
Quinton Hennigh (Ph.D., P.Geo.) is the qualified person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 responsible for, and having reviewed and approved, the technical information contained in this news release. Dr. Hennigh is a technical advisor and director of Irving Resources Inc.
