P2 Gold Drilling at BAM Intersects 1.38 g/t Gold over 80.0 meters






P2 Gold Inc. (TSX-V:PGLD) (OTCQB:PGLDF), reports results from 11-drill holes from the 2022 Drill Program at its gold-copper BAM Project located in the Golden Triangle in northwest British Columbia.


“We wrapped up the BAM 2022 Drill Program in late September after a very successful exploration season with 13,958 meters drilled in 95 holes,” commented Joe Ovsenek, President and CEO of P2. “An additional 59 holes are in the lab awaiting assaying, which we expect to release over the next couple of months. We believe BAM is on its way to becoming the next significant discovery in the Golden Triangle.”


BAM Project Drill Results


Select drill results (see Table 1 below for drill results) from holes BAM-032 to 037, 39, 40, 46, 47 and 49 drilled at the BAM Project include:

  • Hole BAM-032 intersected 1.30 g/t gold over 59.05 meters, including 15.0 meters grading 3.64 g/t gold;
  • Hole BAM-034 intersected 1.59 g/t gold over 36.5 meters, including 7.0 meters grading 5.63 g/t gold; and
  • Hole BAM-037 intersected 1.38 g/t gold over 80.0 meters, including 12.2 meters grading 2.43 g/t gold.


Drill holes BAM-032 to 037, 39, 40, 46, 47 and 49 were drilled on Section D running east-west through the center of the Monarch Gold Zone. Of these holes, BAM-032 to 34 were collared in mineralized conglomerate to the east of an interpreted carbonate horst in the center of Section D with the higher-grade gold intercepts located closer to the structure on the eastern margin of the carbonate horst. BAM-037, 038 and 039 and BAM-046, 047 and 049 were collared in mineralized siltstone to the west of the interpreted carbonate horst with the higher-grade gold intercepts located closer to the structure on the western margin of the carbonate horst. Holes BAM-35 and 036 were collared within the interpreted carbonate horst and did not encounter gold mineralization within the carbonate.


A plan map and sections for drill holes BAM-032 to 037, 39, 40, 46, 47 and 49 of the 2022 BAM Drill Program are available here.


The focus of the 2022 BAM Drill Program has been to find the limits of the epithermal surface mineralization and provide geologic information to aid in the interpretation of the airborne and ground geophysical surveys. This interpretation will be essential in discovering the source of the surface epithermal zone and any associated high grade and/or porphyry mineralization.


This latest drilling has continued to define several structures that were active either during and/or after the mineralization event. Gold grades intercepted by the drilling generally increase towards these structures suggesting they are potentially related to a feeder system. In addition, it is anticipated that the identification of assay gradients within the mineralization may confirm that these structures are part of the feeder system for the surface mineralization. This will allow future programs to focus on the high-grade, structurally controlled mineralization.

(1) True thickness to be determined.
(2) All samples were submitted for preparation and analysis by ALS Global at its facilities in Terrace, BC. All samples were analyzed using multi-digestion with ICP finish and fire assay with AA finish for gold. Samples with over 10 ppm gold were fire assayed with a gravimetric finish. One in 20 samples was blank, one in 20 was a standard sample, and one in 20 samples had a sample cut from assay rejects assayed as a field duplicate at ALS Global in North Vancouver, BC.
(3) One sample cut to 30.0 g/t gold.
