P2 Gold Inc. (TSX-V: PGLD) (OTCQB: PGLDF) reports that it has commenced drilling at its gold-copper BAM Project located in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia. The 2023 BAM Project Drill Program builds on the three prior years’ exploration and is targeting the porphyry system interpreted to be feeding the surface mineralization at the Monarch Gold Zone and Jan Copper Zone.
Exploration crews mobilized to BAM in mid-May and quickly established the camp and began field evaluation of drill targets identified from the 2022 geophysical surveys. For 2023, drilling is expected to be completed in two phases with the first phase consisting of approximately 3,000 meters and the second phase contingent of first phase results.
“We believe we are on the cusp of a major discovery at BAM,” commented Ken McNaughton, Chief Exploration Officer of P2. “Geology, geophysics and surface evaluation are all pointing to significant porphyry-related mineralization underlying the Monarch Gold and Jan Copper Zones and indicating potential for additional porphyry-related mineralization elsewhere on the property. This is the summer where we believe all of our prior exploration work comes together to drive discovery.”
The BAM 2022 Exploration Program consisted of 13,962 meters of drilling, completed primarily at the Monarch Gold Zone, which greatly enhanced understanding of the geology at BAM and resulted in an initial Mineral Resource for the Monarch Gold Zone (see news release dated January 25, 2023). The drilling also expanded the Monarch Gold Zone to over 1 kilometer by 1.2 kilometers in area, with the zone remaining open in multiple directions. Petrographic and TerraSpec analysis completed in the off season has confirmed field observations that alteration emanates out from the middle of the Monarch Gold zone towards the edges and increases with depth.
The 2022 program also included a natural source magneto-telluric (NSMT) geophysical survey and a Z-Tipper Axis Electromagnetic (ZTEM) airborne geophysical survey. Three-dimensional inversions of the electrical conductivity models of the NSMT survey data and ZTEM survey data were combined using joint inversion modelling to provide a three-dimensional geophysical model of the BAM Project. The three-dimensional inversion model gives a subsurface view of the conductivity/resistivity with an estimated accuracy down to a depth of roughly sea level (approximately 1,400 meters below surface at the Monarch Gold Zone).
The three-dimensional geophysical model was completed independently of the geological interpretation of the BAM Project. Compilation of the geophysical model with the 2022 drill results shows a strong correlation with surface mineralization and geological interpretation at depth. It also shows that both the Monarch Gold Zone and Jan Copper Zone overlie zones of high conductivity sitting approximately 500 meters below surface. These conductive zones are interpreted to be the mineralized cupola overlying a copper-gold porphyry and will be the target of the first two drill holes of this year’s drill program.
Results from the 2023 BAM Drill Program will be reported on receipt.
