Talisker Resources Ltd. (TSX: TSK) (OTCQX: TSKFF) is pleased to announce complete and partial drill assay results from its ongoing Stage One 50,000m drill program at the Bralorne Gold Project in British Columbia (Figure 1).  Results have been received from the King Block (hole SB-2020-29), the Bralorne West Block (including Charlotte Zone; SB-2020-028, SB-02020-030, and SB-2021-002 and SB-02021-003) and the Bralorne East Block (SB-2021-001). All results included in this press release intersected mineralisation within 350m from surface.

 

Key Points:

 

  • Hole SB-2020-29, Talisker’s first hole in the King Block, intersected 5.09g/t over 8m of near-surface gold mineralization previously intersected at the Charlotte Zone one kilometre to the southeast.
  • Hole SB-2021-001, drilled in the Bralorne East Block, intersected near-surface high-grade gold mineralization over 600m to the southeast of the Charlotte Zone.
  • These two stepout holes have extended near-surface gold mineralisation by ~1,600m, taking the total strike length of near-surface gold mineralization at the Bralorne Gold Project to ~2km. Near-surface gold mineralization remains open in both directions.
  • Holes SB-2020-028, SB-02020-030, and SB-2021-002 and SB-02021-003 continue to intercept broad areas of gold mineralisation surrounding high-grade veins at the Charlotte Zone.
  • Talisker has completed 13,400 metres of its active 50,000 metre resource drill program. Currently 3,791 samples are in the laboratory awaiting analysis.

 

Today’s results comprise assays from the recently discovered near-surface (from surface to 350m depth) bulk-tonnage Charlotte Zone located in the Bralorne West Block, newly-discovered near-surface gold mineralization at the King Block situated one kilometre to the northwest and a high-grade intercept of near-surface gold mineralization located in the Bralorne East Block approximately 600m to the southeast of the Charlotte Zone (Figure 2 and 3). These results extend near surface gold mineralisation from the Charlotte zone for a total of 1,600m to give a cumulative strike length of 2km. Today’s release also comprises the first batch of assay results from drill holes completed in 2021.

 

“Following on from our confirmation of previously unrecognised, close to surface bulk-tonnage mineralisation at the Charlotte Zone, these holes significantly increase our view of the potential near-surface bulk tonnage gold mineralization within 350m from surface”, stated Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker, who added, “Now with 2 km of strike length identified and open in both directions we are beginning to see significant upside as we explore for this new style of mineralisation along the 30 kilometre long Cadwallader Break that hosts Bralorne.”

 

King Block

 

Of the 4.2 million ounces mined at the Bralorne, Pioneer and King mines, approximately 250,000 ounces of gold were recovered from the King mine, located one kilometre to the northwest of the historic Bralorne Mine. Hole SB-2020-029 represents the first hole targeting high-grade veins at King and extends known near-surface (i.e. < 350m depth) gold mineralisation by 1,000 metres to the northwest.

 

Highlights from the King Block include:

 

  • SB-2020-029
    • 37.40 g/t gold over 0.50m within 5.09 g/t gold over 8.40m from 321.80m to 330.20m

 

Bralorne East Block

 

Hole SB-2021-001 is the first hole drilled to the east of the Empire fault designed to target near-surface gold mineralisation within the Bralorne East Block. Partial results received to date have extended the occurrence of near-surface gold mineralisation (~350m from surface), originally discovered at the Charlotte Zone, by ~600 metres to the southeast. More drilling is required to determine the continuity of gold mineralization within this 600m area and will be tested in the coming weeks.

 

Highlights from the Bralorne East Block include:

  • SB-2021-001
    • 82.00 g/t gold over 0.50m from 171.40m to 171.90m

 

Charlotte Zone (Bralorne West Block)

 

Discovered by Talisker last year the Charlotte Zone is comprised of a series stacked, parallel structures that outcrop at surface. To date, gold mineralization has been defined by drilling over a 600m by 270m area to a depth of ~350m volume and includes broad intervals of lower-grade gold mineralization surrounding high-grade veins.

 

Highlights from the Charlotte Zone include:

  • SB-2020-028
    • 13.55 g/t gold over 0.50m from 302.20m to 302.70m
  • SB-2021-003
    • 0.80 g/t gold over 21.00m from 151.00m to 172.00
  • SB-2021-002
    • 0.71 g/t gold over 10.40m from 51.50m to 61.90m
  • SB-2020-030
    • 0.56 g/t gold over 15.60m from 271.00m to 286.60m
