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 (SB-2020-29), the Bralorne West Block (SB-2021-003A, SB-2021-004, SB-2021-005 and SB-2021-006) and the Bralorne East Block (SB-2021-001).

 

Key Points:

 

  • Drilling continues to demonstrate excellent gold grade and structural continuity.
  • Hole SB-2021-029 intersected previously unknown high-grade gold mineralisation ~750 metres below and along strike of the historic King Mine.
  • Talisker currently has four drill rigs on site and has completed 18,111 metres of its current 50,000 metre drill program.
  • A total of 4,965 samples are awaiting assay at the lab.

 

Today’s results comprise assay results from the bottom half of hole SB-2020-29, the first hole drilled by Talisker in the King Block. Significantly, this hole demonstrates the potential for high-grade gold mineralisation below and along strike of the historic King Mine (Figure 2).  From the Bralorne West Block, the bottom half of hole SB-2021-002, partial assay results from holes SB-2021-004, SB-2021-005 and SB-2021-006 and the complete set of assay results for hole SB-2021-003A were received. Also received were the bottom half of SB-2021-001 from the Bralorne East Block.  All holes returned significant high-grade gold mineralisation further demonstrating the structural continuity of gold-bearing quartz veins along strike of the historic underground mines at the Bralorne Gold Project and will be incorporated into the dataset that will be used to define a resource estimate expected in 2022.

 

King Block

 

The first hole drilled by Talisker at the King Block suggests significant potential for high-grade gold mineralisation. Following on from the 5.09 g/t gold over 8.40m intersected in the top half of hole SB-2020-029 at King (press release March 16, 2021), the bottom half of the hole intersected high-grade gold mineralisation over 750m beyond the historic underground mine at King (Figure 2, Figure 3a and Table 1). More drilling is required to determine the continuity of these high-grade intersections.

 

Highlights from the King Block include:

  • SB-2020-029
    • 9.95 g/t gold over 0.90m from 827.90m to 828.80m

 

Bralorne East Block

 

Hole SB-2021-001 was the first hole drilled to the east of the Empire fault and was designed to target near-surface gold mineralisation within the Bralorne East Block, and today’s results represent the second half of the hole following the release of the first half in the Company’s press release of March 16, 2021.  High-grade gold mineralisation intersected at 514m downhole is ~300m from the nearest high-grade intersection (Figure 2, Figure 3b and Table 1), further expanding high-grade gold mineralisation to the southeast.

 

Highlights from the Bralorne East Block include:

  • SB-2021-001
    • 13.90 g/t gold over 0.50m from 514.75m to 515.25m
    • 12.85 g/t gold over 0.50m from 1,120.35m to 1,120.85m

 

Bralorne West Block

 

Drilling continues to demonstrate structural continuity along strike of the historic underground mine within the Bralorne West Block (Figure 2, Figure 3c and Table 1).

 

Highlights from the Bralorne West Block include:

  • SB-2021-003A
    • 10.30 g/t gold over 0.70m from 537.80m to 538.50m
  • SB-2021-004
    • 15.10 g/t gold over 1.00m from 380.70m to 381.70m
  • SB-2021-005
    • 16.55 g/t gold over 0.60m from 407.05m to 407.65m
  • SB-2021-006
    • 15.85 g/t gold over 0.60m from 556.60m to 557.20m

 

“Together with the consistency of the received gold grades, these results show significant down plunge extensions of the high-grade vein potential, particularly below the historic King Mine which was only mined to 350m from surface,” commented Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker, who added, “With each stepout hole we are seeing the dimensions of the system increasing from our initial view and we plan to increase our drill program to accommodate the new target areas.”

About Talisker Resources Ltd.

 

Talisker is a junior resource company involved in the exploration of gold projects in British Columbia, Canada. Talisker’s projects include the Bralorne Gold Complex, an advanced stage project with significant exploration potential from a historical high-grade producing gold mine as well as its Spences Bridge Project where the Company holds ~85% of the emerging Spences Bridge Gold Belt and several other early-stage Greenfields projects. With its properties comprising 282,403 hectares over 258 claims, three leases and 198 crown grant claims, Talisker is a dominant exploration player in the south-central British Columbia. The Company is well funded to advance its aggressive systematic exploration program at its projects.

 

Qualified Person

 

The technical information contained in this news release relating to the drill results at the Bralorne Gold Project has been approved by Leonardo de Souza (BSc, AusIMM (CP) Membership 224827), Talisker’s Vice President, Exploration and Resource Development, who is a “qualified person” within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

 

Sample Preparation and QAQC

 

Drill core at the Bralorne project is drilled in HQ to NQ size ranges (63.5mm and 47.6mm respectively). Drill core samples are minimum 50 cm and maximum 160 cm long along the core axis. Samples are focused on an interval of interest such as a vein or zone of mineralisation.  Shoulder samples bracket the interval of interest such that a total sampled core length of not less than 3m both above and below the interval of interest must be assigned. Sample QAQC measures of unmarked certified reference materials (CRMs), blanks, and duplicates are inserted into the sample sequence and make up 9% of the samples submitted to the lab for holes reported in this release.

 

Sample preparation and analyses is carried out by ALS Global, at their laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Drill core sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).

 

Gold and in diamond drill core is analysed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) of a 50g sample (code Au-AA24), while multi-element chemistry is analysed by 4-Acid digestion of a 0.25 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for 48 elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr).

 

Gold assay technique Au-AA24 has an upper detection limit of 10ppm. Any sample that produces an over-limit gold value via the Au-AA24 technique is sent for gravimetric finish via method Au-GRA22 which has an upper detection limit of 1,000 ppm Au. Samples where visible gold was observed are sent directly to screen metallics analysis and all samples that fire assay above 3 ppm Au are re-analysed with method Au-SCR24 which employs a 1kg pulp screened to 100 microns with assay of the entire oversize fraction and duplicate 50g assays on the undersize fraction. Where possible all samples initially sent to screen metallics processing will also be re-run through the fire assay with gravimetric finish provided there is enough material left for further processing.
