Talisker Resources Ltd. (TSX: TSK) (OTCQX: TSKFF) is pleased to announce assay results from holes SB-2020-020, SB-2020-021 (partial results) and SB-2020-019 (final results) from its resource drill out drill program at the Bralorne Gold Project in British Columbia.
As of the end of 2020, Talisker has completed 21,547.95m of drilling at the Bralorne Gold Project, results of which continue to verify and prioritize the interpreted expansion and continuity of targeted vein corridors. A further 4,766 core samples are currently at the laboratory pending release. Today’s results are highlighted by the intersection of a broad zone of near-surface gold mineralization in the recently identified Charlotte Zone which returned 22.60 g/t gold over 0.50m within 1.55 g/t gold over 36.95m. Importantly, this zone was intersected at a downhole depth of only 208m (Figure 1, 2, 3). With the validation drill program completed last year, drilling in 2021 is primarily focussed on infill drilling the validated vein corridors; however, the identification of broad zones of gold mineralization close to surface within the Charlotte, Empire and Knight Zones situated above high-grade vein corridors at depth will also continue to be assessed.
Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker commented, “Today’s results further highlight the potential for broad zones of near-surface gold mineralization Charlotte Zone that complement the high-grade gold mineralization at depth that remains the primary target for Talisker’s resource drilling program in 2021. With the validation drill phase successfully completed at the end of last year, Talisker enters 2021 with confidence on the back of a verified geological model at Bralorne. Together with the four drill rigs on site, office and accommodation infrastructure upgrades underway, 2021 is shaping to be an exciting year for Talisker, both at Bralorne and at its Spences Bridge greenfields project where several targets are expected to be drill tested later this year.”
SB-2020-019 full preliminary results have now been received for this hole. Drilling intersected the 53HW splay at 968.70 metres returning 3.03 g/t gold over 2.6m. The hole was drilled to a final depth of 1,223.10m on October 16, 2020. Other highlights from this hole can be seen in the press release dated November 26, 2020.
SB-2020-020 full preliminary results have now been received for this hole. A new vein was intersected at 80.00m depth and returned 6.46 g/t Au over 0.50m inside a broader interval of 2.17 g/t Au over 2.50m. The Vein 51 target was intercepted at 748.80m and produced a high of 8.31 g/t Au over 1.20m within a broader interval of 5.07 g/t Au over 2.20m. This holed drilled to a final depth of 1,055.50m on November 1, 2020.
SB-2020-021 partial assay results have been received. The Charlotte Zone HW (hanging wall) returned shallow intercepts of 5.42 g/t Au over 0.50m within a broader mineralized zone of 1.0 g/t Au over 7.85m from 78.85m downhole and 22.60 g/t Au over 0.50m within a large, mineralized envelope of 1.55 g/t Au over 36.95m from 208.45m depth. This hole was drilled to a final depth of 773.20m on November 4, 2020. Further results from this hole are pending.

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 278,364 hectares over 256 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.
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 mineralization. Shoulder samples bracket the interval of interest such that a total sampled core length of not less than 3 m 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.
