Thesis Gold Drills 34.00 Metres of 19.56 g/t Au at Ranch






Thesis Gold Inc. (TSX-V: TAU) (WKN: A2QQ0Y) is pleased to announce initial drill results from the Company’s maiden 20,000 metre drill program at its 100% owned Ranch Gold-Copper Project, located in the Golden Horseshoe of north-central British Columbia, Canada. Strongly altered zones from the first three holes at the Bonanza Zone were selected for rushed analysis, the results are presented in Table 1.




  • Drill hole 21BNZDD001 returned 34.00 m core length of 19.56 g/t Au at the Bonanza Gold Zone; including 15.00 m of 41.64 g/t Au and 7.00 m of 82.48 g/t Au from a depth of only 26 metres downhole (Table 1).
  • Similarly drill hole 21BNZDD003, a 15 metre step out from 21BNZDD001 intersected high-grade gold mineralization essentially at surface returning 24.86 m of 9.53 g/t Au including 5.65 m of 28.72 g/t Au.
  • Of the planned 20,000 m drill program, over 6,000 metres has been completed to date at the Bonanza and Ridge Gold Zones that includes confirmation, expansion, and exploration drilling (Figure 1).
  • Two diamond drill rigs are currently turning at Bonanza, but will shortly be moving to the Thesis 2 & 3 Gold Zones to complete a similar confirmation and expansion program.
  • Third drill rig added.
    • A track mounted reverse circulation (RC) drill rig has recently been added and is testing over 10 new exploration targets at the heart of the project.
  • Vuggy silica and pervasive silicification, with local hydrothermal brecciation, are the best indicators of elevated gold within the high sulphidation epithermal alteration envelope. Additionally, historical drill logs and early assay results indicate a strong correlation between the presence of copper sulphides and gold content in drilling (Figure 1).

Drillhole From (m) To (m) Interval (m)* Au (g/t) Zone
21BNZDD001 26.00 60.00 34.00 19.56 Bonanza
including 26.00 41.00 15.00 41.64
including 26.00 33.00 7.00 82.48
21BNZDD002 9.46 15.46 6.00 0.72 Bonanza
and 40.00 55.32 15.32 1.87
including 44.75 46.87 2.12 4.34
and including 50.00 52.00 2.00 4.64
21BNZDD003 10.06 34.92 24.86 9.53 Bonanza
including 18.00 33.50 15.50 14.25
including 27.35 33.00 5.65 28.72

*Intervals are core-length. True width is estimated between 80-90% of core length.


Ewan Webster, President and CEO, commented, “Thesis is delighted with these initial outstanding assay results from our maiden drill program. These first three confirmation holes at the Bonanza Zone confirm high-grade gold mineralization extends from surface to depth. We anticipate further results from both the Bonanza and the Ridge Zones over the coming weeks.”

Quality Assurance and Control


Results from samples were analyzed at ALS Global Laboratories (Geochemistry Division) in Vancouver, Canada (an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited facility). The sampling program was undertaken by Company personnel under the direction of Rob L’Heureux, P.Geol. A secure chain of custody is maintained in transporting and storing of all samples. Gold was assayed using a fire assay with atomic emission spectrometry and gravimetric finish when required (+10 g/t Au). Drill intervals with visible gold were assayed using metallic screening. Rock chip samples from outcrop/bedrock are selective by nature and may not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the project.


The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Michael Dufresne, M.Sc, P.Geol., P.Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
