Treasury Metals Announces 870 g/t over 0.84 metres in larger interval of 52.60 g/t over 15.00 metres at Goliath








  • Results from 12 holes for the Goliath Gold Project 2021 drilling campaign released today include significant intersections both within the PEA resource zone and along strike.  Selected drill results include:
    • Hole TL21-561 which intersected 15.00 m grading 52.60 g/t Au, including 0.84 m grading 870 g/t Au, 0.74 m grading 25.80 g/t Au and 0.50 m grading 47.50 g/t Au from 375 m to 390 m downhole along the Main Zone East shoot;
    • Hole TL21-536 which intersected 14.05 m grading 2.31 g/t Au, including 0.80 m grading 31.40 g/t Au from 639.9 m to 653.95 m downhole between the Main Zone Central and East shoots;
    • Hole TL21-543 which intersected 1.30 m grading 19.80 g/t Au, including 0.70 m grading 33.90 g/t Au approximately 100 metres to the west of the proposed PEA open pit;
    • Hole TL21-540 which intersected 17.50 m grading 0.98 g/t, including 0.80 m grading 7.74 g/t Au and 1.00 m grading 3.61 g/t Au approximately 100 metres west of the proposed PEA open pit; and
    • Hole TL21-534 which intersected 8.00 m grading 2.10 g/t Au, including 1.00 m grading 3.81 g/t Au and 1.00 m grading 7.77 g/t Au from 244 m to 252 m downhole along the Main Zone East shoot, adjacent to the current underground PEA mine plan.


Treasury Metals (TSX: TML) (OTCQX: TSRMF) is pleased to announce results from an initial 6,650 metres from 12 holes of a planned 25,000 metre diamond drilling program for 2021 at the Goliath Gold Deposit located within the larger 100% owned Goliath Gold Complex, which includes the Goliath, Goldlund and Miller deposits along a prospective 65-kilometre trend in Northwestern Ontario.


The Company has drilled approximately 21,500 metres (46 holes) to date at Goliath.  Following the results released today, gold assays are pending on 14,850 metres (34 holes).  In this program;

  • 23 holes have been drilled within the resource area focusing on resource conversion with the goal to connect stopes across identified gaps in the mine plan;
  • 18 holes have been drilled to the west of the proposed PEA pit to explore near surface potential for pit expansion; and
  • 5 holes have been drilled on the Far East exploration target approximately 11 km along strike to the Goliath Deposit where 2012 drilling had encountered felsic volcanic rock similar to Goliath which contained gold mineralization.


Jeremy Wyeth, President and CEO of Treasury Metals, commented: “We are pleased to announce the drill results today from Goliath.  The high-grade intersections intercepted at depth will allow for a better understanding of the geometry of the ore body at depth and will help with modelling the continuity of the underground stopes.  The results near surface to the west of the proposed PEA open pit show good mineralization that can potentially allow for the expansion of the pit to the west, as well as provide additional material for underground mining.  With two drill rigs on the Goliath property, we are continuing with additional resource growth and conversion drilling with the aim of updating our resource in the new year, while allowing for exploration drilling at several targets such as the Far East, where we currently have one drill exploring for the first time since 2012, and at the Fold Nose, where we intend to drill later this year.”

The Goliath drill plan for 2021 has primarily focused on areas within the resource which could benefit future studies and mine design.  Holes TL21-561 and TL21-534 targeted gaps in the PEA mine stopes along the Eastern Shoot of the Main Zone which the geological interpretation suggested high grade mineralization should be present, but historical drilling past the outer edge of the shoots restricted the extension of mineable material.  Both returned significant gold mineralization where TL21-561 intersected 52.60 g/t Au over 15.00 metres including 870 g/t Au over 0.84 metres, 25.80 g/t Au over 0.74 metres, and 47.50 g/t Au over 0.50 metres; and TL21-534 intersected 2.10 g/t Au over 8.00 metres including 3.81 g/t Au over 1.00 metre and 7.77 g/t Au over 1.00 metre.  Both holes will assist in strengthening the continuity of the model and potentially add to the underground resources.


In addition, drilling has been conducted to convert any remaining underground resources from inferred to the indicated classification while expanding the areas of known mineralization.  TL21-536 intersected 2.31 g/t Au over 14.05 metres including 31.40 g/t Au over 0.80 metres and TL21-535 intersected 0.42 g/t over 13.15 metres including 3.59 g/t Au over 0.55 metres.  Both intersections are located along the western side of the Eastern Shoot of the Main Zone and will provide greater drill density to help upgrade nearby blocks to the indicated classification.

Goliath Western Extension


The first set of drillholes on the western extension of the Goliath mineralized zones show promising results with all three holes returning elevated gold values.  Hole TL21-540 intersected 0.98 g/t Au over 17.50 metres, including 7.74 g/t over 0.80 metres and 3.61 g/t Au over 1.00 metre in the Main Zone as well as 0.46 g/t Au over 23.00 metres, including 6.00 g/t Au over 1.00 metre in the C Zone; and Hole 21-542 intersected 0.40 g/t Au over 28.00 metres including 2.00 g/t over 1.00 metre in the Main Zone.  In addition to the Main and C Zone intersections, both TL21-540 and TL21-542 found wide intervals of gold mineralization above open pit cut-off grade in a Hangingwall zone near surface; Hole TL21-540 intersected 0.32 g/t Au over 17.90 metres, while Hole TL21-542 intersected 0.44 g/t Au over 13.40 metres.  These drillholes are located just outside the western edge of the PEA pit and represent potential opportunity for future expansion.

Exploration Update


To date, we have completed more than 46,600 metres of drilling across the Project. At Goldlund and Miller, we have completed more than 25,100 metres of drilling, which we believe to be sufficient to achieve the resource conversion activities we outlined at the beginning of 2021.  At Goliath, we have completed more than 21,500 metres and expect to complete a further 3,500 metres by the end of the year targeting resource conversion.


The remainder of the drilling activities will be focussed on exploration targets across the Project, continuing with drilling underway at the Far East target on Goliath, moving to additional targets along the Northeast strike extent from the resource area at Goliath.  At Goldlund, follow up drilling at Zone 5 has completed and the drill will move to the Ocelot target, one of several new targets identified on the Goldlund property, as outlined in the map below.



Figure 3:  Goliath Gold Complex Exploration Targets


Maura Kolb, Director of Exploration, stated “We have spent the past four months merging the Goliath and Goldlund geologic data into one regional model and database.  This work has allowed us to generate several exciting exploration targets across our 65 kilometre strike length, which we have begun to ground truth with field mapping and prospecting, in advance of drilling these targets over the balance of 2021 and into 2022.”


The exploration program has been designed to ensure the safety of the workforce and surrounding communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and incorporates enhanced operating protocols that are consistent with local health guidance.




The Company has implemented a quality assurance and quality control program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with the CIM Exploration Best Practices Guidelines. The drill core is sawn in half with one-half of the core sample dispatched to Activation Laboratories Ltd. facility located in Dryden, Ontario. The other half of the core is retained for future assay verification and/or metallurgical testing. Other QA/QC procedures include the insertion of blanks and Canadian Reference Standards for every tenth sample in the sample stream. A quarter core duplicate is assayed every 20th sample. The laboratory has its own QA/QC protocols running standards and blanks with duplicate samples in each batch stream.  Additional checks are routinely run on anomalous values including gravimetric analysis and pulp metallic screen fire assays. Gold analysis is conducted by lead collection, fire assay with atomic absorption and/or gravimetric finish on a 50-gram sample. Check assays are conducted at a secondary ISO certified laboratory (in this case AGAT Laboratories located in Mississauga, Ontario) following the completion of a program.
