Nevada Sunrise (TSXV:NEV) reported reverse circulation drill results from Pilot Gold at Kinsley Range included 2.3 g/t gold over 19.8 meters.
Highlights from the drill program include:
Western Flank of Kinsley Range: Ongoing RC drilling approximately 550 metres northwest of the nearest historical pit is testing a prospective area with limited historical drilling. To date, results have been received for two holes:
- 1.73 grams/tonne gold over 15.2 metres in PK056
- 2.3 grams/tonne gold over 19.8 metres in PK057
Candland Canyon: This represents a new zone of mineralization approximately 250 metres north of the easternmost pit, and Pilot Gold reports it will be followed up with additional drilling.
- 1.08 grams/tonne gold over 10.7 meters in PK039
Step Out Holes: Drilling primarily located to the north and east of the main pit area, where core drilling by Pilot Gold in 2011 and 2012 returned up to 6.23 grams/tonne gold over 8.7 metres in hole PK002 and 5.48 grams/tonne gold over 20.4 metres in Hole PK014C (see News Release of July 16, 2012). Results include:
- 3.2 grams/tonne gold over 6.1 metres in PK051(100 metre step out north of PK014C)
- 3.13 grams/tonne gold over 3.0 metres in PK052 (150 metre step out north of PK014C).
Stratigraphic Testing: The drill program also included a small number of holes extending through the known mineralized horizons recognized by previous operators and into dolomite and limestone previously assumed to be unmineralized. Drilling in these units returned encouraging results, including:
- 0.41 grams/tonne gold over 13.7 metres in PK011
- 0.72 grams/tonne gold over 4.6 metres in PK036 (in limestone below the dolomite).
President and CEO of Nevada Sunrise, William Henderson, commented:
Kinsley Mountain continues to deliver strong drill results that may indicate the presence of a large, gold-mineralized system. We are extremely pleased with the exploration progress that Pilot has made to date and look forward to developing the great potential of this property.
