TheNewswire / October 29, 2019. Delta Resources Limited (“Delta”). (DLTA:TSX/V) is pleased to announce that it has made a new gold discovery during its due diligence work at the Delta-2 property southwest of Chibougamau, Quebec.
The new discovery is located approximately 1.1 kilometre northeast of the R-14 gold prospect and consists of a 20cm wide, sub-vertical, gold quartz vein trending 070az. So far, the structure is only exposed over a few metres of strike length as the outcrop disappears under glacial till. Five grab samples were sent to assay and results are as follows (note that grab samples are selective by nature and reported values are not necessarily representative of all the mineralized zones):
Sample 2404: 11.75 g/t gold
Sample 2405: 2.42 g/t gold
Sample 2406: 15.65 g/t gold
Sample 2407: 55.80 g/t gold
Sample 2408: 15.45 g/t gold
Shortly after the initial discovery, a channel sample was collected over the vein and host rocks and returned 6.45 g/t Au over 1 metre.
“The Due Diligence Occurrence is a very pleasant surprise.” said Andre Tessier, President and CEO of Delta Resources. “We think this bodes very well for the future of the Delta-2 property. If our small team was able to discover this new high-grade occurrence during 2 weeks of due diligence field work, I can only imagine what we can do in a whole field season.”
On October 16, 2019, Delta announced the signing of an exclusive agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the R-14 Gold Property (“The Delta-2 Property”) in the Chibougamau Mining District of Quebec.
The property covers nearly 126 square kilometres and is located 40 kilometres south-east of the city of Chibougamau, Quebec and accessed via paved Highway 167.
The Delta-2 Property is host to several gold occurrences, the most important of which is the R-14 Gold Prospect where mechanical trenching has exposed a gold-bearing dike swarm within a discordant alteration halo 3 kilometres long and 1 kilometre wide. At R-14, exceptional gold values of up to 142.29 g/t Au over core length of 2.44 metres have been intersected in the early 1980’s by Corner Bay Exploration (Brunelle, 1983 quoted by Faure, 2012). The property was later worked by D’Arianne Resources Inc. who also reported significant results in channel and drill samples.
The Delta exploration team has carried-out due diligence work at the property and has refined a new geological interpretation of the area which opens great exploration potential. Please refer to the Delta Resources web site at http://www.deltaresources.ca/ for additional information on the Delta-2 Property.
The gold geochemical analyses were performed by atomic absorption method but all samples with results greater than 10 ppm were re-analyzed by gravimetric method on 30g weighted samples. The samples were analysed by ALS Chemex Geochemistry from Val D’Or, Quebec.
Michel Chapdelaine, P.Geo. and Vice-President of Exploration at Delta Resources Limited is a Qualified Persons as defined by NI-43-101 and is responsible for the technical information presented in this press release.
