Newswire / November 19, 2019. Delta Resources Limited (“Delta”) (DLTA:TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has completed its first drilling program at the Delta-1 Property in the Thunder Bay Mining District of Ontario.
Delta completed a total of 1009 metres of drilling in 6 drill holes, testing the Eureka Gold Occurrence where chip samples in trenches exposed zones of intense silicification and ankerite alteration that returned assays of 13.8 g/t Au over 5m, 5.9 g/t Au over 5m, 2.4 g/t over 5m, 2.2 g/t Au over 10m, 1.6 g/t Au over 12m and 1.4 g/t Au over 7m.
Drilling was carried out on three sections oriented at 160 degrees azimuth and spaced 100 metres apart. The westernmost sections covers approximately 220 metres across strike in three drill holes while the easternmost section covers approximately 175 metres in 2 drill holes and the central section covers approximately 110 metres with one drill hole. Drilling was performed by Chibougamau Diamond Drilling.

Drilling intersected at least three hydrothermal breccia zones with heterolithic fragments and a black, aphanitic quartz matrix with finely disseminated pyrite. The breccia zones range between 7.6 to 25.7 metres (down core) and are contained within broader zones of incipient breccia which in turn occur within a broad halo of silicified and ankeritized ultramafic rocks. The extent of the alteration zone has not yet been established towards the south. The true thickness of the mineralized zones can’t be established yet due to a lack of information and to date Delta has not received any geochemical data to confirm if the zones are gold-bearing.
The Delta-1 Property covers 48 square kilometres and is located 50 kilometres west of the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario and straddling the Trans-Canada Highway.
The property is located in the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt and covers a 17 km strike extent of the Shebandowan Structural Zone where it is intersected by the gold-bearing Saganaga Shear Zones.
