For Immediate Release. December 1, 2020. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that Hole G20-49, located on the southern edge of the G1 Copper Zone, has returned assays of 0.3% copper equivalent over an interval of 215 metres from 186m to 401m down hole. The G1 Copper Zone is located within a 10 KM prospective trend within EnGold’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property located in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Assays remain pending from 2 additional holes south of G1 and 2 holes drilled at the Road Gold Zone. The reported intervals are believed to be true width. A full table of the assay results is inserted below.
“These assay results confirm the significance of the new style of carbonate replacement mineralization we have discovered south of G1 Copper,” said EnGold VP of Exploration Rob Shives, P.Geo. “This new extension of the G1 Zone occurs from 351.16 to 371.46 m downhole (20.3 m grading 0.81 CuEq.) but in Hole 49 we see a very thick overlying lower-grade mineralized section. We look forward to the results of the other two pending holes.”
As indicated in the below table, if the value of the magnetite in the hole is included (far right column), the equivalent grade for hole G20-49 increases to 0.36% CuEq over 215m. As previously reported, the iron content of the G1 and Spout mineralization is very high.
|Assumptions used in USD for the copper equivalent calculation were metal prices of $3.00/lb. Copper, $1,800/oz Gold, $23/oz Silver, Magnetite $75/tonne, and recovery is assumed to be 100% as no metallurgical test data is available. Fe(%) conversion to magnetite based on Spout Deposit is Fe*1.254 - 4.1747 The following equation was used to calculate copper equivalence: CuEq = Copper (%) + (Gold (g/t) x 0.8796) + (Silver (g/t) x 0.0112) + (Fe (%) x 0.0128).|
