Next Ann North Hole Underway
2nd Drill Targets Porphyry Prospect South of G1 Copper Deposit
For Immediate Release. October 15, 2021. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that it has completed a 916.5 metre drill hole targeting the Ann North Alkalic Porphyry Copper Gold prospect. Hole AN21-02, angled at -70 degrees to the south, encountered visible chalcopyrite and bornite along fractures within strong potassic alteration to 400m downhole, followed by weaker sections, then intensifying deeper in the hole, including increasing magnetite to a depth 850m. Assays from the entire hole are pending. A vertical hole from the same setup is now underway to test the structure to the north.
A second drill mobilized to Lac La Hache is following up on DDH G1 18-42 that intersected a 58 m thick hybrid porphyry-copper style/semi-massive magnetite replacement style typical of G1 Deposit, grading 0.55% CuEq. Hole G1 21-52, now underway, is a 100m step out aimed at finding the porphyry source of the G1 mineralization and testing the large-scale Peach IP anomaly at depth.
“The Ann North drilling to date confirms we are in a classic Alkalic Porphyry copper gold environment,” said EnGold VP of Exploration Rob Shives, P.Geo. “The significant quartz veining accompanying the alteration and the presence of bornite with the chalcopyrite is encouraging, as is the increasing magnetite at depth.”
“We’ve assembled an excellent exploration team who are executing well on our aggressive Lac La Hache deep drilling exploration strategy,” said EnGold President and CEO David Brett. “We expect to be drilling throughout the fall and winter.”
Assays are also pending for the Road Gold Zone drilling and results will be announced as soon as they are available.
Rob Shives P.Geo., VP Exploration and a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this release.
EnGold is a Vancouver-based copper, gold, silver, magnetite exploration company focused solely on its 100% owned Lac La Hache property in the Cariboo region of BC which hosts the Spout Copper Deposit, the Aurizon Gold Deposit and the G1 Copper Deposit and other targets within a large porphyry mineralizing system.
