In a Sept. 5 research note, analyst Gabriel Gonzalez with Echelon Wealth Partners reported that results from the first three drill holes at Revival Gold Inc.'s (RVG:TSX.V) Beartrack South Pit "show a continuation of mineralization at depth over good widths and grades that compare favorably with resource grades."
These findings are the first from the company's 8,000 meter (8,000m) drill program to determine if the Beartrack resource can be expanded at depth and along strike. They are:
- Hole BT18-207D: 1.38 grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au) over 18.3m (10m true width) from 392.9–411.2m
- Hole BT18-208D: 1.38 g/t Au over 105.2m (62m) from 383.7–488.9m
- Hole BT18-209D: 1.89 g/t Au over 69.5m (36m) from 527.9–597.4m, including 2.48 g/t Au over 24.7m (15m) from 556–580.7m.
As for continuity, the three holes hit mineralization that covers a strike length of about 300m and extends below the resource estimate pit shell by 50–130m. With respect to grade, it is "relatively high" versus those of the resource, Gonzalez noted, which are 1.13 g/t for the Indicated and 1.41 g/t for the Inferred.
Gonzalez expressed optimism about Revival growing the resource even further. He wrote, "We believe that there is still potentially low hanging fruit for resource extensions, particularly at the North Pit along strike and toward the south along the South Pit to Joss where drilling is currently underway."
Along with drilling at Beartrack, the company intends to conduct 2,000m of core drilling at its adjacent Arnett Creek property once it receives the necessary permits, likely this year. "Revival is ultimately targeting a 3 million ounce, Beartrack-Arnett Creek resource by 2019 before potentially beginning a preliminary economic assessment," Gonzalez explained.
Looking forward, three catalysts are expected for the company this year: the release of further drill results and metallurgical test results from Beartrack and the launch of exploration drilling at Arnett Creek.
Echelon has a Speculative Buy and a CA$1.90 per share target price on Revival, whose stock is currently trading at around CA$0.81 per share.[NLINSERT]
