Aben Resources Ltd. (ABN:TSX.V; ABNAF:OTCQB) announced in a news release it completed the drilling at the Forrest Kerr project in British Columbia's Golden Triangle required by a 2016 option agreement and, thereby, earned full ownership of the property.
The company reported the results from the last seven drill holes, FK19-64 to FK19-70, of its 2019 drill program there. Five of the holes, FK19-64 to FK19-68, were drilled in the far south end of the Boundary Valley.
Of those, holes FK19-64 and FK19-65 further defined a corridor of consistent gold mineralization at South Boundary measuring more than 500 meters (500m) along strike by 150m across. The zone remains open to the north and south and at depth.
FK19-64 returned an average of 0.17 grams per ton (0.17 g/t) gold over 100m whereas gold grades overall ranged from trace to 4.09 g/t over 1m. FK19-65 returned an average grade of 0.13 g/t gold over 71m.
Hole FK19-66 "intersected widespread moderate to strong alteration associated with breccias and sheared horizons," the release noted. A 1m wide quartz vein at a depth of 133m returned 0.65 g/t gold, 33.6 g/t silver, 3,070 parts per million (3,070) lead and 13,150 ppm zinc in a 6m envelope that averaged 8.1 g/t silver.
Hole FK19-67 hit up to 0.12 g/t gold.
Hole FK1968 encountered gold whose grades ranged from trace to 0.54 g/t.
The remaining two Forrest Kerr holes were drilled about 14 kilometers to the south-southwest of Boundary, at the Forrest prospect.
Hole FK19-69 did not encounter significant mineralization. However, hole FK19-70 returned 0.46 g/t gold and 1.13 g/t silver over 10m.
