In an April 22 research note, Cormark Securities analyst Richard Gray reported that Troilus Gold Corp.'s (TLG:TSX; CHXMF:OTCQB) "Southwest zone is starting to bring the heat," and the company recently drilled one of the best holes ever on the property.
The Southwest zone is part of its Troilus gold project in Quebec and is located about 3.5 kilometers (3.5 km) from the main mineralized zone at Z87. Southwest and the main mineralized zone share similar geology.
Gray relayed that the highlight hole, TLG-ZSW20-189, drilled in Troilus' Southwest zone, returned 2.05 grams per ton (2.05 g/t) gold equivalent (Au eq) over 48 meters (48m) within a larger intercept of 1.56 g/t Au eq over 73m. The grade is more than double the average grade of the existing resource of 0.95 g/t Au eq.
Results of another highlighted hole that Troilus reported along with this one, TLG-ZSW20-185, showed 1.02 g/t Au eq over 15m.
"These drill results further demonstrate the potential of the Southwest zone to add to the current mineral inventory of 6,470,000 ounces of Au eq at the Troilus project," Gray noted.
Currently, Southwest, defined by the Main and West zones, extends for 1 km along strike and ranges from 10–70m in width. An initial resource estimate for Troilus is expected later this year.
"Troilus could be a breakout explorer name in 2020," Gray stated.
"The project has the size and scope to garner a significant re-rating as the company achieves further de-risking catalysts over the next 12-18 months, or become an attractive acquisition target for senior and midtier producers looking for large and undervalued resources in what is one of the safest jurisdictions in the world," Gray concluded.
Cormark has a Buy recommendation and a CA$3.65 per share target price on Troilus Gold. The stock is trading now at about CA$0.98 per share.
