In an Oct. 15 research note, Haywood analyst Kerry Smith reported that "resource expansion drilling at HighGold Mining Inc.'s (HIGH:TSX.V; HGGOF:OTCQX) main Johnson Tract deposit continues to deliver high-grade mineralization in stepout holes outside of the main resource area."
Smith reviewed the latest drill results from JT, including those from four more stepout holes of 50 meters (50m) or less. The aim of this drilling was to expand the northeast side of the deposit. Hole JT-096 returned 11.5 grams per ton (11.5 g/t) gold, 4 g/t silver, 0.5% copper and 3.1% zinc over 20.1 meters. Hole JT-095 demonstrated 10.35 g/t gold, 4.9 g/t silver, 0.51% copper, 9% zinc and 0.01% lead over 4.2m.
Other new results are from the copper discovery in the JT deposit's footwall. Highlights of those include 2.7% copper, 1% zinc and 34 g/t silver over 14.2m, in hole JT20-096, a 45m stepout. "This footwall zone adds potential for good byproduct credits," Smith noted.
Assays are pending for 22 more holes drilled at the JT deposit and its footwall.
A third set of assays comes from the first two of eight holes drilled at the Northeast Offset target, 500–800m to the northeast of the JT deposit. These "interesting" results, as Smith described, include 15.2% copper, 173 g/t silver and 0.8 g/t gold over 1.2m at 794m downhole, in hole JT20-094.
Smith highlighted that HighGold's planned 2020 drill program at JT was for 15,000 meters, and to date it completed 14,000 meters. However, the company just expanded the campaign to 17,000 meters. It is still drilling now with three rigs and likely will keep drilling through the fall, weather permitting.
HighGold also has been preparing for its 2021 campaign by working to develop additional targets at other prospective areas on the property, indicated Smith. Those efforts have included completing of 1,200 soil and silt samples, taking 600 rock samples and conducting a geophysical survey of the Difficult Creek and Kona Prospect areas.
HighGold's stock is currently trading at about CA$2.15 per share. Haywood does not have a rating or target price on HighGold.
