The Canadian explorer had a 63-element inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry analysis done of drill samples from holes AG21-02 and AG21-03. Testing showed that arsenic, antimony, mercury and thallium are present in the broad anomalous gold zones these drill holes previously encountered. The metals returned highs of 1,590 parts per million (1,590 ppm) arsenic, 239 ppm antimony, 10-plus ppm mercury and 72 ppm thallium.
"The ICP results from AG21-02 and AG21-03 have confirmed that we have a Carlin-type gold system at Alpha Gold," stated Cor Coe, P.Geo., director and CEO of Sitka Gold. "The combination of broad anomalous gold intercepts, alteration and strong, coincident Carlin pathfinder element anomalies underscores this conclusion."
Also, through surface mapping and structural interpretation, Sitka identified about 5 kilometers of strike length along two north-northwest structural targets. Both indicate strong surface alteration that strengthens to the south-southeast. The company plans to drill these prospective targets further once it receives the necessary permits that are pending.
"We look forward to starting the next phase of drilling and vectoring toward the most probable high-grade core zones of this Carlin-type gold system," Coe said in the release.
