Liberty Gold Corp.'s (LGD:TSX; LGDTF:OTCQB) reconnaissance and stepout drilling in the Rangefront Focus Area (RFA) at its Black Pine project "unveiled a much larger gold mineralized footprint that extends well beyond the bounds of the pit-defined resources," Haywood Securities analyst Geordie Mark reported in a Nov. 16 research note.
Specifically, early-stage drilling in the RFA encountered gold mineralization near surface at to depth. Drilling also extended the mineralized system there to 1,000 meters (1,000m) in the north-to-south direction and 800m, east to west.
Additionally, geochemical analysis of the drill results revealed intersections of higher gold grades to depth and suggested they continue into the Middle Plate siliciclastic units, Mark noted.
"These data support our thesis for the presence of a much larger gold mineralized system currently defined within the prevailing resources," he commented.
The Canada-based explorer intends to follow up these findings by drilling throughout the winter. With three rigs active, the company aims to further test the continuity and grade potential of the RFA area.
"More targeted drilling [is] expected to demonstrate further growth over the near term," Mark wrote.
Subsequent steps for Liberty Gold are to update the resource estimate, expected in Q2/22, and then complete a preliminary economic assessment, due out in Q3/22.
As for the company's shares, Mark noted they are trading at an attractive valuation given that Liberty continues to derisk Black Pine through metallurgical work and drilling. Haywood has a Buy rating and a CA$2.75 per share target price on Liberty Gold Corp. Its current share price, in comparison, is CA$1.23.
