Delta Resources Limited Starts Drilling and Geophysics at Delta-1: Eureka Discovery, Thunder Bay Mining District, Ontario
KINGSTON, Ontario, Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Delta Resources Limited (“Delta”) (DLTA:TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it will be starting its first drilling program during the first week of November 2019, at the Delta-1 Property in the Thunder Bay Mining District, Ontario.
Delta will be drill-testing the Eureka Gold Occurrence, a new and never drilled, discovery made during the summer of 2018 and acquired by Delta on October 3rd, 2019. The EUREKA gold zone is exposed by trenching over a minimum strike length of 400m and chip sampling has returned assays of 13.8 g/t Au over 5m, 5.9 g/t Au over 5m, 2.4 g/t over 5m, 2.2 g/t Au over 10m, 1.6 g/t Au over 12m and 1.4 g/t Au over 7m. It’s also believed that a 16m wide shear zone located at the heart of the mineralized zone could not be reached by mechanical trenching due to its depth below overburden.The 1,000 metre drill program will be testing the gold-bearing ankerite-pyrite-arsenopyrite zone, exposed by trenching over a strike length of 400m so far. The mineralized alteration zone as a whole, spans for a minimum strike length of 2 kilometres and a width of up to 400 metres.THE EUREKA ZONE AND ITS POSSIBLE STRIKE EXTENSIONS HAVE NEVER BEEN DRILLED OVER A MINIMUM STRIKE LENGTH OF 1.5 KILOMETRES.In addition to this drilling program, Delta has also started a high-resolution drone magnetic survey covering the eastern part of the Delta-1 property (which includes the Eureka Discovery). The 168 line-kilometre survey will help to outline structures parallel to and cross-cutting the mineralized zone where bedrock is not exposed. This will help in future target definition.The Delta-1 Property covers 48 square kilometres and is located 50 kilometres west of the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario and straddling the Trans-Canada Highway.The property is located in the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt and covers a 17 km strike extent of the Shebandowan Structural Zone which also hosts the Moss Lake gold deposit*, a large tonnage-low grade deposit located 50 km WSW of the property where gold resources stand at of 40 MT at 1.1 g/t Au indicated (1.4M oz) and an additional 50 MT at 1.1 g/t Au inferred (1.7M oz).
