A.I.S. Resources Plans New RC Drill Program at Yalgogrin Gold Project
September 29, 2021
Vancouver, British Columbia – A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX-V: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF) (the “Company” or “AIS”) provides an updated report on exploration progress at Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW Australia in preparation for the RC drill program.
Nine Diamond Drill Holes Completed
Gold and multi-element results for all 9 diamond drillholes have been received for a total of 1,538m including one hole at the Asia Wyalong mine.
Structural geology observations indicate gold mineralization is controlled by alteration within the granite and veins with multiple orientations. The best results were returned from the Neighbours Farm prospect which were following up on previously reported 87m @ 1.5 g/t Au in YDD01. YDD01 appeared to be drilled down dip of the mineralization, and this was confirmed in subsequent drilling in DDH YDD06 and YDD07.
Best results included:
13m @ 2.1 g/t Au from 68m including 1m @ 6.4 g/t Au in YDD06, and
16m @ 0.8 g/t Au from 104m including 0.3m @ 10 g/t Au in YDD07.
Fig. 1 – The section shows the IP chargeability trend from conducting sulphides that contain gold mineralisation, the untested areas, the structural controls and high chargeability trend near the 32gm/t gold sample and the multidirectional structural controls through the 87m at 1.5g/t gold.
A DDH of 92 metres was completed and encountered very difficult drilling conditions. Some core was lost, due in part to shear zones with significant core loss in areas of large quartz veining so this core wasn’t analysed, however significant quartz veining is associated with elevated pathfinder metals. Further exploration will utilize reverse circulation to locate down plunge position of the gold mineralization.
New RC Drill Program
The gold mineralised body has been intersected in drilling from surface to a vertical depth of 140m at Neighbours Farm and now requires further drilling to determine the true width and dimensions where previous surface auger showed high grade shallow results (32 g/t and 12 g/t Au).
Fig. 2 – Blue dots show location of 29 RC drill holes proposed for the new RC drill program. Results will initially be analysed using XRFp to assist with drill program. The brown background is elevated lead values that correlate with gold mineralisation. Historic mines are shown as blue crosses.
