Mining News: Defining high-caliber gold-silver at Klaza
Rockhaven Resources Ltd. Nov. 16 reposted additional high-grade gold-silver intercepts at its Klaza project in the Yukon, including one hole that cut 56.19 grams per metric ton gold, 290 g/t silver, 1.63 percent zinc and 1.44 percent lead over 1.9 meters. The company completed 15,922 meters of drilling in 96 holes this year. The latest batch of results are from 18 holes drilled into the Western and Central BRX zones, where infill drilling has better defined near-surface mineralization so that inferred resources can be upgraded to the indicated category. Other highlighted intercepts from the 18 holes include: 23.7 g/t gold, 652 g/t silver, 5.42 percent lead and 4.04 percent zinc over 1.74 meters; 37.21 g/t gold, 402 g/t silver, 1.6 percent lead and 2.37 percent zinc over 1.09 meters; and 16 g/t gold, 271 g/t silver, 3.26 percent lead and 1.92 percent zinc over 2.18 meters. All of the highlighted intercepts are from Western BRX. “The drill results at the Western BRX zone continue to confirm the style and consistency of high-grade gold and silver mineralization and further validates the Western BRX zone as a truly elite asset,” stated Matt Turner, Rockhaven’s CEO. “Road accessible mineralization of this caliber is rare in northern Canada and we expect to continue to focus on defining this zone as the Klaza project advances.” Assay results from six additional holes drilled at Klaza this year are pending.
