Mining News: Rockhaven taps more high-grade gold, silver

Rockhaven Resources Ltd. Nov. 14 said the assay results from an additional 15 holes drilled this year continue to confirm and expand upon the high-grade gold and silver mineralization at the company’s Klaza project in southern Yukon. Results from drilling in the West Klaza zone include 2.69 meters of 8.91 grams per metric ton gold and 452 g/t silver in hole 419; 2.26 meters of 8.54 g/t gold and 674 g/t silver in hole 412; and 1.01 meters of 6.18 g/t gold and 441 g/t silver in hole 414. Highlights from drilling in the Main Klaza zone include 7.41 meters of 3.77 g/t gold and 24.7 g/t silver in hole 389; 1.36 meters of 21.13 g/t gold and 116 g/t silver in hole 392; and 9.52 meters of 1.2 g/t gold and 22.1 g/t silver in hole 427. The Klaza zone is one of eleven main vein systems identified in the core of the Klaza property. The central and western parts of the zone and adjacent subsidiary structures have been traced over a combined 1,400 meters strike length and to a depth of 325 meters. Rockhaven has drilled 10,300 meters at the Klaza zone since the last resource was calculated at the end of 2015. “Drilling in 2017 has successfully expanded the area of mineralization and further confirmed the exceptional continuity of high-grade gold and silver veins within the Klaza Zone,” said Rockhaven CEO Matt Turner. “We are currently revising the geological model for this zone and anticipate an updated resource estimate in early 2018.” The 2017 program at Klaza included 15,922 meters of drilling in 96 holes. Assays are pending from 25 holes drilled this year.
