VANCOUVER – Rockhaven Resources Ltd. [RK-TSXV; RKHNF-OTC] ] reported additional assay results from the 2021 exploration program at its 100%-owned and road-accessible Klaza property, located in the Dawson Range gold belt 50 km west of Carmacks, southern Yukon.
During summer and fall of 2021, a total of 14,256 metres of drilling was completed in 72 holes. The objectives of this drilling were to expand of existing mineral resources, recategorize some inferred mineral resources into indicated mineral resources, infill gaps in drill patterns that are currently categorized as waste rock within existing resource area, and evaluate exploration targets that lie outside of the known mineral resource areas.
Results in this news release include 10 holes at the Western BRX zone; for example, the recategorization of inferred to indicated mineral resources and evaluation of gaps in the drill pattern that are categorized as waste rock in the current resource estimates.
Highlight assay results from 2021 drilling at the Western BRX zone are 24.38 g/t gold, 805 g/t silver, 6.7% lead and 6.9% zinc over 2.02 etres in hole KL-21-526. Hole KL-21-527 returned 5.25 g/t gold, 143 g/t silver, 0.9% lead and 1.2% zinc over 6.59 metres.
Hole KL-21-532 returned 52.6 g/t gold, 279 g/t silver, 0.7% lead and 1.0% zinc over 0.94 metres. Hole KL-21-529 returned 11.04 g/t gold, 202 g/t silver, 1.1% lead and 1.3% zinc over 2.46 metres. Hole KL-21-536 returned 10.74 g/t gold, 100 g/t silver, 0.9% lead and 0.4% zinc over 2.41 metres.
Hole KL-21-524 returned 15.04 g/t gold, 235 g/t silver, 0.9% lead and 1.2% zinc over 1.37 metres and 10.20 g/t gold, 228 g/t silver, 2.1% lead and 5.4% zinc over 1.70 metres. Hole KL-21-531 returned 32.60 g/t gold, 392 g/t silver, 1.5% lead and 3.6% zinc over 0.59 metrres and 17.75 g/t gold, 100 g/t silver, 0.5% lead and 0.7% zinc over 0.71 metres.
Hole KL-21-533 returned 3.80 g/t gold, 1,310 g/t silver, 16.5% lead and 3.8% zinc over 0.60 metres and 19.20 g/t gold, 99.4 g/t silver, 0.% lead and 0.% zinc over 0.80 metres. Hole KL-21-519 returned 12.65 g/t gold, 60 g/t silver, 0.5% lead and 1.5% zinc over 1.17 metres.
“The majority of the 2021 drill results from the Western BRX zone returned better grades than the average for the mineral resources, and over significant vein widths. We will be incorporating these results into an updated mineral resource estimate later this spring,” stated Matt Turner, CEO. “Currently, there are 414,000 gold equivalent ounces grading 10.1 g/t gold equivalent classified in the indicated resource category at the Western BRX zone, and the results from 2021 program continue to confirm the exceptional character of this mineralized zone.”
Prior to this latest drill program, the Western BRX zone hosted an Indicated Mineral Resource estimate of 1,269,000 tonnes containing 341,000 oz gold, 4,672,000 oz silver, 25.65 million lbs lead and 28.12 million lbs zinc averaging grade of 8.4 g/t gold, 115 g/t silver, 0.9% lead and 1.0% zinc and an Inferred Resource of 1,343,000 tonnes containing 172,000 oz gold, 3,550,000 oz silver, 19.96 million lbs lead and 24.86 million lbs zinc averaing 4.0 g/t gold, 82 g/t silver, 0.7% lead and 0.8% zinc.
Results from the remaining 33 holes completed in 2021, which tested other mineralized zones on the Klaza property, are pending as well as results of excavator trenching and soil geochemical surveys.
