Yukon- focused Golden Predator Mining Corp (TSX: GPY, OTCQX: NTGSF) unveiled positive results from exploration at the 3 Aces project, including a sample of 30.8 g/t (grams per tonne) gold.
The 3 Aces property covers 225 sq km and consists of 1,118 contiguous quartz claims (23,000 hectares).
It includes the two highest grade surface outcrops discovered to date in the Yukon.
The latest data comes from airborne surveys and surface exploration and the highlights, include from the Three of Spades – a gold bearing vertical fault zone – an increased strike length of vein with returns including 6.95 g/t gold.
At the newly discovered Queen of Spades zone, six samples returned values over 5 g/t gold with the highest grade sample returning 30.8 g/t gold.
At the newly discovered Seven of Spades zone, a series of flat lying stacked quartz veins, high angle quartz veins and steeply dipping fracture/fault zones, the three highest values of 18.55g/t gold, 17.05 g/t gold and 16.8 g/t gold were from flat lying quartz veins.
At the Ace of Spades site, three 2 m channel samples were collected and returned values of 8.62 g/t, 13.4 g/t and 3.88 g/t gold respectively, the group said.
Road building, trenching and sampling targeting areas of high gold-in-soil anomalies will continue in the spring of 2017.
