*Previously reported per News Release dated December 19, 2016
The last five holes of the seven-hole program were spotted at the southeastern end of a local widening in the H-1 structure from which several bulk samples have been taken in the past. About a hundred meters to the southeast, the first two holes of the program were drilled below a trench excavated in 1995 which returned a grade of 11.65 g/t gold and 0.18% cobalt across 9.0 metres. True widths of the intervals are not known. No significant cobalt values were encountered in the holes.
The mineralized intercepts exhibit distinctive signs of hydrothermal brecciation, with gold occurring as fine disseminations localized within intensely chloritized, highly silicified semi-massive to massive hematite-specularite.
The Clone gold and gold-cobalt bearing shear zones were first discovered in 1995. Since that date almost $6 million has been spent exploring a series of occurrences lying along a 2km package of volcanic and sedimentary rocks. The so-called Main Zone, situated in the southeast portion of this system, has produced elevated gold grades both in trenches and in diamond drill core. One bulk sample of 102 tons had an average grade of 137.1 g/t gold.
Present ownership of the property is Makena Resources 50%, Silver Grail Resources Ltd. 25% and Teuton Resources 25%.
Quality control procedures in place include the field insertion of blanks and standards into the sample stream. Analytical work was done by Pioneer Laboratories of Richmond, BC., an accredited facility. Gold was analyzed by 30 gram fire assay with AA finish.
