BRITISH COLUMBIA – The grade continues to rise as Toronto-based Seabridge Gold drills the Deep Kerr core zone at the KSM project 65 km northwest of Stewart. The best result from the Deep Kerr core zone was 69 metres of 1.78% Cu and 1.14 g/t Au.
Better yet, the company reported discovering an exceptional bornite-rich zone, of the type typically found in larger, higher grade copper deposits, within the core zone. The excellent grades mentioned above came from the first bornite intercept, and the core between the mineralized portions is intensely altered in the style characteristic of a deep, high temperature core zone that Seabridge was targeting.
