GOLD-COPPER: StrikePoint outlines regional trend at PDM property



YUKON – Vancouver’s StrikePoint Gold has outlined what it calls a new regional scale structural trend that links the PDM, Golden-Oly and Nordic properties. The company is calling it the “Seven Wonders Trend”, and it stretches over 78 km.

Samples of sheeted veins were collected from the surface over an area of 350 x 350 metres. Grab samples from PDM returned grades up to 9.8 g/t gold, 2.8% copper (including native copper), and 245 g/t silver.

StrikePoint said its geologists focused on an area of sheeted veins within a granodioritic stock that numbered up to 30 veins over 10-metre outcrop. The veins ranged from the millimeter to centimeter thickness and contained a variety of sulphides with quartz.

CEO Shawn Khunkhun said in a release, “This is another major step forwards by the StrikePoint team on this newly acquired portfolio. The discovery of mineralization at PDM is significant, but being able to tie this in to a larger geological model that covers additional company properties confirms our view that this area warrants further systematic exploration.”
