YUKON – Vancouver-based ATAC Resources says assays of diamond drill core from the Conrad zone at the Rackla gold project tested as high as 15.73 g/t Au over 16.0 metres from hole 12-141. Hole 12-170 returned 6.19 g/t Au over 42.68 metres, and hole 12-168 returned 3.08 g/t over 74.67 metres.
ATAC says the Conrad zone is one of four Carlin-type mineralized zones that it has drill tested at the eastern end of the Nadaleen Trend. The other zones are Osiris, Isis and Isis East.
Mineralization at the Conrad zone is contained within several structural and stratigraphic settings. Characteristic Carlin-type hydrothermal alteration, consisting of decalcification and silicification accompanied by the arsenic sulphide mineral realgar, is focused along the contact of limestone with an overlying pyritic siltstone cap unit, with the thickest and best mineralized areas in or near the crest of an anticline fold.
The photographs taken of exploration work along the Nadaleen Trend have many professional quality images. Enjoy them at ATACresources.com.
