GOLD: Geophysics extends veins to 500 metres at Maritime’s Whisker Valley

NEWFOUNDLAND – Vancouver-based Maritime Resources Corp. has completed a successful geophysical survey of its Whisker Valley gold project, a survey that may extend the strike length of the mineralization by 500 metres. Whisker Valley is only 10 km from Maritime’s flagship Hammerdown gold deposit on the nearby Green Bay property.

The newly discovered gold vein system was trenched and channel sampled in 2017 with known mineralization extending over 200 metres. The recent 10-line-km induced polarization survey was flown on 50-metre intervals. The last vein exposures to the west returned channel samples over 10 g/t gold and on the east end 20 g/t.

Maritime noted that the gold veins have disseminated pyrite and base metal sulphides, as detected by the IP survey. A drill program is planned for this fall to follow up on the geophysical results.
