GOLD: Metals Creek discovers new outcrop in Timmins camp

ONTARIO – Toronto-based Metals Creek Resources said a short prospecting program recently led to the discovery of a new mineralized gold showing about 465 metres southeast of the Thomas Ogden zone. The Ogden property is 6 km south of Timmins, and is a 50-50 joint venture with Goldcorp.

The new mineralization is characterized by strongly brecciated albitization, silicification with associated pyrite and stringer style arsenopyrite. Results from grab samples range from 23 ppb gold to 1,340 ppb. Pyrite and arsenopyrite range from 2% to 15%, co-incident with a 600-metre long moderate to strong induced polarization anomaly.

Metals Creek also reported drilling results from the final two holes of a small (980-metre), four-hole program. Hole TOG-17-53 intersected the mineralized zone at a known-hole depth of 322 metres and assayed 2.11 g/t gold over 12.45 metres. The same hole also cut 1.85 g/t over 2.43 metres at a depth of 332 metres. Hole TOG-17-54 was drilled 435 metres west of the Thomas Ogden zone. It assayed 1.08 g/t gold over 1.38 metres at a depth of 177.77 metres.
