BRITISH COLUMBIA – Pretium Resources of Vancouver says results from underground infill drilling at the Valley of the Kings deposit confirm the style and grade distribution of the gold – including high grade intersections and visible gold.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Hole VU-459 intersected 154.13 g/t Au uncut over 14.60 meters, including 4,470 g/t uncut over 0.50 meters.
  • Hole VU-463 intersected 29.94 g/t uncut over 29.50 meters, including 1,690 g/t uncut over 0.50 meters.
  • Hole VU-445 intersected 81.08 g/t uncut over 6.76 meters, including 1,080 g/t uncut over 0.50 meters.
  • Hole VU-445 also intersected 48.36 g/t uncut over 12.00 meters, including 1,090 g/t uncut over 0.50 metres.
  • Hole VU-455 intersected 47.06 g/t uncut over 14.00 meters, including 1,300 g/t uncut over 0.50 meters.

The Brucejack project, 60 km north of Stewart, was the subject of a 2014 feasibility study. Proven and probable reserves in the Valley of the Kings include 13.6 million tonnes grading 15.7 g/t Au and containing 6.9 million oz of gold. The project received a positive federal environmental decision in July 2015.
