NEVADA – Corvus Gold of Vancouver says the first hole of the 2012 phase two Yellow Jacket drill program at the North Bullfrog gold and silver project near Beatty continues to delineate the bonanza grade feeder system identified earlier this year. Hole NB-12-183 intersected 49 metres of 1.9 g/t Au with 43.0 g/t Ag including 1.7 metres of 13.1 g/t Au with 549.0 g/t Ag.
The high grade, fault controlled Yellow Jacket mineralization has been encountered over a strike length of approximately 700 metres and remains open. Three-dimensional IP imaging has highlighted a number of other structural zones with high grade potential, and Corvus will follow up by drilling several of them beginning in early 2013.
