YUKON – Vancouver-based Rockhaven Resources has received high grade assays from the Central Klaza zone at the Klaza gold-silver project 50 km west of Carmacks. Three holes in the zone returned 11.28 g/t Au, 75.9 g/t Au and 7.37% Zn over 3.68 metres; 5.99 g/t Au and 165 g/t Ag over 0.96 metres; and 5.20 g/t Au and 24.7 g/t Ag over 2.08 metres. A trench sample in the same zone assayed 36.60 g/t Au and 374 g/t Ag over 2.00 metres.
Rockhaven has completed 45 diamond drill holes, a total of 12,000 metres, at the Klaza project this year. Two skid mounted drills are at work to expand the current resource and provide geotechnical and environmental data.
The Central Klaza zone forms the core of the Klaza zone, a 2,400-metre long mineralized complex that is one of nine gold-silver zones identified to date on the Klaza property. Mineralization in the main zone and various subsidiary structures have been traced over a 800 metres strike length and to a maximum depth of 325 metres. The zone remains open at depth and into the footwall.
Inferred resources at Klaza include 7.04 million tonnes grading 4.19 g/t Au, 96.23 g/t Ag, 0.80% Pb and 0.93% Zn. The resources contain an estimated 938,348 oz of gold, 21.78 million oz of silver, 121.06 million lb of lead, and 144.34 million lb of zinc.
