YUKON – Toronto-based Victoria Gold Corp. has received additional results from the on-going 2017 Dublin Gulch gold exploration program 375 km north of Whitehorse, in the Mayo district. The most recent results comes from the Catto zone, located between the Eagle mine and the Olive-Shamrock deposit.

Highlighted results from the 2017 Catto zone drilling include:

  • Hole DG17-867C: 24.4 metres of 1.64 g/t gold;
  • Hole DG17-892C: 21.4 metres of 0.99 g/t gold;
  • Hole DG17-888C: 7.4 metres of 1.19 g/t gold; and
  • Hole DG17-873C: 1.4 metres of 4.51 g/t gold.

“Catto has long been a target we were looking forward to test,” said John McConnell, Victoria president and CEO. “Not only does this zone fit well into the Potato Hills trend model, it hosts several historic past gold producers and has not seen any modern, systematic drill efforts to test for additional gold ounces.”

Victoria’s Dublin Gulch property includes the Eagle gold mine currently under development. The proven and probable reserves are 123.0 tonnes grading 0.67 g/t gold, containing 2.7 million oz. of gold. The property also hosts the Wolf tungsten deposit and the 13-km-long Potato Hills gold and silver trend.
