Integra delays resource estimate after drill hit



Integra Resources (TSXV: ITR; US-OTC: IRRZF) will delay an updated resource estimate for its DeLamar gold-silver project in southwestern Idaho after drill core from a step out hole nearly half a kilometre from the project’s current resource assayed 2.53 grams per tonne gold equivalent over nearly 110 metres.

“Relative to everything we did in 2018, this one drill hole in particular is a real game changer for us in the grand scheme of things,” Integra president and CEO George Salamis says in an interview with The Northern Miner. “Because it’s such a big step out, ultimately with this hole we think we’ve added a lot of resource potential.”

Hole 59, collared 400 metres from DeLamar’s current inferred resource and 260 metres from the nearest hole in the project’s Sullivan Gulch area, cut 109 metres grading 1.71 grams gold and 69.03 grams silver from 383 metres downhole. The hole ended in mineralization, with the last 20 metres averaging more than 4 grams gold equivalent — roughly four times the average grade of the project’s resource.
