BRITISH COLUMBIA – Drilling at the Summit Lake project belonging to Vancouver’s TENAJON RESOURCES has returned core that assayed as high as 121.29 g/t Au (that’s over 3.5 oz per ton) in a 1.52-metre intersection. Other intersections included 1.59 metres at 34.44 g/t and 1.16 metres at 35.63 g/t.
The Summit Lake project is the site of the old Scottie gold mine, located 50 km north of Stewart. From 1981 through 1985, 95,426 oz were produced from ore averaging 16.20 g/t Au. When the former mine was shut down, employees made a non-NI 43-101 compliant estimate that there remained 120,000 tonnes of ore grading 19.13 g/t Au in the mine.
Tenajon’s exploration has confirmed the presence of four gold zones, three of which are open at depth and along strike. Looking at the Summit Lake photo gallery (posted at www.Tenajon.com), the viewer is aware that there are some geographical challenges inherent in mining these zones.
