BRITISH COLUMBIA – Vancouver-based Pretium Resources is having extraordinarily good results at its Valley of the Kings bulk sample program and underground exploration drilling at the Brucejack project about 65 km north of Stewart.
An exploration hole, VU-201, cut 6,550 g/t Au uncut over 0.50 metres. For those of us old enough to remember, that’s 191 oz per short ton. Another exploration hole, VU-239, partially intersected the Cleopatra Vein, cutting 195.00 g/t Au uncut over 9.29 metres including 2,140 g/t over 0.50 metres and 1,425 g/t over 0.50 metres.
Bonanza grades were also returned from holes drilled for the bulk sampling program. Hole VU-221 interested 66 g/t Au uncut over 13.00 metres including 1,675 g/t over 0.50 metres. Hole VU-219 cut 698 g/t Au uncut over 2.97 metres including 2,340 g/t over 0.50 metres and 1,805 g/t over 0.50 metres.
Pretium noted that seven intersections in the latest results topped 1,000 g/t Au.
