Independence Gold has released assay results for two holes completed at its wholly owned, 52-sq.-km 3Ts project in central B.C. One of these holes hit a long, high-grade gold-silver interval from near surface, returning 67.6 metres of 3.63 g/t gold and 132.83 g/t silver starting at 51 metres. This intercept includes higher-grade intervals, such as 5 metres of 11.38 g/t gold and 779.4 g/t silver from 54 metres and 4 metres of 33.34 g/t gold and 195.5 g/t silver from 110 metres.
The second drillhole returned 1 metre of 5.84 g/t gold and 66 g/t silver from 129 metres.
The two intercepts tested the Ted-Mint offset vein, which is in a faulted contact between the Ted and Mint veins to the north and south.
Based on the release, the 67.6-metre interval reported today is the widest vein interval reported from the property to date, and is made up of a semi-continuous quartz-carbonate vein. The Ted-Mint vein system remains open at depth and along strike.
There are 12 known mineralized quartz-carbonate epithermal veins at 3Ts, with a 2014 resource estimate for Tommy and Ted-Mint defining 5.5 million inferred tonnes, at 2.52 g/t gold and 71.5 g/t silver, for a total of 441,000 gold oz. and 12.5 million silver ounces.
The 3Ts project is 185 km southwest of Prince George and 20 km from Artemis Gold’s Blackwater gold project.
