Greg Johnson and his team at Metallic Minerals (V.MMG) put out some brilliant sampling results today. Up to 12,000 gpt of silver.
“We are very pleased with the results seen thus far from the inaugural field exploration program at our Keno Silver Project, as they have validated our exploration methodology and clearly demonstrate the potential for additional new discoveries in this historic district. After undertaking a comprehensive review of historic and modern exploration information, we identified over 40 potential targets, prioritizing the top 12 for follow up in 2017. Our strategy has been to utilize the same systematic exploration approach that has resulted in new significant discoveries in the district by Alexco Resource Corp. The 2017 program specifically focused on areas hosting historic production, where high-grade silver occurs in the preferred Keno Hill Quartzite and Greenstone host rocks along the key mineralized structures that trend across the district.Results from the Keno Summit target areas have been very promising, with additional results from diamond drilling at the three most advanced targets at Caribou/Duncan and Homestake expected soon.”
Our pal, Metallic’s Chris Ackerman, was kind enough to send me this picture which he tells me is “Surface trench with high sulphide high grade material in situ, with rock hammer for scale”. It is going to be interesting to see what the Metallic drill program produces.
