TerraX Winter Drilling Extends Sam Otto Zone with 1.5 km Step-out Hole, Confirming a 2.2 km Long Mineralized Zone Open Along Strike and at Depth
TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSXV: TXR) (FSE: TX0) (OTC Pink: TRXXF) is pleased to announce assay results from the first 5 holes (2,003 m) of its 2018 winter drill program now underway on the Yellowknife City Gold project. Two of these holes (688 m) tested the Sam Otto South extension, confirming a 2.2 km mineralized zone that remains open along strike and at depth. These holes were drilled as a follow up to our surface sampling program done in 2017 (news release of Sept 26, 2017). That program indicated the Sam Otto zone may extend for 3.5 kilometers south of the main zone which was drilled over 750 m of strike length in 2016. Hole TSO18-035 was collared 1.5 kilometer south of the Sam Otto main zone and intersected a broad zone of deformation and alteration (150 m wide) that contained a mineralized zone assaying 2.16 g/t Au over 27.16 m, including 1 m of 23.1 g/t Au, and 2.44 m at 7.99 g/t Au.
