Big Gold continuing Infill Sampling of historic core on Tabor Property near TBay

Dec 20, 2023

Big Gold Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of infill sampling as part of Phase 2 Exploration of the Tabor Property , situated within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt in the northwest of Thunder Bay.

The infill sampling program was completed at the MNDM Thunder Bay Core Library, which houses approximately 100,000 m of historic core from the Thunder Bay Mining District. The core library provided the Company access to historic core drilled in 1983 in the East Divide area, which yielded multi-element potential in multiple drill holes, such as RS-83-01, which intersected 0.76 m of 24.30 g/t Au, 65.10 g/t Ag, 0.82% Cu, and 3.68% Zn. 

Details of drill holes sampled are available in Table 1 and locations are available in Figure 1. Samples are currently being assayed and the Company expects results in early Q1, 2024. 

The infill sampling program provided the following at a low cost:

  • Review historic core and confirm lithology, mineralization, alteration, veining, and structures previously logged
  • Obtain photos of the historic core for future reference
  • Infill samples (half-core) in previously unsampled core (60 samples)
  • Resampled previously sampled core for confirmation of zones (26 samples)
  • Data can be used to reduce exploration and drill costs in 2024

"We express our gratitude to the Thunder Bay Core Library for granting us access to the invaluable historic core, enabling us to explore additional opportunities at the Tabor Project in a cost-effective manner," said Scott Walters, CEO of Big Gold. "These four drill holes represent significant cost savings for the company, contributing to our comprehensive understanding of the geology and validation of drill targets for our upcoming program. The ongoing process of cutting and lab testing is underway, and we eagerly anticipate sharing our results with the market."
