Delta Resources starts 2024 drilling program at Delta-1 in Thunder Bay

Jan 17, 2024

Delta Resources Limited will resume drilling at the Delta-1 Project in Thunder Bay, starting with a 5,000 metre drilling program. The program will be two-pronged with a number of drill holes aimed at increasing the gold inventory at the Eureka Gold Zone, while other drill holes will test new exploration targets defined at the end of 2023.

This drilling program and Delta's future exploration programs in 2024 are fully funded.

In 2023, Delta completed sixty (60) drill holes for a total of 19,620 metres at the Delta-1 project. This brings the total drilling at the property to eighty-six (86) drill holes or 26,288 metres, since Delta's 2019 acquisition of the project. Other exploration work at the property in 2023 include a geological mapping, prospecting and sampling program that covered approximately ten (10) square kilometres as well as a 3D induced polarization geophysical survey and a high-resolution drone magnetic survey.

Daniel Boudreau, P.Geo. and Manager of Exploration of Delta Resources Limited, is a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101, and will be supervising the drilling program. Mr. Boudreau has reviewed the technical information presented in this press release.

About Delta Resources Limited

Delta Resources Limited is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on growing shareholder value through the exploration of two very high-potential gold and base-metal projects in Canada.

DELTA-1 is Delta's flagship project, where the company is building gold ounces 50 kilometres west of Thunder Bay, Ontario, at surface and adjacent to the Trans-Canada highway. To date, the gold mineralization is defined over 1.8 km from surface to a vertical depth of 250 m. Highlights include drill intercepts such as 5.92 g/t Au over 31 m (incl. 14.8 g/t Au over 11.9 m), and 1.79 g/t Au over 128.5 m. The property covers 107 square kilometres and Delta has identified a 5 km long corridor of intense alteration and deformation at the property, on strike with the gold zone, that has yet to be thoroughly explored.

The DELTA-2 property covers 194 square kilometres in the prolific Chibougamau District of Quebec. The property holds excellent potential for gold-rich polymetallic VMS deposits as well as hydrothermal-gold deposits. Delta targets VMS deposits such as the LeMoine past producer where 0.76 Mt were mined between 1975 and 1983, grading 9.6% Zn, 4.2% Cu, 4.5 g/t Au and 84 g/t Ag.
