Delta Resumes Drilling at The Delta-1 Gold Deposit in Thunder Bay

Sep 29, 2022

Delta Resources Limited (TSXV: DLTA(OTC Pink: DTARF("Delta" or "the Company") has resumed drilling at the Delta-1 Gold Deposit in Thunder Bay, Ontario for approximately 1,000 metres to follow-up where Delta previously intersected significant visible gold.

This current drill campaign is a follow up to the previously announced drill campaign announced on May 11, 2022. From May 10 to June 6, 2022, Delta completed a total of 2,718.8 metres of drilling in nine (9) drill holes. A total of 1,793 samples were collected for gold and sent to SGS laboratories in Sudbury, Ontario for sample preparation and analysis. 

Visually, the mineralized zone appears to have been intercepted in all drill holes, potentially extending the gold zone to a strike length of up to 830 metres and a vertical depth of up to 250 metres.  Visible gold was observed in 4 (four) of the 9 (nine) drill holes, and rocks continue to be intensely silicified, sericitized, and ankeritized. 

Assay results from the previous drill program are still pending as some samples were sent for re-assay using metallic sieve method. Delta expects to report the entirety of the pending results in early October.
