Galleon encounters more visible gold at West Cache

Feb 16, 2021

Galleon Gold Corp. has announces additional high grade results from its ongoing drill program at its 100% owned West Cache Gold Project, Timmins. 

  • WC-21-115 intersected 11.25 g/t Au over 6.0 meters (75 to 81 m), including 15.84 g/t over 4.0 m. The true thickness of these intervals is estimated at 96.6% of the intercept length resulting in 5.8 and 3.8 meter intervals respectively
  • Visible Gold ("VG") has been encountered in hole WC-21-142 close to the bedrock surface (85m)

Results from core hole 115 are important as they highlight strong results much closer to the top of bedrock and well up-dip from some of the better results obtained to date. Adjacent drillholes could provide additional intercepts once assays have been received. 

VG Encountered in Hole 142

Based on the success of intersecting Zone #9 in recent shallow angle drillholes, the Company is currently drilling a fence of similar angle holes along strike to the west. Hole 142, the sixth hole in this sequence of 10 holes, has encountered visible gold in a quartz vein at 85 meters. Importantly, this intercept is considered a step-out into an area with limited historic information and extends the prospective potential of Zone #9 further to the west.

The West Cache Gold Project is located 13 km west of Timmins Ontario, it is serviced by Provincial highway 101 and secondary access roads. It is situated along the Porcupine-Destor gold belt, approximately 7 km northeast of Pan American Silver's Timmins West Mine and 14 km southwest of Newmont's Hollinger Mine.
