Sanatana's drilling reveals continuous gold-bearing structure at Gold Rush Project, Timmins

Aug 9, 2021

Sanatana Resources Inc. has completed its first pass scout drill program on the Gold Rush project, located 25km west of Timmins. A total of 23 holes NQ diameter (3,113m) were completed on seven separate prospects. All holes intersected quartz veins, alteration and sulphides. There are numerous quartz vein hosted gold showings on the property and this scout program was designed as an initial test into the several most accessible prospects to help prioritise and focus future exploration on the project. The Company is releasing the results by prospect as results come to hand. Prospects that return the most interesting results will by prioritized for further work. 

At the North Shaft Prospect, the company completed seven NQ diameter holes, drilled in a series of three fences 50m apart. Previous surface channel sampling had revealed a NW-SE structure hosting gold. The drilling targeted this structure with a hole drilled at 45 degrees dip, and a second hole drilled from the same setup at between 60-70 degrees dip designed to intersect the structure at a greater depth. The middle fence received a third hole that stepped back and tested the structure at an even greater depth. Additionally, two small AQ diameter man portable drill holes were completed. This prospect received the most attention as the drilling revealed a shear zone with quartz veins with albite and ankerite and sulphides, all good visual signs of mineralization.
