White Metal discovers 3 new gold zones at Tower Stock Gold Project near Thunder Bay

Sep 27, 2021

White Metal Resources Corp. has discovered three new gold zones and has assay results for five diamond drill holes from the Phase 2 drilling program from its Flagship Tower Stock Gold Project. The first new gold zone, named 110 Zone, was drilled to test a high priority DasVision 3D-IP geophysical target, and the second and third new gold zones, named Star Zone and C & M Zone, were found at surface as part of the ongoing prospecting and mapping program. The Phase 2 drilling program totalled 3,760 m in 20 drill holes (TM-21-98 to 117) with 11 drill holes reported to date.


  • Successfully extended Bench Zone down-dip to the southwest.
  • A Zone: 3.94 g/t Au over 23.8 m (from 3.7 m).
  • New drilling discovery 110 Zone: 0.44 g/t Au over 141.50 m including 1.02 g/t Au over 7.5 m.

New Surface Discoveries

  • Star Zone: 24 rock grab samples, taken over 450-m-long by 250-m-wide area, ranging from 8 ppb to 2.83 g/t Au, with 14 of the 24 samples assaying over 0.1 g/t Au.
  • C & M Zone: two rock grab samples assayed 5.27 g/t and 2.33 g/t Au. 
  • Popa Zone: two rock grab samples, taken over a 10-square-metre area, assayed 3.05 g/t and 2.94 g/t Au.

Michael Stares, President and CEO of White Metal, commented, "We are extremely pleased with the progress of our exploration to date. Yet again we have demonstrated, through drilling and our ongoing prospecting and mapping program, that there are still lots of surprises at the Tower Stock Gold Project. With only one year of exploration on the Property we have made several new discoveries such as the Ellen and 110 Zones and have expanded the Bench and D Zones. Prospecting, mapping and soil sampling have proven very effective with a number of additional untested surface areas discovered including the C & M Zone, Star Zone and Popa Zone. We look forward to receiving the results of the remaining drill core assays, that includes the extension drilling of the Ellen Zone, the 04-36 Zone, and an untested IP anomaly in the area to the south of the 04-36 Zone. The Tower Stock Gold Project, unique due to its excellent location, great infrastructure and impressive geology, has delivered exceptional gold grades over wide intervals, including some very exciting high-grade gold intercepts."
