Gold Mountain 2013 Exploration Extends Siwash North Vein
TSX-V TRADING SYMBOL: GUM
VANCOUVER, Feb. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Gold Mountain Mining Corporation (the "Company" or "Gold Mountain") has completed analysis of the 2013 exploration program on its 100% owned Elk Gold property, located near Merritt, British Columbia.
Drilling occurred on several deep IP anomalies south of the existing bulk sample pit. The targets were chosen based on the IP anomalies from 2010 through 2012 IP surveys plus the Titan IP survey anomalies identified in 2011. A third party, testing a prototype percussion rig completed all the drilling at no cost to the company. This drilling provided valuable data for future planning purposes.
Two holes (SLH13-003 & SLH13-004) tested the Siwash North 1300 vein 50m further down dip than previously to a maximum depth of 330m. Both holes returned anomalous gold values up to 4 g/t over 3m showing the significant depth extent of the 1300 vein. Because of the friable nature of the mineralized zones the percussion drilling may tend to smear results. The drilling confirms the 1300 vein remains open at depths in excess of 330m. One of the holes was drilled beyond the vein to a depth of 500m to test a deep Titan 24 resistivity anomaly. The drill hole encountered two mafic dykes rimmed with anomalous gold. A wedge core hole testing these two dykes will be considered for future programs.
A drill hole within South Showing (SSH13-001) to test a large resistivity low was stopped in a fault zone thought to be the source of the anomaly. Above the fault the hole encountered the silica breccia intersected in 2011 and 2012 drilling that had widths of up to 47.7m and gold grades of 0.7g/t over the entire 47.7m. The breccia was intersected 15m further down dip than previously drilled and found to carry anomalous gold of 0.17 g/t over a 12m width and is a target for future core drilling. This mineralized breccia is unlike the zones further north which carry gold primarily in pyritic quartz veins and has the possibility for a large volume, lower grade gold deposit.
Lake Zone drilling (SLH13-002) tested a Titan 24 resistivity high anomaly at 500m depth, as well as the known gold quartz veins nearer to surface. The near surface vein contained elevated gold assays of 1.15 g/t across 10m is the western and 100m down dip extension of a new vein discovered in 2012 drill hole SLD12-209 that intersected 43.5 g/t Au across 0.33m. Silica content increased within the deep resistivity zone, samples of which had anomalous gold assays 0.25 g/t across 9m.
Geologic mapping and soil/rock chip sampling was performed on the property's southern claims where a mineralized zone discovered in 2012 yielded grab sample assay results of 7.36% copper, 226 g/t silver, 0.24% zinc and 0.38% lead. The recent prospecting and sampling discovered a second mineralized zone 175m to the SE that assayed 6.3% Zn, 1.8% Pb and 12.1 g/t Ag across 30cm. A second sample 20m north assayed 0.11% Zn, 0.37% Pb and 368 g/t Ag. Continued evaluations of this new style of mineralization will occur as conditions permit.
Mapping east of South Showing located quartz float within the overburden suggesting the South Showing veining continues to the east beyond the most easterly 2012 drill section. Additional prospecting and mapping is planned for this area.
A map displaying the locations of drill holes and other zones may be found on the company's website.
