TORONTO, April 1, 2020 /CNW/ - Talisker Resources Ltd. ("Talisker" or the "Company") (CSE:TSK) (OTCQB:TSKFF) wishes to provide an operation update on its exploration activities at its 100% owned Bralorne Gold and Spences Bridge projects located in British Columbia.
At the Bralorne Gold Project, Talisker is undertaking a 11,200m drill program targeting high-grades veins at the project. The Company advises that it has temporarily suspended drilling operations for good practices in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Encouraging early results, reported earlier today, for the first hole of the drill program intersected 27.3g/t over 0.6m and 16.45g/t over 0.5m. Prior to suspension of operations, the Company had completed a third of the planned drill program. Additional results are pending and will be announced when available.
"Although we have not encountered any cases of COVID-19 at the site, we have made the decision to temporarily suspend operations out of concern for our employees and out of respect for our Indigenous partners and other local community members who are concerned about the introduction of the virus to the area from outsiders travelling to site," commented Terry Harbort, President & CEO of Talisker, who added, "We are maintaining a minimum level of staffing to ensure we are in compliance with all of our environmental requirements while having other staff members work from home advancing fundamental vein modelling, legacy data and vein targeting tasks during this difficult and uncertain time. With the drill remaining on site, the Company will be in a position to rapidly re-commence operations when this crisis has abated."
At the Spences Bridge Project, Talisker has completed the planning for the continuation of its phase 1 regional stream sediment and geological reconnaissance program where the Company is collecting 4,500 steam samples over two field seasons. The phase 1 program commenced in May 2019 and was concluded for the first season in November 2019 with approximately 50% of the program having been completed. Similar to the 2019 field season, 22 geologists will be undertaking the program which has been rescheduled to commence June 1st instead of May 1st to accommodate restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
