Bravura plans exploration program on Grew Creek Gold Project, Yukon

VANCOUVER, July 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Bravura Ventures Corp. (CSE: BVQ; OTC: BRVVF; FRA: 23B) ("Bravura" or the "Company") announces its plans to carry out a basal till sampling program on the Grew Creek Gold Property (collectively, the "Grew Creek Property" or the "Property"), located in the Watson Lake Mining District in southeast Yukon.

The program will be designed to test gold values in basal glacial till in areas of mineral potential outside of the known high-grade Carlos Zone. The thick till cover on the property presents a difficult exploration challenge in finding other mineralized zones as it prohibits trenching and conventional geochemical surveying methods.  Limited basal till sampling was performed on the project previously and identified several till layers. The basal pre McConnel till will be the target for this sampling Program. The Program will utilize an RC drill rig to complete a thorough study and results will be interpreted considering ice-flow direction.

About the Grew Creek Property:

  • Bravura holds an option to acquire 90% of the Grew Creek Project from Golden Predator
  • Current Class 3 Exploration Permit
  • 19,000 m in 70 drill holes since 2010 by Golden Predator, highlights include:
    • GCRC11-3281: 68.0 m of 5.96 g/t gold and 24.1 g/t silver
      • Including 4.0 m of 63.15 g/t gold and 344 g/t silver
    • GC10-0012: 146.3 m of 1.72 g/t gold
      • Including 3.1 m of 17.93 g/t gold
      • Including 32.2 m of 2.80 g/t gold
      • Including 15.7 m of 2.90 g/t gold
    • GC11-2813: 92.0 m of 2.02 g/t gold
      • Including 44.0 m of 3.09 g/t gol

  • Exploration expenditures of more than $4.7 million by Golden Predator since 2010.
  • Year-round access in southeast Yukon, less than 1 km from gravel highway with powerlines crossing the project area

The near surface Carlos zone is the largest known area of gold mineralization on the property measuring 300 m along strike, 100 m wide and open at depth below 400 m and is defined by core and RC drilling. The Grew Creek Property is located adjacent to the Robert Campbell highway between Faro and Ross River and consists of 670 contiguous quartz claims totaling approximately 110 km² which are owned 100% by Golden Predator (subject to a 4% NSR). The property lies within the Tintina Gold Belt, an extensive regional system of dextral strike-slip faults which host multiple gold prospects and mines. 

The Tertiary stockwork epithermal gold mineralization at Grew Creek is hosted in Eocene felsic volcanics within a 4 km wide grabben. Stratigraphy consists of silicic-pyroclastics and epiclastic sediments bound by mafic lavas and overlain by Pleistocene gravels.  Mineralization at the Carlos zone occurs within silicic/phyllic altered volcanoclastics along a steeply dipping structural zone as electrum with lesser eugenite in banded epithermal quartz-carbonate-Kspar veins.

2.5 km southeast of the Carlos Zone, chalcedonic coliform quartz, geochemical path finders and trace gold mineralization have been found within epiclastic rocks at the underexplored Knoll Zone.

The property wasstaked in 1983 by Al Carlos and has seen geological mapping, geophysics, geochemical sampling, trench and over 290 drill holes with a composite length of more than 57,000m.
