StrikePoint Gold Inc. (SKP:TSX.V; STKXF:OTCQB) announced in a news release that surface sampling showed new veins and extensions and returned up to 3,840 grams per ton (3,840 g/t) silver at the past-producing Porter silver property in British Columbia's Golden Triangle.
Detailed mapping and sampling were done in two areas devoid of previous sampling, where terrain is steep and ice recession extensive. One of the locations was on Porter west side, next to the historical Silverado mine. There, extensions to the previously developed #2 and #4 veins were discovered and demonstrated 1,170 g/t gold and 1,385 g/t silver, respectively.
The other area of sampling was 2 kilometers away on Porter's east side, at the Prosperity-Porter Idaho mines. Sampling from there showed new mineralized structures.
Overall, assays showed the presence of silver, lead and zinc. Nineteen percent of the assays returned silver of a grade equal to or greater than 20 g/t. Grades of lead ranged from trace to 12.45%, and those of zinc went from trace up to 5.56%.
"Our exploration work on the Porter Property continues to progress, connecting the historic high-grade, direct shipping past producing mines at Prosperity/Porter Idaho on the east side of Mount Rainey with the Silverado Mines on the west side, located over two kilometers away," CEO Shawn Khunkhun said in the release. "We are clearly looking at a high-grade silver vein system located within view of the mining town of Stewart, B.C."
"With a strong treasury, we look forward to an aggressive drill program in 2021 with the objective of connecting these two famous operations. Additionally, results from our 2020 drill program at the high-grade Willoughby gold-silver Property will be released shortly," Khunkhun concluded.
