June 3, 2021 - Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (FSE: 3PG) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the following corporate update on its three gold and silver exploration properties located in Nevada, USA. The Company’s focus in Nevada is based on several key factors:
With its recent funding, the Company is entering a key new stage in its growth into a successful precious metals company. The recent funding has already allowed an initial drilling program on its first project, the Silver Bow property, with drilling planned to start on its second project, the White Rock property in early June.
The Company’s three properties are outlined below.
The Silver Bow gold and silver property is located in Nye County, Nevada, about 40 miles east of the historic mining town of Tonopah.
The Silver Bow property contains several strong exploration targets, for both bulk-tonnage and high-grade gold and silver. The property has several defined drill targets. The primary target on the property is a mineralized twin flow-dome complex that Provenance believes may host a high-grade vein system at depth. This dome complex additionally contains a large breccia zone that is exposed on its north flank. Most surface samples of this breccia assayed potentially economic values in gold and silver, suggesting an open pit deposit.
Because it is private property that did not need permitting, the Company’s first drilling program was on its Blue Horse claim about four kilometers east of the primary flow dome target. This first drilling program consisted of 23 shallow reverse circulation holes. The drilling has been very recently completed and the results are being analyzed.
Provenance acquired the White Rock gold property located in northeastern Elko County from Ely Gold Royalties Inc. and expanded the property to 258 claims covering 5,160 acres. This expansion resulted from a new understanding of the gold system after review of historical drill logs and the Company’s field work. This new understanding has identified what the Company anticipates being a major gold mineralization system that starts at the surface. The Company believes the property hosts a large structurally controlled, sediment-hosted gold system similar to the Black Pine mine in nearby Idaho. The initial drilling program is designed to verify and expand on the historically identified gold zones, and to confirm the new mineralization model.
The first drilling program at White Rock is expected to start during the first week of June. This initial drill program will focus on a core area of gold mineralization that is more than a mile across. Most of the 65 holes that were historically drilled on very wide spacings were in this core area. Although most of the historic exploration intersected persistent and thick gold intervals, gold prices were low and the companies at that time sought higher gold grades than are currently being mined today. Those same grades that were intersected in the historic drilling are very attractive today. Additionally, the gold mineralization controls were poorly understood and strong gold intercepts along control structures were not followed up on. Provenance’s current understanding of the gold system today suggests significant expansion of the recognized area of mineralization is likely.
Provenance recently acquired the Mineral Hill silver property south of Carlin, in Lander County. Provenance is currently evaluating this historic high-grade silver mine from a new perspective, and plans to release more information about this acquisition in the near future.
