October 18, 2023 - Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its initial reverse circulation confirmation drilling program on its Eldorado Gold Property in Eastern Oregon. The final hole of this initial program, ED-11, yielded strong results, despite being terminated above its intended target zone.
Table 1 – Composite Assay Results for ED-11
Rauno Perttu, Provenance’s CEO, and an Oregon-Certified Engineering Geologist, commented “The results from ED-11 are outstanding, with continuous gold mineralization from the surface to its bottom at 118 meters (387 feet). This is especially the case as we planned the hole to 244 meters (800 feet) to penetrate our newly recognized deeper gold zone, yet we hit our highest intervals in the entire program above our intended target. Our initial program was conducted to begin to confirm and expand on the historic drilling, and we are exceeding all our expectations.”
Eldorado Gold Project Summary
The magmatic/hydrothermal mineralization located at Eldorado is interpreted as a porphyry gold system. Mineralization is controlled by both strong fracture development and pyrite veining coincident with gold mineralization. Pyrite veining and its oxide equivalent, is common with gold being found in veinlets, fractures, and hydrothermal breccia.
The initial 2023 drill program was conducted to begin to confirm and expand on 242 historic holes that were drilled prior to the Company’s involvement with the property.
Eleven holes have been drilled by Provenance to date, totalling 1446 metres. A summary of the drilling program, its focus and results will be reported in the coming weeks. Select samples have been sent for additional analyses, with results pending. Those results will be reported as they become available.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
The Company has implemented a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with the National Instrument 43-101 and industry best practices.
The RC drill chips were sampled at 1.5-meter intervals onsite. Samples were taken to Paragon Geochemical, an ISO 9001 compliant company in Sparks, Nevada for fire assaying for gold. A rotation of certified standards, blanks, and field duplicates were inserted into the sample stream approximately every 30m. The company QA/QC, as well as the laboratory inserted standards, blanks, and duplicates were monitored closely upon receiving assay certificates from the laboratory. No issues with respect to the QA/QC of assays have been detected to date.
The technical content disclosed in this press release was reviewed and approved by Jo Price, P.Geo., M.Sc., and a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101").
