Barkerville Gold drills 8.6m of 17.45 g/t Au at Cariboo
ADDITIONAL DRILLING results from the continuing 130,000-metre phase 2 Island Mountain exploration and infill drilling program at Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd.’s flagship Cariboo gold project have expanded a veining corridor at depth in the Shaft zone. The company is currently exploring and delineating the Valley and Shaft zones with nine drill rigs, while drill 10 is expanding the known mineralization on the B.C. vein.
• IM-17-123: 5.76 grams per tonne gold over 20.30 metres;
• IM-17-140: 16.79 g/t Au over 4.00 metres;
• IM-17-141: 6.09 g/t Au over 20.40 metres;
• IM-17-141: 11.17 g/t Au over 3.40 metres;
• IM-17-143: 7.09 g/t Au over 34.30 metres;
• IM-17-146: 17.45 g/t Au over 8.60 metres. Drilling expands Shaft zone corridors to depth
The company is pleased to report that phase 2 stepout drill hole IM-17-143 has expanded to depth one of the Shaft zone veining corridors intersecting 7.09 g/t Au over 34.30 metres at a vertical depth of 425 metres below surface. This occurrence is located 50 metres downdip of recently reported drill hole IM-17-131 which averaged 53.26 g/t Au over 11.55 metres, 390 metres vertically below surface and represents an area at depth open for immediate expansion.
Located in the southeastern portion of the Shaft zone at a vertical depth of 300 metres below surface, IM-17-146 has discovered another new occurrence of high-tenor veining grading 17.45 g/t Au over 8.60 metres. Again, this new area is open for expansion along vein strike and to depth.
Selected drill results are shown in the accompanying table.

“The phase 2 drilling program at Island Mountain continues to yield strong results with respect to expanding upon the sizeable, high-tenor vein corridors that are potentially amenable to bulk underground mining methods,” said Paul Geddes, PGeo, vice-president of exploration. “As we continue to infill the Shaft zone and expand the known corridors, we are not only demonstrating the continuity but the size of this impressive gold system.”
We seek Safe Harbor.
