White Gold drills 24.38 m of 23.44 g/t Au at JP Ross
WHITE GOLD Corp. has released additional reverse circulation drill results and trenching results from the Vertigo target on the JP Ross property, Yukon, C an ad a. These results included a significant extension of the discovery reverse air blast (RAB) drill hole, which extended the mineralization at depth and encountered a deeper zone of high-grade gold. The trenching performed further defined the mineralization at Vertigo and will allow the previously identified gold zones to be extrapolated to additional drill targets.

• JPRVERRC18-013 returned 18.59 grams per tonne gold and 188.8 grams per tonne silver over 6.1 metres from 24.38 metres depth, including 59.5 grams per tonne gold and 439 grams per tonne silver over 1.52 metres from 27.43 metres depth. The hole also encountered an additional zone of mineralization at 44.2 metres depth, returning 6.82 grams per tonne gold over 4.57 metres, including 18.5 grams per tonne gold over 1.52 metres from 44.2 metres depth. Drilled as a continuation of previously announced RAB hole JPRVERRAB18-0014, the overall intercept is 22.47 grams per tonne gold over 30.46 metres from surface, with individual samples ranging from two grams per tonne to 60.4 grams per tonne gold as well as trace to 388 grams per tonne silver.
• Three trenches were completed, each encountering significant mineralization, including trench JPRVERTR18-002, which returned results of 66.39 grams per tonne gold and 302 grams per tonne silver over five metres, including 109.93 grams per tonne gold and 486.4 grams per tonne silver over three metres.
• Trenching has identified a continuous body of high-grade mineralization that has been traced over a strike length of 55 metres, which extends to a minimum of 30 metres depth, based on drill testing conducted. This structure is one of at least 12 mineralized structures identified on the Vertigo target to date within a 1,500-metre-by-650-metre target area.
• Additional drilling, prospecting and soil sampling have also been conducted along the 14-kilometre structural trend that hosts the Vertigo discovery, with the goal of identifying similar high-grade gold mineralization. Results for this exploration work will be released in due course. “Spectacularly high-grade gold values are consistently being obtained from the Vertigo trend and these trench results confirm our model of strong structural control. We have successfully defined the trend and dip of the gold-bearing zones only a few months after initial discovery. These results provide further understanding of the Vertigo and show that the mineralization is more extensive than previously understood,” commented Rob Carpenter, a director of the company. “The trenching has given us key insights into the direction and orientation of the high-grade mineralization, which we have leveraged to complete prospecting work outside of the main target area, and we look forward to presenting these results in due course. Our 2019 program will aim to extend the geometry of these shallow gold zones, with our ultimate goal being to illustrate the continuity of grade and trend. The scale and footprint of the Vertigo zones and alteration haloes suggest the system may represent the most robust gold system discovered to date in the White Gold district.”
