Stewart, BC – Decade Resources Ltd (“Decade” or the Company) announces that it has received assays for surface sampling on the Dardanelle project taken in late June.
The Dardanelle showing consists of two quartz veins 0.3 to 2.0 metres wide, which occur intermittently along both contacts of a rhyolite dyke for 700 metres and a vertical depth of 180 metres. Sulphides observed in the veins include pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, argentite, galena, arsenopyrite, bornite, covellite and gold. A 1.2 metre long sample from the bottom of a shaft collected in 1918 assayed 9.3 grams per tonne gold, 61.7 grams per tonne silver, and 1.8 per cent copper. The historic sample has not been verified by qualified person for the Company and should not be relied on.
While drilling, grab samples were taken from three separate areas; the surface area of the old shaft, just east of the 2021 drilling and at the most eastern exposed part of the vein. Sampling was conducted to establish possible metal associations to aid in further exploration. Gold values have a direct correlation with higher sulphide content in quartz veins. This sampling established that the highest gold values are associated with elevated arsenic and lead. It also indicates that there may be a mineralizing event with elevated bismuth separate from one with elevated arsenic and lead. Highlights of 13 surface grab samples are shown below:
*Grab samples are solely designed to show the presence or absence of any mineralization and to characterize the metal tenor in this mineralization. Grab samples are by definition selective and not intended to provide nor should be construed as a representative indication of grade or mineralization at the Project; and the grab samples analysed from the Project reflect a broad range in grade from below detection limit to the grades highlighted herein.
2021 Drilling Dardanelle – Excelsior Area
The Company completed the following work in the Terrace area:
- 3 holes on Excelsior to test geological concept of mineralization related to a shear zone.
- 11 close spaced holes on Dardanelle to test continuity of quartz veining along the walls of one of the indicated rhyolite dykes.
This work indicated that mineralization at the Excelsior was related to syenite intrusions into the granodiorite host rocks. At the Dardanelle, numerous rhyolite dykes appear to be present rather than one dyke as indicated in past exploration.
The Company is awaiting the drill results for both the Terrace area properties (Excelsior and Dardanelle) as well as the Del Norte project (located in the Golden Triangle, 32km east of Stewart, BC).
