Stewart, BC – Decade Resources Ltd (“Decade” or the Company) announces that it has been assessing all previous data on the Del Norte property in order to finalize the Company’s 2020 field season plans. The property located 34 kilometres east of Stewart, BC is comprised of 5,830.16 ha in 13 separate claims.
The property has numerous mineral showings with the most extensively explored being the LG vein and stockwork. Previous work has shown a continuity of gold silver values over an explored length of 1.7 km, open both to the north and south. The Company plans a work program consisting of geochemical sampling, saw cut sampling and extensive drilling. Saw cut sampling is planned in the Crackle zone, a 700 m wide zone with quartz-sulphide veins and stringers from cm to meter widths with high gold values associated with arsenopyrite. Continued geochemical sampling will be carried out in areas exposed by ablation of glaciers and to determine the source of high gold bearing float north along the extension of the LG vein. Past drill results indicate a widening of stockwork widths with increases of gold within deeper drill holes. Drilling amount will be contingent on funds available.
Areas that the Company will expand on previous drilling includes:
|Area to be Tested
||Previous Drill holes
|Only 2 holes drilled
|450 m n of area 1
|Only 3 holes drilled
|450 m n of area 2
|300 m n of area 3
The above assays are historical and have not been confirmed by the Company and are used for reference purposes. The Company believes that the results are an indication of the mineralization present in the property area.
Ed Kruchkowski, President of the Company states: “I have been involved in exploration programs on this property as a consultant on behalf of Teuton from 1992 to 2005. The sheer size of the property and numerous showings present excellent exploration opportunities. With the recent ice retreat, it is expected that even more mineral showings will be exposed”.
The Company has commissioned a 43-101 report to be prepared on the property.
