Stewart, BC — Decade Resources Ltd (“Decade”) reports on the results of the 2017 sampling program on the Dardanelle property. The property owned 100 % by Decade Resources Ltd. is located about 20 air kilometers east of Terrace, B.C., on the northern slopes of Zymoetz (Copper) River valley. The property consists of 14 contiguous mineral claims which are approximately 1340 hectares in area. The property includes a significant mineral occurrence with the MINFILE status of: “Developed Prospect” (103I 107). At present all the historic underground workings are not accessible and sampling in 2017 was along the strike of mineralization.
The Dardanelle prospect (Minfile 103I 107) has been briefly described as a 5-7 metre thick steep system of albite dyke and quartz veins along the dyke contacts, the system trending at about 75 degrees and hosted by granodiorite of the Coast Plutonic Complex. The reported mineralization includes pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, argentite, bornite, covellite, malachite and native gold. The reported assays are highly diversified and include some high grade gold (up to 27.9 g/t) and silver (up to over 20 opt) and some substantial grades of lead, zinc and copper.
The MINFILE capsule geology quotes that “In August 1983, a report suggested that the property contains reserves of approximately 181,440 tonnes grading about 7.5 grams per tonne gold and 17.1 grams per tonne silver (George Cross Newsletter Nov.13, 1984)”(op. cit. Minfile 103I 107). However, the Company has not confirmed the suggested resource and it is used for reference purposes only.
Twenty two samples collected from areas outside of the known mineralization returned significantly elevated concentrations of gold. Three samples contained more than a few grams of gold per tonne, including the best one with18.8 g/t Au. Most of these samples also contained significantly elevated concentrations of silver with the best at 77.1 g/t Ag.
A recommended program for 2018 includes geological mapping, trenching and diamond drilling.
