Volcanic Gold borrar 6,4 g/t guld över 20 meter

Volcanic Gold (VG) har släppt nya borresultat där man kraftigt utökar sitt intresseområde kring redan befintliga guldtillgångar. Vad vi gillar med dagens release är att det verkar vara ett flertal grunda parallella guldtrender som sträcker sig mycket längre än vad som tidigare var känt. Detta borde utöka arealen som kan användas för open pit (dagbrott).

VG’s huvudstrategi är ju att bevisa upp en rejäl guldreserv på mellan 3-5 miljoner ounce så vi kunde inte önskat oss mycket bättre i detta tidiga skede. Ju fler resultat som kommer in i linje med dessa desto mer guld kommer VG kunna bevisa upp i framtida guldreserver.

Speciellt intressant var hål 133 där 10,4 g/t guld noterades på de sista  4 meterna av borrhålet. En uppföljningsborrning kommer naturligtvis genomföras här så småningom för att undersöka om guldet fortsätter med ner på djupet.

Volcanic reports further air-core drilling results at Mandiana Project, including 20m at 6.43 g/t Au, 4m at 10.4 g/t Au and 12m at 6.34 g/t Au

Expands near-term resource target from 1km to over 3km in length

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 12, 2017) – Volcanic Gold Mines Inc. (”Volcanic”) (TSX VENTURE:VG) is pleased to report further results of close-spaced air core (”AC”) drilling at its Mandiana Project in Guinea.

The drilling, immediately adjacent to Volcanic’s existing Inferred Mineral Resource (”Resource”) at Yagbelen (as reported on November 6, 2016), now shows the mineralized target area surrounding and along strike from the Resource to be over 3km in length, up to 500m in width and consisting of multiple parallel zones, as shown in red on Figures 1 and 2.

Fig. 2 Air-core drilling results (outlined in black) from southern extension to Yagbelen showing 1.25 km southward continuation of resource target.

This mineralized area is considerably larger than the surface projection of the Resource (1km by up to 200m; shown in magenta on Figure 1), thereby indicating the potential to significantly increase this Resource. Note that the maximum downhole depth from collar of AC drilling is 40m for the entire Yagbelen program. AC results therefore likely represent the surface expression of underlying mineralization.

Air core drilling is a technique that allows rapid, low-cost exploration beneath cover with the objective of providing targeting information for further mineralization. It has been used very effectively by Volcanic in the identification and refinement of resource targets for subsequent reverse circulation (”RC”) and diamond drilling. Volcanic’s near-term plan is to conduct such drilling within the target area identified by air core drilling, with the objective of defining an expanded resource.

Simon Ridgway köper 1,1 miljoner aktier i VG

Simon Ridgway tog nyligen över posten som styrelseordförande i Volcanic Goldmines. Med veckans inköp av aktier i Volcanic Gold visar han tydligt vad han tycker om den nuvarande värderingen av bolaget.

VG fick lite utrymme i Mining Weekly för en vecka sedan och trots att inget nytt kom fram så är det alltid trevligt när det skrivs om bolagen man har intressen i. Du kan läsa artikeln här.

Volcanic Gold – borresultat WAMA

Vi har fått nyheter från VG gällande de nyligen ingångna avtalet med WAMA. Trots att de hittade guld så kunde borresultaten inte bekräfta historiska borrhål och VG kommer därför inte genomföra affären som den var skriven enligt optionsavtalet.

Istället vill man omförhandla avtalet så att utspädningen av VG blir mindre eller ingen alls. Ursprungliga ägarna av WAMA har inga pengar och utan VG kommer ingenting att hända. Volcanic har nu inlett diskussioner om att betala för utvecklingen av WAMA mot att få en majoritetsdel av projektet.

Det är fortfarande Mandiana som är VG’s huvudprojekt så marknadens reaktion på WAMA Property kan tyckas något överdriven. Vi bugar och bockar och har passat på att öka vårt innehav. Det har varit lite tyst från bolaget en tid men nya borresultat lovas inom kort. Se nedan pressrelease:

Shallow RC drilling at the WAMA property returns intervals of 4m @ 30.57 g/t Au, 3m @ 19.39 g/t Au, 11m @ 3.16 g/t Au, and 1m @ 76.5 g/t Au within mineralized vein system

Identifies surrounding anomalies

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Sept. 18, 2017) – Volcanic Gold Mines Inc. (”Volcanic”) (TSX VENTURE:VG) reports highlights of exploration drilling at lands optioned from West African Mining Associates SARL (”WAMA”) in Guinea. To date, a total of almost 1,300m of reverse-circulation (”RC”), and over 4,000m of air-core drilling, have been completed at the WAMA property. Drilling took place within, and in the immediate surroundings of an area of historic drilling and artisanal gold workings at Farabakorou, as announced on April 18, 2017. RC drilling by Volcanic confirms the presence of vein-hosted mineralized intervals proximal to those returned by WAMA.

While Volcanic is encouraged by the results of this program and the mineralized potential that these represent, the historic drilling intervals reported by WAMA could not themselves be reproduced. As such, Volcanic is not in a position to proceed with the acquisition of the property on the basis of the option terms announced on April 18, 2017. Volcanic and WAMA are in discussions with respect to a revised transaction via which Volcanic would have the option to acquire a majority interest in the property through direct exploration expenditures, thereby reducing or eliminating shareholder dilution. Volcanic views this revised approach as being more appropriate to the stage of exploration of the property and market context, and moreover, remains highly encouraged by the proceptivity of its principal landholding, the Mandiana Project.

Air-core drilling beyond the original footprint of WAMA’s historic drilling reveals the existence of linear mineralized features over strike lengths of up to 1.5km (Figure 1). These are thought to represent the surface expression of underlying vein structures typical of the Siguiri Basin. Field mapping and interpretation of high resolution satellite imagery (Figure 2) has identified widespread evidence of artisanal gold mining activity, which elsewhere is known to indicate close proximity to bedrock gold mineralization. Such artisanal gold mining activity is seen to project immediately southwards of a linear zone of artisanal workings 6.3km in length and up to 550m in width at Tadibakourou (announced on July 26, 2017), at which coarse gold has been recovered from numerous shallow pits and shafts. The workings identified on the WAMA property suggest a potential continuation of this feature.

Further results will be reported shortly of drilling at Volcanic’s Yagbelen target at Mandiana, where field work remains ongoing.
