Damara Gold Expands Soil Anomaly with up to 18.1 g/t Au and 52.1 g/t Ag in soil and Sees Potential Bulk Tonnage Style Mineralization at Kodiak Zone

02.12.2021 | 15:15 Uhr | The Newswire
December 2, 2021 - Damara Gold Corp. (TSXV:DMR) (OTC:SLMZF) ("Damara" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Phase II soil sampling at the Kodiak Zone has expanded the size of the anomaly to 400 meters in width and 1.2 kilometers in length, with individual soil samples grading up to 18,067 ppb (18.067 g/t) gold and 52.1 g/t silver on its Placer Mountain Project south of Princeton, BC ("Placer Mountain" or the "Property"). Preliminary trenches excavated within part of the zone have intersected a swarm of parallel quartz-sulfide veining within mineralized and altered granite, suggesting the potential for a bulk-tonnage style system at the Kodiak Zone. Trench TR-03 returned 0.70 g/t gold across 44.5 meters at its southeastern half, and higher-grade sub-intervals included a 20 cm quartz-sulfide vein grading 29.30 g/t gold and 78.40 g/t silver. The maiden trenches have tested 130 meters of the 400 meters width and 180 meters of the 1.2-kilometer length of the soil anomaly.

Kodiak Zone Soil Anomaly Greatly Expanded

The Phase II soil sampling consisted of 660 samples collected in October of this year, with values ranging from below detection up to 18,067 ppb gold and 52.1 ppm silver. The east-northeast trending anomaly is 400 meters in width across the slope, which has only been partially tested by trenching. The length of the anomaly spans 1.2 kilometers with the western end continuing up the opposing side of the valley. On its eastern end, the anomaly trends underneath post-mineral volcanic cover rocks. The logging road across the center of the anomaly will be used to collar drill holes planned for the current program.

Orange iron oxide staining in logging road cuts within the Kodiak correlates well with anomalous gold-in-soil values. The Company is investigating the use of high-resolution satellite imagery to identify further areas of elevated iron oxides within logging road cuts across the Property, to aid in the planning of a 2022 soil sampling grid.

Trenching Results Indicate Potential for Both High-Grade and Bulk Tonnage Style Mineralization within the Kodiak Zone

The maiden trenching program at the Kodiak Zone, consisting of 110 continuous chip samples along a combined total of 322 meters in 4 separate trenches, was carried out across a flat and easily accessible logging road located at the north end of the soil anomaly. The southeastern half of Trench TR-03 ended in mineralization and returned 44.5 meters of 0.70 g/t gold and 1.53 g/t silver associated with a series of quartz-sulfide veins crosscutting iron oxidized and altered granite, suggesting the potential for bulk tonnage style mineralization. The zones of mineralization, alteration and veining within the granite are spatially associated

with small felsic intrusive dykes ranging in width from 3-30 cm. Higher grade subintervals within TR-03 include a 20 cm quartz sulfide vein grading 29.3 g/t gold and 78.4 g/t silver.

Trench TR-01 to the southwest intersected 8 meters of 2.56 g/t gold and 8.34 g/t silver including 0.5 meters of 31.2 g/t gold and 99.4 g/t silver.

Trench TR-02, the furthest southwest, intersected 4 meters of 3.0 g/t gold and 9.7 g/t silver.

Drill Program Update

Drilling on Placer Mountain is progressing at a rapid pace, despite setbacks due to the recent extreme weather conditions in Southern British Columbia. Some 1,169 meters of drilling have been completed in 10 holes, covering approximately 400 meters of strike along the Main Zone, a substantial increase to the strike length tested in 2020. The 2021 program has also led to a greater understanding of the geology and controls to mineralization at the Main Zone. Longer drill holes resulted in the intersection of additional veins within the zone as well. The drill rig has now moved to the Kodiak Zone, having successfully completed all the planned holes at the Main Zone.

There remains a backlog on cutting and sampling of the core due to the rapid pace of the drilling as well as disruptions from flooding in the local town of Princeton, however the Company remains on track to have all the core cut, sampled and in the lab by the holiday break.

Larry Nagy, CEO, commented "We are very pleased with the progress we've made so far with the program and the quality of the Full Force Drilling crew. Production has been good, and a significant amount of strike has been covered along the veining system at the Main Zone. We are excited to have the drill now mobilized at the Kodiak Zone, which has shaped up as a prime target area. The trenching and the phase II soil results are very encouraging and demonstrate a more robust gold anomaly than that at the Main Zone. We are very optimistic for the holes we have planned to test the zone's 400-meter width."
