    • Strategic soil survey conducted between historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines on Black Diamond
    • More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t
    • Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t
    • Results are highly encouraging, company committed to further exploration

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its Geochemical Survey being conducted on its Black Diamond Property, located next to Freeport McMoRan’s open pit copper mines, and to provide details on recent diamond drilling completed on its patented Buckeye Project.

In efforts to unlock the potential of its Black Diamond Property, which borders the Porphyry Copper Mining District in Miami, Arizona, Northern Sphere has undertaken an intensive Geochemical Soil Survey over its 3,800-acre property culminating with a 35 Element Aqua Regia ICP-AES analysis.

In addition to using geochemical surveys and geologic, geophysical and outcrop sampling data, Northern Sphere is now employing “cutting-edge” Exploration Targeting Technologies to better and more precisely identify drilling targets. Such technologies use Hyperspectral Satellite Imaging in conjunction with ground geochemical data to re-compute existing geophysical survey data to depict more precise 3D signal locations.

Preliminary results from the first 250 geochemical samples analyzed are extremely encouraging. The strategic soil survey, which began near the historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines, demonstrated anomalous copper, zinc, and nickel values along with significantly anomalous (up to 344 g/t) silver values (see Figures 4 & 5). More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t (see Figure 3). Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t. A second set of 224 geochemical samples has been collected and shipped to ALS Laboratories for analysis.

During October, Northern Sphere personnel is focusing on geochemical grid sampling efforts on the documented copper anomalies located on the Black Diamond Property. An area of particular interest to Northern Sphere is a documented iron-copper-gold showing which had a Permit to Drill previously submitted to the Forestry Department.

Buckeye Patent – Diamond Drilling

Over the summer, Northern Sphere drilled 14 surface diamond drill holes on its patented Buckeye Project. The drilling targeted structures similar to those which apparently hosted sufficient quantities of silver to warrant extraction from the historic Buckeye Mine.

The drilling was successful in identifying anomalous silver values below several documented highgrade surface and underground showings. The drilling yielded anomalous silver below both the “Square Nail” shaft, and the former Buckeye Mine.

Thirteen of the fourteen holes drilled intercepted the perceived host structure up to 250 metres below the underground workings for a strike length of 400 metres. The width of the structure, and its corresponding alteration, varied between two and six metres. Of the14 holes drilled, 10 of such holes contained intercepts considered to be anomalous. The intercepts contained elevated silver and copper levels varying from 3 g/t to 179 g/t silver and upwards of 4,600 ppm copper. Table 1 depicts most of the noteworthy intercepts.

Combined with surface and underground samples, the diamond drilling has assisted in identifying four areas hosting anomalous to high grade silver (see Figure 5). The drilling results are encouraging and will assist with future drill targeting. Underground rehabilitation could provide better strategic diamond drilling platforms and would allow for the re-accessing of historic mineralized development.

In efforts to obtain additional prospective ground, Northern Sphere has been examining various properties including a contiguous patented claim known as the Newton Claim. During a recent visit to the property (private lands associated with the Buckeye Patent), several “float samples” were collected yielding significant silver grades (Table 2) among a larger primarily quartzite surface exposure.

GGX Gold Phase II Drilling Program intercepts 10.8 g/t Gold over 0.3 Meters at Gold Drop

Posted by Er at 9:49 AM on Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

 

  • Phase 2 of Drill Program now complete
  • 160m strike length
  • 10.8 g/t Gold over 0.3 Meters at Gold Drop

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GGX Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGX) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce the completion of Phase II diamond drilling on the Gold Drop Property near Greenwood, BC and receipt of additional drill core sample analytical results from drill holes COD17-15 to COD17-20. The Company recently ceased diamond drilling on the property and is waiting for additional Phase II core sample analyses which are expected any time.

 

The second phase of the diamond drill program aimed at exploring and defining the COD Vein, a Dentonia/Jewel style quartz vein, located in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone. Trenching during 2017 has exposed the northeast – southwest striking COD Vein for over 160 meter strike length.

The Company had previously received analytical results for 68 trench channel samples collected at the COD Vein. These samples returned anomalous to high grade values for gold, including high values of 43.2 grams / tonne (g/t) /t Gold and 224 g/t Silver (News Release of July 26, 2017). The first batch of 2017 drill core samples for the COD Vein returned up to 24.1 g/t Gold and 192 g/t Silver (News Release of Aug 28, 2017). The second batch of drill core samples also returned significant gold and silver values including a broad intersection in hole COD17-14 grading 4.59 g/t Gold and 38.64 g/t Silver over 16.03 meters core length with a high grade core grading 10.96 g/t Gold and 89.86 g/t Silver over 5.97 meters core length (News Release of Sept 7, 2017).

 

The Phase II drilling program aimed to delineate the COD Vein in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone from 2 pad locations in the northern extent of the trench, 100 and 160 m north of the COD mine shaft. The Phase II drilling totaled 12 holes (687 meters).

Drill core was geologically logged and sampled at the Greenwood facility. Drill core was sawn in half with half core samples submitted for analysis and remaining half core stored in a secure location. Core samples were delivered to the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver to be analyzed for gold by Fire Assay – AA. The samples from holes 15 to 20 were also analyzed for 48 Elements by Four Acid and ICP-AES / ICP-MS. Quality control (QC) samples are inserted at regular intervals.

The analytical results listed below are from holes COD17-16 to COD17-20, testing the COD Vein. Since true widths cannot be accurately determined from the information available the core lengths (meters) are reported. The Gold and Silver analyses are reported in g/t. The intervals listed in the table below are from the gold and silver bearing vein and / or adjacent low grade mineralized host rock. The Phase II drill core sampling also revealed other intervals with low grade gold in veining and / or host rock.

 

HOLE ID From (m) To (m) Interval length (m) Au g/t Ag g/t
COD17-16 35.56 35.86 0.3 10.8 123
COD17-16 52.21 52.33 0.12 11.45 99.3
COD17-19 20.37 21.34 0.97 1.42 9.88
COD17-19 49.03 49.41 0.38 2.28 16.4

 

“ We are very pleased with the results of the drilling, especially given the presence of significant gold and silver values along the COD Vein including a broad intersection in hole COD 17-14 grading 4.59 g/t gold and 38.64 g/t silver over a 16.03 metre core length” said Barry Brown Chief Executive Officer of GGX Gold.  “We look forward to receiving the results of the remaining assays and planning future work on the property.”
