  • High-Grade Intersection of 2m @ 62.4 g/t

Tajiri Resources Corp. (the “Company“) (TSXV: TAJ) is pleased to announce excellent results from continuing trench sampling at the Epeius Project Guyana, South America where trenching is investigating the on-strike potential of ASX listed Troy Resource’s Limited’s Goldstar Prospect located on the southern boundary of the Project (Figure 1). 

The high-grade intersection of 2m @ 62.4 g/t Au was discovered after extending Trench 001 which as previously announced (Jan 07, 2021) had intersected 1m @ 16.2 g/t Au in its last metre.  The 2m @ 62.4 g/t is located 10m across strike from the 1m @ 16.2 g/t and between 4 & 6 metres from the eastern end of Trench 001.   Thus over an 11m interval the Company has delineated 3m of high-grade gold mineralization averaging 47 g/t Au.   The trench is almost orthogonal to the strike of mineralization and thus reported widths are ~ 90% of true.

The two high grade intersections are located on a sub-parallel structure to and approximately 1,000m north of Goldstar (Figure 2).  The 2m @ 62.4 g/t Au is situated on a major contact, which can be traced for over 15km, between mafic volcanic rocks and fine grained, variably graphitic, turbiditic sediments.   This mineralization is completely open down dip and along strike to the northwest and strike extensions are currently being trenched.  Immediately to the southwest the contact has been tested by 4 trenches over a strike length of 400m and has been demonstrated to host persistent but low-grade gold mineralization- peak value 2m @ 0.9 g/t.  Furthermore at between 4 and 8 kilometres southeast within the Company’s wholly owned Kaburi project the same contact is associated with significant drill intersections (e.g. 22m @ 2.7g/t Au) and soil geochemical anomalism of between 100- 3,450ppb Au.      

Significantly, the high-grade intersection reported today is associated with a pronounced mapped strike flexure in the sediment-volcanic contact from N-S to NW (Figure 2) related to a NW striking, 5-20m wide zone of shearing mapped in trenches proximal to the contact in this area.  In addition, the observed dip of the contact steepens from 60˚ to 85˚ over a distance of 30m between TR001 & TR004A and the contact exhibits a minor flexure which juxtaposes the shear zone and sediment-volcanic contact in Trench 001.  As such the proximity of the contact to a substantial shear zone and the change in “architecture” of the contact into what appears to be the preferred strike orientation of gold deposits in the district (e.g. Smarts, Hicks) can be viewed as favorable for extending this high grade zone.
