Tempus Resources hits gold of up to 5.2 g/t in first five holes at Blackdome-Elizabeth

The Blackdome drilling program has been expanded and once completed the rig will move to the Elizabeth sector of the project, where a second rig is planned to expedite and allow potential expansion of the planned drilling program.

Tempus Resources Ltd - Tempus Resources hits gold mineralisation up to 5.20 g/t at Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project
Samples from an additional five holes have been prepared and dispatched to the SGS laboratory in Vancouver for analysis

Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX:TMR) (FRA:4W0) has intersected gold mineralisation in the first five holes drilled at Giant Vein target with the Blackdome-Elizabeth project in British Columbia, Canada.

Results are in-line with projections for that location at Blackdome and indicate continuity of mineralisation along strike as well as a wider zone of mineralisation on the hanging wall and footwall of the Giant Vein.

The best result was 18 metres at 1.23 g/t gold from 121 metres, including 1-metre at 5.20 g/t gold and 11 g/t silver.

Assays have been received from five initial holes drilled at the northern end of the Giant Vein with assays for an additional five holes from the Redbird, No 17 and Giant Vein South targets pending.

“Excited” to advance drilling program

Managing director Brendan Borg said: “Initial drilling at Blackdome targeted the northern part of the Giant Vein to both confirm results from historic drilling and to extend mineralisation beyond the historical resource envelope.

“I’m excited to see what will come as we move towards the areas that were historically the highest grade at Blackdome, such as the No 1 and No 2 veins.”

Based on the initial published results, and what we have been observing in drill core to date, the drilling program at Blackdome has been expanded and is expected to continue for the next 3-4 weeks, focusing on the New Vein and the No 1 and No 2 veins, which historically were the highest grade.

Encouraging results

Other notable intersections include:

  • 2 metres at 2.56 g/t gold and 4.73 g/t silver from 143 metres;
  • 3 metres at 1.89 g/t gold from 139 metres, including 1-metre at 3.09 g/t gold and 2.37 g/t silver; and
  • 2 metres at 1.93 g/t gold and 3.95 g/t silver, from 49 metres.

The results are similar to historical drilling on the Giant Vein and add to the extensive body of data available for the Giant Vein, one of the key unmined areas at Blackdome where mineralisation extends to surface.

Samples from an additional five holes at the Redbird Vein, No 17 and Giant Vein South have been prepared and dispatched to the SGS laboratory in Vancouver for analysis with samples from an outcrop at the Watson Vein also pending.

Next steps

Based on the initial published results and what Tempus has been observing in drill core to date, the drilling program at Blackdome has been expanded and is expected to continue for the next 3-4 weeks, focusing on the New Vein and the No 1 and No 2 veins, which historically were the highest grade.

Additional sampling of historic core from Blackdome is continuing alongside the current drilling and sampling program, focusing on prospective zones of gold mineralisation associated with and surrounding the higher grade central vein portions that were not previously sampled or included in historic mineral resource estimates.

This additional sampling data will be incorporated in the dataset for the maiden JORC-compliant mineral resource estimate for Blackdome.
