CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / September 19, 2023 / Kestrel Gold Inc. ("Kestrel" or the "Corporation", TSX-V:KGC) is pleased to announce preliminary results from the 2023 prospecting program on it's 100% owned King Solomon Dome property ("KSD"). The property is located in the Yukon portion of the Tintina Gold Belt, 35 minutes by road south of Dawson City, within the famous Klondike placer gold district. Creeks draining KSD have produced significant amounts of placer gold and Kestrel is evaluating the property's potential to host economic bedrock sources for this gold.
The target at KSD is an orogenic-style north-south trending quartz vein system located over an approximate 1.0 kilometre east-west by 2.2 kilometre north-south area. The 2023 program focused on the Dominion Creek drainage basin which drains the southern portion of the property. Prospecting of new road cuts and active placer pits in this area identified numerous areas of sheared, quartz veined, pyritic and carbonate altered bedrock or rubblecrop, sampling of which returned values ranging from <0.005 to 2.051 g/t Au. Gold recovered by the placer mining in this area is very angular, rough, and ragged and is often found attached to quartz or weathered pyrite cubes. Permits are in place and a reverse circulation drill program is currently planned to start shortly.
Rob Solinger, President and CEO of Kestrel, states: "Our 2023 prospecting program focused on brand new exposures located within placer mining pits and road cuts and encountered numerous areas of quartz veined, altered, and sheared bedrock. The gold being produced by the placer miner is very angular, rough, and ragged and is often found attached to quartz or weathered pyrite cubes, which we feel indicates that a source or sources is located nearby. The drill program, which is to start shortly, will test several altered and mineralized areas identified by our field crew."
Sample preparation was completed by Bureau Veritas Minerals at their Whitehorse, Yukon facility with analyses completed at their Vancouver, British Columbia facility. Rock sample preparation was by method PRP70-250 (Crush 1 kg to ≥70% passing 2mm - Pulverize 250 g ≥85% 75μm). All samples were analyzed using methods FA430 (30-gram fire assay and AAS finish) for gold and AQ300 (0.5g - 34 element ICP ES) for multi-element analyses. Bureau Veritas (Vancouver) is an independent, international ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited laboratory.
