Silver Range has commenced spring exploration work in Nevada. A crew has mobilized to begin work on generative projects until late May. A second crew will be mobilized shortly to begin exploration work on the Yuge Property with partner Trifecta Gold Ltd. (TSX-V: TG).
The Yuge Property covers the Columbia and Juanita Mines which produced on a small scale between 1870 and 1937. Most recent reported production was 2,350 tons in 1936-37 from the Columbia Mine. Gold on the Yuge property occurs with arsenopyrite in mesothermal quartz veins and adjacent wall rock in sub-parallel shear zones up to 60 m wide and over 1,200 m long. Selected surface grab samples collected on the property by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology reported assays up to 15 g/t Au and similar samples collected by Homestake Mining Company reported assays up to 53.0 g/t Au. Highest gold grades were reported from near-surface oxidized vein material where documented run-of-mine sorted ore assayed greater than 34 g/t Au and reported sampling of a crown pillar returned 2.4 m @ 16.8 g/t Au including 0.6 m @ 50.7 g/t Au. Sulphide ore occurs at depths greater than 30 m with arsenopyrite-rich material reportedly assaying greater than 17.4 g/t Au. A reported true-width drill intersection in this material at 49 m depth returned 3.3 m @ 9.70 g/t Au. Historical drilling intersected gold mineralization or open stopes in all holes reported but only to a maximum depth of 100 metres.
In Nunavut, Silver Range intends to conduct prospecting, geological mapping, sampling and geochemical surveys at its wholly-owned Tree River project during the summer months. Tree River is located 155 km southeast of Kugluktuk near the Arctic Ocean. The property is underlain by mid- to late-Archean gold-bearing conglomerate similar in stratigraphic setting, lithology and style of mineralization to recently discovered gold mineralization in the Pilbara region of Australia by Novo Resources Ltd. Historic sampling by BHP Billiton and Strongbow Exploration Inc. delineated a 30 metre thick quartz pebble conglomerate over a strike length of at least 4.8 kilometres carrying background gold concentrations of approximately 100 ppb Au and numerous occurrences of gold returning grab samples assays greater than 1 g/t Au with best results up to 142 g/t Au. Channel sample results at the best showing returned up to 0.35 m @ 63.15 g/t Au. In addition to the work planned for Tree River, Silver Range intends to conduct a regional prospecting program to locate similar style mineralization elsewhere in the Anialik Greenstone Belt.
