Mildred Peak, Arizona Update
|Vancouver, BC---Enertopia Corporation (ENRT-OTCBB) (TOP-CNSX) (the "Company" or "Enertopia") announces five diamond drill holes have been completed by Altar Resources (Altar) with holes MP-12-01 and MP-12-02 currently being assayed. |
The Mildred Peak gold, silver and copper property is located approximately 65 miles south west of Tucson, Arizona in a general area of the State known to host porphyry copper deposits. There are two separate areas: The current diamond drill program is taking place on the lands upon which the Company has a Right Of First Refusal with Altar ( the "ROFR Lands") covering about 1,260 acres, north and adjacent to Enertopia's 100% optioned lands which cover an additional 7,148 acres.
The property vendor Altar has completed five diamond drill holes on the ROFR Lands with the objective of outlining a shallow low grade bulk tonnage gold / silver resource. Four of the Altar drill holes twinned historic exploration drill holes by Kalium Chemicals Ltd. (Kalium) in 1974.The drill program was initially planned to be a nine hole program with each of the holes being 300 feet in depth.
Due to the strong silicification encountered in the drill holes Altar deepened holes MP-12-03, MP-12-04, MP-12-05. Currently they are drilling hole MP-12-06.
Below are the historic Kalium drill holes that were twinned during the current diamond drill program at the Mildred Peak ROFR Lands (which have not been independently verified).
Below is a table presenting the six vertical holes, their twinned historic holes, and the total depth of each hole for Altar's current drilling program.
The silicified and mineralized Jurassic Metaconglomerate which hosts the mineralized occurrences on the ROFR land, including the historic Gold Bullion and Jupiter workings continues to the west, south, and east on the Company's property. At this time the true thickness of the mineralized zone is not known. Initial logging of the core displays significant alteration, including pyritization and silicification over drill lengths similar to the historic Kalium results.
"We are excited that the current diamond drilling will allow us to understand the relationship between rock types, structure and mineralization down to greater depths which should greatly enhance our knowledge on the property.," said Robert McAllister, President.
