EQS-News: North Peak Announces Next Stage of Drilling at Prospect Mountain North

11.07.2024  |  DGAP

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 11, 2024) - North Peak Resources Ltd. (TSXV: NPR) (the "Company" or "North Peak") announces that drilling at the Prospect Mountain North area has progressed and is now moving to the West side of the mountain within the Prospect Mountain Property (the "Property") in Eureka, Nevada.

The drill has finished the preliminary testing of the Industry and Silver Connor fault network and is now targeting the Duke, Banner and Silver Connor fault system in the Wabash area, where there are multiple historical mines including Wabash, Williams and Silver Connor and associated workings (see Figure 1). These faults are conduits for gold-bearing fluids for the regions' deposits and the dense fault network in the northern part of the property has similarities to i-80's Archimedes/Hilltop area and the historic Richmond/Eureka/Fad zones. Over 2.9 Moz's of gold has been produced to date in the Eureka camp. (Sources: (1) Gold in the Eureka Mining District, Nevada, by Shawe and Nolan (1989), US Geol Survey Bulletin 1857C: 1.45 Moz from 1869-1901 (Richmond-Eureka mine); and (2) NI 43-101 Report on 2021 Ruby Hill Mineral Resource Estimate, Eureka County, Nevada, USA by Wright and Walton dated effective 31 July 2021: 1.46 Moz from Archimedes Pit, 1998-2020).

The Wabash area was the focus of a comprehensive drilling campaign of 27,618 ft (8,418m) reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign in 1999 by European American Resources. Historical intersections by European American Resources include:

  • PM-W-11: 15.2 m @ 4.1 g/t Au + 59.9 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-12: 21.3 m @ 4.5 g/t Au + 35.0 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-13: 12.2 m @ 3.0 g/t Au + 38.7 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-92: 24.4 m @ 8.2 g/t Au + 22.6 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-74: 13.7 m @ 5.6 g/t Au + 60.8 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-50: 13.7 m @ 2.9 g/t Au + 42.3 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-52: 12.2 m @ 3.1 g/t Au + 8.9 g/t Ag
  • PM-W-55: 16.8 m @ 4.1 g/t Au + 25.3 g/t Ag

NOTES: grams per tonne=g/t; metres=m; using a 0.5 g/t Au minimum composite grade, and up to 25 feet internal dilution @ 0.01 g/t Au (1725 intersections are just anomalous zones identified for exploration); true thickness is unknown until orientations are proven; these drill hole results are pre-NI 43-101 and they do not meet the current standards of exploration quality assurance and quality control protocols-twinning of holes will be necessary. See the Technical Report (defined below) for full details of the historical drill results referenced above.

Mike Sutton, Director & Geologist explained, "Wabash was the focus of a systematic drilling campaign in 1999 and the intersections that were returned were interpreted as shallow dipping pods of mineralization. A new interpretation is that the intersections are aligning with the steeply dipping faults and if so, continuity of mineralization greatly improves and increases the tonnage potential and this has been supported by the finding of a sub-vertical mineralized fault at surface. The historical vertical holes are not suited to cut across sub-vertical zones."

The holes will be up to 900 feet in length, with several angled to test interpretation as well as a couple to twin historical intersections (see Figure 2).

Multi-element assays of the RC drilled holes indicates anomalous antimony and high arsenic and relatively low lead and zinc, consistent with the historical smelter observations, suggesting that the mineralization is of the "Intermediate" style noted in the area with mainly Carlin type characteristics, but also with a carbonate replacement type (CRD) signature.

Review by Qualified Person, Quality Control and Reports

Mr. Mike Sutton, P.Geo., a director of the Company, is the Qualified Person, as defined under National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, who reviewed and approved scientific and technical disclosure in this press release. The Qualified Person has not reviewed the mineral tenure, nor independently verified the legal status and ownership of the Property or any underlying property agreements.

About Prospect Mountain

The Property lies in the Battle Mountain Eureka trend, in an area known as the Southern Eureka Gold Belt, where three styles of mineralization have been identified, gold, silver Carlin style mineralization, Carbonate Replacement gold, silver, lead, zinc mineralization (CRD) and carbonate hosted Porphyry Related Skarn lead, zinc and gold mineralization associated with cretaceous intrusions. At the Property, the CRD mineralization is heavily oxidized to depths of at least 610m (2000ft) below the top of the ridge line.

A Plan of Operations is in place which covers part of the Property (totalling 81 acres) and entitles an operator to pursue surface exploration, underground mining of up to 365,000 tons per annum and certain infrastructural works. It includes a permit to extract water from a well and to build water containment facilities.

A more complete description of Prospect Mountain's geology and mineralization, including at the Wabash area, can be found in the NI 43-101 Technical Report (the "Technical Report") on the Prospect Mountain Property, Eureka County, Nevada, USA dated and with an effective date April 10, 2023, prepared by David Pym (Msc), CGeol. of LTI Advisory Ltd. and Dr Toby Strauss, CGeol, EurGeol., of Merlyn Consulting Ltd., which has been filed on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca under the profile of the Company and on the Company's website.
