2019 Drilling Completed at Monroe, BC
Vancouver, British Columbia -- Highway 50 Gold Corp. (TSX.V -- HWY)
Highway 50 Gold Corp. ("Highway 50" or the "Company") reports it has completed drilling at its 50% owned Monroe project, located in southeastern British Columbia, for the 2019 exploration season. Two diamond drill holes were collared with the objective of offsetting stratiform lead/zinc mineralization and extensive Sullivan Mine style alteration previously discovered. Hole HWY-19-011 was completed to a depth of 1,011.3 metres and did not encounter the expected mineralized horizon at the projected target depth. The decreased level of alteration as well as the lack of host lithologies observed in nearby holes suggests the hole exited the sub-basin that is being tested and is hosting mineralization. With the data received from HWY-19-011 a second hole, HWY-19-012, was attempted with the objective of intersecting the host mineralization horizon between holes HWY-16-001 and HWY-18-007 where highly anomalous mineralization and intense sericite, albite, tourmalinite alteration has been encountered. The hole was lost at a depth of 414 metres in a major fault zone some 300 metres short of the projected target depth and did not test the target horizon.
To date, the Company has discovered a new buried zone of stratiform lead/zinc mineralization hosted within the Sullivan Mine stratigraphic sequence. The property has striking similarities in volume of alteration, depositional environment and structural and stratigraphic setting to the Sullivan Mine although no economic quantities of lead or zinc have been discovered. The Company has attempted twelve drill holes while managing to complete nine to the targeted depth with three holes lost due to adverse drilling conditions and were not completed to their targeted depths.
Technical drilling difficulties encountered in multiple drill holes at Monroe have made testing the property challenging. Management believe the possibility of discovering a significant deposit of lead/zinc at Monroe exists and further drilling will be required to completely evaluate the project.
