Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV:BVA,FWB:BRT) announced results from 2012 1,393 meter drilling at its Wind Mountain gold and silver property in northwestern Nevada. Twelve reverse-circulation holes were drilled at three separate targets.
As quoted in the press release:
Connector Exploration Target – Geological re-modeling completed late in 2011 suggested that the Breeze and DeepMin resources are not two separate deposits, as originally thought, but one relatively continuous deposit. Two holes were drilled from the same location in order to test this theory, one vertical and one angled -70 degrees to the west. Holes WM12-088 and WM12-089 are located approximately 200 meters south of the existing Breeze resource and both holes ended in thick zones of mixed oxide/sulfide gold mineralization, with the bottom of hole WM12-089 ending in10.7 meters of 0.935g/t Au and 33.7g/t Ag.
Zephyr Exploration Target – Two vertical scout holes were drilled to 183 meters and 133 meters depth, respectively, in this large, alluvial-covered area. Neither hole intersected the targeted host rock; however, overlying lake sediments contain long intervals of anomalous gold and silver (20-80ppb gold and 1-5ppm silver). These concentrations are similar to the values encountered in lake sediments that overlie the DeepMin resource.
