TerraX Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:TXR)

Price: $0.35

Cash estimate: $2.4 million

Project: Yellowknife City

Country: NWT

Resources: N/A

Project status: Additional drill results

  • TerraX Minerals announced the results from the initial three drill holes on the Crestaurum Zone on the Company’s 100 percent owned, 94.9 km2 Yellowknife City project in the Northwest Territories. The 13 kilometer long Yellowknife City property is the extension of the geology containing the 7.6 million ounce and the 5.5 million ounce Giant Mine and Con Mines.  The project is unusual in the NWT in that it is road accessible year round with an eight kilometre road to the Yellowknife airport where the Company has its core storage facility.  The project was bought after the previous operator Century Mining declared bankruptcy. Osisko Gold Royalties (TSX.OR) owns 9.2 percent of TerraX though the merger with Virginia Mines.
  • Highlights from the Crestaurum drilling include 7.00 meters grading 10.23 g/t including 2.97 meters of 23.69 g/t gold starting from a depth of 95 meters. The 4.0 kilometer shear zone has been drilled over 1.2 kilometers to a depth of 100 meters with three key high-grade shoots surrounded by lower grade material. As the nearby Con and Giant Mines were mined to depths of 1,800 meters and the current drilling at Crestaurum is limited to 100 meters, the Company has designed the 2015 drilling program to test for depth extension of existing shoots as well as additional high-grade shoots at depth.
  • Since acquiring the Yellowknife City project in January 2013, the Company has been systematically re-logging and re-sampling 200 historical drill intersections from the core stored in the Yellowknife core yard at the Giant Mine. Highlights from the re-assays of near surface drill holes include 5.0 meters of 62.9 g/t gold and 5.0 meters grading 20.66 g/t starting at 53 and 81 meters depth respectively. Since 2013, the Company has also completed a new airborne geophysical survey as well as a high definition LiDAR survey.

 

New Garnet Skarn Discovery: 25.80 meters at 2.32 percent copper, 1.63 g/t gold

Current Drilling: 7.0 meters at 10.23 g/t gold including 2.7 meters at 23.69 g/t gold; 6.73 meters at 3.36 g/t gold
