Angkor Gold Intercepts 29.9 g/t Gold Over 0.54m in Cambodia
Angkor Gold Corp. (TSXV:ANK) announced assay results from a further 8 drill holes from this season’s programs in Ratanakiri Province, Cambodia.
As quoted in the press release:
In OY12-061D, the value of 19.38 g/t Au over 0.2 m at 59.65m derives from the mean of duplicate analysis (19.85 g/t and 18.90 g/t) of the same sample. The value of 20.72 g/t Au over 25cm at 60.15m in OY12-064D derives from the mean of triplicate analyses (21.80; 19.25; 21.10 g/t Au) of the same sample. The value of 29.94g/t over 0.54m at 76.79m in OY12-066D derives from triplicate analyses (34.5; 50.5; 40.0 mean 41.7 g/t Au over 0.21m and 22.5; 25.9; 19.1 mean 22,5 g/t Au over 0.33m) of adjacent samples.
This consistency suggests that the “nugget effect” is not likely to be a big factor in evaluating these veins. All these narrow high grade zones are sulphide rich sections of wider, shear bounded, quartz-carbonate veins.
With the exception of OY12-068 AND OY12-069, all these results come from the east end of Border North Prospect, where similar encouraging values were encountered in the first phase of the drill program earlier this season. The map below depicts the location of the holes.
Angkor Gold President and CEO Mike Weeks said:
“We are extremely pleased with the recent drilling results returned on our Border prospect. This program has advanced our knowledge of the mineralized structure, and expanded our understanding of the geology in this area. This location is very accessible, and close to a major highway and power.”
