Cache Exploration Inc.(TSXV:CAY) is pleased to announce that it has completed drill holes KI17-001 and KI17-002 to a combined length of 496 meters as part of its summer drill program at Kiyuk Lake, Nunavut. Both holes were drilled in the Rusty Zone which has returned numerous assay results above 3.3 g/t Au.
A total of 100 samples from KI17-001 were shipped to the SGS Canada Inc. in Red Lake for gold analysis. In addition, 100 till samples from grid sampling at Kiyuk North were shipped for analysis to Bureau Veritas in Vancouver.
Rusty Zone Drilling
Drill hole KI17-001, in the Rusty Zone, is a step out from KI13-011, targeting the southward extension of gold mineralization intersected in KI13-011 which ended in 24.0 m at 2.5 g/t Au (previously reported). Drill hole KI17-001 was drilled to a depth of 287.75 m.
Drill hole KI17-002, also in the Rusty Zone, was designed to test the eastward extension of gold mineralization adjacent to the Rusty Zone discovery hole RU11-001 which returned 38 m at 4.2 g/t Au from surface (previously reported). Drill hole KI17-002 was drilled to a depth of 209.1 m.
Both KI17-001 and KI17-002 intersected multiple intervals of sulphide-bearing, carbonate-actinolite veining.  No assay results have been received for either drill hole.
Drilling at the Rusty zone is focused on defining gold mineralization at depth and at surface to the south east. This infill drilling will help move the Rusty zone towards defining a resource.  Drilling in 2013 demonstrated strong continuity of breccia-hosted gold mineralization within the Rusty zone.  
To view plan map of Rusty Zone, please click:
Rusty Zone is an area of intense magnetic anomalism where gold mineralization is characterized by brecciated sandstone with an infill of albite, actinolite, calcite, dolomite, quartz, and magnetite with abundant pyrrhotite and small grains of native gold.  
Highlights from previous drilling at Rusty include:

  • 52.4 m at 3.27 g/t Au from surface
  • 35.9 m at 4.95 g/t Au from 134.1 m
  • 61.5 m at 3.3 g/t Au from 159 m
  • 24.1 m at 3.40 g/t Au from 34.0 m

Gold Point Zone
Drilling at Gold Point will commence after completion of drilling at the Rusty zone. Significant step outs are planned at Gold Point where prospecting and ground magnetics have defined two new zones of possible extensions of the known Gold Point mineralization. These extensional zones – South Gold Point and East Gold Point respectively – were further defined by ground magnetics as zones of magnetite destruction coincident with east-west structures, which are identical to those found at the Gold Point zone.  Drilling in 2017 will target these new areas.

The Gold Point zone is a high priority target located in a 24 kilometre magnetic anomaly that will receive further drilling in this program.  
Previous drilling at the Gold Point zone returned:

  • 63.6 m at 2.84 g/t Au from 148 m
  • 12 m at 2.4 g/t Au from 120 m
  • 12 m at 3.9 g/t Au from 163.5 m

Grid Till Sampling
In addition to drilling, the field crew is continuing to grid till sample north of Kiyuk Lake where property wide geochemical sampling identified anomalous gold in lake sediment samples and widely spaced till samples.
