According to an article by Caesar’s Report, Comstock Metals Ltd.’s (TSXV:CSL) December 2018 drill program at their Preview SW gold project in Saskatchewan returned some promising results. The five-hole drill program was focused on the North zone, where the company was following up on previously uncovered positive values.
The most recent program returned results in four out of the five holes with mineralization appearing close to the surface and in thick intervals. Highlights from the program include eight meters grading 7.47 g/t gold, 23.6 meters grading 3.6 g/t gold and 21.5 meters grading 2.87 g/t gold. Additionally, assay results returned some high-grade intervals with some lower-than-average grade materials that could still be considered economic. Most of the holes were drilled to confirm mineralization at depth, but the fifth hole did not encounter mineralization at a vertical depth of 150 meters. Comstock Metals also drilled two holes, 50 to 60 meters apart, to test the extension of the mineralization to the east and the west. Both of these holes intersected the main gold system.
Moving forward, the article believes that Comstock Metals will complete a step-out drill program to determine the total strike length. Currently, the known strike length is 60 meters with a true width of approximately 15 meters and a modeling depth of 120 meters.
