Talisker Resources Ltd. is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s currently active Phase 1 regional geochemical program.
Talisker Resources Ltd. (“Talisker” or the “Company”) (CSE:TSK) is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s currently active Phase 1 regional geochemical program on its 100% owned claims covering the majority of the Spences Bridge Gold Belt and the newly defined Remington Gold Belt. A team of 22 geologists has been executing the 4,500 sample program, collecting silt fraction (177μm) samples from first and select second order drainage basins.
To date a total of 2,217 planned samples sites have been reviewed with 1,332 stream sediment samples collected. 885 of the planned sample sites were discarded due to either insufficient drainage incision, poor stream channel development, insufficient sediment material or overwhelming input from colluvial media. A total of 1,112 assays from ultra-trace ICP-MS analysis have been received with 220 currently outstanding. Geostatistical analysis of assay results has identified 22 anomalous basins within the 98th percentile defined by values above 37.5ppb 32 ppb Au and a total of 10 basins have been identified as highly anomalous with values above 100ppb Au (0.1g/t) to a maximum returned value of 315ppb Au (0.315 g/t). Mean sediment background value (50th percentile) has been identified as 1ppb Au.
“Our well-trained in-house team continues to perform executing well ahead of time and under budget,” commented Terry Harbort, President & CEO of Talisker Resources, adding that, “These additional results identify anomalies enriched from 37 to 315 times normal background values. For reference, Westhaven Venture’s Shovelnose discovery was based on a 68ppb gold stream sediment anomaly (https://aris.empr.gov.bc.ca/ArisReports/28704.PDF). At this stage of our project we have identified 14 basins with more than this level of gold.”
The Company has also defined eight multi-basin areas anomalous in gold and epithermal pathfinder elements. Phase 2 soil sampling, detailed mapping and geophysics have been initiated on these areas.
A summary of results to date is available on Talisker’s website.
Talisker will be providing the opportunity for shareholders and other interested parties to participate in a Webinar to be held at 12 pm EST on Thursday, October 24th. To join, please click on the following link – https://www.gotomeet.me/talisker-resources.
About Talisker Resources Ltd.
Talisker Resources Ltd. is a junior resource company involved in the exploration of projects in British Columbia, Canada. Talisker’s projects consist of several early stage Greenfields projects encompassing 264,014 hectares over 253 claims and three leases. Talisker’s focus is on its south central B.C. properties – Spences Bridge, Lola, Dora and Remington properties where the Company is undertaking an aggressive exploration program. The Company’s south central BC properties comprises 231,413 hectares representing ~85% of the emerging Spences Bridge Gold Belt.
Sample Preparation and QAQC
Sample preparation and analyses is carried out by ALS Global, at their laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Stream sediment sample preparation was includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, sieve samples to -180 micron (-80 mesh), retaining both fractions (PREP-41). Rock sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).
Gold and multi-elements in stream sediment samples is analyzed by aqua regia digestion of a 50 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for 53 elements (Au, Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, Hg, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Pd, Pt, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr) (Code AuMe-ST44).
Gold in rock samples is analyzed using fire assay of a 50 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) (code Au-ICP21). Multi-elements are analyzed by aqua regia digestion of a 0.5 gram sub-sample with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) for 51 elements (Au, Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, Hg, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr) (code ME-MS41).
