Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN ) (OTCQB: ABNAF ) (Frankfurt: E2L2 ) (the "Aben" or the "Company") announces the results of the recently completed drill program from the Forrest Kerr Gold Project. The Company completed two holes for a total of 990.0 meters. The 2020 drill program tested for the mineralized extension of high-grade polymetallic mineralization on the west side of the Nelson Creek Fault Zone. Both holes were collared on the scree-covered west bank of the Boundary Valley, several hundred meters outboard from the main mineralized zone at North Boundary.

Hole FK20-71 encountered multiple horizons of polymetallic mineralization (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn) with the most uniform zone returning an average gold grade of 0.46 g/t Au (grams/tonne) over 37.0 meters (highest 1.0m value of 3.45 g/t Au). This horizon directly correlates with a drilled intercept from hole FK19-53 that averaged 1.2 g/t Au over 19m (located 70 meters above) and several surface samples (180m above) that returned gold values between 1.0 to 43.3 g/t Au. With limited drilling, this zone shows uniform gold grade mineralization over 180 m of vertical extent with a minimum surficial mineralized footprint exceeding 300 meters along strike. Notably, this mineralization is located west of the Nelson Creek fault zone, a structure that was previously thought to cut-off polymetallic mineralization west of the North Boundary high-grade mineralized zone.

FK20-72 tested for the potential of precious metal mineralization at the intersection of the NE-SW directed Blind Fault and the N-S oriented Nelson Creek Fault Zone. This hole encountered sporadic polymetallic mineralization adjacent to a strongly-altered fault-derived (mylonitic) rock package, but failed to encounter the structurally offset high-grade mineralization present at the North Boundary main zone (180m NE). A 19.0 m intercept with consistent low-tenor gold grades averaged 0.25 g/t Au between 453.0-472.0m downhole depth, roughly 350m below the surface of the North Boundary mineralized corridor.

The west-side mineralization is hosted within a volcanic to sub-volcanic Hazelton rock package with variably strong Quartz-Sericite-Pyrite (QSP) alteration, abundant quartz veins and a significant potassic component indicative of high-temperature fluids sourced from a proximal mineralizing heat source.

Both drillholes encountered highly fractured rock below approximately 55.0 meters of glacier-derived debris within and adjacent to the Forrest Kerr Fault Zone, a major crustal feature that provided structural pathways for mineralized fluids. Adverse weather in July, August and into September also affected the efficiency of drilling, which prompted Aben to suspend drilling after 990m of a planned 1500m.

The Forrest Kerr Property consists of 4 separate claim blocks comprised of 56 mineral claims (23,397 ha) and is owned 100% by Aben Resources. Numerous areas of interest have been identified since Aben began systematic exploration in 2016, with a total of 72 drill holes (22,958m/75,302') completed. The Boundary Valley (3.5 km x 1.0 km) hosts significant surface gold mineralization and complex structural intersections, both of which are important indicators of the potential for discovery of more sub-surface high-grade gold mineralization.

Aben CEO Jim Pettit states, "Despite the challenges the Company faced this season at the Forrest Kerr Project, we managed to identify a new mineralized zone that shows uniform gold values over significant intervals along strike and to depth. This is significant as the Nelson Creek Fault was previously thought to cut off polymetallic mineralization west of the North Boundary High Grade Zone. This definitely opens up the west side of the Boundary Valley for further exploration."

VIDEO — Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Now

Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Nowyoutu.be

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ... Realistically is there more upside for the dollar here, or for gold?' I think clearly I'm in the camp of favoring gold on that one," he said.

12 Largest Producers of Gold by Country (Updated 2022)

12 Largest Producers of Gold by Country (Updated 2022)

The gold price has tracked higher in the past few years, sparking interest in the biggest producers.

The precious metal’s price gains have come along with the uncertainty born from the global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as geopolitical turmoil.

These circumstances have left investors seeking safe-haven assets like gold. So far gold production levels have seemed to defy pandemic disruptions, but rising inflation is likely to push up costs for miners.
