Barkerville Gold Mines has announced the successful results of drilling at its Cariboo gold project in British Columbia. Not only were high grades confirmed at Cow Mountain, but the company made a new gold discovery – the Lowhee zone.
The Lowhee zone lies between the Cow Mountain and Bonanza Ledge deposits, east of the Lowhee fault. The first five holes drilled at the zone returned assays that include 30.80 g/t gold over 0.7 metre, 5.10 g/t over 6.0 metres, and 6.13 g/t over 5.2 metres. Barkerville says the Lowhee zone is interpreted to be the offset extension of Cow Mountain.
Infill drilling at Cow Mountain confirms the continuity of vein corridors with high grade intercepts including 83.19 g/t gold over 2.6 metres including 358 g/t over 0.5 meter; a vein corridor that assayed 9.60 g/t gold over 11.1 meters including a sample of 129 g/t over 0.5 meter; and 9.17 g/t gold over 10.3 meters including a sample of 60.70 g/t over 1.4 meter.
