Visible Gold in First Holes Drilled into No9 Vein at Elizabeth

PERTH, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2022 / Tempus Resources Ltd (“Tempus” orthe Company”) (ASX:TMR)(TSX.V:TMRR)(OTCQB:TMRFF) is pleased to announce that it has intersected wide zones of mineralisation containing visible gold in two drill holes targeting the No. 9 Vein (EZ-22-19 and EZ-22-20) at the Elizabeth Gold Project in Southern British Columbia, Canada.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Tempus first ever holes drilled into No. 9 Vein at Elizabeth Gold Project (EZ-22-19 and EZ-22-20) have both hit multiple intersections of visible gold
  • Current drilling has intersected zones of quartz veining up to 25 metres in width at No. 9 Vein with multiple grains of visible gold observed at various intervals
  • No. 9 Vein is a previously mapped vein, approximately 120 metres north west of Blue Vein but it had never been drilled by Tempus

Tempus Resources, President and CEO, Jason Bahnsen, commented” The visual indication of wide zones of mineralisation containing visible gold in both of our first drill-holes holes completed on No. 9 Vein is extremely encouraging. The No.9 vein has been subject to little exploration since it was discovered. With the addition of No. 9 Vein to Blue Vein and SW Vein we now have three closely spaced veins under development at Elizabeth. We are anxiously awaiting the assays.”

The No. 9 Vein is a previously mapped vein approximately 120 metres north west of Blue Vein. Some limited exploration had been performed on No. 9 Vein in the 1940s and 1950s. However, records available to Tempus were not conclusive and the Company had never drilled the vein until these first two holes recently completed. Based on the exciting progress from EZ-22-19 and EZ-22-20, Tempus plans to complete five drill-holes on No. 9 Vein this drilling season.

The mineralisation observed in the drill core is summarised below.

DDH EZ-22-19

Drillhole EZ-22-19 was completed to a depth of 201 metres and intersected two quartz veins.

  • From 135.67 – 137.5m (1.83 downhole meters): Brecciated/sheared light greyish white quartz vein; the breccia matrix is consisting of strong pyrite and arsenopyrite with grains of visible gold observed in the vein and at the contacts.
  • From 162.92 – 163.42m (0.50 downhole meters): Light pinkish white quartz vein with moderate pyrite and arsenopyrite stringers.

DDH EZ-22-20

EZ-22-20 was drilled on the same azimuth as EZ-22-19 (284 degrees) but at a steeper dip (67 degrees) to target the vein below the two quartz veins intercepted in EZ-22-19.

EZ-22-20 was drilled to a total depth of 270.00m. The hole intercepted a 25.75m zone of sheeted veins from 85.50m and a second quartz vein intersection of 2.25m from 206.45m.

  • The core is highly broken and oxidized to depth of 113m. The veinlets are very irregular generally <10cm wide and are running along the core axis (from 1 – >10 degrees) in highly oxidized diorite.
  • The veinlets contain localized pyrite and arsenopyrite with visible gold observed in multiple locations across the entire 25.75m zone (94.8m, 95.9m, 97.4m, 97.6m, 105.7m, 109.1m, and 111.1m).
  • The second quartz vein intersection from 206.45m to 210.70m. The vein is cream coloured, oxidized in fractures with stringers of fine to very fine pyrite-arsenopyrite with chalcopyrite.

See the interpreted cross-section in Figure 2 that shows the location of the observed quartz vein and visible gold intersections in drill holes EZ-22-19 and EZ-22-20. Figure 1 and Figure 3 show the location of the No. 9 vein parallel to and adjacent to the Blue Vein and the SW Vein.

With reference to the AIG 2015 guidance for visual reporting of massive sulphide mineralisation, the Company reports it has not encountered any massive sulphide mineralisation in drill hole EZ-22-19 or EZ-22-20. While it is not possible to accurately estimate the percentage of visual gold present though out the drill core, the Company suggests that the percentage would be less than the 0.01%. The Company cautions that visual observations of visible gold are not a proxy or substitute for laboratory analysis. Laboratory assays and analysis will be required to confirm the visual interpretations presented in this news release.
