Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 17, 2019) – Bayhorse Silver Inc. (TSXV: BHS) (the “Company” or “Bayhorse“) has confirmed the presence of visible gold in historic Brandywine core, from 2010 Auramex Resources drilling, that has been securely stored.
Two 1.5 meter sections of the historic core, including unsampled sections, show multiple occurrences of visible gold (VG) are present. The entire core is being relogged and photographed prior to splitting, and submission for re-assay. Re-assayed core will be subject to metallic screen assay to resolve potential gold nugget effects.
Auramex drilled three holes in 2010 to follow up La Rock’s drill holes at the 400 ft by 300 ft by 250 ft Dave’s Pond (DP) mineralized zone.
Upon permitting and additional financing, the Company intends to conduct a larger VTEM airborne survey over the Brandywine project, and drill a minimum 4 scissor holes across the DP zone to fully understand the orientation and depth of the gold bearing zone.
Based on a comprehensive review of historic reports, the Company has dramatically expanded the Brandywine precious metals rich VMS project near Squamish BC, to 1,500 hectares from 400 hectares. The project now includes areas west of the original claim group where a historic rock samples included 9.15 g/t gold, 22 ppm silver, and 2% copper located 600 meters west of the original claims, and 0.12 ppm gold, 6.5 ppm silver and 0.4% copper located 1.4 km west.
The readily accessible, 1,500 hectare, brownfield Brandywine project has undergone several mining and exploration phases including bulk tonnage shipments to smelters, extensive drilling, and extensive geochemical and geophysical studies, (2018 Brandywine Minfile Report) Mineralization extends over an area more than 3.6 km east to west and 2.4 km north to south.
The Company advises that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to verify the historical sampling results. Chip & grab samples are selected samples and may not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.
