Go Metals Identifies IOCG Drill Targets

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 9, 2019) – Go Metals Corp. (CSE: GOCO) (“Go Metals” and/or the “Company“) is pleased to announce it has identified multiple large untested Iron Oxide Copper Gold (“IOCG”) drill targets on the 100% Go Metals owned Monster Project (“Property“) in the Yukon, Canada. Go Metals reports the following:

Highlights:

  • Completed new high-resolution detailed ground gravity and 3D inversion modelling
  • Significant new gravity anomalies coincident with magnetic and induced polarization targets at the Bloom and Beast
  • The Bloom gravity target now extends from surface to depth and is 1 km wide
  • The Beast target is now a 1.5 km wide blind gravity anomaly
  • IOCG signature confirmed by geophysics, alteration mapping, and chemistry including widespread mineralization at surface

The alteration and mineralization on the Monster is similar to that of the giant Olympic Dam and Carrapateena IOCG deposits. Like these deposits, the Monster is a large hematitic breccia zone that contains IOCG mineralization with high-grade copper and cobalt at the surface.

Slide deck and video presentation

This news release contains information that we have elaborated upon in our new slide deck and video presentation:

Bloom South target

The Bloom South drill target is characterized by a 500-metre-wide magnetic-high anomaly that is contained in a 1000-metre wide gravity anomaly. The gravity high reaches the surface around the periphery of the magnetic anomaly and is locally associated with surface mineralization. The Bloom South target is further confirmed by a chargeability high / resistivity low that is open to depth and overlaps with the magnetic anomaly.

The Bloom area has yielded high-grade surface showings commonly associated with high-density, proximal magnetic anomalies and assays up to 9.6% Cobalt (Co) and 3.8% Copper (Cu) in grab samples.

Beast target

The Beast target shows alteration vectors with increasing intensity towards the large newly identified covered gravity and magnetic anomaly. Local surface mineralization in grab samples has yielded up to 2.5 Cu%Eq peripheral to the target area.

The Beast drill target is a blind target with a depth to top of less than 100 m. The target consists of a large gravity anomaly of approximately 2.77 – 3.10 g/cm3that surrounds and partly overlaps with a magnetic anomaly. The easternmost limb of the gravity anomaly coincides with a pronounced IP chargeability anomaly of 39 mV/V.

Future drilling program

Go Metals plans to drill both the Bloom South and the Beast target with a 4500 metres combined RAB and diamond drilling program. Approximately 1500 metres will be drilled on the Bloom South target and 3000 metres on the Beast Target. The drilling will include borehole EM, televiewing, and potentially other analyses that may aid in the discovery of an IOCG deposit.

Context:

The most important targeting tools for IOCG mineralization are magnetics and gravity. Accordingly, Go Metals has put considerable effort into acquiring these data sets in high resolution. The upgraded data sets have now confirmed and identified new highly prospective IOCG targets on the Monster Property.

The best drilling targets consist of near-coincident magnetic and gravity anomalies close to surface confirmed by IP anomalies. This type of geophysical signature is indicative of IOCG mineralization globally and occurs on both the Bloom and the Beast target.

Data presentation

The gravity data presented above was collected by MWH Geosurvey. Quality assurance and control was performed both using MWH in-house protocols and by independent geophysicists from Southern Geoscience, a group with extensive experience in IOCG targets. The gravity inversions were generated from gravity stations at 100m spacing. The resulting voxels are roughly 11m in size and have an error of 0.03 mgal yielding an excellent signal to noise ratio.
