VR is focused squarely on targets for proximal, high temperature mineralization that are core to the overall CRD mineral system at Reveille based on an array of new geochemical data and element ratio vectors.
Group Eleven – ZNG ($.05) – $.115 (+$.015) – announced results from exploration drilling at the Gortdrum copper-silver prospect at its 100%-owned PG West project, Republic of Ireland. Highlights: Two holes (totalling 380.85 metres) were drilled 1.0 km and 2.2 km, respectively, from the old Gortdrum copper mine, along the main mineralizing structure – the “Gortdrum Fault Zone”; G11-4498-01 intersected 14.4 metres of 0.221% Cu and 2.1 g/t Ag (0.240% CuEq), including 0.80 metres of 0.620% Cu and 4.4 g/t Ag (0.660% CuEq) and including 0.90 metres of 0.387% Cu and 3.1 Ag (0.416% CuEq) at shallow depths (46.2 metres downhole; true width estimated at 60%); G11-350-01 intersected a broad zone of highly anomalous copper (31.7 metres of 0.080% Cu and 1.6 g/t Ag), including 1.6 meters of 0.532% Cu and 22.3 g/t Ag (0.736% CuEq) and 2.9 metres of 0.151% Cu and 0.5 g/t Ag (0.156% CuEq) starting at shallow depths (32.35 metres downhole; true width estimated at 60%); Results represent the first drilling at Gortdrum since 1975 and provide evidence for, not one – but a series, of parallel faults across several hundred metres and a strike of three kilometres
