TORONTO , July 15, 2021 /CNW/ - Bald Eagle Gold Corp. (" Bald Eagle " or the " Company ") (TSXV: BIG) (OTCQB: BADEF) is pleased to announce receipt of the final assays for the 2021 drill program and the initiation of a summer exploration program on the Hot Springs Joint Venture in Nevada (the " Property "), which is a 50%-50% joint venture between the Company and Osgood Mountain Gold LLC (the " Joint Venture "). The final assays from hole HS-2020-04 intercepted 148.2 meters of 0.34 grams per tonne gold starting at 181 meters down hole, and from hole HS-2020-5 intercepted several smaller zones of anomalous gold from 147 meters to 312 meters down hole (see below Table). These results together with Bald Eagle's previously reported results (see Bald Eagle's press release dated May 19, 2021 ) demonstrate the presence of significant gold mineralization at the Property.
The field campaign outlined a broad zone of anomalous gold with initial drilling along strike. The current drilling identified a broad zone of mixed oxide and sulphide mineralization associated with a chargeability feature from IP geophysics. Drillhole HS-2020-04, which was rotated 15 degrees from HS-2020-01, intercepted the mineralized zone approximately 50 meters north of borehole HS-2020-01.
Drilling intercepted mineralization from 150 to 350 meters below surface, with true vertical depth of approximately 350 meters to the base of mineralized zone (actual downhole depths of 180 meters to 390 meters and 180 meters to 330 meters). The chargeability feature associated with this mineralized zone trends North-South for more than 400 meters, has a footprint width of 440 meters, and is approximately 150 to 200 meters thick. Further drilling is needed to define the lateral extent and to investigate feeder structures. This zone is open along strike to the North and South.
Summary of Drill Results:
Mr. Sidney Himmel , President, CEO and Director, commented: "Intercepting gold in each of the holes of the initial program has confirmed gold potential at Hot Springs. The next steps will be further ground geology to further define the surface footprint and improve geologic modeling of the gold system. This work will help focus subsequent drilling for the best chances of significant discovery."
The summer 2021 exploration program that has been approved and funded by the Joint Venture includes:
- A dedicated program of geologic and alteration mapping over the current Dutch Flats Prospect area with outward extension covering much of the Property.
- Rock sample database generation to improve surface geological detail including aerial extent.
- Additional geochemical soil sampling to verify and expand data substantially beyond the Dutch flats prospect area. The area to be sampled is 3,000 meters by 3,000 meters.
- Expansion of the initial IP geophysical survey in order to identify and extend anomalous zones. The expansion work includes an additional 8 lines, each 3.8 kilometers long with coverage of 2.4 kilometers in a North-South direction, including the original three lines of IP.
- Further geophysics using Hybrid Source Audio Magnetotellurics surveying to identify geologic structures.
This summer exploration program is expected to extend into the fall with data becoming available by the early fall. Additional RC and Core Drilling, based upon current drilling and IP results, are in the permitting process and anticipated to begin in the fourth quarter.
The drilling program is being operated by Osgood Mountains Gold under the Joint Venture Agreement between Bald Eagle Gold Corp. and Osgood Mountains Gold.
Map Indicating Drill Hole Locations and Planned Geophysics and Additional Field Work
The Dutch Flats area includes Sections 16, 17, 20 and 21 of Township 38N40E. Additional work is being carried out to the North, East, and South-West of the drilling completed in 2020-2021 Program. Additional lines of IP and HSAMT are delineated in blue. Additional fieldwork is occurring in the regions within the red circle outlines.
The analytical chemistry programs were completed by American Assay Labs (" AAL ") of Sparks, Nevada, and ALS Global Geochemistry Analytical Laboratory (" ALS ") in Reno, Nevada . The program totaled 1,857.8 meters of core drilling. All results are being incorporated into the Project´s three-dimensional Leapfrog model.
The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved for disclosure by Michael Feinstein , PhD, CPG, and the "qualified person" for Bald Eagle within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (" NI 43-101 ").
All samples are collected and maintained in accordance with established QA/QC protocols. Analytical services reported in this press release were carried out by ALS Minerals, an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 & ISO-9001:2008 accredited laboratory. American Assay Labs is completing the preparation and further assaying for the last four holes. American Assay Labs is an ISO-17025 accredited laboratory.
The Hot Springs Property
The Hot Springs Property is a 50%-50% joint venture between the Company and Osgood Mountains Gold LLC. The Property consists of approximately 11,894 acres comprised of private mineral rights and unpatented federal lode mining federal claims. This location in north-central Nevada is located at the junction of the prolific Getchell Gold Trend and the northwestern Nevada Epithermal Province. Land position is situated approximately 25 miles West of the Twin Creeks, Getchell and Pinson Mines and 30 miles East of the former producing Sleeper Mine.
On March 5, 2021 , the Company filed an NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the Property, entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report, Hot Springs Gold Project, Humboldt County, Nevada " with an effective date of November 3, 2020 . A set of historical data exists for 8,175 meters of drilling across 91 drill holes. The historic drill programs outlined a near surface zone of gold mineralization in an area with dimensions of approximately 1,200 meters by 400 meters.
