Renaissance Gold Initial Exploration Drilling at Jupiter Project, Nevada Returns 9.1 m @ 1.10 g/t Au



White Rock, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Renaissance Gold Inc. (“Renaissance”) is pleased to report the results of the Phase one drilling program completed by its partner, Ramelius Resources Ltd. (“Ramelius”) (ASX:RMS) at the Jupiter Project in Nye County, Nevada. (See NR dated June 21, 2017).  Ramelius completed a seven-hole reverse circulation drilling program, totaling 3920 feet (1195 meters) representing a preliminary test of two target areas.  Six of the seven holes were drilled in the NE Pediment Gravity Target, and one hole was drilled as a first test of the Eagle Target (Figure 1).

Drilling on the NE Pediment Gravity Target was the focus of this first program and was designed to test the Tertiary-Paleozoic unconformity in the vicinity of a prominent NE structural trend interpreted from the gravity data.  A northwest fence of six holes was completed on this target.  Significant argillic alteration with up to 10% pyrite was observed in the Tertiary volcanic and volcaniclastic section in the the top portion of these holes and jasperoidal silicification was consistently encountered at the Tertiary-Paleozoic unconformity (Figure 2).

Anomalous gold mineralization was encountered in four of the six holes, hosted in high-angle structure and along the Tertiary-Paleozoic unconformity, with the best intercept of 9.14 meters grading 1.10 g Au/t in hole JURC001 (Figure 2).  One hole was drilled as a first pass test of the Eagle Target and did not encounter reportable gold mineralization. A tabulation of the assay results is shown in Table 1.

Table 1:  Tabulation of drilled gold intercepts, using a 0.1 g/t Au cutoff, and allowing 1.5m internal dilution

 

Robert Felder, President and CEO states, “We are quite pleased to encounter meaningful gold intercepts in our first drill program at Jupiter, and very much look forward to further drilling to test these and other target areas.  Our 2017 drilling programs on six, partner funded projects has been successful in identifying two Carlin-type systems under cover at Jupiter and Spruce East that have encountered significant anomalous to gram plus mineralization warranting follow up.

 

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

 

All samples were analyzed for gold at ALS Geochemistry in Reno Nevada, an ISO 17025 Accredited lab.  Gold was analyzed by 30g fire assays on 5 foot (1.52 m) samples.  Blind standards, blanks, and duplicates were inserted into the sample chain to account for 6% of samples.  Intercepts were calculated using a 0.10 g Au/t cutoff allowing up to 1.5 meters of internal dilution.  Drilling is insufficient to define a true thickness of mineralized intervals.
