Independence Gold (TSXV: IGO; OTCQB: IEGCF) has announced assay results from the Ian vein discovered during the company's recent 4,000 metre drill program at its 100%-owned 3Ts project. The project is located approximately 185 km southwest of Prince George, B.C., and 16 km southwest of Artemis Gold’s Blackwater project.
The Ian vein was previously explored by a single drill hole in 1995. This is the first major new vein discovery at 3Ts in almost 30 years. During the 2023 drill campaign, three drill holes were designed to explore the extent of this vein based on field mapping and data compilation results. These holes were drilled towards the east and undercut a historical surface sample grading 11.59 g/t gold and 38.6 g/t silver.
Holes 3TS-23-27 and 3TS-23-28 successfully confirmed the presence of sheeted veins while 3TS-23-29 intersected the newly discovered Ian vein which exhibits a similar width and grade to the Tommy vein system, with an intercept of 6.98 metres grading 6.10 g/t gold and 66.05 g/t silver. The drill program has defined this vein system over a 100 metres strike length which remains open along strike and at depth.
The density of the veining associated with the grades provides new targets for future drilling and the potential to increase the global resource at the 3Ts project. According to the company, management continues to evaluate additional gold and silver projects for possible acquisition.
