Talisker Receives Permit and Initiates Drilling at Golden Hornet

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / August 25, 2021 / Talisker Resources Ltd. (‘Talsker‘ or the ‘Company‘) (TSX:TSK)(OTCQX:TSKFF) is pleased to announce that the Company has received a three year area based permit at its Golden Hornet gold exploration project in the Kootenay Mining District of south-central British Columbia. The Company has initiated diamond drilling with a fully funded exploratory phase of 12 diamond drill holes, totalling approximately 3,000 metres. The drilling will target high-grade quartz-sulphide veins, breccias and stockwork sampled during last year’s greenfields program.

Key Points:

  • Three-year drill permit received with 27 permitted pads
  • Initial phase of 3,000m drill testing strongly mineralized footprint of 500m x 300m north west trending sheeted vein system in the Hornet Zone
  • Surface trenching at the Hornet Zone was highlighted by 22.1g/t Au over 5.2 metres, 27g/t Au over 2.0 metres and 4.17g/t over 14 metres
  • The initial phase of drilling will test the down dip and strike continuity of trenched zones
  • Soil sampling conducted by Talisker in 2020 defined a 2.8km by 1.3km gold soil anomaly centered on the Hornet Zone
  • The mineralized system is controlled by series of sheeted and stockwork quartz veins hosted within a Jurassic intrusive complex and disseminated mineralization within large hornfels contact envelope

The Golden Hornet Project represents a large footprint intrusion-related gold system (IRGS) hosting sheeted veins containing high gold values associated with pyrite, arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite. Historic trenching returned channel samples of 22.1 g/t Au over 5.2 metres, 17g/t Au over 2.0 metres, 4.17g/t Au over 14 metres. In addition, broad halos of mineralisation surrounding the veins returned intercepts of 1.9g/t Au over 21 metres, 1.23 g/t Au over 12.5 metres, 1.32 g/t Au over 17.0 metres and 0.96 g/t gold over 14 metres. The main NW trending high-grade gold veins at the Hornet Zone outcrop continuously over a 500m x 300m area. Low grade gold mineralization occurs in stockwork sulphide veinlets between major sheeted vein sets that represent additional opportunity for bulk tonnage potential. B-Horizon soil sampling conducted by Talisker in 2020 defined a 2.8km by 1.3km gold soil anomaly (98th percentile) centered on the Hornet Zone.

Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker commented, “As our first greenfields drill project we are excited to test the Golden Hornet. Although we remain focused on our fully funded 100,000 metre resource drill out program at Bralorne, the Golden Hornet program is the culmination of the hard work our greenfields team has conducted over the last three field seasons building Talisker’s extensive project pipeline.”

Talisker Resources management team would like to extend its thanks to the Penticton First Nations for their open communication and field support moving forward through the project. Talisker would also like to recognize the Ministry and its various agencies and contractors for their efforts in keeping this project moving amidst the challenges that Covid 19 has presented.
