Other highlights were the following:

Conrad Zone

  • 42.93 m grading 18.44 g/t gold in hole OS-12-114 (most significant gold intersection to date)

The Conrad Zone has a Carlin-type gold mineralization.

"Characteristic Carlin-type hydrothermal alteration, consisting of decalcification and silicification accompanied by the arsenic sulphide mineral realgar, is focused along the contact of limestone with an overlying shaly siltstone cap unit in the crest of the anticline," writes the company in its news release.

The Rackla Gold project is located in central Yukon, 55 km northeast of Keno City.
