Yukon junior adds to its gold and silver mineral resources

Rockhaven Resources (TSX-V:RK) updated its mineral resources to 686,000 indicated and 507,000 inferred gold ounces at its Klaza project in central Yukon.

Rockhaven says its updated mineral resource estimates incorporate results from approximately 13,300 m of in-fill and expansion diamond drilling completed subsequent to the 2015 mineral resource estimate, and utilizes results from recent metallurgical test work to revise cut-off grades.

Highlights are the following:

  • Indicated mineral resources of 4.5 Mt containing 686,000 oz gold and 14,071,000 oz silver (grading 4.8 g/t gold and 98 g/t silver) or 907,000 oz gold equivalent (grading 6.3 g/t gold equivalent).
  • Inferred mineral resources of 5.7 Mt containing 507,000 oz gold and 13,901,000 oz silver (grading 2.8 g/t gold and 76 g/t silver) or 725,000 oz gold equivalent (grading 3.9 g/t gold equivalent).
  • Pit-constrained resources significantly increased in tonnes and grade compared to previous mineral resource estimates, including the Western BRX Zone with 759 kt at an average grade of 9.5 g/t gold, totaling 232,000 oz gold in the indicated category.
