Group Ten encouraged by new soil anomalies at PGE project in Montana
Group Ten Metals (TSX.V: PGE) has announced that it has discovered four new kilometre-scale palladium, platinum, gold, nickel, and copper soil anomalies at its flagship Stillwater West project in Montana.
According to the Canadian miner, the anomalies were found following the 2019 soil geochemistry survey at the project’s Boulder and Wild West target areas. Precious metal values were up to 1.16 g/t Pt, 0.46 g/t Pd, and 0.47 g/t Au in soil.
“The new soil anomalies – Boulder, Blakely, Pegmatoid Ridge and Gold Ridge – are associated with and proximal to conductive high anomalies identified in electromagnetic geophysical surveys,” Group Ten said in a media statement. “Similar coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies are demonstrated in the more advanced areas of the Stillwater West project, with drill-defined mineralized zones.”
In the brief, the Vancouver-based company also said that two of the new anomalies show high levels of gold in soil, expanding the gold potential of the Wild West target area by up to two kilometres from drill-defined high-grade gold mineralization at the Pine Shear Zone.
The Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu project consists of 14 multi-kilometre-scale exploration target areas along a 25-kilometre strike length adjoining and adjacent to Sibanye-Stillwater’s high-grade Stillwater mines in the Stillwater Igneous Complex of Montana.
