VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triumph Gold Corp., (TSX-V: TIG) (OTCMKTS: TIGCF) (“Triumph Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce positive results from drilling at the Blue Sky Zone on their 100% owned, 200 km2, road accessible Freegold Mountain Property in the Yukon Territory with the intersection of 218.39 metres of 1.26 grams per tonne (g/t) gold equivalent** contained within 304.39 metres of 1.00 g/t gold equivalent**.
Triumph Gold President, Tony Barresi (Ph.D., P.Geo.), comments: “It is with great pleasure that we announce positive drill results from the Blue Sky Zone, the second of three areas tested for high-grade, gold-rich porphyry style mineralization during the 2019 field season. Earlier in the season, drilling at the WAu Breccia met success, intersecting two mineralized zones that combined to form a very good intersection of 601.80 metres* averaging 1.1 g/t gold equivalent**. That success now continues with another long and rich intersection, three hundred meters away, at the Blue Sky Zone. As we continue to intersect and improve our understanding of these high grade breccia bodies, we build capacity to discover more of them and enhance the outcome of incorporating them into a future resource model.”
Technical Highlights Include:
- Intersection of the Blue Sky Porphyry Breccia, beginning 70 metres closer to surface than anticipated, resulting in 304.39 metres* (191.61 – 496.00m) of 0.64 (g/t) gold (Au), 5.9 g/t silver (Ag) and 0.23% copper (Cu), including:
• 219.39 metres* (191.61 – 410.00m) of 0.84 g/t Au, 6.9 g/t Ag and 0.27% Cu,
• With a higher grade included intercept: 51.17 metres* (270.00 – 321.17m) grading 1.43 g/t Au, 6.6 g/t Ag and 0.31% Cu.
