Thesis Gold Contextualizes Historical IP Survey and Produces Targets for 2021 Drill Program

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 2:00pm

Thesis has identified eight untested target zones within the 6.65km2 IP survey area (50 m line spacing) based on geophysical responses associated with gold endowment that merit follow-up work during the upcoming field program.

Key Points: 
  • Thesis has identified eight untested target zones within the 6.65km2 IP survey area (50 m line spacing) based on geophysical responses associated with gold endowment that merit follow-up work during the upcoming field program.
  • Ewan Webster, President and CEO, commented, "The historical IP data was evaluated over existing drilling to establish a geophysical matrix specific to gold mineralization.
  • The IP survey was acquired in 2007, after the historical drilling on the project, and therefore was never utilized for drill targeting.
  • To evaluate these new targets a field-based exploration program will focus on soil and rock sampling in addition to detailed geological mapping to delineate drill targets for the Company's 2021 program.
