Rokmaster Resources Corp. (TSX.V: RKR) recently announced that RR22-102a, a drill hole at Revel Ridge, encountered strong sphalerite-galena mineralization (sphalerite and galena are minerals) in a silicified limestone around the core barrel at a depth of 222.5 meters. The drill intersected the mineralization in RR22-102a, a wedge hole that was closed due to equipment wear at 222.5 meters. RR22-102a intersected the mineralization in a second location, the Yellowjacket Zone (“RRYZ”), at a depth of 206.90 meters to 211.50 meters. This location is 65 meters from RR21-50, the nearest drill hole to the RRYZ.
Drillhole RR22-102a is located in the Main Zone (“RRMZ”) at a depth of 287.3 m, which overlies a thick carbonate unit. The RRMZ consists of footwall quartzite packages in RR22-102a. The favorable carbonate-quartzite contact in the RRMZ is indicated by meter-thick massive sulfide bands, which may be laterally extensive, as the distance between RR22-101 and RR22-102a is 95 m. These broad and successful step-outs are external to the block model mineral resource estimate.
John Mirko, the President, and CEO, stated that the results of the Drillhole RR22-102a add to the strength of the RRMZ and the Yellowjacket Zone. He also mentioned that the goal of the 2022 drill campaign had been met. Furthermore, Rokmaster has located a favorable geological setting for hosting wide intersections of the RRMZ. Lastly, work is progressing well on the PEA update, considering the 2021 mineral resource estimate and the recent metallurgical breakthrough.
