Scottie Resources Corp. (TSX.V: SCOT) reports new assays from the Blueberry Contact Zone, which include nine meters that assayed 9.79 g/t gold and 161 g/t gold over 1.3 meters, as well as additional testing that has extended mineralization to a total vertical depth of 390 meters. The Scottie Gold Mine, 35 kilometers north of the town of Stewart, BC, was a past producer, and the Blueberry Contact Zone is located two kilometers north-northeast of it, along the Granduc Road. The zone is 100% owned and royalty-free.
Blueberry’s results continue to support gold mineralization over 1.45 kilometers and down to a depth of 390 meters, which remains open horizontally and in-depth. The Contact Zone has been drilled successfully, and the more we drill, the more compelling the target becomes. President and CEO Brad Rourke.
About the Blueberry Contact Zone
The Blueberry Zone is located just 2 kilometers northeast of the Scottie Gold Mine in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle region. Historic trenching and channel sampling of the Blueberry Vein include results of 103.94 g/t gold over 1.43 meters and 203.75 g/t gold over 1.90 meters. Despite high-grade surficial samples and easy road access, the target was significantly advanced during Scottie’s 2019 drill program when an interval grading 7.44 g/t gold over 34.78 meters was intersected in a new splay-off zone of the main Blueberry Vein. The drill results received in 2020 and 2021, coupled with surficial mapping and sampling, suggest that this splay is, in fact, a major N-S mineralized structure, of which the Blueberry Vein was only a secondary structure. The Blueberry Zone is a mineral deposit located on Granduc Road in Canada. It is 20 kilometers north of the Ascot Resources’ Premier Project. The deposit is 720 meters long and 225 meters deep. It is believed to have the potential to be much deeper. The mineralization at the adjacent Scottie Gold Mine has a vertical extent greater than 450 meters. The Blueberry Zone is located on Granduc Road, 20 kilometers north of the Ascot Resources’ Premier Project, which is refurbishing its mill. Newcrest’s Brucejack Mine is located 25 kilometers to the north.
Quality Assurance and Control
Gold assays were completed at SGS Minerals in Burnaby, BC, on samples collected during the 2022 field season. Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Mumford, a secure chain of custody was maintained for storing and transporting the samples. The fire assay with atomic absorption spectrometry and gravimetric finish was used to assay gold (+9 g/t Au). The samples were analyzed by four acid digestion with multi-element ICP-AES analysis, and silver and base metals over-limits were re-analyzed by emission spectrometry as necessary.
