TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 2, 2021 / Talisker Resources Ltd. ("Talisker" or the "Company") (TSX:TSK)(OTCQX:TSKFF) is pleased to announce further drilling results from its Bralorne Gold Project in British Columbia. Hole SB-02020-023 (partial results only) are part of Talisker's resource drill out program which is currently underway with four drill rigs on site. This press release focuses on results from the Charlotte Zone, where broad zones of near-surface gold mineralization sit adjacent to the high-grade gold-bearing veins that remain the primary focus of drilling in 2021. Additional information on the Charlotte Zone is included in a separate press release also issued today.

Key Points:

  • Drilling has intersected additional zones of broad, near-surface gold mineralization at the Charlotte Zone that could provide optionality to the high-grade gold-bearing veins at depth.
  • Drilling continues to demonstrate structural continuity of high-grade gold-bearing veins at depth.
  • Talisker commenced its 50,000m infill drilling program with four drill rigs on site last month and has completed 4,354m to date.
  • A total of 4,125 samples are awaiting assay at the lab.

The Charlotte Zone represents near-surface gold mineralization occurring as broad intervals of stacked, parallel structures occurring adjacent and immediately above the high-grade veins at Bralorne West (see Figure 1). The Charlotte Zone outcrops on surface and several holes drilled by Talisker have intersected the zone starting at 90m below surface. To date, drilling has defined the Charlotte Zone over a strike length of 600m and a width of 270m.

Highlights from the Charlotte Zone include:

  • SB-2020-023
    • 1.16 g/t gold over 38.00m, from 80.50m to 118.50m
    • 0.81 g/t gold over 8.50m from 212.4m to 220.90m
    • 1.69 g/t gold over 13.35m from 407.00m to 420.35m

"Today's results further highlight the potential at the Bralorne Gold Project for broad zones of near-surface, bulk tonnage gold mineralization at Charlotte alongside the high-grade veins below that remain the primary focus of our 50,000m drill program in 2021. The discovery of the Charlotte Zone is a credit to our technical team who originally identified these shallower zones from historical drilling undertaken by the prior owner of the Bralorne Gold Project," stated Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker, who added, "The Charlotte Zone not only has the potential to provide a bulk tonnage option when we begin economic evaluation of the project but could accelerate the delivery of a resource estimate given the shallower drilling and wider drill spacing required for a National Instrument 43-101 technical report. Despite this success, we stress that the primary focus for the Company is the continued delineation of high-grade veins at depth."

Qualified Person

The technical information contained in this news release relating to the drill results at the Bralorne Gold Project has been approved by Leonardo de Souza (BSc, AusIMM (CP) Membership 224827), Talisker's Vice President, Exploration and Resource Development, who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

Sample Preparation and QAQC

Drill core at the Bralorne Gold Project is drilled in HQ to NQ size ranges (63.5mm and 47.6mm respectively). Drill core samples are minimum 50 cm and maximum 160 cm long along the core axis. Samples are focused on an interval of interest such as a vein or zone of mineralization. Shoulder samples bracket the interval of interest such that a total sampled core length of not less than 3 m both above and below the interval of interest must be assigned. Sample QAQC measures of unmarked certified reference materials (CRMs), blanks, and duplicates are inserted into the sample sequence and make up 9% of the samples submitted to the lab for holes reported in this release.

Sample preparation and analyses is carried out by ALS Global, at their laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Drill core sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).

Gold and in diamond drill core is analysed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) of a 50g sample (code Au-AA24), while multi-element chemistry is analysed by 4-Acid digestion of a 0.25 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for 48 elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr).

Gold assay technique Au-AA24 has an upper detection limit of 10ppm. Any sample that produces an over-limit gold value via the Au-AA24 technique is sent for gravimetric finish via method Au-GRA22 which has an upper detection limit of 1,000 ppm Au. Samples where visible gold was observed are sent directly to screen metallics analysis and all samples that fire assay above 3 ppm Au are re-analysed with method Au-SCR24 which employs a 1kg pulp screened to 100 microns with assay of the entire oversize fraction and duplicate 50g assays on the undersize fraction. Where possible all samples initially sent to screen metallics processing will also be re-run through the fire assay with gravimetric finish provided there is enough material left for further processing.
