Burrell Resources is growing its portfolio of precious metals assets in the Americas. The Company is currently focusing on the Antelope project in northeastern Nevada which historical drilling has identified gold mineralization and warrants further exploration.
The Antelope Project
The Antelope Property remains an underexplored, exploration-stage project with potential for advancement. The Antelope Property has been explored intermittently since the early 1980’s by a number of operators. Surface work and drilling was completed by Amselco Minerals Inc. and by Phelps Dodge Exploration. A total of approximately 12,025 metres of historical reverse circulation drilling was completed on the property. Additional surface work was completed by Dumont Nickel Inc. and Liberty Gold Corp. The historical work identified two gently west dipping, gold mineralized jasperoid lenses at Antelope. Gold grades are significantly elevated in proximity to steep, northwest striking faults, and diabase dykes. Ground gravity surveys completed by Liberty Gold suggest the presence of additional targets under pediment cover to the west, as well as to the east of the current drilling areas. Significant historical weighted average gold grades from past drilling includes:
|Hole ID||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)*||Au (g/t)|
*True thickness is interpreted to be approximately 90-95% of drilled width for most holes.
