ESO Uranium has reported the gold assays results in a seven hole, 850m drill program on the Donna Gold Property in South Central British Columbia, Canada.
The results indicate a strongly anomalous zone that extends west from the trenching and is open (as yet undrilled) further to the west along the soils anomaly.
The trenching reported significant gold values at surface, up to 29.66g/t Au over 2.5m reported earlier in August.
Gold mineralization is identified in six out of seven drill holes as broad anomalous zones (greater than 0.1g/t gold) with higher grade veining.
The company is very encouraged with this initial drill program as it further identified the targets on the western side of earlier trenching and a gold anomaly in soils that extends more than 1,600m (5,300ft) along the height of land between the Kettle River and Yeoward Creek.
Gold analysis were carried out by ALS Laboratory Group, an ISO 17025 minerals assay laboratory and all samples were fire assayed as a 30g(nominal) aliquot and the fire assay beads were analyzed by ICP-AES.
Samples over 1.00g/t were re-assayed as a 30g (nominal) aliquot of the original pulp and the fire assay bead was measured gravimetrically.
The company said that a winter drill program is planned for the Mikwam (Ontario) Gold project.
