Selwyn Resources revealed the geological core logging of the fourteen exploration drill holes in the Don Connector target between the Don and Don East deposits at Selwyn Project, Yukon Territory, Canada has confirmed thick intercepts of zinc-lead mineralization.
All fourteen drill holes were focused on confirming the direct link between two adjacent deposits, which provide opportunities for future engineering studies while Selwyn advances the feasibility study.
The project is owned by Selwyn Chihong Mining, the joint venture company owned by Selwyn and Chihong Canada Mining.
A total of 10,638.50 metres were completed in fourteen drill holes, resulting in identification of zinc-lead mineralization over an area of 600 metres by 225 metres, with a range in thickness from approximately 15 to more than 70 metres.
Upon receipt of all assay results from the definition drilling program, the data will form the basis for revised mineral resource estimates of the Don deposit.
The company said the new drilling data confirms the direct linkage between the 63 lens of the Don deposit and the Don Connector target.
Geological interpretation from the drilling also supports the shallowing of the dip of 63 lens at an elevation similar to zinc-lead mineralization in the adjacent Don East deposit.
