P2 Gold Starts Drilling at Gabbs
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- P2 Gold Inc. (“P2” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:PGLD) reports that drilling has commenced at its Gabbs Project in Nevada. Gabbs is located on the Walker-Lane Trend in west-central Nevada approximately 145 miles by paved road from Reno, Nevada.
“We’re off to a great start at Gabbs,” noted Joe Ovsenek, President and CEO of P2. “We announced the Gabbs acquisition on May 17, 2021 and within two months have completed satellite hyperspectral and ground geophysics surveys, initiated a metallurgical test program, hired an exploration manager, received a drill permit and mobilized a drill to site.”
Gabbs Phase One Drill Program
The Gabbs Phase One Drill Program consists of approximately 1,800 meters of diamond core drilling and approximately 8,000 meters of reverse circulation drilling. The diamond core drilling is expected to consist of six exploration holes totaling approximately 1,500 meters and two metallurgical holes totaling approximately 300 meters to collect samples from the oxide and transitional ore zones.
Due to the limited systematic exploration completed to date at Gabbs, the Company believes the full potential of each of the known zones of mineralization has yet to be recognized. The mineralized zones have not been tested along strike or at depth, and of the 494 holes drilled at Gabbs between 1970 and 2011, 180 holes (36%) ended in mineralization. Also, a significant number of holes drilled prior to 2004 were, depending on the focus of the operator, assayed only for gold or only for copper, not both metals.
A diamond drill rig has mobilized to Gabbs and has started drilling hole GBD-001, the first of six diamond drill holes in the Phase One Drill Program to test the strike and depth extent of the Sullivan Zone. A plan map for the diamond drill holes of the Gabbs Phase One Drill Program is available here.
Drill results will be reported on receipt. For further details on the Gabbs Project, please see www.p2gold.com/projects/nevada/gabbs .
Ken McNaughton, M.A.Sc., P.Eng., Chief Exploration Officer, P2 Gold, is the Qualified Person, as defined by National Instrument 43-101, responsible for the Gabbs Project.
