Avino Silver and Gold Mines of Vancouver is very pleased with the initial assay results from the drilling of the 27 vein extension target at the Bralorne mine near Gold Bridge. The company says the results confirmed the continuity of the vein up-dip from the area of historic production.
The highest assay was 29.56 g/t gold over 0.88 metre (all true widths). Other holes 3.24 g/t over 2.3 metres and 2.31 g/t over 0.96 metre; and 7.86 g/t gold over 0.32 metre and 4.21 g/t over 0.71 metre.
Avino says the initial drilling campaign has delineated a target that measures 150 metres along strike and dips approximately 290 metres. The current phase one drilling that began Q4 2018 and will continue through Q2 2019 will focus on underexplored parts of known veins. Phase two will follow until Q4 2019 and target new discoveries in unexplored portions of the property.
The Bralorne resource estimated of 2016 includes 273,123 measured and indicated tonnes grading 0.33 g/t gold and containing 91,528 oz. The inferred portion is 362,527 tonnes at 0.22 g/t and containing 83,900 oz. of gold.
