Clarity Gold Corp. (CSE: CLAR) is pleased to announce that it has finalized plans and is mobilizing a field crew to its recently acquired properties located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia , the Tyber and the Gretna Green Projects.
The field crew will consist of a three-person team who will be conducting initial ground reconnaissance and sampling. The objective of the program will be to review the geology and mineralization, locate and verify historic mineral showings, and assess the properties for geochemical sampling. The company will also be conducting a grab sample program on targeted zones to locate additional areas of interest. The goal of the site visit is to design an effective exploration strategy for the Tyber and Gretna Green Projects.
“We are very pleased to be getting started on our 2020 exploration program on Vancouver Island,” said CEO James Rogers . “The Tyber and Gretna Green projects have not seen modern exploration and we are looking forward to designing and carrying out field programs to follow up on encouraging historic results.”
The 928 ha Tyber gold-copper-silver project (the “Tyber Project“) is located in southeast Vancouver Island in the Nanaimo mining division, approximately 1.4 km south of Arrowsmith Lake and 18 km Southwest of Parksville . Historic rock samples taken from the property between 1916 and 1986 assayed up to 2.328 oz/t Au (from historic adit dump), 16% Cu and 305.5 oz/t Ag (1916 BC Mines Annual Report; Minfile 092F236). The Tyber Project consists of several mineralized shear zones ranging from less than 0.30 m to 2.60 m . Two historical adits on the Tyber Project, believed to be targeting mineralized quartz veins within local shear zones, extend approximately 14 m and 47 m in length (1981 Assessment Report 09432).
The Clarity Gold Corp. Qualified Person has not verified the results of the historic exploration and sampling at the Tyber Project, additional sampling would be required to verify the data.
Gretna Green Project
The Gretna Green gold-copper-silver project (the “Gretna Green Project“) is 1,331 ha and is located in the Alberni mining division, approximately 24 km Southwest of Port Alberni and 1.3 km North of Henderson Lake. Historical reports show that a selected sample assayed 48.00 grams per tonne gold, 51.43 grams per tonne silver and 17.8 percent copper (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1921; Minfile 092F24). Limited information on the Gretna Green Project is available, however the QP (as defined below) believes the project warrants further exploration.
The Clarity Gold Corp. Qualified Person has not verified the results of the historic exploration and sampling at the Gretna Green Project, additional sampling would be required to verify the data.
Mr. Rory Kutluoglu P. Geo . is the Qualified Person (“QP“) under NI 43-101 for the technical information in this news release and has reviewed the appropriate and available data for the Empirical Project, Tyber Project and Gretna Green Project and approves the technical contents of this news release. The QP intends to visit the additional Empirical Project claims, Tyber Project and Gretna Green Project shortly and thus cannot validate the historical databases nor the results of the historical work presented herein.
