Integra Resources Corp. [ITR-TSX; ITRG-NYSE American] reported drill results from the 100%-owned DeLamar project in southwestern Idaho. The results are from the 2021 drill campaign at the War Eagle target, located approximately 3 km southeast from Florida Mountain. War Eagle continues to deliver high-grade gold-silver intercepts which are on extension from previous drilling, suggesting the presence of additional high-grade gold silver mineralization at depth and on strike.
Drill results from War Eagle target (located approximately 3 km southeast of the Florida Mountain Deposit) include drill hole IWE-21-023 that returned 3.85 g/t gold and 7.74 g/t silver (3.95 g/t AuEq) over 77.72 metres, including 97.48 g/t gold and 181.00 g/t silver (99.81 g/t AuEq) over 1.53 metres, including 23.86 g/t gold and 21.95 g/t silver (24.14 g/t AuEq) over 1.52 metres. including 6.88 g/t gold and 7.40 g/t silver (6.97 g/t AuEq) over 12.19 metres; including 35.97 g/t gold and 16.98 g/t silver (36.19 g/t AuEq) over 1.52 metres.
The 2021 drill results announced today from War Eagle are an extension of areas previously drilled by the Company, indicating the potential for a high-grade gold-silver system in the granites below previous drilling.
George Salamis, President and CEO, said, “The vast exploration potential at the DeLamar Project has always been one of the hallmarks of the Project. War Eagle has always been an attractive high-grade target at DeLamar with a rich history of historic underground mining of high-grade gold-silver. The drill results announced today are on extension from previous drilling at War Eagle and continue to demonstrate the high-grade potential at this target. The Company has now identified multiple high-grade gold-silver mineralized structures at War Eagle with strike lengths of up to 500 metres.”
Drilling at War Eagle has identified two parallel mineralized structures approximately 150 m apart with strike lengths of over 500 metres. These principal structures host high-grade gold and silver mineralization associated with quartz-pyrite veinlets within rhyolite breccias and brecciated volcano-sediments. The mineralization identified to date within the volcanics is considered to be within the diffuse cap which sits above the modelled high-grade veins within the underlying granite. The broad distribution of mineralization delineated by the soil geochemical anomalies indicates considerable lateral dispersion of mineralization within the permeable volcanic cap, possibly from a structure several hundred meters east of the known mineralized structures.
