Go Metals Samples 22.3% Cu on Monster IOCG
Vancouver, August 29, 2019 - Go Metals Corp. (CSE: GOCO) ("Go Metals" and/or the "Company") is pleased to update regarding its exploration program on the 100% owned IOCG Monster Project ("Property") in the Yukon, Canada. Go Metals reports the following:
- Assay results of 90 grab samples
- Copper grades average 1.1% Cu and range up to 22.3% Cu
- Cobalt grades average 0.08% and range up to 1.5%
- Silver grades up to 52 g/t and range up to 3 g/t
- Gold grades average 0.03 g/t Au and range up to 0.5 g/t Au
- Mineralization is associated with increased hematite and chlorite alteration
Go Metals has received assay results of 90 grab samples collected during its 2019 exploration program on the claim. The samples were collected around the Arena, Bloom and Beast targets. Over 10 new surface showings were discovered this summer.
The alteration mapping focuses on mapping zones of carbonate, quartz-carbonate, jasper-hematite, specular hematite, and chloritic alteration. Increased hematite and particularly chlorite alteration are associated with mineralization. The geophysical processing, alteration mapping, and geochemical data are all being used to define new drill targets on the Monster project.
The sampling and metal association helps confirm the presence of IOCG style mineralization on the Monster Property. The alteration mapping adds further evidence of IOCG style mineralization with intense chlorite and specular hematite alteration as important vectors to mineralization. The alteration mapping will be crucial for vectoring to mineralization in future drill programs.
Data presentation, disclaimer and QAQC
The samples reported in this release are grab samples from outcrop, they are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted across the property.
Samples were analyzed by MS analytical in Langley, BC, using a combination mass spectrometry with aqua-regia solution. Over-limits for Cu and Co were analyzed using ore-grade analyses with ICP-AES after aqua regia dissolution and (in case of a second over-limit) 4-acid dissolution. Each sample which yielded detectable Au through mass spectrometry was also analyzed using fire assay. Duplicates and standards were inserted by MS analytical using standard laboratory procedures. All duplicates and blanks yielded values within acceptable limits.
Cu, Co, Ag, Au of samples with CuEq(%) > 5. The CuEq (copper equivalent) was calculated using Co=14 USD/lb, Cu=2.5 USD/lb, Ag=17 USD/oz and Au=1500 USD/oz.
