Angold Resources Begins Drilling at Dorado

12.01.2021  |  CNW

VANCOUVER, Jan. 12, 2021 - Angold Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AAU) (FRA: 13L1) ("Angold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced its drill program on the Lajitas target at its Dorado Project in the Maricunga Belt of Northern Chile.

Angold intends to drill 5,000 m of HQ core on Dorado. Drilling is planned for 10 drill holes, each with a depth of 500 m in the Lajitas area (see Figure 3), to identify mineralization beyond historically reported resources and to confirm historic intercepts.

Angold's CEO, Mr. Adrian Rothwell, stated: "We have put an experienced team and seed capital to work early at Dorado, beginning regional exploration and sampling programs last year. This has highlighted a larger footprint to the resource areas than previously thought and will improve the success of this preliminary 5,000 m drill program. Dorado has the potential to host multiple multi-million ounce gold deposits in a geological setting that is now better understood than when previous operators worked on the central part of the project in the 1990's and 2000's. With additional staked ground (of about 15,000 ha), local logistical and technical teams, and infrastructure at site we are able to commence drilling quickly. We look forward to an exciting 2021!"

The drill holes are intended to achieve the following goals:

1. Step out to test strike and depth extensions of the mineralization on the project and infill between historic holes. Historic drill intercepts included 318 m @ 0.68 g/t Au and 261 m @ 0.91 g/t Au. Of the historic drill assays, 243 exceeded 1 g/t Au and ranged up to 6.92 g/t Au (Hole ID SF03). Table 1 lists selected historic drill highlights.

2. Validate historic drill data that formed the basis for a historic resource on the project, so that Angold may use the existing data in a new resource and subsequent drill programs.

3. Gather structure, lithology, alteration, trace element, and density data to build a geologic model for the deposit, which is currently preliminary. The intent of the geologic model is to better understand the structure, geochemistry, and alteration of the deposit to allow vectoring toward more tonnes and higher grade, and to inform exploration for other targets on the project.

4. Generate data for additional drilling at Lajitas, as well as exploration and drilling on additional targets on the project.

REGIONAL EXPLORATION AT DORADO
A regional exploration program on the Dorado Project began on December 12th. The exploration plan is designed to test initial targets identified with geologic screening, ASTER hyperspectral processing, structural interpretation, image colour anomalies, and detailed knowledge of other deposits and mineralization styles in the region (Figures 3 & 4). The first-priority target on the project is Lajitas South, an area 1.5 x 2 km in extent underlain by magnetic, IP chargeability, and hyperspectral anomalies that remains untested.

The Dorado exploration program is planned to include geologic mapping and sampling, magnetic surveys, talus fine sample grids, hyperspectral interpretation of all rock and talus fines samples, IDH analysis of talus fines samples (inverse-differential hydrogen, an indication of oxidizing sulfide minerals at depth), and selected IP-resistivity surveys over areas of promising results. Geologic mapping and sampling has begun, and 178 talus fines samples have been collected and delivered to ALS Minerals laboratory (Figure 5).

The Company staked eight new exploration concessions (additional to those staked in the Company's corporate update on November 5, 2020, as posted on www.sedar.com and www.angoldresources.com) totaling approximately 2,100 hectares, covering available prospective ground between existing Angold concessions and those owned by Kinross and other companies.

DRILL CORE RELOGGING
In preparation for Angold's drill program the Company's geologic team has been re-logging drill core from previous campaigns, noting alteration types, lithologies, veinlet types, and crosscutting vein relations. Mineralization, alteration, and host rocks observed so far are typical of Maricunga style gold porphyry and epithermal deposits, consisting of multi-stage quartz diorite intrusions and volcanic host rocks and numerous alteration assemblages indicative of porphyry and epithermal systems. Mineralization observed in historic core consists of banded quartz veins (quartz-pyrite-magnetite), A-veins (quartz-chalcopyrite-pyrite), and T-veins (grey quartz), all of which are characteristic of economic deposits in the Maricunga Belt.
