White Gold Corp. has announced a new drill intersection highlighting their exploration efforts in the Betty Ford Target, located in the White Gold District in Yukon. The intersection obtained by White Gold Corp. highlights 5.03 g/t of gold over 25.0 m within 2.96 g/t of gold over 46.5 m. This new discovery significantly expands the width of the near surface gold zone by 50%, thus further enhancing White Gold Corp’s potential.
The core interval of the drill intersection is approximately 150 m below the near surface zone of the Betty Ford target. This indicates that the Betty Ford zone has excellent potential to continue to expand along strike and down dip. Further exploration of the White Gold District is still underway.
The Betty Ford Target Zone lies on a number of regional scale structural features including a major NE-trending shear zone and several northwest trending structures. This is significant as it is important for potential gold deposits, such as those found in the district. Previous drilling has shown the presence of wide near surface zones of gold mineralization. These zones remain open in all directions and the new drill intersection further confirms their potential for expansion.
White Gold Corp. is a precious metal exploration company focusing on the White Gold District in Yukon, Canada. They hold the majority of the region’s land position and have provided numerous drill intersections highlighting the gold potential of the district. The White Gold District is host to world class gold projects such as Kinross’ Coffee gold deposit as well as several significant past producing gold mines. The favorable geology and White Gold Corp.’s significant land position further highlights its significance as a potential gold district.
The substantial width and grade of White Gold Corp.’s new intersection further strengthens its exploration and development efforts in the White Gold District. This new discovery further highlights the potential of the White Gold District as a highly prospective area for further exploration.
