After beginning mobilization last month, Grande Portage Resources (TSXV: GPG) has now officially begun the summer drill program at its flagship Herbert gold project in Alaska. The program is set to consist of an aggregate 10,000 metres of drilling.
Drilling at Herbert is to be conducted via three separate drill platforms established by the company. The main mineralized structures of the property are to be tested at depths in excess of 500 metres, as a follow-up to drilling performed last year. Structures are also expected to be intersected at shallower levels in the process.
Deep drilling is set to target the Goat, Main, and Deep Trench veins, with mineralization currently showing no signs of diminishing at depth. At the same time, one of the drill platforms established is focused on testing the eastern extensions of the Deep Trench, Floyd, and Elusive structures, which to date are largely unexplored.
“Every indication we have is that mineralization will extend to depth within the Herbert gold project. We are laser focused in our efforts to expand the Herbert’s high grade resource during the 2022 program,” said CEO Ian Klassen at the time of announcing mobilization.
The program is expected to consist at least thirteen drill holes, in addition to continued mapping and trench sampling being conducted.
Grande Portage Resources last traded at $0.20 on the TSX Venture.
