Grande Portage Resources (TSXV: GPG) is getting ready for the 2022 exploration season even as it awaits the results from its 2021 program. The firm this morning revealed its drill plan for the oncoming season at its flagship Herbert Gold project in Alaska.
The oncoming season will see the firm conduct a 10,000 metre diamond drill program, via two drill rigs. Currently, the firm intends to drill at least 13 holes under the program, with mapping and trench sampling also to take place.
The planned holes are to be drilled to depths of 750 metres and beyond, with the focus being the intercept of the main mineralized structures on the property, with shallower structures to be intersected along the way. Deep drilling is being undertaken as a result of shallow mineralization having successfully been tested under prior drill programs.
Drilling is expected to occur from up to three drill pads, where fan drilling will be conducted to eliminate drill relocations. Deep drilling is slated to occur on the Goat, Main and Deep Trench veins, while extension drilling to the east is planned for the Floyd, Elusive and Deep Trench veins. This extension drilling is being conducted to demonstrate that mineralization occurs at depths between two and three times deeper than the current resource estimate suggests, while also looking to test a poorly exposed section of the property.
Lastly, the firm expects to receive assay results from its 2021 program “imminently.”
Grande Portage Resources last traded at $0.53 on the TSX Venture.
