Visible gold in an extensive vein system
The Highlands zone is located in the northwestern area of the Atsutla Gold project and entirely hosted within early Jurassic-age granite of the Christmas Creek batholith. The zone is comprised of an extensive, high-grade (>100 g/t Au) quartz vein system occurring within a 750m X 600m area with multiple coarse visible gold showings. The high-grade gold and silver veins are closely associated with a prominent gossan zone with numerous 20-50 cm thick quartz veins displaying arsenopyrite, pyrite, galena, and visible gold mineralization. Bedrock and proximal float samples have returned grades up to 630.04 g/t (18.38 oz/ton) Au and 1,894 g/t (55.25 oz/ton) Ag.
Approximately 2 km east of the Highlands zone, across the Christmas Creek valley, prospecting discovered additional high-grade quartz veins bearing many similarities to those found at the Highlands zone. A bedrock sample from a galena-rich quartz vein assayed 102 g/t Au and 524 g/t Ag. This area has been coined the Christmas Creek zone.
