VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Highway 50 Gold Corp. (TSX.V – HWY) and Regulus Resources Inc. (TSX.V – REG)
Highway 50 Gold Corp. (“Highway 50”) and Regulus Resources Inc. (“Regulus”) (together the “companies”) announce that Regulus has terminated its option agreement on the Golden Brew property and returned the project to Highway 50.
Golden Brew is located at the intersection of the southern flank of the Eastgate volcanic trough and the Western Nevada rift in north-central Nevada. Gold mineralization at Golden Brew is hosted within jasperoid and silicified breccias over a strike length of 2,500 feet and widths up to 200 feet. The jasperoid is developed in thin-bedded limestones and limey siltstones and is anomalous in Carlin-type pathfinder elements of arsenic, antimony and mercury with gold values ranging from 0.1 grams/tonne to 4 grams/tonne
In August 2019, Regulus announced results of its drill program at Golden Brew. Regulus completed 3 holes for a total of 2,280 m to test potential for a covered Carlin style system. The most encouraging result from the drill program was from drill hole GBR-19-10. Hole 10 intersected Carlin-type mineralization within decalcified thin-bedded silty limestones from 701 m to 724 m that had anomalous gold and arsenic, up to 163 ppb gold and 475 ppm arsenic.
Highway 50 management believes a viable target remains to be tested on the property. This target is on Bureau of Land Management tenure and can be evaluated with a minimum number of holes.
