Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, October 13, 2020–X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR)(“X-Terra”) further to its news release dated September 28, 2020, has officially started drilling the Rim vein target on the Northwest property and the Grog target on the Grog property using two drills. The additional data obtained from the ground IP geophysics as well as the geochemical sampling has strongly contributed to the final planning of this drill program.
The drill section planned over the Rim vein target covers approximately 500 metres following a west north-west orientation cross cutting the main structural orientation. Gold bearing veins are believed to be concordant or parallel to the sedimentary bedding.
Michael Ferreira, President and Chief Executive Officer of X-Terra, stated; “X-Terra’s exploration team and drilling crews are excited to be drilling the Rim vein target which has never been drill tested, and given the additional gold-in-soil anomalies, it highlights the compelling possibility of a stacking of gold bearing veins below. The Rim vein target has yielded incredible gold grades from 4.5 g/t Au to 1,205 g/t Au with visible gold –(See X-Terra’s press release dated December 5, 2018). Its fantastic that we were able to secure a second drill to begin drilling the Grog target at the same time,as this should reduce the wait time for the first batch of results. Furthermore, this will be X-Terra’s largest drill program completed on any of its properties to date”.
In additional news, X-Terra has mandated ExploLab of Val d’Or, Québec to carry out a bench scale metallurgical test using 129 kilograms of material originating from the Rim vein to evaluate the recovery model by gravimetric analysis. The goal of this metallurgical test at this early stage is to determine how the material will respond to this conventional process and how much metal (gold) can be recovered.
