Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, May 4, 2021 – TROUBADOUR RESOURCES INC. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: TR) (OTC PINK: TROUF) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its planned drill program on the 2,186-hectare Texas property located near the town of Beaverdell in southern B.C.
The program will consist of a minimum of 2,000 meters of diamond drilling and is designed to test a number of newly identified geophysical and geochemical targets, as well as to explore the sub-surface extent of bonanza grade samples at the Doorn target. Phase 1 rock sampling results from the Doorn target area include 373.8 g/t (12 oz/t) gold and 1305 g/t (42 oz/t) silver and 220.1 g/t (7 oz/t) gold and 827 g/t (26 oz/t) silver from grab samples* (see Company news release dated March 10, 2021). Troubadour geologists believe they now have a much better understanding of the mineralization controls and the potential source of mineralization at the Doorn, and have designed the drill program based off of this model.
*Grab samples are by definition selective. Grab samples are solely designed to show the presence or absence of mineralization, and are not intended to provide nor should be construed as a representative indication of grade or mineralization at the Project.
"We are excited to finally drill this highly prospective target in an underexplored area of the historic Beaverdell mining camp. Results from surface sampling have shown the potential for both bonanza-grade and bulk tonnage intercepts. The ease of access, availability of infrastructure and good early season weather should allow for a very efficient program," states Geoff Schellenberg, Company President.
About the Texas Project
The road accessible Texas property covers historical mineral showings and is located 3 km southwest of the town of Beaverdell and in close proximity to the past producing Beaverdell Mine1 that was in operation from 1896 to 1991. The property covers ground prospective for vein hosted and bulk tonnage precious metal deposits, based on at least seven historical and newly discovered gold occurrences on the property and geological comparisons with the nearby Beaverdell Mine1. Several showings are present on the property, including two old mines and many older trenches, pits and adits that expose mineralized veins. The Beaverdell mining camp is predominately known for its silver production and the presence of high-grade gold occurrences makes the Texas property unique and significantly more attractive.
- Referenced nearby historic resources, deposits and mines provide geologic context for the Project, but are not necessarily indicative that the Project hosts similar potential, size or grades of mineralization.
