Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, June 7, 2022 – TROUBADOUR RESOURCES INC. (the “Company") (TSX VENTURE: TR) (OTC PINK: TROUF) is pleased to announce that field crews have completed a comprehensive property-wide exploration program on the Texas Property (the “Property”) located in the historic Beaverdell Mining Camp in southern B.C.
- 31 rock samples and 881 soil samples were collected, and a 29.4 line-km ground-based geophysical magnetic survey was completed.
- Past-producing Inyo-Ackworth mine workings were ground-truthed and confirmed to be on claims staked by the Company earlier this year.
- High density geochemical sampling was completed over the Golden Bug, Golden Eagle, and Midnight targets, three prospective areas that have seen limited modern exploration work to date.
- Detailed magnetic surveys were completed over the Golden Bug, Golden Eagle, Midnight and Doorn target areas.
- A man-portable backpack drill was used to drill test surface vein exposures at the Golden Bug target and was successful in collecting representative core samples for analysis.
- Property-scale geological mapping and prospecting were completed to aid in further target generation.
“We are excited by the initial findings of the field team and eagerly await the analytical results. The systematic nature of the work completed in this latest phase of exploration will lay the ground-work for the next phase of drilling, and early indications point to robust targets emerging at several prospects across the land package,” states Geoff Schellenberg, Company President.
One of the objectives of the field program was to confirm the location of the past-producing Inyo-Ackworth mine. Company geologists were able to ground-truth the location of the workings associated with the Inyo-Ackworth and confirmed that the upper and lower adit, as well as a large shaft that make up the mine workings, are located within the additional ground staked earlier this year. The Inyo-Ackworth was first discovered in 1916 and produced 3,639 grams of silver, 62 grams of gold, 1,171 kg of zinc and 1,158 kg of lead from 13 tonnes mined in 1918 and 1927 (Morrison, M., 1979, ARIS 7358). Historical mining exploited a two-meter-wide east/west trending shear zone hosting vuggy quartz-calcite veins that carried galena, native silver, sphalerite, tetrahedrite, and pyrite. Troubadour geologists collected representative rock samples of mineralized material in close proximity to the workings to confirm historically reported grades.
Very little geological information was available for the Golden Bug, Golden Eagle, and Midnight targets despite historical literature referencing historical production and precious metal grades. This makes the systematic rock, soil and geophysical work completed by the Company an important step in unlocking the potential of these areas. Numerous mineralized blast pits, workings, and trenches were encountered during the field program and subsequently mapped, sampled, or drilled with a man-portable backpack drill where possible.
The 31 rock samples and 881 soil samples collected, and the 29.4 line-km ground-based magnetics survey conducted across the Golden Bug, Golden Eagle, Midnight and Doorn targets will aid in refining targets for further follow-up work in the coming months. Results from the field program are expected to be received in the coming weeks.
